“Deliberate efforts to undermine the nation’s Coronavirus response for political purposes.”

“…The Select Subcommittee’s investigation found that the Trump Administration granted multimillion-dollar contracts to unqualified distributors with limited food distribution experience that had submitted applications with serious red flags. For example, Yegg—awarded contracts worth $16.5 million—was a self-described “Export Management, Trading, and Trade Finance company” that listed its most recent annual sales as $250,000,90 while CRE8AD8—awarded contracts worth $39 million—specialized in wedding and event planning. USDA personnel admitted to Select Subcommittee staff that they did not contact the professional references bidders provided on their applications to confirm that the bidders were experienced, capable, and reputable. In the references section of Ben Holtz’ bid proposal, the contractor had simply written: “I don’t have any.”

The investigation further found that, after awarding massive contracts to unqualified contractors, the Trump Administration failed to adequately monitor those contracts for possible fraud. In one egregious example, the Trump Administration continued payments to Yegg despite evidence that the company provided misleading documentation to USDA and may have engaged in self-dealing. The Trump Administration sanctioned $3.8 million in payments to Yegg for purported deliveries after learning that some of the food in question had not yet left the producers —or had even been ordered. The Trump Administration also reimbursed Yegg for over $2.85 million for food boxes purportedly delivered to “Helping Feet,” a real estate-focused nonprofit operated by Yegg’s co-owner, who was also the wife of Yegg’s CEO. The Trump Administration paid Yegg another $584,400 for a delivery that Select Subcommittee staff confirmed was not received by the reported recipient and that Select Subcommittee staff were not able to trace.”
