FBI Arrests FEMA Officials For Hurricane Maria Relief Fraud, One Was Top Obama Adviser

Published

So, Obama doesn’t have any scandals? This just proves that is untrue. We will find out more and more that the Obama Administration was filled with scandals and corruption.

Via Daily Wire:

President Trump has repeatedly slammed Puerto Rican officials for their handling of the Hurricane Maria relief effort, decrying the unincorporated U.S. territory as “one of the most corrupt places on earth.” On Tuesday, the FBI took action to crack down on corruption involving Maria relief, though rather than targeting Puerto Rican leaders, the bureau arrested two former FEMA officials — one of whom held a key position in the Obama administration — and a contractor.

“Puerto Rico is one of the most corrupt places on earth. Their political system is broken and their politicians are either Incompetent or Corrupt,” Trump tweeted as Hurricane Dorian picked up steam two weeks ago. “Congress approved Billions of Dollars last time, more than anyplace else has ever gotten, and it is sent to Crooked Pols. No good!”

Trump’s criticism of Puerto Rican officials has been one of his steady themes since the devastating hurricane wreaked havoc on the island in 2017. Amid criticism for his supposedly “tepid response” to the disaster, Trump has repeatedly pointed the finger at Puerto Rico’s leadership, accusing them of botching the relief effort and wasting resources.

On Tuesday, Trump’s “corruption” claims about Hurricane Maria relief efforts were partly affirmed, but the alleged culprits were two former federal officials and a contractor, not Puerto Rican officials.

“A former top administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency was arrested on Tuesday in a major federal corruption investigation that found that the official took bribes from the president of a company that secured $1.8 billion in federal contracts to repair Puerto Rico’s shredded electrical grid after Hurricane Maria,” The New York Times reported Tuesday.

The most high-profile of the arrests was Ahsha Tribble, FEMA’s former deputy administrator for the region including Puerto Rico who also once served as Homeland Security adviser for the Obama administration. A second former FEMA employee, Jovanda Patterson, who served as deputy chief of staff in Puerto Rico, was also arrested. The third suspect is Donald Keith Ellison, former president of Cobra Acquisitions.

Puerto Rico’s U.S Attorney Rosa Emilia Rodríguez Vélez revealed Tuesday that Tribble had a “close personal relationship” with Ellison, the Times notes. Cobra Acquisitions went on to hire Patterson, according to Vélez.

Prosecutors say Tribble, Patterson and Ellison defrauded the federal government. Ellison allegedly offered Tribble a “stream of benefits,” including helping her get an apartment in New York, first-class airplane tickets, hotel stays, and the use of one of his credit cards in exchange for Tribble helping secure a major contract for Ellison’s company. The indictment alleges that Tribble and Ellison attempted to conceal their special relationship and gifts through various means, including using a disposable cellphone.

“In return for the gifts, Ms. Tribble is accused of performing official acts to advance Cobra’s interests,” the Times details. “For example, according to the indictment, in February 2018, after the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority reported an explosion at a substation in Monacillo, P.R., that left several municipalities without power, Ms. Tribble insisted that the public utility hire Cobra to make repairs or risk not getting reimbursed by FEMA — even though leaders of the utility insisted they could do the same work at a far lower cost.”

Thank God for our Border Patrol. Sanctuary politicians are working against them, like in Maryland where the 9th illegal alien sex predator has been arrested, but our Border Patrol & ICE agents are scooping them up as fast as they can.

Fox5 San Diego is reporting:

SAN DIEGO — U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested five people Saturday night who were involved in a human smuggling event, officials said. Included in the group was a man who had two prior felony arrests and more than 10 years of prison time.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., Border Patrol agents near Tecate, California, observed a suspicious vehicle traveling on State Route 94. The driver noticed an agent behind him as he drove his 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, officials said. He tried to swerve out of the way of the agent but was blocked by another car.

The agent pulled over the suspicious sedan and questioned five people in the car. Three passengers in the backseat claimed to be from Mexico and said they did not have documentation that allowed them to be in the U.S., agents added.

