What's Happening in TX?

The FBI was on the scene Wednesday near the Laredo home of U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar for what authorities described as a court-authorized ongoing investigation.

FBI spokesperson Rosanne Hughes confirmed law enforcement’s presence in the area but did not clarify what authorities were investigating.

Hughes said in a statement that the FBI was present on two streets around Cuellar’s house in Laredo “conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity.”
...
Agents were seen taking cases and other items from the congressman’s home, according to MyRGVNews. FBI officials were also present at a downtown building owned by Cuellar that reportedly houses his campaign office as well as other private businesses, according to KGNS News.

One quibble: "Court-authorized law enforcement activity" is bullshit-speak for "executing a search warrant". The Supremes have not so trashed the Fourth Amendment that the FBI can sign its own search warrants.

It must be head-spinning to be a feeb these days....how do you know whether you're a good guy or a bad guy, whether your bosses are tools, whether your fellow feebs are "patriots", what investigations are rigged and/or show trial PR, whether the rot is inside the agency or out....and how the dice will roll for all of that tomorrow.

I have a sig with some applicable quotes:
"If honor be your clothing, the suit will last a lifetime"
- William Arnot
...or, more recently:
"Once you've done away with integrity, the rest is a piece of cake."
-J.R. Ewing
...and:
“It was miraculous. It was almost no trick at all, he saw, to turn vice into virtue and slander into truth,
impotence into abstinence, arrogance into humility, plunder into philanthropy, thievery into honor,
blasphemy into wisdom, brutality into patriotism, and sadism into justice.
Anybody could do it; it required no brains at all. It merely required no character.”

― Joseph Heller, Catch-22

From NBC:
Rep. Henry Cuellar’s home and campaign office in Texas were raided as part of a federal investigation into the country of Azerbaijan and a group of U.S. businessmen who have ties to the country, a senior law enforcement official said Thursday.

Azerbaijan rings a bell.
But the Mammadov family, in addition to its reputation for corruption, has a troubling connection that any proper risk assessment should have unearthed: for years, it has been financially entangled with an Iranian family tied to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, the ideologically driven military force.
