UT: Grand Jury Subpoenas Witness In Investigation Of Rep. Hunter's Use Of Campaign Funds

A federal grand jury in San Diego has issued a subpoena related to an investigation into Rep. Duncan Hunter's (R-Alpine) use of campaign funds.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that a witness has been ordered to produce documents and receipts from a business in which Hunter's campaign spent thousands of dollars. The development is an indication that the Justice Department investigation into Hunter's use of campaign funds for personal use is moving forward.
Morgan Cook, a watchdog reporter for The San Diego Union-Tribune, first reported the Federal Election Commission was looking into Hunter's use of campaign funds to purchase video games in April 2016. Hunter has since reimbursed his campaign more than $60,000.
Cook joins Midday Edition Thursday with new details on the investigation.