All five were arrested and taken to a nearby station. During routine processing, it was revealed that one of the men who claimed to be a Mexican national was actually from El Salvador and had a criminal history, which included indecent liberties with a child and possession of a controlled substance.

The driver and front passenger, who are U.S. citizens, face human smuggling charges and the El Salvadoran man faces Federal charges for criminal re-entry. The vehicle was seized by the U.S. Border Patrol.

DULZURA, Calif. — U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested five people Saturday night who were involved in a human smuggling event. Included in the group was a man who had two prior felony arrests and more than 10 years prison time.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., on September 14, Border Patrol agents near Tecate, Calif., observed a suspicious vehicle traveling on State Route 94.

Have you had enough yet, folks? How many more of our women and children have to be raped for this insanity to stop?

This is what the left wants. They don’t care about the safety of the American people. Illegal immigration must end.

Via Breitbart:

An illegal alien has been arrested after allegedly raping a woman in the sanctuary county of Montgomery County, Maryland, making the ninth illegal alien to be charged with rape or sex crimes against children in less than two months in the region.

According to ABC 7 News’ Kevin Lewis, 23-year-old illegal alien Josue Gomez-Gonzalez was arrested this week after he allegedly raped a female friend of his who was intoxicated at the time of the sexual assault.

A police report obtained by Lewis details how Gomez-Gonzalez allegedly attempted to force himself on the woman while the two were in his car. After taking the woman back to his apartment, as she was intoxicated and cannot remember parts of the evening, the woman told police that Gomez-Gonzalez raped her.

The next morning, the woman woke up to serious vaginal pain and called police, who took her to a nearby hospital where a rape kit was administered.

After identifying Gomez-Gonzalez as her rapist, police questioned the illegal alien, and they said he admitted to raping the woman while in his car and sexually assaulting her. Continue Reading

Via ABC7:

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. — In the wake of heated protests centered on illegal immigration in Maryland’s most populated county, authorities there have arrested an undocumented immigrant for the alleged rape of an intoxicated woman.

Josue A. Gomez-Gonzalez, 23, of Gaithersburg, is charged with second-degree rape and second-degree assault.

Around 4:30 p.m. on September 10, police say Gomez-Gonzalez picked up his female friend with plans to take her out to dinner. On the way to the restaurant, the two stopped at a liquor store and purchased a bottle of Hennessy cognac. They then drove to a park in Gaithersburg where they managed to polish off the entire bottle, according to investigators.

The victim recalled feeling extremely drowsy and says she started to doze off in the car. That’s when Gomez-Gonzalez allegedly began to kiss her and tried to “pull down her leggings.”

“Each time Victim A told Gomez-Gonzalez to stop, that she would scream or she would call the police,” Montgomery County special victims detectives wrote in court documents.

Walking Up Kolfage's Border Wall – Final Day Of Construction

This is a video I shot on the day we were placing the final bollard section at the top of Airman Kolfage's border wall we built. I walked from the bottom to the top. It was around 100 degrees out. I was on the mountain 15 hours that day (It was actually my birthday), documenting the final section being put in. I sped up the video so it's in time-lapse format. Projects 2 & 3 are starting soon.

The victim remembered exiting the car at one point to urinate in a bush. As she walked back, she fell to the ground due to her level of intoxication. Gomez-Gonzalez — who is 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds — allegedly called two of his friends to help carry the victim back to his car.

“Wow, she’s really fu—- up,” one of those friends reportedly stated upon seeing the woman.

The victim told detectives she had memories of Gomez-Gonzalez later leading her up the main steps to his town home along the 200 block of Garth Terrace in Gaithersburg, located near the Lakeforest Mall. Once inside the residence, Gomez-Gonzalez allegedly kissed the victim’s face, neck and breasts, stripped down and got on top of her.

The victim says she attempted to push Gomez-Gonzalez off and managed to hit him the chest, but to no avail. Then she passed out, saying she awoke the following morning with intense pain.

“When Victim A went to the bathroom she noticed she was bleeding,” detectives noted in court documents. “Victim A noticed Gomez-Gonzalez had already left for work by the time she woke up. Victim A immediately called the police who responded and transported Victim A to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital where she consented to a Sexual Assault Forensic Exam.” Continue Reading
