“The Mayor has been and remains committed to cooperating in this matter. On Monday night, the FBI approached the mayor after an event.
“The Mayor immediately complied with the FBI’s request and provided them with electronic devices. The mayor has not been accused of any wrongdoing and continues to cooperate with the investigation.”
This action follows the FBI’s recent search of a campaign consultant’s home and the seizure of electronic devices and materials related to the investigation.
“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. I have nothing to hide,” Adams said.
The probe also involves a Brooklyn construction company and a Washington, D.C. university with ties to both Turkey and Adams.
Additionally, individuals in Adams’ circle have previously faced financial scrutiny, including his ex-buildings department commissioner being charged with taking bribes.
