NBC’s Marc Caputo is reporting that Andrew Gillum surrendered at 10 am today to federal authorities and a Gillum indictment is expected to be unsealed at 1 pm.
Caputo reports that the exact charges are unclear and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida would neither confirm nor deny details about the criminal case against Gillum.
In a written statement to NBC News, Gillum acknowledged the case but said it is politically motivated without offering specifics.
“I have spent the last 20 years of my life in public service and continue to fight for the people,” Gillum said. “Every campaign I’ve run has been done with integrity. Make no mistake that this case is not legal, it is political. Throughout my career I have always stood up for the people of Florida and have spoken truth to power. There’s been a target on my back ever since I was the mayor of Tallahassee. They found nothing then, and I have full confidence that my legal team will prove my innocence now.”
Caputo reported that two sources with whom Gillum spoke Tuesday told NBC News that he began phoning friends frantically about the criminal case. Neither would speak on the record because they weren’t authorized to speak on his behalf. They said he is scheduled to meet with prosecutors at 10 a.m. and that his indictment could be unsealed at 1 p.m. ET.
That source said Gillum was called Tuesday morning and informed he was going to be criminally charged for campaign finance-related charges.
Gillum had been under federal investigation for years, starting with his time as Tallahassee mayor when he accepted freebies from lobbyists and special interests — including a free New York Harbor boat rides and tickets in New York to the musical “Hamilton,” which were supplied by an undercover FBI agent posing as corrupt developer. Gillum was not criminally charged in that scheme, but he agreed to pay a $5,000 state ethics fine for improperly accepting gifts.
Andy–I’m certain that this makes your children proud.
Have you told George S. or did he know it was coming?
Remember, DeSantis only won by less than 0.5%. Don’t underestimate voter stupidity…
Other than being charged with murder there is nothing that will make a man turn to Jesus like a Federal Indictment.
With the “Biden” administration being in the position of oversight of the Federal Justice System its kind of a stretch to logically follow the claim of “political motivations”.
Unless the “Biden” administration is going to indict him to find him innocent which would place him in a protected state of claiming double jepordy to all the future evidence which may drop afterwards.
You know Soros and any other puppet string pullers of the “Biden” administration consider Gillum to be their Golden Child, The Apple of Their Eye, The everything and anything they ever wished for to carry out their demise of the USA.
Florida really dodged a bullet in 2018 when Desantis edged out Gillum. Gov Desantis is in the national presidential conversation while Gillum is getting slapped with federal fraud charges.
“The CSC Director Ceka Rose Green In 2018, “she was the director of special events and chief of information for Andrew Gillum’s 2018 gubernatorial campaign.”
CSC Director Green has close ties to Sharon Lettman Hicks.
” The two have been friends for 35 years, and Green once served as the vice president of Lettman-Hicks’ public relations firm.”
“One of her references for the position was Ginny Dailey, attorney and wife to Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey.”
“I have been very impressed with her leadership at the Children’s Home Society and in other community activities where she’s demonstrated leadership,” said Ginny Dailey.”
The CSC Director who has close ties with Andrew Gillum and Sharon Lettman Hicks recently diverted $100,000 of CSC taxpayer funds to the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce. They should include this in the indictment.
Maybe he will get to bunk with his good Biddy Scott.
