3 affidavits in biker case attest to FBI probe of prosecutor
WACO, Texas (AP) — A retired Texas police officer says in an affidavit that the FBI is investigating McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna for alleged public corruption.
The affidavit was filed Tuesday by Jorge Salinas. He’s among the more than 150 bikers indicted on criminal conspiracy charges following a May 2015 shooting in Waco that left nine dead. It’s the third affidavit signed by former law enforcement officials who say FBI agents interviewed them about Reyna allegedly helping campaign donors avoid legal trouble.
The affidavits were filed in support of Salinas’ motion to compel the prosecutor’s office to share evidence and force Reyna to testify.
Reyna says he’s not aware of any FBI investigation of him and that the allegations made in Tuesday’s affidavit aren’t true.
FBI spokeswoman Rosanne Hughes says the agency cannot confirm the existence of an investigation.
