The court documents highlighted that Xueyong Wu built relations with Latin American drug trafficking outfits to transfer and launder American-based drug revenues. Wu is scheduled to receive his sentence on September 29, 2020.

A good portion of Wu’s money was repatriated to Mexico through a complicated set of international financial transactions. A percentage of the money that Wu received in these transactions came from laundering activities.

The bulk of this money made through the flow of cocaine or payments for cocaine all took place within the Eastern District of Virginia.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael P. Ben’Ary and David A. Peters in addition to Trial Attorneys Steve Sola and Kerry Blackburn of the Criminal Division’s Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section are the prosecution involved in this case.

Such cases like these demonstrate how foreign actors exploit the U.S.’s weak immigration enforcement protocols.

Forget direct invasions, the U.S.’s inability to maintain its sovereignty is gradually turning into a failed state that is incapable of maintaining the most basic of public functions — security.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
