    Is anyone else seeing a pattern here? The last bolded sentence in the quote box above. "We don't want punishment disguised as oversight." Really jumps out at me. This Administration used the same excuse of "alleged corruption" to hold up foreign aid funds appropriated by Congress and vetted and signed off on for release by the Pentagon and State Dept to Ukraine to pressure the Ukrainian President them into opening an investigation into one of the President's political rivals. So this Administrations modus operandi here appears to use allegations of corrupt acts, often unsupported, to justify their own corrupt acts whenever it suits their own political self-interests and purposes to do so.
    HUD might have had a point in that case. The Puerto Rican governor stepped down recently for basically ****ting on his own people on WhatsApp. The guy was trash. It doesn't mean anything in terms of Trump though.

    LOL! Every word of it has to do with everything you and I have been discussing. Look. Watch the video of Rep. David E. Price's pointed questioning of HUD official David Woll. Embedded within the original breaking news link I provided. And then tell me what excuse HUD had for making a decision to not comply with the law?

    Their excuse was the "unprecedented constitutional crisis over its governorship" and "the arrests of government officials by FBI agents investigating government contracts." But they also admitted that PR Housing Authority wasn't corrupt and it's head was an "honorable head of housing."

    So you're right...big deal. lol

    But seriously, I misunderstood you from the start. My apologies. Must be the medicinal marijuana.

    Rep. Katherine Clark, D-Mass., stressed that during Puerto Rico’s political unrest no indictments were issued against the island’s housing secretary, Fernando Gil-Enseñat, or the department he leads, known as Vivienda.

    Both Clark and Woll agreed that Gil-Enseñat is an “honorable head of housing.”
