New York Mayor Bill De Blasio is now a top supporter of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign. This morning, federal authorities made arrests which resulted from an investigation into de Blasio’s fundraising operation!
Four NYPD officials were arrested along with Jeremy Reichberg, a politically-associated friend of de Blasio who was caught giving police extravagant gifts.
Four NYPD officials were busted Monday morning as part of the sweeping federal corruption probe rocking the police department and Mayor de Blasio’s office, law enforcement sources told The Post.
Deputy Chief Michael Harrington, Deputy Inspector James Grant, Sgt. David Villanueva and Richard Ochetal were arrested at their homes at 6 a.m. by FBI agents and hauled into 26 Federal Plaza in lower Manhattan, sources said.
The arrests mark the first time NYPD officers have been charged in the 2 ½ year probe, which focuses on lavish gifts and vacations cops accepted in exchange for official services, such as security details and police escorts.
De Blasio’s buddy, Jeremy Reichberg — a police buff known for his NYPD connections, was also taken away in handcuffs. Reichberg, the proprietor of a venture capital firm, allegedly gave gifts to several officers in return for favors.

Each faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
These arrests likely resulted from businessman Jona Rechnitz, who was also giving gifts to NYPD officials, and pleaded guilty and has been assisting federal investigators. And now, the investigation continues into de Blasio’s inner circle and associates about questionable fundraising practices.
This is how Democrats operate. Now, it’s time for those same federal authorities to stop Hillary Clinton after decades of criminal wrongdoing.
