FBI seizes New York Mayor Adams’ phones in federal campaign fundraising probe

Washington, Nov 11 (UNI) FBI agents have seized the cell phones belonging to New York City Mayor Eric Adams as part of an investigation related to campaign fundraising violations, CNN reported.

The seizure occurred earlier this week after a court issued a search warrant, the report said on Friday, citing a source familiar with the matter.

Such a development means a significant change in the investigation, bringing it directly to Adams, the report said.

FBI is handling the investigation along with the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, the report said.

Adams urged his staff to follow the law and fully cooperate with the investigation.

“I will continue to do exactly that. I have nothing to hide,” Adams said in a statement quoted in the report.

Adams spokesperson Boyd Johnson said the mayor is fully cooperating with the investigation and has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
