FBI in early stages of investigation into Annapolis political consulting firm











ANNAPOLIS, Md.

The FBI indicates it will be some time before a clear paper trail emerges in the investigation of a political consulting firm in Annapolis, the 11 News I-Team has learned.

Agents with a search warrant raided the offices of Strategic Campaign Group on Main Street in Annapolis on Thursday.

The two top officers of the firm were in the office Thursday as FBI agents executed a search warrant. Links to the firm's officers have since been removed from the firm's website.

The I-Team found the third-floor offices dark on Friday. Visitors can't even get to that floor as of Friday, as the elevator is locked off.

SCG, as it's known, does fundraising and consulting for Republican candidates and conservative causes around the country. It also bills itself as a pioneer in the use of technology in politics.

A spokesperson at the FBI field office in Washington told the I-Team not to expect any documents related to the case to be made public anytime soon. That's an indication the investigation is in an early stage, with agents now going through the evidence to follow leads.

3. Would the FBI contact someone if they were part of a case?

 

I found this AP story quoting Cuccinelli:


Cuccinelli said Wednesday in a statement to The Associated Press that he'd not spoken to any federal law enforcement officials about Strategic Campaign Group but is "curious" to see where the case goes.

"It was my hope when we brought our lawsuit to cast light on the dark practices of scam PACs. I think we did that successfully," Cuccinelli said. "Any cleaning up of these practices would be good for our political system.
