    The FBI in Puerto Rico have confirmed the allegations the supplies have been withheld for some people by officials in PR.  This is unforgivable.

    http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/12/fbi-r … ne-relief/

    "According to Osorio, there are claims that despite delivery of hurricane relief by FEMA assisted by other federal officials like the FBI to town centers for example, local officials will first distribute the relief to their political allies once federal officials leave the area."

    Governor Ricardo Rosselló is in charge?  Really! 

    "As of now, the FBI is aware of six municipalities among Puerto Rico’s 78 municipalities where such activity is allegedly happening. The U.S. federal prosecutor on the island, Rosa Emilia Rodriguez, ... said she is looking into these claims and is ready to criminally prosecute any official who withholds relief."

    Well, there goes the fake news narrative!   

    I do know some privet citizens that have been flying in supplies to people who hadn't received any aid from their officials as of a day ago, nothing.  If they have cash they can go buy water and food, but not everyone had or has cash because ATM's are down.  They may get an ATM up and running but then the generator blows up, stuff like that keeps happening.  Thankfully, government officials, anyone in PR caught withholding supplies will be tossed on their ear hard.

    That's Biased News, the Daily Caller was founded in 2010 by Tucker Carlson, a 20-year veteran journalist and Fox News commentator.

    Seems only Faux etal entertainment news is propagandizing this.

    Like a bunch of freaking Ruskie  bots, they are triangulating biased news for cheap as$$ ratings. Please stop spreading propaganda meant to destroy and divide Americans. It's a trick for people already biased against brown skinned people who speak Spanish to portray them as without morals.

    Who is the one without morals? Whoever spreads this lie.

    talk to him yourself Special Agent Carlos Osorio

    "Again, I cannot say that we have any ongoing investigation. We’re just corroborating these allegations.”

      The US Attorney in Puerto Rico is investigating official who was keeping supplies for "constituents who had voted for them".

      BTW, Tucker Carlson is an good honest man.  The Daily Caller isn't fake news, they actually sight their legitimate sources.

        What? Your post makes no sense. 'sight their sources' -with what, sniper rifles? lol

        "This is not the time to do politics ... this is the time to help and to be kind to others. This is a tragedy and nobody should take advantage of the aid, "said Rodriguez, adding that if they manage to prove the indications, the accusations will arrive" no matter which party, or whoever. "

        if someone is committing a crime, receiving supplies and using them for their known people that is a crime and will investigate" .

        Are you saying https://www.allsides.com/ is fake news -it includes all the news, including you precious DailyCaller by cuck Tucker Carlson

          I hadn't ever heard of allsides.  So, why ask me such a stupid question?  Never mind, I do get it!

          I am concerned, I actually do care that every person is receiving supplies in PR.  I love people, but don't care for anyone who withholds supplies to anyone. That, is unforgivable, unless they repent and turn away from their wicked ways.  I'm glad the issue is getting some attention.

          I had not thought of Tucker as precious before.  I look at him as a straight upstanding man, who is respectable.  He sure is good at debating liberals and slapping them upside the head with truth bombs as they make themselves look foolish. I like the way he laughs at them. Its funny!

    FBI agents in Puerto Rico have been receiving calls from "across the island" with residents complaining local officials are "withholding" or "mishandling" critical FEMA supplies.

    Geraldo Gets Back From Puerto Rico, Blows Lid Off What’s Been Happening To Trump
    '...worst, most dishonest press...'
    https://www.westernjournalism.com/geral … -to-trump/

    "Contrary to the allegations of a biased media, the people of Puerto Rico were very happy that President Donald Trump came to the island to survey the damage from Hurricane Maria, Geraldo Rivera said Friday on Fox & Friends.

    “He has been getting the worst, most dishonest press about his visit to Puerto Rico,” Rivera said.

    “It is staggering to me how unfair — how grotesquely unfair — the reporting has been,” he added.

    Rivera, whose family lives in Puerto Rico, saw Trump’s visit firsthand and said 90 to 95 percent of the people Trump met were enthusiastic about his visit.

    He said the media distorts reality."  --  That's the truth!

    Puerto Rican Secretary of State, Luis Rivera Marín, found US aid sent for hurricane victims in dumpster.

    "The video shows countless unopened boxes full of ready-to-eat meals in a dumpster, presumably thrown away by Puerto Rican officials. The video was shot in Patillas, a city on the island’s southeastern coast."
