New York City Mayor's electronic devices seized in federal investigation

New York City Mayor Eric Adams had two iPhones and an iPad seized by the FBI in pursuit of a court-authorized search warrant. The devices were returned a few days later.

The seizure was part of a federal investigation regarding Adams' campaign funds. The Democratic mayor's chief campaign fundraiser, Briana Suggs, had her house raided by the FBI a few days beforehand. The investigation seeks to determine if Adams' mayoral campaign received foreign donations from Turkey.

The investigation examines whether Adams used his influence as Brooklyn Borough President to pressure the New York City Fire Department into waiving safety regulations in order to grant a temporary certificate of occupancy to a Turkish Mission.

Adams urged his staff to comply with the law and investigation.

"As a former member of law enforcement, I expect all members of my staff to follow the law and fully cooperate with any sort of investigation—and I will continue to do exactly that. I have nothing to hide," Adams said in a statement to CNN.

Adams is not formally accused of any wrongdoing.
