    FBI arrests ex-Puerto Rico officials for disaster aid-funded payoffs

    The FBI has arrested two former Puerto Rico officials for funneling disaster aid payments to politically connected contractors.

    The Wednesday arrests have prompted concern on Capitol Hill that the island’s corruption will blunt the effectiveness of a recently passed disaster aid bill. Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz., has called for Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló's resignation, according to the Washington Post.

    The FBI indictment charges Puerto Rico's former Education Secretary Julia Keleher, former Health Insurance Agency Chief Ángela Ávila-Marrero, and four others with crimes related to grifting U.S. disaster aid. Keleher and Ávila-Marrero both served in Rosselló's administration before leaving in April and June, respectively.
    Trump called out Puerto Rican corruption back at the beginning of the Hurricane Maria relief efforts, and was condemned for it by the MSM. Just this past April, the same media-charade played out. Now, nearly 2 years after the hurricane, we see yet another example of how hurricane relief was mishandled and siphoned off by corruption. Trump was and is correct: not brilliant, just calling out what many want to sweep under the rug and kick down the road.

    Dollar-signs were chuh-chinging in Puerto Rican Official's eyes the very second the National Weather Service said the island was in the hurricane's path.
