George Soros' Baltimore State’s Attorney Indicted on 4 Felony Charges
Grand jury indicts Democrat Marilyn Mosby for falsely claiming pandemic relief
A federal grand jury has indicted Baltimore's top prosecutor on four felony charges, according to reports.
Baltimore's Democrat State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who was installed by far-left billionaire George Soros, is charged with perjury and making false mortgage applications in the purchase of two Florida vacation homes.
The four-count indictment alleges that Mosby, 41, lied about meeting qualifications for pandemic-related distributions from a city retirement plan in 2020.
Federal prosecutors also allege that the Democratic prosecutor lied on 2020 application forms for mortgages to purchase a home in Kissimmee and a condominium in Long Boat Key.
She has been indicted on two mortgage-related charges and two counts of perjury.
According to the indictment, Mosby submitted requests in 2020 for one-time withdrawals of $40,000 and $50,000, respectively, from Baltimore's deferred compensation plans.
It alleges that Mosby falsely certified that she experienced adverse financial hardships because of the coronavirus.
However, she actually received her nearly $250,000 salary in 2020.
The indictment also alleges that in 2020 and 2021, Mosby made false statements in applications for a $490,500 mortgage to purchase a home in Kissimmee, Florida, and for a $428,400 mortgage to purchase a condominium in Long Boat Key, Florida.
Mosby was among the first law enforcement officials supported by left-wing billionaire George Soros in his quest to remake the criminal justice system in the United States.
Investigators subpoenaed financial records from Mosby and her husband, City Council President Nick Mosby, in March.
Mosby is running for re-election in June for a third term as Baltimore’s state’s attorney.
She has denied any wrongdoing in previous statements about the investigation.
Mosby's attorney, A. Scott Bolden, blames "racism" for the charges.
"We will fight these charges vigorously, and I remain confident that once all the evidence is presented, that she will prevail against these bogus charges — charges that are rooted in personal, political and racial animus five months from her election,” read a statement from Bolden.
Mosby faced criticism when she announced in March 2021 that her office would no longer prosecute prostitution, drug possession, and other crimes she referred to as "low-level" offenses.
In response, Republican Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan called for an investigation of Mosby's policies and threatened to cut funding to her office.
If convicted, Mosby could face up to five years in prison for each of the two counts of perjury, and up to 30 years in prison for each charge of making a false statement.
