Mayor dodges questions on reports that federal grand jury is reviewing evidence in campaign probe

Mayor Eric Adams on Monday refused to take questions about the recent news that a federal grand jury is reviewing evidence related to the FBI probe into his 2021 campaign, instead referring reporters to his attorneys.

Reporters attempted to ask Adams about the latest development in the ongoing probe during an unrelated June 10 Brooklyn press conference. The Daily News and New York Post broke the news on Friday, with the articles indicating that at least one person within the mayor’s orbit has received a subpoena from the US Attorney’s office in Manhattan, which is leading the inquiry, in recent weeks.
