FBI agents on Thursday carried out a search warrant at the Brooklyn home of Brianna Suggs, a campaign consultant and top fundraiser for Mayor Eric Adams.
According to WABC, the agents arrived at the Lincoln Place home on Thursday morning, with Suggs reportedly being home at the time the search warrant was executed. She has not been arrested.
Adams’ office said that Suggs is not a City Hall employee, and is not involved in the operation of the city.
Suggs coordinated Adams’ political fundraising activities for his 2021 campaign, reportedly raising $18.4 million for his 2021 campaign and at least $900,000 so far for his 2025 reelection campaign.
“The campaign has always held itself to the highest standards. The campaign will of course comply with any inquiries, as appropriate,” said Adams 2021 campaign counsel Vito Pitta.
The raid comes as Adams abruptly canceled his trip to Washington DC, during which he and other mayors were scheduled to meet with Biden administration officials to discuss the surge in illegal immigrants that have found their way to major cities.
Adams posted a video to his X account on Thursday morning from a plane, in which he said “we are headed to DC to meet with our Congressional delegation and the White House to address this real issue with the asylum and migrant issue in our city.”
According to CBS News New York, sources said that Adams was rushing back to New York for a “matter he has to deal with.”
