Federal agents raided the home of the chief fundraiser for New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams on Thursday as Adams reportedly canceled several meetings in Washington, D.C, according to The New York Times.

Brianna Suggs, a campaign consultant for Adams, reportedly had her Brooklyn residence searched by agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s public corruption program, which investigates violations of federal law by public officials.

“I heard screaming maybe two or three hours ago,” one neighbor told The New York Post. “I heard helicopters (also) … the house is boarded up.”

An FBI spokesman confirmed to the Times that authorities were at Suggs’ home “carrying out law enforcement action.”

Suggs has raised approximately $2.5 million for Adams’ 2025 re-election campaign, which has paid her and her political consulting company, Suggs Solutions, nearly $100,000, according to city records reviewed by the Times. During his first mayoral campaign, the operation paid Suggs more than $50,000.

Suggs also earned approximately $100,000 from Striving for a Better New York, a political action committee that supports state candidates who align with Adams’ policies, the outlet reported.

According to campaign finance filings reviewed by the Post, Suggs also received more than $16,500 in personal payments from Adams’ accounts.

Vito Pitta, a spokesperson for Adams’ 2021 campaign, told the Post that it “has always held itself to the highest standards.”

“The campaign will, of course, comply with any inquiries as appropriate,” Pitta said.

Charles Kretchmer Lutvak, a spokesman for Adams, told the Times the mayor’s office was unaware of the raid.

“I’m not aware of that,” Lutvak said, adding that the city did not employ Suggs.

Adams left for Washington, D.C., on Thursday morning to meet with officials from the Biden administration to discuss the mass influx of illegal immigrants in New York City.

The Democratic mayor joined two other left-wing city officials — including Brandon Johnson of Chicago and Mike Johnston of Denver — to ask for additional federal funding and expedited approval for illegal migrants to begin working in their cities.

Adams pledged to keep the public informed about his trip to the nation’s capital until he abruptly canceled the meetings to return to New York City.

Officials from City Hall declined to explain why.

“The mayor is returning to New York City to address a matter,” Lutvak said in an email to the Times when reportedly asked why the mayor was returning to the city earlier than expected. “These meetings will be rescheduled as soon as possible.”
