From Jon Lender, Hartford Courant:
The office of the U.S. Attorney is convening a criminal grand jury to investigate claims of illegal fundraising by the state Democratic Party for the benefit of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
Criminal subpoenas have been issued by U.S. prosecutors in recent weeks to a few individuals as part of a federal investigation into Democrats’ funding of Malloy’s 2014 re-election campaign. Recipients have included people who worked for the party during that state election cycle, sources have told The Courant.
On the state level, election regulators recently approved a negotiated settlement in a high-profile civil lawsuit related to campaign emails from Malloy’s 2014 campaign.
