Investigating Trump isn’t enough for the Biden administration. Now they are putting their sights on Governor Ron DeSantis over sending two flights of illegals to Martha’s Vineyard.

The accusation is that DeSantis misused COVID-19 relief funds to fly these illegals to the liberal sanctuary city.

The Biden administration has opened an investigation into Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ flight of migrants from the border to Martha’s Vineyard.

The US Treasury Department is probing whether the Republican DeSantis — a potential 2024 contender for president — misused COVID-19 relief funds to ship dozens of migrants to the wealthy democratic enclave last month, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) revealed Wednesday.

The agency’s inspector general informed Markey and other Massachusetts members of Congress late last week that it planned to examine the Sunshine State’s migrant spending as part of an ongoing audit into how COVID funds have been used.

Specifically, the office said in an Oct. 7 letter that it will look at whether interest earned on State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF) grants was “utilized by Florida relation to immigration activities and if so, what conditions and limitations apply to such use.”

The inspector general’s office said it planned to get this work “underway as quickly as possible.”

“As part of its oversight responsibility for the SLFRF, Treasury Office of Inspector General has audit work planned on recipients’ compliance with eligible use guidance,” the letter said.

“In addition, as part of our oversight work of the Coronavirus Relief Fund established by the CARES Act, we have already sought information from Florida about appropriate use of that fund.”

It comes after Markey and five House members wrote to the inspector general’s office last month demanding an investigation into DeSantis’ spending after the Florida Republican sent nearly 50 Venezuelan migrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard.

This is garbage and they know it. It’s nothing but a political fishing expedition to try and get something on DeSantis that Charlie Crist can use to try and defeat him in November.

It was already reported this year that DeSantis spent money that was allocated to him in the Florida budget, which most Democrats voted for this year. Christina Pushaw highlighted this a month ago:

There’s no reason to think that anything nefarious happened here. Money was allocated by the Florida legislature for this very reason.

This investigation is nothing but corrupt politics and an abuse of power.
