Federal investigators descended on the New York Police Department Sergeant Benevolent Association office in Manhattan on October 5, as part of an investigation involving a police union headed by its controversial president, Ed Mullins.
“All I have been told is that the FBI has raided SBA headquarters and it is in connection with the ongoing investigation,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said during a briefing on Tuesday.
Andrew Quinn, who serves as the union’s general counsel, was not immediately available for comment. Granthshala has also requested comment from the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and the FBI’s New York Field Office.
An FBI spokesman confirmed New York Daily News That the agency took “a law enforcement action in connection with the ongoing investigation” with the union office, which claims to represent 13,000 active and retired NYPD sergeants.
Mr Mullins’ home in Port Washington was also reportedly targeted.
Mr Mullins – who vowed that the union was “declaring war” against Mayor de Blasio – posted large and profane statements on social media after the arrest record of the mayor’s daughter in 2020 following an antiracist revolt related misconduct A separate internal NYPD for All over the city and in the US.
The Sangh and its Twitter account have been widely criticized for promoting hate speech and defending police violence.
A post on the union’s Twitter account read, “How the NYPD can save the city of NY from rioting anarchists when mayors object to daughter being dumped.” “We now know why he is refusing to organize mounted units and preventing the NYPD from doing its job.”
