SPRINGFIELD, Ill (AP) — Federal prosecutors have handed former Congressman Aaron Schock a second subpoena for financial records, texts and emails as part of a grand jury probe into spending by the Peoria Republican.
The new subpoena was disclosed Thursday as prosecutor Timothy Bass appeared before U.S. District Court Judge Sue Myerscough. Bass said it’s “utter nonsense” that Schock hasn’t fully complied with a grand jury request issued months ago.READ MORE: West Side Middle Schoolers' Holiday Wrapping Paper Design Goes National
