The Federal Bureau of Investigation has confirmed that Congressman Michael San Nicolas has filed a complaint.
Beyond that, however, the FBI said it cannot expand on the nature of the complaint or confirm or deny the existence of an investigation, which is the bureau’s stand operating procedure.
In his response made to the accusations against him, San Nicolas said the allegations are coming from a number of various local government officials who are currently under an active FBI investigation that was initiated in the December-January period.
During this period, San Nicolas said his office was contacted and threatened to take certain actions in order to avoid political attacks.
“We refused, and I immediately engaged the FBI. The investigation is ongoing, to include the recent actions taken against me and my family these past several days,” San Nicolas said.
The administration and a number of Democrats have been at loggerheads with San Nicolas over war claims and other issues.
But in an interview with the Patti Arroyo show on NewsTalk K57, Adelup chief of staff Tony Babauta said he has not been contacted by the FBI, nor does he know of anybody in the administration who has been contacted by the FBI.
