Ex-UN President Arrested, Charged For Accepting $1.3MM in Bribes

john ashe UN president exToday US authorities charged former United Nations General Assembly President John Ashe with accepting over a million dollars in bribes from Chinese real estate mogul Ng Lap Seng in exchange for lucrative government contracts.

More via Fox News:

In exchange for the money, federal prosecutors say Ashe used his position as Permanent Resident to the United Nations for Antigua and Barbuda and General Assembly head to introduce a U.N. document in support of a real estate project being developed by Chinese billionaire Ng Lap Seng.

Prosecutors say some of the bribe money was used to pay for Ashe’s family vacation and to construct a basketball court at his home in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. He opened two bank accounts to receive the funds and then underreported his income by more than $1.2 million, officials said.

“There is a lot more work to do,” Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, told reporters on Tuesday when asked about the probe. He said more charges were possible, adding, “We will be asking the question: Is bribery business as usual at the U.N.?”

Ashe was arrested today; Ng was already being held, and five others have also been arrested in connection with the scheme. At least one other diplomat, Francis Lorenzo of the Dominican Republic, is also being held, along with two naturalized citizens who were living in China and who officials suspect were helping push the deals through.

The UN has always been a criminal gang.  The UN must be eliminated.

I agree Steven!

Why am I not surprised?  We are supposed to hand over our country to these den of vipers with the New World Order? We will need divine intervention help to rid the world of all the corruption.  Satan is winning this round.

Remember Kofi Anan? The oil for arms deals. The U.N. Is a commie global cesspool.

and that is news?

Only 1.3 million... they didn't look into his conduct very deep.  I am surprised he was charged at all.  He must have pissed off some other UN official by not including him in on the graft.  Obama probably didn't get his cut.

Am I supposed to be surprised? NOT.

WE NEED TO GET THE HELL OUT OF THE UN...All this action being taken to change our money, telling us how we can live with what we make.  Bull Crap!!!  If is ALL A PART TO THE UN AGENDA 21 and not enough people are listening, reading about, or screaming at Congress to GET US OUT OF THE UN. 

I'm sorry but I have lost all hope.  The US pays almost 40% (or more) of the UN budget and this former President STOLE MONEY - AND THAT MONEY WAS US TAX PAYER MONEY.  Not enough people are caring enough to find out,and know what is happening in Washington, and WE ARE LOSING OUR BUTTS to the world, right now we are having UN Investigators going into our cities, and next will be the hob nail boots of the UN Military.  It has been confirmed that ISIS has crossed our Southern border and are now in the U.S.  THOUSANDS of Syrians are coming into our Country and I just read that the Government is using Flash Cards in Spanish to assist ILLEGAL ALIENS in passing the Citizenship test. 

We either stop what we are doing and the direction we are headed, or we're going right into hell.

He should be in the US Congress. They do that all the time and they're not in prison.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
