Last Thursday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted a raid on the Brooklyn residence of Brianna Suggs, chief fundraiser for New York City Mayor Eric Adams.
During the raid, FBI agents seized Adams’ cellphones and iPad in connection with an ongoing federal corruption investigation related to his 2021 campaign.
According to Daily Mail, Ms. Suggs has raised over $2.5 million for Adam’s 2025 re-election bid.
Upon exiting the premises, the agents carried away a cardboard box containing evidence collected during their search.

The FBI reportedly seized Mayor Eric Adams’ electronic devices earlier this week in connection with a federal corruption probe.
The investigation is tied to his 2021 campaign and involves allegations of the campaign colluding with the Turkish government and other entities to direct money into his mayoral effort, according to sources who spoke to both The New York Post and The New York Times.
Agents are said to have approached Adams on the street and requested that his security team step aside before executing a court-authorized warrant for the seizure of at least two cellphones and an iPad.
The electronics were returned within a few days.
