AND MIKE I’VE I WAS IN CHARLESTON ONCE I DO HAVE TO SAY I DO REMEMBER. THAT THERE IS A HUGE SEA WALL THAT WAS BUILT. I ACTUALLY WENT DOWN WENT FOR A WALK ON THAT SEA WALL AND I REMEMBER THINKING THEY MIGHT BE PRETTY WELL PROTECTED. BECAUSE RIGHT WHEN YOU GET INTO THE HISTORIC PART OF OLD DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON. YOU KNOW THAT’S WHERE YOU’VE GOT SOME OF THE MOST HISTORIC HOMES THE COBBLESTONE STREETS THE CALL OF THE BOSTON OF THE SOUTH SCHOOL OKAY SO BUT- IT LOOKS LIKE YOU KNOW THEY’RE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET IN MYRTLE BEACH AND THEN BOY HOW BAD.

NEWS CONFERENCES LINED UP FROM CHARLESTON TO WILMINGTON WILL BRING THAT TO YOU A LITTLE BIT. LATER HERE BUT I WANT TO SHOW YOU. A VIEW FROM HIGH ABOVE TAKE A LOOK AT DORIAN. UP FROM THE I SS RIGHT NOW NOW LOOK AT THAT IS SO STRANGE IT DOES DEPEND DEPENDS ON WHERE THE SPACE STATION IS AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT. BUT IT LOOKS LIKE BASICALLY THE WAY THAT PICTURES COMING INTO US LIKE IT’S ON THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE YEAR. BUT IT’S JUST THE PERSPECTIVE OF COURSE. OF THE I. S. S. AND THAT IS WHAT ONE MONSTER SURE THING HURRICANE OUT THERE WHICH BY THE WAY. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR ANY T. ANY. LITTLE BIT OF NEWS.

BLEW RIGHT OVER THE TOP AND WE TALKED ABOUT IT NOW YOU’VE GOT THOSE AERIAL PICTURES FROM AN AIRPLANE. SOMEBODY FLEW A DRONE OVER SOME OTHER NEIGHBORHOODS IN A REALLY DOESN’T MATTER WHICH- WHICH VIEW YOU TAKE FROM HIGH ABOVE ARE LITERALLY JUST SCOOTING RIGHT ACROSS THE ROOFTOPS FROM A DRONE.

HIGHEST IN ORIENT GEORGETOWN AND TRIALS AND COUNTIES AND THIS AMOUNT OF RAINFALL COULD RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT FLASH FLOODING.

HOWEVER THE THREE AT THE THREAT OF TORNADOES DOES APPEAR TO BE ENDING AS THOSE BANDS WITH NORTH INTO NORTH CAROLINA. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. YEAH BRIEFLY OF THE STORM THE CALLS OF THE LACK OF. COINCIDENTAL PRESENCE OF THE HIGH TIDES AND THE WINDS AND THE RAIN IN THE CHARLESTON AREA. THE WAR DID NOT GET AS DEEP AS ANTICIPATED ALTHOUGH IS STILL PLENTY OF IT. AND OF COURSE I STILL UNDER THE EVACUATION ORDER. BUT NOW WE’RE TURNING TOWARDS GEORGETOWN AND RE COUNTY WHERE IT IT SEEMS IT ALTHOUGH THE LOWER PART OF THE STATE. OF GOT OFF A LITTLE LARGER THAN EXPECTED. IT LOOKS LIKE READ GEORGE TOWN HAVE A. IT’S NOT A LITTLE HARDER THAN WAS ANTICIPATED ORIGINALLY SO FAR WE ARE PREPARED. AS OF THREE O’CLOCK TODAY I’M ANNOUNCING NOW THAT AS OF THREE O’CLOCK TODAY THE MANDATORY EVACUATION ORDER. FOR THREE COUNTIES WILL BE LISTED THOSE IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE STATE. THOSE COUNTIES IN THEIR ONLY THOSE THREE COUNTIES OUT OF THE EIGHT WHERE IT IS IT HAS BEEN IN EFFECT FOR JASPER BEAUTIFUL COLLAGEN COUNTIES ONLY.

