Second Subpoena Sent For Schock Records

Federal prosecutors handed former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock a second subpoena for financial records, texts and emails. That’s part of a grand jury probe into spending by the Peoria Republican.

The new subpoena was disclosed as prosecutor Timothy Bass appeared before U.S. District Court Judge Sue Myerscough. Bass says it's “utter nonsense” Schock hasn't fully complied with a grand jury request issued months ago.

Prosecutors also object to claims of privilege that Schock's attorneys made over some documents being reviewed by Myerscough.

Schock received a grand-jury subpoena seeking campaign and congressional records the day before he resigned his seat in March.

Mark Hubbard is a spokesman for the Washington, D.C. law firm representing Schock. He says attorneys are doing their “best to respond to a vague subpoena.”
