Following revelations that hundreds of billions of dollars spent by the government on the epidemic were doled out in false payments, Joe Biden made a big statement by hiring a pandemic prosecutor earlier this year. The majority of the media has chosen to ignore this major controversy.
Top House Republicans have discovered that the pandemic prosecutor’s probe into phoney payments has been halted due to a lack of funding in the budget.
Kevin Chambers, the deputy assistant deputy attorney general, was chosen for the position. Right away, he was assigned hundreds of cases to investigate.
Last year, up to 40% of the 1.9 trillion package was given out in fraud and fake jobless compensation payments.
Despite the fact that the Justice Department has filed hundreds of criminal charges, it has yet to recover the large sums of money. Out of hundreds of billions, it has recovered 90 million dollars in fines and penalties thus far.
According to the CBO, the government will continue to spend pandemic funds until the 2030s [under the same permissive standards]. Due to the urgency, Democrats said they wanted to err on the side of caution. That didn’t turn out so great.
Biden had a trillion dollars to spend on COVID when he took office. He passed another $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan before he even spent it. He had 2.9 trillion to spend at the time, and up to 40% of it was spent falsely on some or all of it. What happened to the money? It has resulted in massive inflation.
ARE THEY GOING TO RECEIVE BOGUS PAYMENTS?
It appears that our Attorney General is only saying that the cash have been recovered. It would be wonderful to get answers if this is not the case. Top Republicans are attempting to figure out what’s going on.
On Tuesday, House Republicans sent Attorney General Merrick Garland a letter demanding answers.
Republican House Budget Committee Chairman Jason Smith of Missouri, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio, House Small Business Committee Republican Leader Blaine Luetkemeyer of Missouri, and House Ways and Means Committee Republican Leader Kevin Brady of Texas all signed the letter.
Republicans frequently don’t get a response from Garland. So don’t expect a response from him or the Democrats anytime soon. You’re going to die.
FOREIGN ENEMIES RECEIVED IT.
It’s estimated that 40% of it ended up in the hands of foreign adversaries.
According to The Washington Times, tens of billions of cash were routed to fraudsters operating with China and Russia.
According to Haywood Talcove, CEO of LexisNexis Risk Solutions’ government division, fraudsters received 40% of the $700 billion spent on jobless benefits. The vast majority of it, $175 billion, went to foreign operations.
The preceding is a summary of an article that originally appeared on Independent Sentinel.
“It makes me mad that there hasn’t been enough oversight, that the tools that are needed when you’re distributing this type of money aren’t in place,” Mr. Talcove told The Washington Times. “It allows our adversaries, the Russians, the Chinese, the Nigerians, the Romanians, to use that money to hurt our country.”