WAS GOING ON AT THE LOCAL LEVEL WE’VE GOT TWENTY FIVE COUNTIES THEY’RE STILL AT SOME LEVEL OF OPERATION HERE IN SOUTH CAROLINA SIX OF THEM ARE NOT COMING TO WHICH IS OUR SECOND HIGHS THREE. NINETY ONE WHICH IS THE HIGHEST RATINGS AND THAT’S OPERATING CONDITION THEIR PRIMARY FOCUS IS SIMILAR TO OURS SHELTERING OPERATIONS INITIAL RESPONSE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT AND RE ENTRY HAPPY TO REPORT THAT WE HAVE EXCELLENT COMMUNICATIONS ALL SYSTEMS ARE COUNTERS MANAGERS PARTNERS AT A LOCAL LEVEL IN TERMS OF RESIDENTIAL AND BUSINESS DAMAGES RIGHT NOW THERE’S VERY FEW STRUCTURAL RESIDENTIAL OR BUSINESS DAMAGES BEEN REPORTING TO US THERE ARE A FEW BUT THIS IS STILL VERY EARLY IN THE PROCESS THE STORM STILL ON GOING. ON RESPECT MANY OF THE COUNTIES TO BE ABLE. TO FEEL THE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT TEAMS SOMETIME TOMORROW. BUT THAT BEING SAID ALL COASTAL COUNTIES ARE REPORTING A POWER OUTAGES BLOCKED ROADS AND LOCALIZED FLOODING. LEAST THREE OF IT YOU KNOW SEES DORCHESTER GEORGE DOWN AND OR RE WENT TO GENERATOR POWER AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER. I BELIEVE DORCHESTER’S UP RIGHT NOW BUT THAT KIND OF MOVING TARGET THERE. AND THEN LOOK AND THERE WAS A NUMBER OF LIFT STATIONS IN DORCHESTER COUNTY. THEY WERE ALSO A NON OPERATIONAL FOR A BRIEF PERIOD OF TIME THE MOST OF THEM HAVE BEEN RESTORED. THERE HAVE BEEN SPORADIC. CELL PHONE OUTAGES ALONG THE- COAST. CAN THE GOVERNMENT CLOSURES THERE’S RIGHT NOW TWENTY THREE OF THEM. CAN IS THAT CLOSURES FOR THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT AND IT’S MOSTLY FROM MIDLAND SOUTH.

NOW THAT WE KNOW OF YET SO MUCH THAT YOU HAVE TO WAIT AS A LOT OF WAYS FOR THE STORM TO PASS BEFORE THEY CAN COME IN TO ASSIST NINE AT THIS TIME IN ANY KIND OF PARTICULAR AREAS WHERE YOU THINKING. THAT THAT WILL BE NEEDED OR WERE YOU KIND OF FOCUSING THOSE ARE. WELL SO WE’VE GOT SWITCHED WATER TEENS IN NORTH CHARLESTON IN THE CITY OF CHARLESTON. SOME IN ORDER YOU CAN ONLY. WE ALSO HAVE THEM STATION BACK IN IN MANNING AND FORT JACKSON AND COLUMBIA SO THAT THEY CAN BE DEPLOYED WHEREVER. WE MIGHT NEED IT AS THE STORM CONTINUES TO MOVE NORTH. I KNOW IT’S EARLY BUT I GOTTA ASK SO WHEN. WHEN MIGHT OF PEOPLEBE ABLE TO RETURN ANY ESTIMATION BIRD THE OTHER FIVE COUNTIES. YOU ARE CORRECT IS EARLY. WHICH CONCERNS WE KNOW YOU’LL KNOW. AS YOU CAN GATHER THERE’S A LOT OF THOUGHT IN A LOT OF DATA THAT NEEDS TO BE ANALYZED A LOT OFCONVERSATIONS NEED TO BE ABLE TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS BUT WE DID MAY COME OF THIS MORNING AFTER EXTENSIVE COMMUNICATIONS AND LOUSY. WITH SO THAT THIS WEEKEND AS I MENTIONED. ANY IDEA HOW MANY ROAD CLOSURES WE HAVE. SO WE STILL HAVE A ROADS COVERED WITH WATER IN THE GEORGETOWN AREA OF MYRTLE BEACH NORTH MYRTLE BEACH AREA. SO OUR DATA. THAT WE’RE REPORTING IS NOT FULLY UP TO DATE JUST BECAUSE IT IS THIS WE’RE LITERALLY STILL IT IN THE STORM WITHIN THOSE REGIONS. SO YOU KNOW THOSE AREAS ARE STILL HONORED EVACUATION