I Team Exclusive Mayor De Blasio To Meet With Federal Prosecutors Sources Say

A spokesman for the mayor did not respond to questions on Friday morning.

Prosecutors from the Manhattan U.S. attorney's public corruption unit are looking at whether people who helped raise money for de Blasio's 2013 election campaign and a non-profit organization that his advisers operated received favorable treatment from the mayor or his aides at City Hall, according to news reports.

The New York Times previously reported that the feds suspect de Blasio may have accepted donations from major NYC business players and developers during his 2013 run for mayor - some of them funneled through his "Campaign for One New York" nonprofit - in exchange for return favors while he's been in office.

The mayor's office and the US attorney's office both declined to comment.

The newspaper said the mayor will meet with authorities without any immunity protections, but added that he had not been subpoenaed testify. The investigator was appointed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a frequent de Blasio rival.

De Blasio was met by a mob of reporters as he arrived to the 9 a.m. meeting in a black, unmarked police SUV, according to Newsday.
