The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on Thursday, 2nd November, 2023 raided the home of New York City Mayor Eric Adam’s top fundraiser.

According to the New York Post, the Brooklyn home of Brianna Suggs, who served as a consultant to Adams, was the target of the raid.

Mayor Adams, was reported to have abruptly canceled several meetings in Washington, D.C. Thursday morning, apparently in response to the raid.

Suggs has earned over $150,000 for Adam’s campaign since 2021, and has received more than $16,500 in payments from Adams’ accounts.

"I heard screaming maybe two or three hours ago", one neighbor said, according to The Post. "I heard helicopters (also) … the house is boarded up". 

According to report by The New York Times, City Hall would not explain why Adams canceled his meetings in Washington.

Mr. Lutvak, the mayor’s spokesman, said in an email, "The mayor is returning to New York City to address a matter. 

"These meetings will be rescheduled as soon as possible". 

The raid comes after Adams warned the Biden administration’s border crisis will "destroy New York City" as officials grapple with an influx of more than 110,000 migrants since last year.

Adams said in September, "Let me tell you something, New Yorkers. Never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this. I don’t see an ending to this. This issue will destroy New York City. Destroy New York City. 

"We’re getting 10,000 migrants a month. 

"We had a $12 billion deficit that we’re going to have to cut. Every service in this city is going to be impacted. All of us. 

"It’s going to come to your neighborhoods. "All of us are going to be impacted by this. I said it last year when we had 15,000. I’m telling you now with 110,000. The city we knew we’re about to lose. And we’re all in this together".
