Corrupt officials in Puerto Rico have been put on notice. The Washington Examiner reports:
FBI agents raided a building Tuesday in Puerto Rico’s capital city of San Juan that is home to municipal offices associated with the administration of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, a vocal political opponent of President Trump’s.
“More than 10” but “less than 50” agents based on the Caribbean island arrived at the Municipal Tower at 9 a.m. ET and were still conducting the operation as of 2:30 p.m. when FBI spokesman for the U.S. territory, Carlos Osorio, spoke by phone with the Washington Examiner in the afternoon Tuesday. Osorio described the operation as “pretty big.”
Agents were seen entering the Municipal Tower with dozens of empty boxes. The federal agents deployed to the third, fourth, 14th, and 15th floors of the 16-floor building, Osorio said. They were looking for any paper and electronic documents related to “corruption” inside the city administration’s purchasing and contracting departments.
The raid comes a month after Trump tweeted a quote from Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs that said the U.S. territory’s government was “corrupt” while fuming over the raised death toll count in Puerto Rico from last year’s Hurricane Maria.
This should be a wake up call for all corrupt officials in government.
