FBI sought Lewis and Calvert’s records in July.

Over the summer, FBI investigators “examined the personal financial records” of two members of the House Appropriations Committee, Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-CA) and Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA), as part of “ongoing probes into their earmarking activities.” Both inquiries were made on “July 24 by two agents” in a California field office. For Calvert, it “is the first signal in months that he is still under scrutiny.” (HT: TPMmuckraker.)
