    BOSTON (CBS) — Boston Police are looking for a man who stole $30,000 from two people who wanted to send the money home to family in China. Officers say a man and a woman were trying to send money to family members, but due to delays with international banking, tried to find a quicker way to send the money. Boston Police say they were told to join an online chat room, where they talked with a person who said he could help them. After talking to him for three days, the two people met with the man on Silber Way at around 12:45 p.m. on Friday. They agreed to give him $30,000 in U.S. money, which would then be deposited into Chinese money to send to the family members.

    A Connecticut man has been sentenced to more than nine years in prison for his role in a fentanyl trafficking ring and for violating the conditions of his supervised release after a previous federal conviction. Domingo Guzman, age 45, of Waterbury, was sentenced on Thursday, April 28, to a total of 114 months in prison followed by four years of supervised release, according to Leonard Boyle, United States attorney for the District of Connecticut. He pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl on Nov. 22, Boyle said. Guzman was on supervised release after serving time for a previous conviction at the time of his arrest, according to the report. The US Attorney's Office reported that in July of 2019, the Drug Enforcement Agency's Hartford Task Force began investigating a drug trafficking organization based in Mexico that was distributing fentanyl and heroin in Connecticut. Investigators found that members of the organization would receive kilograms of narcotics, mainly fentanyl, and distribute them to traffickers who sold them to...

    The White House Thursday said it stood by President Joe Biden's comments when he said in 2020 there had been nothing unethical in his son's foreign business dealings and that he never made money from China, following fresh reporting about how Hunter Biden profited from his famous father. This week it emerged that Chinese company CEFC China Energy paid $4.8 million to entities controlled by Hunter and his uncle James five years ago. Although the Washington Post did not allege that Biden was personally involved, it reported that Hunter Biden used his father's influence and contacts to secure the payments.  Biden defended his son when challenged by President Donald Trump about his foreign business dealings in the final presidential debate in 2020. And White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield said officials stood by his assessment that nothing was unethical and Hunter did not make money from China.  'We absolutely stand by the president's comment,' she said when asked by a reporter during the daily briefing. She also declined to answer other questions about Hunter's business dealings and whether officials were...
    Ever since Russia invaded Ukraine, politicians on both sides of the aisle in the United States have taken strong positions in support of Ukraine. Those actions have included pouring Russian vodka down the drain and divesting investments in Russian companies. In Florida, GOP Sen. Marco Rubio introduced legislation that would bar U.S. institutions from investing in Russian securities. “We need to minimize the resultant harm to Americans, including teachers and retirees, who have pensions and retirement accounts invested in Russian securities,” Rubio said at the time. “Many Americans do not even realize that fund managers have placed their money in these Russian companies.” But as Politico reports, sunshine state Gov. Ron DeSantis doesn't appear to have a sense of urgency about having the state ditch the investments its $200 billion pension plan has in Russian entities. Gary Fineout of Politico writes, "DeSantis is never shy about offering his views on foreign policy issues during his tenure, whether it be about Israel, China or Latin America," but has been uncharacteristically silent about Russia. The Florida governor did make some comments early...
    Vulnerable Democrat Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ), who will have a tough reelection battle, found a way around his “no-corporate PAC pledge.” Throughout the last 18 months, he has accepted campaign contributions from business and professional interest groups. Malinowski, like many other congressional members, created an arbitrary pledge not to take any corporate PAC money before being caught sidestepping his own words to build up a war chest. Before the last election, in September 2020, Malinowski said that he would not “take corporate PAC money, so they don’t own” him. In September 2020, he argued that accepting money from other members that take corporate cash is okay because the money is not coming directly from the corporation. He affirmed his belief that a “no-corporate PAC pledge” is so he is “able to say that I don’t owe them a thing, so I can make decisions solely based on what I think is right for my constituents.” However, while he’s taken at least $200,000 from other members and their leadership PACs, he’s also taken $43,000 from business interest groups, corporate lobbying giants, and individual corporate lobbyists — all since...

They were selling a variety of Ukrainian arts, crafts and food which went fast.

    (CNN)Nancy Pelosi was not happy. The House speaker had cut a hard-fought deal with Republicans to fund every aspect of the government, provide desperately needed aid to Ukraine, and bolster efforts to combat the pandemic.Then came Rep. Mark Pocan. In a tense meeting in her office, Pelosi was angry with the Wisconsin Democrat for threatening to oppose the massive spending bill over concerns that the Covid-19 relief money would be offset by clawing back dollars from his home state, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. "I was in the firing line," Pocan conceded to CNN when asked about the incident. "She wasn't happy with those of us who were upset," he added, referring to the numerous Democrats who were threatening to join in on the revolt.The blows did not stop there, even after Pelosi was forced to yank $16 billion in coronavirus relief from the spending package -- a major concession the speaker had to make after Republicans insisted the costs be offset and rank-and-file Democrats revolted over the spending cuts.Read More"He is a member of the Appropriations...
    Purdue Pharma will ask a federal judge Wednesday to approve a nationwide settlement that will transform the company into a public trust and contribute up to $6 billion from members of the Sackler family, with most of the money going toward efforts to abate the nation’s ongoing overdose and addiction crisis. Another part of the settlement allows people recovering from addiction and those who have lost loved ones to the crisis to directly address some of the Sacklers. That court session, scheduled for Thursday, is sure to be emotional, even in a virtual setting. The more conventional court proceeding on the plan itself is set for Wednesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in White Plains, N.Y. But in a topsy-turvy legal saga, even the routine matter has a twist. States that were among the first to support earlier versions of the Purdue settlement are objecting to one key provision. Joined by some local governments, unions and individuals, they contend it’s unfair that the states that held out and then negotiated a larger payment from the Sacklers will receive an outsize share...
    Frank W. spent five years working for the Twelve Tribes religious sect and never took home a paycheck. The 65-year-old Tennessean worked many 12-hour days in various jobs across the country for the religious cult. Never baptized in as a full member, he bent the rules at times, frequently leaving for work so early that he missed mandatory morning worship sessions. “You can get away with a lot when you are a good worker,” he said. But in 2015, the Twelve Tribes told him he was no longer welcome. “I said, ‘Well you need to settle up with me then,’” he said, using his middle name and last initial in this story to avoid being identified by current cult members. “And they said, ‘Oh we don’t do that.’” During its 50-year existence, the Twelve Tribes has distinguished itself among religious cults through its extensive business operations. The group has relied on food service, construction, soap-making, woodworking, farming, solar energy and even an Alaskan fishing operation to make money over the decades. Members live communally, sharing money and resources, and all...

