Democrats Gave The Boston Bomber A Stimulus Check


Infamous Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev received a 1,400 stimulus check under the Biden admin’s watch.

A filing from the US Attorney’s Office of Massachusetts stated that Tsarnaev should give his $1,400 stimulus check to his victims due to the fact he’s ordered to pay over $100,000,000 to his victims.

It’s also reported that since 2013 Tsarnaev has received over $21,000 while in prison and has only paid $2,000 towards his restitution fees.

So, more than likely Tsarnaev is in prison buying items from the prison’s commissary.

Fox News covered the story, check out what they reported:

Senate Democrats cleared the way for convicted murderers like Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to receive stimulus checks when they passed the American Rescue Plan of 2021 last March without a GOP amendment that would have blocked inmates from receiving the checks.

Tsarnaev has been ordered by prosecutors to return a $1,400 COVID-19 relief payment he received last summer along with other money sent to him, according to a court filing Wednesday.

Tsarnaev so far has only paid $2,202.03 of the more than $101 million in restitution owed to his victims. The filing said the $1,400 in COVID-19 relief money should instead be used as restitution.

Tsarnaev was sentenced to death two years after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, which left three people dead and hundreds hurt. The death sentence was overturned in 2020 after a court ruled that a trial judge erred by excluding some evidence. An appeal to reinstate his death sentence is before the U.S. Supreme Court.

CNN had more on the story:

Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should turn over money to his victims, including a previously deposited $1,400 federal stimulus payment, the US Attorney’s Office of Massachusetts said in a filing Wednesday morning.

The filing is requesting the Federal Bureau of Prisons to turn over funds from Tsarnaev’s inmate trust account. Tsarnaev is currently serving a life sentence in a federal prison in Florence, Colorado.

Despite having more than $21,000 transferred to his account since 2013, prosecutors said Tsarnaev has only paid a little over $2,000 toward restitution.

Tsarnaev owes $3,000 for a special assessment and $101,126,627 in criminal restitution, filings show. Four were killed and hundreds were injured after Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan set off two shrapnel bombs near the Boston Marathon finish line in 2013.
