#1 "after the federal oversight board that runs the US territory's finances released a revised fiscal plan that raises expectations for disaster funding and economic growth."

Bond prices are tied to this? Disaster relief has now become big business? Yes, shutting the $$$ off sometime this afternoon would be very prudent.

#2 It's been big business at least since Katrina. Look at how the Clintons profited off Haiti.

#3 Dangerous game playing with withholding disaster releaf, everyone will think what would happen if a disaster hit my area and it will be painfully easy to manipulate. Better to start an FBI investigation into a person or two suspected of diverting the money.

#5 I'm with rjschwarz on this one. Optics are everything in politics, and Mr. Trump must now swim in that, er, sea.

Get some evidence or, at least, an unimpeachable sworn statement.

I'd rather Mr. Trump appoint a temporary governor with military arrest powers as backup until PR can get "legit," but, irrespective of intent, the cure would appear worse than the disease.

Too bad.
