…and you’ll love this one….was Cuellar investigating organized crime or investing in organized crime?
What to Homeland Security Agent in Charge Vance Callender and Henry Cuellar have in common? Recent search warrants executed at their homes. And they appear to have some connection. From 2017. https://t.co/GsPm8DHn7L

Which agency raided his home was unclear. ICE told CNBC in a statement, “As public servants working for a law enforcement agency, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) takes allegations of misconduct very seriously.”
Callender has not commented on the raid. A neighbor reported seeing “about 15 plainclothes officers.”
