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.

I SUPPOSE THOSE OFFICIALS WHO ARE NOT CORRUPT CAN BE COUNTED WITH THE FINGERS OF ONE HAND . IT IS REVOLTING HIW SICK THIS WORLD HAS BECOME .

LOL LOL

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.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
