FBI Seizes NYC Mayor Adams’ Phones in Fundraising Investigation

by Ben Whedon


The FBI seized New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams’ cell phones this week as part of an investigation into his campaign fundraising efforts, a source has told CNN.

Adams campaign attorney Boyd Johnson confirmed to the outlet that he “immediately complied with the FBI’s request and provided them with electronic devices” after the bureau requested them on Monday evening.

“The mayor has not been accused of any wrongdoing and continues to cooperate with the investigation,” Johnson added.

Investigators are looking into whether the 2021 campaign secretly worked with the government of Turkey to receive illegal foreign contributions, The New York Times reported. The probe saw federal agents raid the home of Brianna Suggs, Adams’ primary fundraiser, last week.

Adams for his part, stated that “I have nothing to hide.”

“As a former member of law enforcement, I expect all members of my staff to follow the law and fully cooperate with any sort of investigation — and I will continue to do exactly that,” he said.
