Feds Join Criminal Investigation Into Former Brooklyn DA

And now it’s federal.
Federal investigators have reportedly joined the New York State investigation against former Brooklyn District Attorney Charles J. Hynes, the New York Post reported tonight.
Two assistant US attorneys from the US Attorney’s office in Brooklyn were reportedly deputized by New York State Attorney General Schneiderman’s office last week, and two assistant New York State Attorneys General were deputized as federal prosecutors then, as well.
The US Attorney’s office has reportedly already interviewed two DA detective investigators who allegedly chauffeured PR guru Mortimer Matz to and from his Upper East Side home while Matz allegedly worked as Hynes’ personal political consultant.
This would be another misuse of public resources to aid Hynes’ private interests, and would likely be illegal.
Matz was allegedly paid $1.1 million dollars over several years to work for Hynes’ campaign and for Hynes personally. The money allegedly came from asset foreclosures in criminal cases – an illegal use of state funds that could reportedly be charged as a series of felony larceny counts.
