Remember when President Trump claimed in April that “corrupt or incompetent” Puerto Rico officials had badly bungled relief efforts following 2017’s Hurricane Maria?
Remember how poorly politicos and journalists reacted to the president’s allegation, claiming that he was lying or being plain racist?
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.
