Days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation searched two offices belonging to Sen. Ron Calderon, fellow Los Angeles-area Democrat Sen. Kevin de León said he received a subpoena from the U.S. Attorney's office in Los Angeles.
In a statement, de León said he received a subpoena on Thursday. He added that he intended "to cooperate fully" but would not disclose any details of the request because the U.S. attorney's office had requested confidentiality. Officials have also kept mum on the reason for the searches of Calderon's offices.
"We assume it's related," to the searches of Calderon's offices, Greg Hayes, a spokesperson for de León, told Capitol Alert.
De León will be interviewed by a grand jury in July, said his chief of staff, Dan Reeves. When asked whether de León is a subject in the investigation, he said, "We've been advised that he is not."
