UPDATE: The Capital reports that the Strategic Campaign Group’s Principle, Kelley Rogers, has said that the raid stems from a Virginia Gubernatorial race in 2013 when Ken Cuccinelli lost to current Governor, Terry McAuliffe. Rogers claims that the case was settled and that this raid will clear his name and that of the firm.

WBAL-TV is reporting that the firm may have ties to Paul Manafort,  the former campaign manager for President Donald Trump.

The FBI has told us that they will not comment on the raid.


The FBI has confirmed that agents have raided an office at 191 Main Street in the heart of downtown Annapolis.

While unconfirmed by the FBI, a neighboring business told us that he believes they have raided the offices of GOP consultancy Strategic Campaign Group.

 

It is unknown at this point why the office was raided or what (if anything) was seized.

The company is on the third floor of the Synergics Building on top of Red Red Wine Bar. Castlebay Irish Pub.

 

More info as it becomes available.