ORDER AND- AS AS EVERYBODY ELSE’S MENTION WE DEFINITELY ARE NOT ENCOURAGING TRAVEL IN THOSE AREAS AND OBVIOUSLY FOLLOW ANY KIND OF. ALL DIRECTIONAL BLOG LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT IF YOU DO HAPPEN TO VENTURE OUT. MORE QUESTIONS YEAH ANY IDEA HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE WITHOUT POWER AT THIS POINT. YES. YES AS THIS AT ONE O’CLOCK TODAY WE HAD TWO HUNDRED FIFTY TWO THOUSAND BUT JUST BEFORE THIS BRIEFING BEGAN IT WAS REPORTED TO ME THAT WE WERE DOWN TO TWO HUNDRED FORTY SEVEN THOUSAND. THAT NUMBER WILL FLUCTUATE. THOSE ARE ON METERS SO YOU CAN PRESUME BELIEVED TO TALK TO PEOPLE. TWO PEOPLE PER HAM GENERALLY SPEAKING SO BUT THOSE WORD METERS. THE GOVERNOR I KNOW YOU ALSO TALKED ABOUT KIND OF THE FOCUS NOW WORRY IN GEORGETOWN COUNTY WE TALK ABOUT THROUGHOUT THE WEEK BUT NOW THAT IT’S ACTUALLY HERE WHAT’S YOUR MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE DECIDED TO HUNKER DOWN. IN THOSE TOWNS. WELL IT’S THE SAME AS IT HAS BEEN ALL ALONG AND- I’M AND WE STILL CONCENTRATE DON’T GIVE IN JASPER I HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO THAT IT’S JUST A DIFFERENT KIND OF WAR. BUT WE WOULD URGE YOUR BODY TO STAY INSIDE AS YOU CAN YOU CAN SEE. FROM IMAGES IT WE WERE SEASON FROM CAMERAS ALL OVER THE PLACE OF THE WINDS BLOWING THE WATER’S. GETTING DEEPER IN GEORGIA BE INTERESTED TO SEE WHAT IT IS IN IN GEORGETOWN A AN HOUR OR SO BUT ALL NOT THE COAST IS WHERE WE STILL HAVE HOW WINS IN A LOT OF WAR. SO IF YOU HAVE NOT LEFT IN THOSE IF YOU IF YOU LEFT FROM ALL THERE IS OR IF YOU THE IF YOU YOU STILL THERE BE CAREFUL. BUT ALL OF IT THOSE ARE BECOMING BACK IN STARTED THREE O’CLOCK AT THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES ALLOW ME TO COME BACK AND- BE CAREFUL THOSE WHO ARE AS YOU SAY HUNKER DOWN AND RE GEORGETOWN ANYWHERE ELSE. BE CAREFUL AND IN PARTICULAR THERE DON’T GO OUTSIDE THINGS OF FLYING AROUND IN THERE THE WATER’S GETTING DEEPER TOO DANGEROUS AND- SO FAR WE’VE AS FAR AS WE KNOW WE’VE HAD NO STORM RELATED DEATHS. AND WE WANT TO KEEP IT THAT WAY IF WE REBUILD THE BUILDING IF YOU CAN STARLIGHT FALL. OVER AGAIN SO WE WANT PEOPLE TO BE CAREFUL THAT’S WHY WE HERE. WHAT’S THE RECOVERED RESPONSE GOING TO LOOK LIKE IT’S GOING TO HAVE THE FOLKS THAT YOU WE’VE HAD AN EMERGENCY RESPONDERS HERE. IN THE BUILDINGS ARE THEY GONNA BE DIVERTED TO HELP CLEAR THAT UP ESPECIALLY GIVEN THAT IT SEEMS THAT WE’RE KIND OF. OUT OF THE OUT FROM UNDER THE GUN. RIGHT IT WILL WILL WILL WORK THE RECOVERY PROCESS AS WE GO THROUGH THE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT PROCESS AND SEE WHERE WE NEED TO GO IN TERMS OF. EITHER INFRASTRUCTURE OR RESIDENTIAL. YOU KNOW REPAIRS AND THAT SORT OF THING SO WE’LL GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OVER. WORK VERY CLOSELY WITH THE- FEMALE ON THAT. IN TERMS OF A POSSIBLE FEDERAL REIMBURSEMENTS. SO THAT CAN I ASK YOU A QUESTION ALL IS ALSO MORE JUST. WONDERING IF IT’S MORE ALONG THE LINES ARE YOU SEEING ANY OF THE