Grand juries convene over de Blasio fundraising probes

Two grand juries have convened in Manhattan and have begun hearing testimony related to the federal and state investigations into Mayor de Blasio’s campaign fundraising, a new report said Thursday night The revelation that prosecutors are presenting evidence about the de Blasio Administration’s fund-raising efforts does not mean the mayor will face criminal charges, according to The New York Times, but showed that more subpoenas could be forthcoming in the growing investigation of de Blasio and his aides. The state investigation focuses on whether de Blasio and his nonprofit groups violated the law by raising money and funneling it through Democratic county committees for State Senate candidates. The federal instigation revolves around whether de Blasio helped donors who contributed to this 2013 mayoral campaign.
