Re: Today in Trump
If Imran Awan is playing ball then it's obvious he gets a plea deal right? I mean let's face it, he's going to jail....that whole "Aw, I'm just trying to help my sick father in Pakistan" excuse falls apart in the very article you chose to cite:
Correction: July 5, 2018
An earlier version of this article, using information from Mr. Awan’s lawyer, referred incorrectly to a transfer of money by Mr. Awan. According to his lawyer, he sent money to Pakistan to help his father; he did not send it directly to his father. And his father had been living in Virginia, not Pakistan, before his death in January 2017.
So Imran Awan sent that money to Pakistan for his father.....who at that time was living in Virginia
and in the plea deal it states (as one would expect any plea deal to say):
Your client understands and agrees that, if after entering this Agreement, your client fails
specifically to perform or to fulfill completely each and every one of your client's obligations
under this Agreement, or engages in any criminal activity prior to sentencing, your client will
have breached this Agreement. In the event of such a breach: (a) the Government will be free
from its obligations under this Agreement; (b) your client will not have the right to withdraw the
guilty plea; (c) your client will be fully subject to criminal prosecution for any other crimes,
including perjury and obstruction ofjustice; and (d) the Govemment will be free to use against
your client, directly and indirectly, in any criminal or civil proceeding, all statements made by
your client and any of the information or materials provided by your client, including such
statements, information and materials provided pursuant to this Agreement or during the course
of any debriefings conducted in anticipation of, or after entry of, this Agreement, whether or not
the debriefings were previously characterized as "off-the-record" debriefings, and including your
client's statements made during proceedings before the Court pursuant to Rule 11 of the Federal
Rules of Criminal Procedure.
Your client understands and agrees that the Government shall be required to prove a
breach of this Agreement only by a preponderance of the evidence, except where such breach is
based on a violation of federal, state, or local criminal law, which the Government need prove
only by probable cause in order to establish a breach of this Agteement.
Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to permit your client to commit perjury, to
make false statements or declarations, to obstruct justice, or to protect your client from
prosecution for any crimes not included within this Agreement or committed by your client after
the execution of this Agreement. Your client understands and agrees that the Govemment
reserves the right to prosecute your client for any such offenses. Your client further understands
that any perjury, false statements or declarations, or obstruction ofjustice relating to your client's
obligations under this Agreement shall constitute a breach of this Agreement. In the event of
such a breach, your client will not be allowed to withdraw your client's guilty plea
So Imran Awan is either getting light treatment because he's giving up others in a bigger plot (uh oh Kirkland) or he's guilty of even more and he just wants to take the charges instead of there being perhaps a charge of treason leveled against him...treason being one of the hardest charges to stick on someone.
So your pooh poohing of Imran Awan going to jail....he's AGREEING to go to jail Kirkland....it doesn't really seem like a "win" for your side. It seems like a signed affidavit just might open up a can of worms. I'd again point you in the direction of the sealed indictments, but I know you, you're not going to believe it even when bigger things start happening. back when I posted about Awan you responded:
You are very trusting of the Obama administration....Valerie Jarrett had ties to Iran, Huma Abedin has direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood....I mean with Dick Cheney's ties to Halliburton you were 100% on it, but I guess somehow these ladies and their ties to the Militant Islamist Extremist communities you're ok with or blind to or not worried at all about
