This is a pretty big deal. This guy is close to the Clintons and the longest serving DC council member. Currently under grand jury investigation for pay for play.
This is Friday’s news so forgive me if already posted.
FBI agents raided the home of D.C. councilman Jack Evans (D) on Friday, a day after a confidential memo made public alleged that Evans “knowingly” violated ethics rules to benefit his friends and clients instead of serving the interests of Washington’s transit agency.
Kadia Koroma, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office for the District confirmed the “court-authorized law enforcement activity” at Evans’s house in a statement to the Post.
Samantha Shero, a spokeswoman for the FBI’s Washington Field Office, declined to offer further comment on the activity to the paper.
“I heard pounding on the door at 6 a.m., and I woke up and I looked out and saw all these cars,” a neighbor told the Post.
The raid comes just a day after news station WTOP obtained a confidential memo written by the D.C. Metro’s general counsel in May that accused Evans of “failing to disclose a conflict of interest” during the course of his work.