EMERGENCY PERSONNEL LIKE SHE WAS SAYING WE HAVE FOLKS ARE MOBILE AS YOUR LIKE FOR JACKSON. SING THEM KIND OF A DOWN ALONG THE WAY TO SORT OF HELP WITH THAT RESPONSE. OKAY ABSOLUTELY I’M SURE THAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. WE RECEIVE SOME ASSETS FROM THE SOUTH OURSELVES HERE. AND I’M SURE THAT’LL HAPPEN. AS A AS A- AS THE PROCESS MOVES FOR NINE OFF. IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING AT THE. DOWN THERE COMING UP HERE BUT THAT IS PRETTY MUCH MAKES SENSE AND THEN MOVE ON THE MOST YEAH PROCESS IN MOTION. IN THE COUNTY WHERE THE EVACUATIONS LISTED ARE THOSE GOVERNMENTS EXPECTED TO REOPEN YES. HELP ME UP TO THEM. THERE FROM THEM. YEAH JUST RIGHT NOW WE’VE GOT IS JUST SOME HOUSES DAMAGED I THINK SOME ROOF DAMAGE BUT- THE PROBLEM UP THERE RIGHT NOW OF THE WE STILL GOT TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS UP THERE AND GET NOW LOOKING AT THOSE THINGS SO IT’S- WE DON’T HAVE COMPLETE INFORMATION RIGHT NOW. THREE SAYING WHERE THOSE. TRAINS ARE CONCERNED BELIEVE THERE IS. NORTH MYRTLE BEACH IN NORTH MYRTLE BEACH AND LITTLE RIVER. WITH REGARD TO THE POWER OUTAGES ANY KIND OF SENSOR IDEA AS TO HOW LONG RESTORATION EFFORTS CONTAGION MAYBE WHAT’S KINDA HAMPER HAMPERING THAT ALWAYS DONE BY ONE’S GOING. IT’S T. STANDARD TO BE ABLE TO SAY THE UTILITIES ARE GONNA HAVE TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO OUT AND DO AN ASSESSMENT. OF THE DAMAGE AND YOU KNOW IT IT DEPENDS ON HOW QUICKLY THE STORM IS OUT.WHETHER OR NOT FOR EXAMPLE WHETHER OR NOT DOMINION COULD GO OUT THIS AFTERNOON IN CHARLESTON AND START ASSESSING DAMAGE. SO UNFORTUNATELY IT’S TOO SOON TO STARSIGN THAT. AND I THINK YOU HAD A COMPOUND QUESTION DID I ANSWER IT FULLY. I WAS WONDERING ABOUT WHAT. MIGHT BE HAMPERING THOSE EFFORTS OBVIOUS TO ME THAT THE STRONG WINDS OUT. THE UTILITY TRUCKS WILL ONLY ROLE IF THY’RE ABOVE THIRTY FIVE MILES I MEAN BELOW THIRTY FIVE MILES PER HOUR WINDS SO WHAT THEY’LL DO IS IF THERE’S A BAND A WINDOW THAT WORLD ROLE TRUCKS OUT NOW. WHERE THERE’S OPENINGS AND THEY ARE RESTORING SERVICE WHICH IS WHY YOU SAW THE NUMBERS FLUCTUATE THEY ARE OUT THERE RESTORING SERVICE WHERE IT WHERE IN AND WHERE THEY CAN AND DO SO SAFELY. BUT WHEN THE WIND GOES ABOUT THIRTY FIVE MILES. PER HOUR THEY THEY WILL NOT ROLL. WHAT ARE WE EXPECTING TO SEE THE REINS OF THE LAND SO SHADED WITH THIS AND- THEN AFTER THAT POINT ONCE IT CLEARS OUT WHAT IS THE BIGGEST CONCERN FOR OUR RESIDENTS. SURE ALREADY SEEING IMPROVING CONDITIONS IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE STATE. THE TROUBLE STORM FORCE WINDS ARE LIFTING NORTH OF THERE NOW WE STILL DO HAVE SOME TROPICAL STORM FORCE WIND GUSTS IN THE TRIALS METROPOLITAN AREA. I AM AN OBVIOUSLY UP FOR THE NORTH ALONG THE COAST. WE EXPECT GRADUAL IMPROVEMENT THROUGH THE DAY SO PROBABLY BY THIS EVENING WE’LL SEE THE TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS LIFTING OUT OF THE TRIALS METROPOLITAN AREA. AND THEN SOMETIME OVERNIGHT TONIGHT WE BELIEVE OF TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS. WILL BE OUT. OF THE STATE. I WILL BE SEEING IMPROVING CONDITIONS FOR TOMORROW RIGHT HERE RESPECTING OE HUNDRED AND SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTY DEGREES HERE FOR ANOTHER HI N. JUST SEEMS LIKE WEEPING AND SO CLOSE TO THOSE ONE TENDS SO MUCH THIS SUMMER HI EVERYONE MIKE PAGE YOU’RE WELCOME BACK TO NEWS NOW AS WE CONTINUE ALWAYS BRING YOU THE STOP STORES AND OUTLINES. FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY THANKS SOpMUE TODAY ALL RIGHT WE ARE GOING TO GO OUT TO A NEWS CONFERENCE OUT OF OHIO WORRY METEOROLOGIST HAS BEEN ARRESTED. FOR AND HE’S BEEN CHARGED WITH CHILD **** LET’S LISTEN INTO THIS CELL PHONES ANYTHING LIKE THAT WHICH YOU CAN DOWNLOAD. IMAGES OR VIDEOS AND THE CENTER RECEIVE THOSE KINDS OF THINGS. REALLY SINCE THE STANDARD NORMAL STUFF THAT WE TAKE ANY SURE FORMERLY USED TO A CHILD PORN CASE BUT YOU’RE ABLE TO DETERMINE THAT HE HAD SENT OR RECEIVED OR WHATEVER WAS ACTIVITY WITHOUT ACTUALLY HAVING CLOSING YOUR VISIT YEAH WE ONCE THE SPACE IS REALLY GET RISE TO THE LEVEL OF SEARCH FOR THE REST FOR. YOU KNOW WE YOU KNOW WE SPENT THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME AND RESOURCES LOOKING INTO THESE CASES. THAT’S FOR THE MOST PART WE STOP MOTION PATTERN OF BEHAVIOR AND SO IT’S A MATTER OF NOT ONLY DID A FINE WHERE THESE ITEMS RELEASED IMAGES FROM THESE VIDEOS FOR DOWNLOAD TO ESTABLISH JURISDICTION SO FORTH. OF THE BY WHO AS WELL AND SO YOU KNOW ONCE WE WERE PRETTY CONFIDENT WE KNOW WHO THAT. IS THAT PERSON BECOMES IN CHARGE INVESTIGATION. IN TERMS OF WHAT HE SAID I CAN’T. PROBABLY CALL PROBABLE CAUSE TO BELIEVE THAT THERE WAS THINGS TAKING PLACE AS A PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT THE STUDIOS WAR WITH THAT JUST AS A PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE THE U. S. ALSO I SEE. THERE YEAH I WANT TO GET INTO A LOT OF DETAIL IN THE WAY THAT WE DO THIS CASES BUT AS YOU CAN IMAGINE I. P. ADDRESSES AND SO FORTH LIKE THAT ARE INVOLVED IN THIS SO. YES ONE OF THE WAYS WE ESTABLISH WHERE THESE IMAGES ARE DOWN QUITE FRANKLY FROM THE INFORMATION YOU GUYS HAVE HOW LONG HAS THIS BEEN GOING ON WITH ALL THE MONTHS YEARS WEEKS. THAT I CAN’T SAY AS YOUR MISSION YOU KNOW WE RECEIVED IT TOOK A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND SO THEY PUT. A LOT OF WORK IN THIS IN THE LAST COUPLE WEEKS AND. I MEAN WE’VE ARRESTED CLERGYMAN WE’VE ARRESTED COPS. YOU KNOW FOLKS IN THE MEDIA WE’VE ARRESTED EVERYBODY AND SO. I THINK IT’S A REMINDER FOR THE COMMUNITY. OF HOW DANGEROUS THE INTERNET IS AND HOW WE NEED TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN. WHEN YOU RECEIVE THE TAKE TWO WEEKS AGO OF THE COURT DOCUMENTS INDICATE THAT AT LEAST THE IMAGE OF YOUR CHARGE WITH RIGHT NOW SPECIFICALLY WAS DOWNLOADED SOMETIME IN EARLY AUGUST. I MEAN IS ARE THERE MORE CHARGES COMING. BUT WHEN THE GRAND JURY HEARS IS THAT YOU WERE INTERESTING THERE WILL BE ADDITIONAL POTENTIALLY AND SO THAT’S THE PART WILL WORK WITH.

