Lawyer: No surprise federal prosecutors intend to file charges against NY Congressman Grimm
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 2:03 AM EDT
The attorney representing Republican U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm says he's not surprised his client is facing federal criminal charges.
Grimm has been dogged by allegations of campaign violations since his first campaign for Congress in 2009 and 2010. A House Ethics Committee announced in November that Grimm was under investigation for possible campaign finance violations.
McGinley maintains Grimm has done nothing wrong and that he'll be vindicated.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Brooklyn said he couldn't confirm, deny or comment on the case. The FBI's New York office also declined to comment.
