The FBI raided the home of a top fundraiser for New York City Mayor Eric Admas (D) on Thursday.
The agency declined to comment on the situation following the event that involved one of the top people responsible for helping Adams become the city's mayor.

"A LinkedIn profile belonging to Suggs had listed her as the "Fundraiser and Director of Logistics" of Adams' 2021 mayoral campaign," Fox News reported.
"According to campaign finance records, the Adams 2025 campaign also has paid Suggs Solutions LLC $98,286.20," it added.

"No one was arrested but Suggs was issued a subpoena to testify in front of a federal grand jury," the New York Post reported.
"The shocking news came as Adams trekked down to Washington DC for a meeting with the White House on the migrant crisis but immediately turned around once he was informed of the raid — which City Hall confirmed was connected to a federal probe looking into his campaign," it continued.
The raid came as a surprise with no warning regarding the background. Adams raised over $18.4 million during his 2021 campaign with her in leadership.
Suggs, 25, recently graduated from Brooklyn College in 2020 and has had close connections with the mayor's top leadership.
The news of the FBI raid will certainly lead to a closer look at her background, with some discussion of a potential kickback scheme related to the Turkish government, though nothing official has been noted.
The news certainly has the attention of Adams, however, as his quick flight back to New York showed, where he is likely now involved in dealing with the matter.