GOOD MORNING MY NAME IS CRAIG THERE ON THE DEPUTY SPECIAL AGENT IN CHARGE OF THE SAN FRANCISCO DIVISION. OF THE FBI IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA I LIKE TO THANK YOU. FOR BEING HERE TODAY COVERING THIS VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT I LIKE TECHNO TO THANK OUR AGENCY ANALYST AND LAW ENFORCEMENT PARTNERS DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES CALIFORNIA DOJ AND THE US ATTORNEY’SOFFICE ALL OF WHOM WORKED TIRELESSLY. ON THIS INVESTIGATION WHICH IS EXACTLY COMPLEX AND ONGOING. TODAY’S ANNOUNCEMENT UNDERSCORES THE STEADFAST COMMITMENT OF THE DEPARTMENT JUSTICE IF WE ON OUR PARTNERS TO RIGOROUSLY INVESTIGATE FRAUD. IN OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM. THIS MATTER IS A CULMINATION OF A MULTI YEAR UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION. THESE DOCTORS AND HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS SOUL PATIENTS LIKE COMMODITY BY PLACING THEIR OWN FINANCIAL GAINS OVER THE WELL BEING OF THEIR PATIENTS. BETRAYED THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF THEIR PROFESSION. TAKING KICKBACKS AND BRIBES IS NOT ONLY ILLEGAL. BUT IS ALSO AGAINST THE PRINCIPLES OF THE OATH OF INTEGRITY AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. DOCTORS TAKE A HIPPOCRATIC OATH MORAL AND ETHICAL CODE TO TREAT THE ILL TO THE BEST OF ONE’S ABILITY TO PRESERVE A PATIENT’S PRIVACY. AND DO NO HARM. HEALTH CARE PATIENTS ARE NOT FOR SALE. HOWEVER. ICADE MEDIC COW IN MEDICARE FRAUD IS A PERVASIVE PROBLEM IN OUR COMMUNITY AND IT CONTINUES TO INCREASE. BY INCENTIVIZING PAYMENTS ARE KICKBACKS OF ANY FORM. FOR UNNECESSARY CARE THESE COSTS ARE BUILT TO THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS. INSURANCE PROVIDERS IN SOME INSTANCES PATIENTS HAVE A BILL FOR SERVICES WHICH THEY HAVE NOT YET RECEIVED. INVESTIGATING HEALTHCARE FRAUD IS A TOP PRIORITY FOR THE FBI. AND WE WILL CONTINUE OUR WORK TO FERRET OUT FRAUD EXPLOITATION IN THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM. HEALTHCARE FRAUD AND DANGEROUS PATIENTS WELFARE. RESULTS IN OVERBILLING. CREATES UNNECESSARY COSTS FOR THE AMERICAN PUBLIC. DRIVES A MEDICAL COSTS AND RATES AND UNDERMINES HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS IN THE INTEGRITY OF THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM. IF YOU SEE ANYTHING RELATED TO HEALTH CARE FRAUD PLEASE CONTACT OUR FBI PUBLIC ACCESS TO BLIND. AT. 855-324-7257 THAT’S. EIGHT FIVE FIVE THREE TWO FOUR SEVEN TWO FIVE SEVEN. OR YOU CAN SUBMIT YOUR TIPS THROUGH OUR FBI A DOT GOV WEBSITE THANK YOU. OKAY I HAVE A FRIEND. WHETHER READ IT. THEY DID THE WHOLE HEALTHCARE OR MAYBE. AS ALLEGED IN THE COMPLAINT THIS IS A FINANCIAL FRAUD. INVOLVING MEDICARE AND VOTE INVOLVING THE HOME HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IT IS NOT FRAMED IN COMPLAINTS AND IS NOT ALLEGED IN THE COMPLAINT AS A QUALITY OF CARE. FOR US. AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT YOU’LL SEE MISTY VERY IN THE COMPLAINTS IS THAT THERE WAS ACTUALLY ATTENTION PAID. TO THE QUALITY OF CARE IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR THE PERPETUATION OF THE SCHEME THEY’RE NOT BE. QUALITY OF CARE COMPLAINTS DIRECTED AGAINST THE DEFENDING CORPORATIONS BECAUSE THEY WANT TO KEEP THE MONEY FLOWING. EVENTS AROUND TO GIVE THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE. SO I GOT A LITTLE BIT CONFUSING CITY EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS. THE MEDICAL. WITH