Trump Admin May Slap Criminal Charges On Planned Parenthood For Fraudulently Obtaining Coronavirus Funds

(Liberty Bell) – The Trump administration has responded swiftly and decisively in the wake of news reports that the nation’s leading abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, fraudulently received $80 million in funds intended to help small businesses deal with the economic fallout from the coronavirus.

Last week, the President Trump took preemptive action to prevent PP from receiving any of the money from the Paycheck Protection Plan (PPP) meant to help small businesses, which Planned Parenthood is not. Despite the rules and regulations built into the plan prohibiting affiliates of larger organizations with more than 500 employees from applying and the President’s efforts the abortion chain received $80 million in loans from the PPP. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PFFA) alone has more than 600 employees.

According to Fox News, 37 Planned Parenthood affiliates received the PPP funds with Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties in California receiving the largest loan of $7.5 million.

Now President Trump’s administration is demanding the money be returned.

Fox reports that the Small Business Association (SBA) is contacting each PP affiliate to explain that they are a part of a larger organization with more than 500 employees and are not eligible for PPP funds.

Fox News further explains:

A Planned Parenthood affiliate in Metropolitan Washington (PPMW), for example, will receive a letter stating that although self-certified that it was eligible for a $1,328,000 PPP loan in accordance with the SBA’s affiliation rules, it will need to return the money.

The SBA warned more “severe penalties” were possible, beyond mandatory repayment. In particular, incorrect or false eligibility certifications by PPP recipients could result in criminal or civil sanctions if the SBA determined borrowers made knowingly false statements, the SBA letter read.

The letter explained that PPFA affiliates clearly were covered by the PPP affiliate rules. “PPFA’s bylaws, a version of which is publicly available, reveal that becoming a PPFA affiliate requires a certification by the PPFA board,” the document continued. “Once certified, “[e]ach Affiliate shall be governed by written bylaws, which conform to PPFA policies.”

Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Josh Hawley, R-Mo., are calling for an investigation and say the money needs to be returned. They also indicated criminal prosecution may be warranted. Rick Scott, R-Fla., and James Lankford, R-Okla., also are demanding Planned Parenthood return the funds, Fox notes.

Rubio, who has served as chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, said Planned Parenthood’s violation of PPP rules was “clear.”

“There is no ambiguity in the legislation that passed or public record around its passage that organizations such as Planned Parenthood, whose parent organization has close to half a billion dollars in assets, is not eligible for the Paycheck Protection Program,” Rubio asserted.

“Those funds must be returned immediately,” he continued, adding, “Furthermore, the SBA should open an investigation into how these loans were made in clear violation of the applicable affiliation rules and if Planned Parenthood, the banks, or staff at the SBA knowingly violated the law, all appropriate legal options should be pursued.”

Hawley tweeted Tuesday night saying, “The money needs to be recovered and if anybody knowingly falsified applications, they need to be prosecuted.”

Rick Scott added, “Yet another example of the #PPP program being misused. Florida’s taxpayers should not be footing to bail out a huge organization like Planned Parenthood. This money should be returned immediately.”

  1. pp may be guilty of recieving ppp money but who sent it to them??? are all agentes of the IRS asleep at the wheel why is it always after the fact that these MORONS catch their mistake???

  2. PLANNED PARENTHOOD ( MURDERHOOD ) NOT ONLY COMMIT FRAUD BUT FOR DONATING MILLIONS OF TAX FUNDING DOLLARS TO THE PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST COMMUNIST FASCIST RACIST DEMOCRAT PARTY. THIS IS AS ILLEGAL AS IT GETS. WHY ARE THE PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST COMMUNIST FASCIST RACIST DEMOCRAT PARTY ALLOWED TO BRAKE EVERY FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LAWS WITHOUT ANY PENALTY OR ACCOUNTABILITY. THEY MURDER, STEAL, MISUSE TAX DOLLARS, COMMIT TREASON, GIVE BILLIONS TO OUR ENEMIES IN AID, CAUSE RACISM AND HATE, THEY EVEN SUPPORT THE COUNTRY THAT STARTED THE CORONAVIRUS, DO VIOLENCE, BELITTLE WOMEN AND GET AWAY WITH IT. TAKE MONEY FROM SOROS AND OTHER WEALTHY FASCIST COMMUNIST TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY. THEY CONTROL EDUCATION, SOCIAL MEDIA, NEWS MEDIA AND NINETY PERCENT OF THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY. THE MOST TRAGIC DISGUSTING THING IS AMERICANS VOTE FOR THEM AND WILL BRING ON THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION.

  3. Planned Parenthood needs to face Criminal charges for this deliberate miscarriage of justice. Not satisfied by torturing and stealing the lives of little boys and girls, PP steals money from small business owners and taxpayers during a global crisis.

    I hope Trump, Pence and every man and woman of conscience in Congress or any level of Government publicly denounces this vile BabyButcher’s theft of our money, once again. This is the PERFECT OPPORTUNITY to make that Civil Rights denying and Evil child killing organization pay dearly.

  4. The American people/taxpayers don’t owe those homicidal b*tchf*cks at Planned Parenthood ANYTHING, except maybe Congressional legislation OUTLAWING their EXISTENCE as a legitimate threat to the lives of the unborn! If they prove to be reticent about returning the money, pull a “Roger Stone” on all their locations NATIONWIDE and put them out of business once and for all!

  5. Very simple solution, request that they return the money NOW, if they refuse, any further funding to them should be subtracted from the funds they illegally received already. Who’s running this show, them or US!!!CASE CLOSED.

  6. As a taxpaying Florida resident (retired since 1990) I strongly oppose one thin dime of my “taxpaid” moneys going to ANY purpose other than managing the State. That includes employee pay, building leases, new construction, and especially ROAD Maintenance! Anything other than those and normal operating expenses (salaries, etc) should require a mandate for voter approval before one thin dime is allocated to be spent! They wrote the laws, time they abide by them!

  7. This clearly is a case for criminal enrichment by the most criminal organization in these United States.
    In the original decision by SCOTUS legalizing Abortion, the court said that “Whenever we learn when human life begins, this decision will need to be reviewed”.
    We now know, life begins at conception, the full DNA of a new human being is created.
    All this new human life needs is to be sheltered for 9 months until birth.
    Any abortion, irrespective of it’s development status, is the taking of a human life, punishable by existing law.

    Time for the new SCOTUS to review the now clearly outdated SCOTUS Decision.

    Planned Parenthood is guilty of mass murder that far exceeds the atrocities of the German Nazis in their “Konzentrationslager” (Concentration Camps).

    Time to terminate the “legality” of this mass murder of the most indefensible, the pre-born humans.

    • Well said. There’s no room in this world for science deniers. A human being’s life begins at conception.

  8. I’m all for a criminal investigation into how PP received federal loans improperly. But what about all the politicians who receive federal money improperly? What about federal agencies spying on and framing citizens? Aren’t these just as important if not more so?
