The FBI again raided Ald. Ed BURKE’s office & finance cmte office in Chicago City Hall, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

CBS 2 legal analyst Irv Miller says a second raid is unusual and agents would have had to secure a new warrant to go back in today.

CBS 2 reached out to the FBI, but they GLOMAR’d.
During the 1st raid, computer hard drives, several boxes stacked on top of one another & at least one computer monitor were among the items removed by a half dozen fed agents from the back door of his office.

Burke is often referred to as Chicago’s most powerful alderman.
In addition to serving as an alderman, Edward BURKE is also an attorney, specializing in property tax assessments. Representatives for his law firm said they didn’t know anything about what was happening at Burke’s aldermanic offices.
BURKE’s law firm represented TRUMP for years, helping him challenge his property tax assessments for Trump Tower.

Interestingly, Burke stopped representing Trump earlier this year, citing “irreconcilable differences,” according to published reports.
