On Tuesday, the New York Daily News reported that FBI agents have carried out a raid on the Manhattan headquarters of a major union representing New York City police sergeants.

"The feds descended on the Manhattan headquarters of the controversial NYPD sergeants union Tuesday, the Daily News has learned," reported Stephen Rex Brown and Noah Goldberg. "While the details of the investigation were not revealed, an FBI spokeswoman confirmed to The News that the agency was 'carrying out a law enforcement action in connection with an ongoing investigation' into the Sergeants Benevolent Association."

The SBA's leader, Ed Mullins, has come under repeated controversy.

In 2015, Mullins attacked the city settlement with the family of NYPD chokehold victim Eric Garner as "obscene." He also posted the arrest report of Mayor Bill de Blasio's daughter after she was involved in an incident at a George Floyd protest, which violates NYPD policy, and called city health commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot a "b*tch" with "blood on her hands" for not giving officers more personal protective equipment.
