Well, doesn’t this just blow up the media’s narrative? Metro a media outlet on the island just dropped a bombshell.
That the U.S. Attorney in San Juan just opened an investigation local mayors around Puerto Rico who have reportedly been withholding supplies from residents.
But not all residents. According to the shocking report, “constituents who had voted for them” are getting all the aid they need.
Just not those who voted against them.
According to Zero Hedge, federal prosecutor Rosa Emilia Rodriguez confirmed that she is investigating officials in the government, including mayors:
“This morning we received information from a town on the Island where a person close to the municipal administration was asking one of our federal agents that the supplies that were there could not be touched because they were for his mayor,” said Rodríguez.
“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, before adding that justice will be swift and severe if true “no matter which party, or whoever.”
To be clear the San Juan Mayor nor any Mayor has been named. The report just says mayors. It did not name names.

But we all remember what she told George Stephanopoulos when she admitted she never even met with FEMA. So she has no credibility.
George pressed her on her earlier lies asking,
“The president’s FEMA director is suggesting you’re not really plugged in. Yesterday, he said you need to make your way to the joint field office and get plugged in to what’s going on. Have you been to the joint field office? And if not, why not?”
She literally left viewers laughing out loud with her response.
“Well, number one, I got a call from the White House a couple of days ago. I think it was Thursday. Mr. Bossert took it upon himself to call and I was very glad that he called. He seemed to be a very action-prone — a guy that does what he says and says what he does,” Cruz said.
“So we got appointed a FEMA coordinator. We have two people that are appointed to San Juan. We are the capital city, the largest city in Puerto Rico, with the most amount of population. And we got appointed just — direct links. So, actually, I was in FEMA the couple of days afterwards. When they were at the San Juan Marriott, I was invited to visit and we have been communicating ever since.”
She kept going, digger an even deeper grave,
“Things have to be done in a sustained manner. If I only get for a population of 350,000 or perhaps half of them are in need of food and water, sustained supplies, then, you know, I get four pallets of food, three pallets of water, that’s really not even going to provide for a dent. The supply chain of aid has to be sustained. And we have the logistics in order to do that.”
“Will you meet with them?” Stephanopoulos asked. She stammered back: “People from my administration, people from my administration have been to the — yes.”
After you meet them will you go back on TV and apologize? We will be waiting for it.
