RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Federal prosecutors have sought more documents from the state Insurance Department about an industry magnate who's also donated lots of money recently to North Carolina political causes.
A department spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday it received the Jan. 23 federal grand jury subpoena in a matter involving Greg E. Lindberg. The subpoena seeks more recent documents that comply with a similar subpoena last September for information since 2014 about Lindberg, his Durham investment firm Eli Global, and several associated insurance companies.
Federal authorities have repeatedly declined to comment on the investigation. Lindberg also hasn't responded to requests for comment about the probe or his campaign donations. Lindberg has given more than $5 million to North Carolina candidate and party committees and independent expenditure groups.
WRAL-TV first reported on the new subpoena's existence.
