FBI agents raided the headquarters of the New York City police sergeants’ union Tuesday morning.
FBI New York confirmed to Fox News that its federal agents were at located at the headquarters of the Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) located on Worth Street and are there “carrying out a law enforcement action in connection with an ongoing investigation.”
“We cannot confirm or deny what the investigation is about, and have not done so on the record,” an FBI spokesperson said in an email to Fox News.
A related raid was conducted in Port Washington, New York, in Long Island’s Nassau County, Gothamist reported, citing FBI spokeswoman Amy Thorenson.
The newspaper said records show SBA President Ed Mullins owns a home in Port Washington. Mullins has been under NYPD internal investigation for alleged misconduct stemming for comments made on Twitter.
Mullin posted the arrest record for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s 25-year-old daughter, Chiara, on the platform following her arrest in June 2020 during violent demonstrations in reaction to the death of George Floyd.
Mullin also was under scrutiny for using profanity to describe NYC health commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot after a report surfaced that she didn’t care about police officers’ lack of masks and PPE at the onset of the pandemic.
He also used offensive language to describe City Councilman Ritchie Torres after he and mayoral candidate and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams called for an investigation into a potential police slowdown last summer during a surge of shootings, the New York Post previously reported.
