Preet Brings the Heat to De Blasio

Via the New York Post (HT Empire Report):

Things are starting to get real for Mayor de Blasio.

First the mayor was questioned for nearly two hours by Manhattan prosecutors over his fund-raising for state Senate elections — and now Hizzoner has agreed to talk to the feds because he wants to convince them to stop investigating him for possible corruption at City Hall, it was reported Friday.

Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara set up the meeting with de Blasio, which will be held in the next two weeks without the protection of immunity, according to WNBC/Channel 4.

Sources told the station that the mayor is convinced he can prove to investigators that he has not traded government favors for political donations during his time in office.

The mayor ultimately believes he can sway them to drop their probe, the sources added.
