Lawyer: Federal prosecutors to file criminal charges against NY's Republican Congressman Grimm
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, April 25, 2014 5:18 PM EDT
Republican U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm's attorney says federal prosecutors in New York plan on filing criminal charges against the lawmaker.
The House Ethics Committee announced in November that Grimm was under investigation for possible campaign finance violations. That committee said it would defer its inquiry because of a separate Department of Justice investigation.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Brooklyn says he can't confirm, deny or comment on the case.
