Puerto Rico House speaker confirms Legislature is under investigation by feds

Speaker of the Puerto Rico House of Representatives Carlos “Johnny” Méndez Núñez confirmed on Thursday that there are several ongoing investigations in the House of Representatives, the day after Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents raided the residence of New Progressive Party (NPP) Rep. María Milagros Charbonier.

“Yes, we have always said that there are several investigations ongoing in the Legislative Assembly, in the state forum and the federal forum,” Méndez Núñez told journalists after concluding a caucus meeting of the NPP in the lower house. “The House will always cooperate with the investigations that are being carried out.”

“My call to all colleagues is that in the same way that our colleague [Charbonier] cooperated, all the members of the majority should cooperate with any type of investigation that is ongoing,” he added.

Although he did not elaborate, the House speaker stated that there have been “requests” for information and the information has been provided.
