HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The leaders of the Connecticut General Assembly are releasing copies of federal grand jury subpoenas stemming from a probe into former House Speaker Chris Donovan's failed congressional campaign.
Two subpoenas were issued to the Office of Legislative Management on Oct. 17 and Nov. 14 of last year.
One sought emails of one of Donovan's former legislative aides as well as any documents concerning a bill imposing taxes on roll-your-own tobacco shop owners and another bill authorizing state bonding. The second subpoena sought documents involving several other legislative employees and their dealings with the same two bills.
Legislative leaders circulated the subpoenas to the media on Friday with permission from the U.S. Attorney, who said their release now would not interfere with the office's investigation of an alleged campaign financing scheme.
