Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby indicted on federal perjury charge

Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby has been indicated by a federal grand jury on charges of perjury related to a COVID-19 financial hardship withdrawal and a false statement on a loan application.

This comes amid an ongoing federal investigation involving Mosby and her husband, Baltimore City Council President Nick Mosby, over campaign records.

In March federal prosecutors started investigating the personal business and tax records of the Mosbys. Federal officials subpoenaed the Maryland State Board of Elections seeking business and campaign finance records dating back to 2014.

Federal prosecutors subpoenaed records from Marilyn Mosby’s campaign, along with Nick and Marilyn’s business records.As part of the investigation, federal prosecutors requested tax returns, bank statements and loan documents.

The couple’s lawyer, A. Scott Bolden, issued a statement calling the investigation a “political witch hunt.”

“My clients are progressive change agents, making them unfair targets of unnecessary scrutiny by federal investigators. Nevertheless, I can assure you and the people of Baltimore, they have done nothing illegal, inappropriate or unlawful,” he said.
