Remember the anti-Trump Puerto Rico mayor? The FBI is now investigating her office for corruption

2 posts in this topic


In the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Maria last September, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz (D) made a name for herself when she began attacking President Donald Trump and his administration for its response to the natural disaster.

Now, Yulín Cruz has found herself in hot water as investigators reportedly probe her administration for corruption.

What are the details?

For weeks, Yulín Cruz made headlines for her comments about the Trump administration’s hurricane response. But now it appears it wasn’t the president’s administration slowly aid from reaching Puerto Rico and San Juan, but hers. The Epoch Times reported:

According to a local news report from El Vocero de Puerto Rico, the FBI is investigating several suppliers for alleged corruption in San Juan.

It says the investigation was launched after former procurement director Yadira Molina filed a lawsuit claiming she faced punishment for reporting illegal activities to the local comptroller. The investigation has since grown to include several contractors.

“On February 21, Molina sued the city council after reporting alleged acts of corruption in the shopping division in the town hall under the administration of Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto,” the report says.

The lawsuit claims Molina faced retaliation for reporting corruption and other illegal activities, including death threats and property damage. Eventually, Molina lost her job.


Now it's the mayor's turn?
