According to DNC sources, back in February, Awan also came under investigation for the theft of equipment from the DNC which ultimately caused his dismissal by all the offices except that of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Schultz’s office fired him last Monday, right after the arrest.
With the recent death of former GOP operative, Peter Smith who sought missing emails from Hillary Clinton’s server and the mysterious high profile death of DNC staffer Seth Rich last year, it is not unreasonable to suspect that Awan’s days will be numbered. But these are only the most recent deaths connected to Clinton, some estimates show a potential of at least 30 deaths total.
Former homicide detective and Seth Rich private investigator Rod Wheeler, tweeted on July 26, two days following Imran Awan’s arrest, “ Follow the arrest of Awan closely. Connect the dots to “other” cases(hint,hint) Just the beginning. Stay tuned.”
Seth Rich was the victim of what the Washington DC police department refers to as a “botched robbery.” However, circumstances surrounding the case make it more likely that his internal access to DNC information, particularly incriminating emails, caused his death. At around the time of Seth Rich’s death, high ranking Clinton operative, John Podesta had sent an email that stated the he wanted to essentially make “an example” out of a DNC leaker even if it was without basis.
Wheeler has been issued a gag order by a judge that prevents him from commenting too deeply on the Rich case, but his tweet on the 26th was obviously made to link the Awan arrest due to the similarity of the type of information that he had access to.
