Marxist Mayor in Dutch with the Feds over Money
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was interviewed by federal investigators for more than four hours Friday in connection to fundraising activities for his campaign.

A lawyer for the Democratic mayor did not immediately comment. The mayor has had extensive preparation this week ahead of the meeting.
"We remain confident that at all times the Mayor and his staff acted appropriately and well within the law", mayoral spokesman Eric Phillips said in a statement. Mayor de Blasio has not been subpoenaed.
