The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) both raided the home and City Hall office of Baltimore’s Democrat mayor Thursday morning.
“Dave Fitz, an FBI spokesman, confirmed agents from the Baltimore FBI office and the Washington IRS office were executing search warrants at those locations Thursday morning, as well as at least three other addresses associated with [Mayor Catherine] Pugh,” according to The Baltimore Sun.
Federal agents also raided the Maryland Center for Adult Training, a nonprofit which Pugh once led. Three of Pugh’s current staffers are listed as board members of the nonprofit.
“Fitz said they were executing warrants at Pugh’s former home in Ashburton, which she still owns, as well as the downtown office of her attorney and Brown’s home,” the report said.
Pugh is currently being investigated by the Maryland State Prosecutor’s Office in connection to sales of her “Healthy Holly” children’s books. On April 1, she announced that she would be taking a leave of absence for “health reasons” as the scandal grew.
“The Baltimore Sun reported last month that Pugh was paid $500,000 by the University of Maryland Medical System for 100,000 of the books to distribute to schoolchildren,” according to Thursday’s Baltimore Sun report. “The no-bid arrangement was made while she was on the hospital network’s unpaid board. Health provider Kaiser Permanente later acknowledged that it paid Pugh more than $100,000 to buy about 20,000 copies of her books during a period when the company was seeking a lucrative contract to provide health insurance to city employees.”
Acting Mayor Bernard “Jack” Young did not provide a comment. Nor did Pugh or her attorney.

Third Witness Claims Bill Clinton Visited Jeffrey Epstein’s Infamous “Pedophile Island”
Doug Band is a former Clinton White House aide.
A longtime Bill Clinton aide has revealed the 42nd President visited Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous “pedophile island” of Little St. James in the Virgin Islands, becoming the third witness to claim he had traveled to the island.
Doug Band started as an aide in the Clinton White House in 1995, going on to serve as a post-presidency advisor to Bill Clinton until 2012. He indicated to Vanity Fair in a story released Wednesday that Clinton had visited Little St. James in January 2003, noting he declined to travel with the former President on the trip. Band eventually ended his relationship with the Clintons, citing connections to Epstein as a cause. “I don’t want anything to do with that world,” stated the former political operative to Vanity Fair.
Band goes on to speak of a relationship between charged Epstein “madame” Ghislane Maxwell and the Clintons, revealing that Chelsea Clinton invited Maxwell to her wedding in New York in 2010. Epstein had been convicted of soliciting a minor for prostitution in 2008.

Two other witnesses formerly associated with Epstein himself claim to have seen Bill Clinton personally on the island. These incude Virginia Giuffre, a woman who was trafficked and abused by Epstein as a minor, and Steve Scully, who worked as Epstein’s handyman for the island.
“Bill Clinton has been on that island. I saw Bill Clinton sitting with Jeffrey on the living room porch,” stated Scully in a May Netflix documentary. Scully would later resign from Epstein’s employment, citing his knowledge of the sex crimes the pedophile billionaire was engaging in on the island. None of the witnesses that claim Clinton visited the island say they’ve seen him engaging in sexual activity.
Clinton has consistently denied that he ever visited the island, where Epstein engaged in prolific sexual abuse of minors and trafficked women. He reportedly provided travel documents to Vanity Fair that didn’t detail a trip to the island around the same timeframe. However, three credible witnesses- two with connections to Epstein and one with connections to Clinton himself- all claim that he did in fact travel to Little St. James.
