Congressman Michael Grimm Arrested
New York Congressman Michael Grimm surrendered Monday morning to the FBI.
Grimm is believed to be facing charges related to a private business deal that he made prior to being elected to Congress that involved an Upper East Side health food restaurant.
He’s expected to be arraigned in federal court later Monday.
The exact charges have not been made public, but last week Grimm’s lawyer, William McGinley, confirmed in a statement that prosecutors have said they intend to file criminal charges…
One of Grimm’s fundraisers was arrested earlier this year by the FBI and is accused of using straw donors to funnel more than $10,000 into the Republican’s campaign.
Grimm has not been accused of any wrongdoing in that case, which is still under investigation.
In January, Grimm erupted at a local TV reporter on camera and threatened that he would “break you in half, like a boy” after the State of the Union address when he was asked about the federal investigation into his campaign finances.
