This is Ed Mullins, head of an NYPD union. He's the guy that declared "war" on NYC's mayor.
He's a consistently racist, anti-poor & violent voice in NYC politics -demanding cops NEVER be fired for violence against NYers.
He met w/Trump today.
Stop listening to police unions. pic.twitter.com/dTNBmMZKE1

The news comes months after the Federal Bureau of Investigation executed search warrants on the union’s New York City offices and Mullins’ home.

“Little info has emerged since agents were seen on Oct. 5, 2021, hauling boxes of documents from Mullins’ residence in Port Washington and the union offices on Worth Street in Lower Manhattan. Federal sources have only said the raid was connected to alleged theft of SBA funds,” the NY Post reported.
A former New York City police union president who’s clashed with city officials over tweets and tactics is expected to face criminal charges connected to a raid last year on his home and union office. Officials say Ed Mullins will surrender to authorities. https://t.co/0QXirhUGWp
