NEW: Forensic accounting expert Linda Miller testified to members of Congress this week that up to *HALF* of pandemic relief fraud was stolen by United States adversaries like China and Russia.

Holy s***!!

“Data on this is still being evaluated, but there are some estimates that half of the Pandemic unemployment assistance fraud went to adversarial nations,” she said, as reported by the Epoch Times.

“The nearly $5 trillion in government relief spending during the COVID-19 pandemic, much of which was disbursed as direct payments to citizens, created the perfect storm for fraud.”

“A combination of inadequate oversight and internal controls, large-scale organized fraud rings and antiquated data and information systems contributed to the massive, widespread fraud we saw during the pandemic.”

“Agencies were unprepared for the fraud they encountered largely due to a lack of attention on fraud risks.”
