FBI investigating Whitefish deal: report

Source: The Hill

The FBI is reportedly investigating the $300 million contract awarded to Whitefish Energy to repair Puerto Rico's electrical grid in the wake of Hurricane Maria.


People familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that FBI agents from the San Juan field office are examining the deal and how Whitefish and the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) came to the agreement.

The report comes after Puerto Rico's state-run electric utility said Sunday it had accepted the governor's request to immediately cancel its contract with Whitefish, a small Montana-based energy firm headquartered in Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's hometown.

2. I've never seen a level of corruption this high in the W.H. That contract was SO CORRUPT...

the company had TWO employees at the time it got the contract, had been a big donor to Trump, and had never had a big contract like that, much less the EXPERIENCE to handle such a huge job.

In-your-face, what-are-you-gonna-do-about-it, I'm-the-President-and-can-do-what-I-want corruption.

5. So..who do you supposed had the most influence on the contract? I don't know..

The report comes after Puerto Rico's state-run electric utility said Sunday it had accepted the governor's request to immediately cancel its contract with Whitefish, a small Montana-based energy firm headquartered in Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's hometown.

Zinke says he had nothing to do with the contract..........could he be lying??? OH MY..