THE OTHER MONEY THERE. THEY WOULD I GUESS BAND REGULAR PATIENT CARE AND STILL. WHETHER THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY SITTING NEEDED ATTENTION ARE THESE CO CONSPIRATOR HUBER. OKAY MAKING IT. SURE SO PLEASE BE FIRST ABOUT THE NATURE OF THE PATIENT VICTIMS AND THEN LET ME LET ME TALK FOR A MINUTE ABOUT THE MANNER IN WHICH THE FRAUD WAS PERPETUATED FROM A FINANCIAL STANDPOINT. SO THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF CARE THAT ARE IMPLICATED BROADLY SPEAKING IN THIS GAME ONE PROVIDED GENERALLY BY AMITY IS HOME HEALTHCARE THAT MIGHT BE A WHOLE ARRAY OF SERVICES THAT ARE PROVIDED TO A PATIENT THAT THEY NEED. OFTEN TIMES BUT NOT NECESSARILY AT THE END OF LIFE SO THIS CAN BE THIS CAN BE. A CURATIVE TREATMENT OR OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY FOR A WHOLE HOST OF OTHER THINGS THAT THE PATIENT NEEDS IN THE HOME. THE OTHER TYPE OF CARE THAT IS PROVIDED IN THIS IS GENERALLY PROVIDED BY ADVENT IS HOSPICE CARE. AND HOSPICE CARE IS GENERALLY THOUGHT OF AS CARE THAT’S PROVIDED FOR THOSE PATIENTS WHOSE PROGNOSIS IS SIX MONTHS FOR OR LESS TO LIVE NOW THAT THAT PROGNOSIS MIGHT MIGHT BE WRONG AND THEY MIGHT LIVE LONGER OR SHORTER THAN THAT BUT THAT’S THE GENERAL CATEGORY OF PATIENTS. WHO WOULD BE ELIGIBLE FOR THAT TYPE OF HOSPICE CARE SO THOSE THE CATEGORIES OF PATIENCE THE PATIENCE ARE NOT. ALLEGED TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS GAME. ASIANS ARE THE SUBJECT IN THE SCHEME THE PATIENTS ARE VALUABLE TO THIS CAME BECAUSE THEY COME WITH THE MEDICARE BENEFIT. THE PATIENTS ARE THE MECHANISM BY WHICH MEDICARE DOLLARS ARE DIRECTED TO EMBODY AND THE ADVENT. WHERE IS NORMALLY UNDER THE LAW. THOSE REFERRALS TO HOME HEALTHCARE AIDS YOUR HOSPICE AGENCY THIS MUST BE ON THE MERITS HERE IT WAS BASED ON THE LEGAL PROVISION OF KICKBACKS. SO THE ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN MILLION DOLLAR FIGURE THAT I GAVE YOU IS THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT FLOWS THROUGH THE MEDICARE SYSTEM TO THESE CORPORATIONS IN THE COURSE OF THIS GAME AS DESCRIBING COMPLAIN. THE CHECK BACK TO THE PAYMENTS THAT ARE MADE TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN POSITION TO WRITE THOSE REFERRALS. SO COULD BE A DOCTOR COULD BE A NURSE. COULD BE ANOTHER MEDICARE MEDICAL CARE PROFESSIONAL SO THE KICKBACKS YOU KNOW AS AS YOU WILL NOTICE. IS AT A MUCH LOWER DOLLAR AMOUNT THEN. THEN THEN MEDICARE PAYMENTS THE KICKBACKS OR CERTAINLY SUFFICIENT. UNDER THE SCHEME FOR THE DOCTOR THE. PERSON THE OTHER REFERRING PERSON. TO MAKE THAT REFERRAL ON AN IMPROPER BASIS. HELLO THE HL FIVE SO YEAH JUST TO BE CLEAR THEY WILL GET A KICK BACK SO THAT THEY WERE PURCHASED AND THAT YOUR ADDRESS AND NOT ANOTHER AGENCY THERE’S NO EXACTLY SO THERE’S NUMEROUS AGENCIES WHO HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PROVIDE THIS CARE. AND AS WELL AS ALLEGED IN THE COMPLAINT FAMILY HOME HEALTHCARE IS THE LARGEST PROVIDER OF HOME HEALTHCARE IN THE BAY AREA AND THEY ACHIEVED THAT POSITION. THROUGH THIS SCHEME WE ALLEGE IN THE COMPLAINT. BEFORE I START TAKING TUESDAY’S ANYONE ELSE HAVE THEIR FIRST. I THANK YOU YEAH. PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE BEEN A MEMBER WITH ALL THE WAY THEY DRESS I CAN. HARDLY REFERRED TO THE TWO HUNDRED. THEY HAD A DIFFERENT MEDICAL. CONDITIONS ORDERS. RIGHT OFF YES YES THE COMPLAINT AND THE COMPLAINT DOES NOT ALLEGE THAT PATIENTS RECEIVED REFERRALS WHEN THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE