https://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino...those-arrested-post-hurricane-puerto-n1051966 Puerto Rico's lead federal prosecutor, Rosa Emilia Rodríguez, announced Tuesday that three people have been arrested as part of a federal probe into an alleged fraud scheme involving former FEMA officials and hurricane relief funds. They face 15 counts including wire and disaster fraud as well as conspiracy to commit fraud. Tribble, Patterson and Ellison had come to Puerto Rico in October 2017 as part of the federal government's hurricane recovery efforts, specifically to restore the U.S. territory’s electric power grid. Its destruction had caused the world's second longest blackout. According to the indictment filed last week, both Tribble and Patterson received gifts such as hotel stays, access to credit cards and an apartment in New York in exchange for helping Ellison and COBRA Acquisition land hurricane recovery contracts in Puerto Rico. COBRA Acquisition obtained two contracts worth over $1.8 billion combined while Tribble was overseeing FEMA's work and Ellison was COBRA's president. ________________________ Glad corruption is actually being dealt with in terms of arrests and federal criminal charges, rather than useless fines. Unclear as of yet if the higher up to blame fault is on Trump or not. Trump has long blamed corruption in Puerto Rico as the reason why recovery efforts have been slow. Don't know if this is some definite proof of that, or if the people arrested were put to their posts by Trump or enabled by the swamp creatures and not removed long before this.