    After a tumultuous exit from his role as the president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association in New York City, Ed Mullins has been charged for allegedly stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from his own union—and spending the cash on his lavish lifestyle. The 60-year-old firebrand union boss was arrested Wednesday and charged with one count of wire fraud in connection to the years-long scheme. In court documents unsealed Wednesday, Manhattan federal prosecutors alleged that Mullins used his credit card to pay for his personal expenses, and then submitted false and inflated expense reports to the SBA for reimbursement. The spendy items that Mullins falsely claimed were legitimate SBA expenses included meals at high-end restaurants, clothing, jewelry, home appliances, and even a relative’s college tuition. “As public servants, members of the SBA pay dues to a union that’s supposed to represent their best interests. As SBA president, Mullins allegedly went above and beyond to best serve his own interests,” FBI New York Assistant Director-in-Charge Michael J. Driscoll said in a Wednesday press release. The charges come just...
    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s Life, Liberty & Levin, Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer sounded off on President Joe Biden and his family members dealing with members “linked to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence.” Schweizer, the author of Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, said it was “very clear” that President Joe Biden and his son Hunter “have had intertwined finances for a very long time.” He called on the FBI and Congress to investigate the Biden family’s dealings with China. “[Joe Biden] directly benefitted because the other thing that we lay out in the book is it’s very, very clear that Hunter Biden and Joe Biden have had intertwined finances for a very long time,” Schweizer asserted. “What do I mean by intertwined finances? Well, there are communications where Hunter Biden complains to other family members that he’s having to send half his money to Pop, which is his father. But there’s also specific examples of him paying his father’s bills. Some of them are rudimentary. There’s a $320 a month phone bill for a back-channel...
    THE Navajo council has voted to send checks worth up to $2,000 to eligible adults and $600 for each child, resulting in $5,200 for a family of two adults and two children. The vote took place on December 29, with Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez passing the bill that will grant more than 345,000 hardship checks to tribe members. 2The program was created to help tribal members who were negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic The money comes from $557million in Navajo Nation Fiscal Recovery Funds (NNFRF). Nez has approved rounds of relief checks in the past using money from federal relief funds. “It has been over 8 months since President Joe Biden signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act and our Navajo people should not suffer another day without knowing how their government will assist them as they suffer from grief, mental health and financial hardship,” said Council Delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty. “A second allocation of hardship assistance payments of $2,000 per adult and $600 per child will allow our relatives to purchase essential winter supplies like gasoline, firewood,...
    Police have issued an alert about recent scams targeting residents for large sums of money in New York State. In the past month, state police in Columbia County have been investigating reports of a scam where callers pretend that the victim's grandchild or relative has been arrested and a bail bondsman needs to be paid, New York State Police reported. Police said in certain cases, as much as $30,000 has been requested. In a recent incident, victims left $12,000 outside of their home to be picked up. Victims have also sent the money through the mail. State Police said scammers have also recently tried to convince victims that a relative was involved in an accident and requested funds be transferred for medical payments. State Police shared the following tips to avoid being scammed: Take a pause. Scammers create a sense of urgency to prey on victims’ emotions and their love for family members. Verify any supposed emergency by calling friends and family before sending money. This is especially important if a potential victim has been warned not to do...
    WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (AP) — Erland Suppah Jr. doesn’t trust what comes out of his faucet. Each week, Suppah and his girlfriend haul a half-dozen large jugs of water from a distribution center run by the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs to their apartment for everything from drinking to cooking to brushing their teeth for their family of five. It’s the only way they feel safe after countless boil-water notices and weekslong shutoffs on a reservation struggling with bursting pipes, failing pressure valves and a geriatric water treatment plant. “About the only thing this water is good for is cleaning my floor and flushing down the toilet,” Suppah said of the tap water in the community 100 miles (160 kilometers) southeast of Portland. “That’s it.” In other, more remote tribal communities across the country, running water and indoor plumbing have never been a reality. Now, there’s a glimmer of hope in the form of a massive infrastructure bill signed last month that White House officials say represents the largest single infusion of money into Indian Country. It includes $3.5 billion...
    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced plans on Monday to put another $1 million a year toward tuition support for members of the Virginia National Guard. Between 400 and 500 members of the Guard apply for tuition assistance each year, Northam’s office said in a statement, and the increase would bring the pot of money to about $4 million, making the assistance accessible to more Guard members. More Virginia News “We are excited to be able to offer more members of the Virginia National Guard assistance to pursue higher education,” said Acting Secretary of Veterans and Defense Affairs Kathleen Jabs. Under the proposal, the structure of the program would also change from upfront assistance to after-the-fact reimbursement. “This is considered a best practice and is expected to increase the overall individual tuition assistance Guard members receive,” Northam’s office said in the statement, adding that it would save the Department of Military Affairs the time and expense of collecting money back from Guard members who don’t finish courses. Northam made the announcement at the departure ceremony for a Guard battalion...
