Federal Bureau of Investigation searches GOP consulting firm in Annapolis

FBI spokeswoman Linday Ram told the newspaper that the investigation is being run out of the bureau's Washington field office.

The FBI has raided the Annapolis office of Strategic Campaign Group, a Republican fundraising and campaign consulting firm in Maryland, according to several local news outlets.

On Thursday, FBI agents swarmed the firm's offices on Main Street in Annapolis, placing garbage bags over the windows to keep onlookers from peering inside while agents worked.

Rogers' firm also did campaign work for Maryland Republican lawmakers.

The raids followed the sacking of FBI director James Comey, who had been leading an investigation into alleged links between Trump officials and Russian Federation during the 2016 USA presidential campaign. " There's no word yet whether the FBI's raid is related the FBI's ongoing investigation into Donald Trump's campaign".

While the rate of economic growth leaves much to be desired, at 0.7% annual pace in the first quarter, unemployment hit a 10-year low, at 4.5%.

"Our suspicion is that this is just a carry-over from that", Rogers said. Cuccinelli said the Conservative StrikeForce PAC raised $2.2 million in 2013, largely by promising donors the money would help Cuccinelli in his ultimately unsuccessful Virginia campaign against McAuliffe. The publication details how Strategic Campaign Group made calls on behalf of and controlled the Conservative Strike Force PAC, which Cuccinelli accused of pulling wool over his followers" eyes via a "malicious "Scam PAC' operation".

Agents entered Strategic Campaign Group around 8 a.m. on Thursday, much to the surprise of tenants inside.

The suit was eventually settled for $85,000.

Cuccinelli told The Associated Press he has not been interviewed by law enforcement officials. "I think we did that successfully", Cuccinelli's statement said.

It's unclear what the Federal Bureau of Investigation was seeking at the offices of the group, which advises Republican candidates.
