The FBI raided the headquarters of the NYPD sergeants’ union and its president’s home

  • The FBI raided the headquarters of the New York City Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) on Tuesday.
  • A DOJ spokesman confirmed that a law enforcement action happened there, but didn’t provide details.
  • The home of the SBA president was also searched by agents, according to the AP.

The FBI on Tuesday raided the New York City headquarters of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, a union that represents about 13,000 current and former police sergeants. 

The purpose of the FBI investigation is unknown, and the agency didn’t immediately return Insider’s request for comment. A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Southern District of New York confirmed to Insider that “a law enforcement action” was conducted at the union office but declined to comment further.  

The SBA is the fifth largest police union in the country, according to its website, and its president, Ed Mullins, has become well-known for his attack-dog language targeting New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. 

Mullin’s home in Port Washington, Long Island, was also searched by agents on Tuesday, the Associated Press reported. Mullin’s office didn’t immediately return Insider’s request for comment.

The union leader was recently disciplined by the NYPD for sharing a police report on social media that documented the arrest of the mayor’s daughter, Chiara, during protests in the city, according to The New York Times.

Mullins also made national headlines in July 2020 when he appeared on Fox News with a QAnon mug behind him. QAnon is a far-right leaning conspiracy theory that supports the bogus claim that the 2020 election was rigged against former president Donald Trump.
