THE COVID MONEY TRAIL
U.S. alleges
‘brazen’ theft

BYELIZABETHDWOSKIN
ANDJEREMYB.MERRILL

Three days after the 2020
election, Kyle Becker, a former Fox
News producer with a modest
15,000 Twitter followers, began
tweeting feverishly about election
fraud.
“BOMBSHELL,” he wrote on
Nov. 6, sharing purported
revelations that software glitches could
have tipped millions of votes from
President Donald Trump to
challenger Joe Biden.
Becker’s tweetstorm quickly
went viral, drawing more than
5,000 additional followers to his
account in just four hours. By the
time a mob of Trump supporters
stormed the U.S. Capitol two
months later, Becker had vaulted
into influencer territory,
supercharging his Twitter audience to
177,000.
Since Becker, 46, left Fox in fall
2020, he has built his brand as a
right-wing pundit. These days, he
curates his own online news site;

In a major escalation,

riga, latvia — Russiapushed
ahead Tuesday with plans to
annex occupied regions of Ukraine,
as Moscow’s puppet authorities
set dates to stage referendums on
joining Russia — moves that
could dramatically escalate the
war.
Officials in the self-declared
separatist “republics” of Luhansk
and Donetsk, and in the occupied
region of Kherson in southern
Ukraine, announced
“referendums” to be held from Friday to
Tuesday. Such votes, which are
illegal under Ukrainian and
international law, have been widely
derided by Western officials as a
sham and merely a precursor to
annexation.
After annexing the territories,
Moscow probably would declare
Ukrainian attacks on those areas
to be assaults on Russia itself,
analysts warned, a potential
trigger for a general military
mobilization or a dangerous escalation,
such as the use of a nuclear
weapon.
National security adviser Jake
Sullivan said Tuesday that the
United States would never
recognize Russian claims to annexed
territory, calling the planned
referendums a direct violation of

“We are much better

Maria,” Keith Turi, FEMA’s
assistant administrator for recovery,
said in an interview.
By early Tuesday, the rain in
Puerto Rico had eased as the
storm began lashing Turks and
Caicos and threatening Bermuda
with winds that had increased in
speed, making it a Category 3
hurricane. But even as Fiona
moves on, it leaves a daunting
path to recovery in Puerto Rico.
Downpours will also continue in
some parts of archipelago,
aggravating already dire flooding and
further complicating the
response. Officials said at least four
people have died there but have
warned that the toll could rise
once emergency workers are able
to assess the full scope of the
damage.

The Justice Department
charged 47 defendants Tuesday
for allegedly defrauding a federal
program that provided food for
needy children during the
pandemic, describing the scheme —
totaling nearly $250 million — as
the largest uncovered to date

Federal prosecutors said the
defendants — a network of
individuals and organizations tied to
Feeding Our Future, a nonprofit
operating in Minnesota — in some
cases obtained federal pandemic
funds in the names of children
who did not exist and then spent
that money on luxury cars, houses

When Fiona hit, island wasn’t
‘ready to face another tempest’

Hurricane Maria cleaved
Puerto Rican memory. There was
one kind of life before the
tempest. And an entirely different
life that emerged in its wake. Un
antes y un después.
Before the storm, the
Caribbean island archipelago was
teetering economically and unraveling
politically. In the five years since,
there have been ongoing
blackouts, protests, earthquakes and a
global pandemic. Puerto Ricans
have moved from powerlessness
to precarity.
As the anniversary
approached, The Washington Post
went back to visit those who
opened up their homes then, to
show us their lives now.
Hurricane Fiona — which hit Puerto

Rico on Sunday, destroying
homes, roads and bridges and
knocking out electricity — was
still days away. But even before
that, much of the post-Maria
recovery work had just begun.
In the mountains of Utuado,
teacher Maria Ortiz Viruet was
already experiencing blackouts
several days a week when Fiona
struck — each flicker of a
lightbulb filling her with anxiety.
Deeper into the lush central
forest, Syndia Maria Sotomayor
no longer needed a zip line to get
supplies across a river. A
temporary steel bridge was built after
Hurricane Maria to replace the
one that washed away; it still
straddles the waterway. But
Fiona destroyed a different bridge

RESPONSE TO 2017’S MARIA SHATTERS TRUST

In Puerto Rico,
FEMA’s promises
are ringing hollow

Five years after the federal
government bungled its response
to catastrophic Hurricane Maria
in Puerto Rico, the U.S. agency
tasked with reacting to major
disasters is under pressure again
after this week’s Hurricane Fiona
battered the territory’s
infrastructure, flooded communities
and left the island without
electricity.
As the slow-moving storm
headed north after a punishing
push across the island, top
officials at the Federal Emergency
Management Agency issued
repeated promises: This won’t be
like last time. FEMA, they have
insisted, is far better prepared for
Fiona than it was in 2017, when
Maria made landfall on Puerto
Rico, plunging the island into one
of the largest blackouts in U.S
