FBI has launched investigation into Congressman Aaron Schock

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Associated Press is reporting that the Justice Department is formally investigating whether Rep. Aaron Schock committed crimes with his office expenditures and business dealings.

The government is convening a federal grand jury in Springfield and the FBI has started issuing subpoenas to compel people close to the Republican congressman to testify.

Schock abruptly resigned earlier this week following a list of revelations about his business deals and lavish spending on everything from overseas travel to office decor in the style of “Downton Abbey.”
