Report: Former Rep. Schock In Legal Battle With Feds Over Records

Alpha Media

(AP) – Unsealed court records indicate that former Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock was issued a federal grand jury subpoena seeking campaign and congressional records the day before he resigned his seat.

The records released Monday by U.S. District Judge Sue Myerscough in Springfield also reveal Schock in April filed an emergency motion to quash the subpoena, calling it “oppressive and unreasonable,” and accusing the government of misconduct.

The records show that from April 9 through June 8, Schock refused to produce any congressional or campaign documents, and has since asserted various privileges to try to limit prosecutors’ access to some of his papers.

Schock stepped down in March amid mounting scrutiny of his spending, including the “Downton Abbey”-style redecoration of his Capitol Hill office, travel on private aircraft and unreported trips abroad.