RECEIVED REFERRALS THE COMPLAINT ALLEGES THAT THE DIRECTION OF THAT REFERRAL TO A FAMILY OR TO ADD INTO THE SOME OTHER HOME HEALTH OR HOSPICE PROVIDER THE DIRECTION OF THAT REFERRAL WAS MADE ON THE BASIS OF A KICK BACK. IN THE COURSE THE SCHEME SO IT’S NOT THE COMPLAINTS DO NOT ALLEGE THAT PATIENTS RECEIVED POOR QUALITY CARE OR THE PATIENTS RECEIVED ON NEEDED CARE THAT’S NOT THE SCREEN SELECTS WHICH ALLEGED IS THAT DOCTORS NURSES OTHER MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS. ARE RECEIVING KICKBACKS TO DIRECT THAT REFERRAL. TO THESE CORPORATIONS WHICH WE’VE NOT CHARGE WITH THESE VIOLATIONS OF THE KICK BACK ANTI KICKBACK STATUTE. SO I CAN HAVE A LOT OF. WHAT I HAVEN’T HEARD THE BARS. I FOR ONE GAME ONE. SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF. HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE YOU. WE A BUNCH DEAL CHARGED TODAY FOR THIRTY DEFENSE. TWENTY EIGHT INDIVIDUALS THIRTEEN DOCTORS FIVE NURSES OTHER MEDICAL CARE PROFESSIONAL TO CORPORATIONS. THE LEAD DEFENDANT AMANDA SAYING IS THE CEO OF THOSE CORPORATIONS THOSE THE CORPORATIONS THROUGH WHICH SHE PERPETRATED THIS FRAUD. THE DEFENDANTS RANGE IN AGE FROM THEIR THIRTIES FOR THEIR SIXTIES AND BY THE WAY ALL OF THIS WILL BE DETAILED IN THE PRESS RELEASE AND IS DETAILED IN THE CHARGING DOCUMENTS. BUT JUST TO GIVE YOU A SENSE OF WHAT YOU’RE GONNA SEE THERE DEFENDED LOCATIONS SARATOGA PLEASANTON YEAH YOU CITY HEY WORD GENERALLY SPEAKING ALL AROUND THE BAY AREA. ALL RIGHT THERE. THIS MIGHT BE A BETTER QUESTION FOR THAT YEAH. ARE YOU ABLE TO TALK ABOUT HOW YOU LEARNED ABOUT THIS A FIRST GOT TO GET TO THIS HE AND ALL. WHAT YEAH.

OUTLINED N THE FOUR CORNERS OF ALL OF THE COMPLAINTS WHICH YOU SHOULD HAVE ACCESS. ACCESS TO AT THIS POINT. AND POSTING PATIENTS OR. OKAY SO THIS INVESTIGATION ARE MUCH LIKE ANY OTHER THERE WAS A WHOLE RANGE OF INVESTIGATIVE TECHNIQUES THAT WE USE THAT WE CAN USE TITLE THREE WIRE TAPS WE CAN USE GMAIL COVERS IN NATIONAL SECURITY INVESTIGATIONS WE WILL USE I’M OTHER TYPES OF NATIONAL SECURITY TOOLS IN THIS CASE THE UNDER COVER TECHNIQUE WAS ONE THAT WAS WAS UTILIZED AND VALUABLE TOLL. IT’S ONE THAT WE USE IN A LARGE SCALE. INVESTIGATIONS LIKE THIS ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY. OTHER THIRTY PEOPLE NEVER WORKING CHANNEL FIVE I THE THIRTY PEOPLE THAT YOU ARE CHARGING THE WHOLE OF.

WE HAVE NO OTHER TRYING TO ANNOUNCE THIS TIME AS MR FAIR NOTICE THE INVESTIGATION IS ONGOING WITHOUT FURTHER COMMENT OTHER THAN THAT HIS COMMON THAT RIGHT. I KEEP TELLING. THE HOME HEALTHCARE WORKER ONE A LARGE IS GOING DOWN. WAS ■THIS RIGHT AND I&-pTR FAIR NOTED THE AREA OF FRAUD IN HOME HEALTHCARE IS A PARTICULAR AREA OF CONCERN FOR THE FBI AND CERTAINLY FOR HHS AND CERTAINLY FROM MY OFFICE AND I THINK THAT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MAKES IT AN AREA THAT IS RIGHT FOR THE POTENTIAL FOR FRAUD IS THAT IT IS SUCH. A EXPANSIVE AND GROWING AREA OF OUR ECONOMY SO I THINK THAT THAT’S HOW THEY DRESS YOUR QUESTION. LAST ONE. BEING ONE OF THE YES. MORE. YEAH AND I. THINK ABOUT WORDS YOU GET. PROBABLY ABOUT THAT. SURE AND THEN AND THEN WE’LL FINISH UP OUT OF MARYLAND IT IS N INTELLIGENCE AND NATIONAL SECURITY SUMMIT SO PROBABLY SOME OF OUR NATION’S TOP LEADERS I WILL BE HAVING A DISCUSSION WE WILL HAVE THAT ON THE STREAM AND THEN OF COURSE WE’VE GOT SOME TOP STORIES FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN TERMS OF BUSINESS NEWS WHAT AUTO MAKERS ARE TRYING TO DO TO STEP UP THEIR GAME.
