"I believe that I did the right thing, and I would do it again", Wasserman Schultz told the Sun Sentinel on Thursday.

Imran Awan, 37, was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at Dulles International Airport in Virginia on Monday as he attempted to fly to Qatar then Pakistan.

"I had grave concerns about his due process rights being violated", Wasserman Schultz said.

'I had grave concerns about his due process rights being violated, ' she told the Florida Sun Suntinal.

"He is from Pakistan", Wasserman Schultz told the Sun Sentinel. "It would have been easier for me to just fire him", she said. She threatened "consequences" if they did not return it and refused to kick Awan off her payroll despite him being a target of a cybersecurity investigation. "There are times when you can't be afraid to stand alone, and you have to stand up for what's right".

Authorities had been watching him for months as part of an investigation into information and equipment theft. Wasserman Schultz says she has him help her with other "technological issues".

On Monday, he was arrested on suspicion of banking fraud for allegedly taking out a $165,000 loan with his wife on a house that they did not live in and sending the money back to Pakistan.

Now, Wasserman Schultz is denying the laptop in question was even hers.

'This was not my laptop. "I don't know what's on that laptop". Yes or no?' she asked, the Daily Caller reported.

DeSantis also said he anticipates receiving a full briefing from Capitol Hill police on the matter in the near future.

And she stressed his roots in the U.S.

The Florida Democrat dismissed right-wing conspiracy theories that Awan was attempting to "flee" the country when he was arrested, pointing to the unpaid leave of absence forms he filled out with her chief of staff before he left. His children are natural born citizens.
