The FBI is investigating a potential corruption scandal involving the NYPD and two businessmen with close relationships to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The probe involves gifts and foreign trips that the businessmen may have given in exchange for favors, the New York Post reports.

The businessmen – Jona Rechnitz and Jeremy Reichberg – are suspected of paying for airfare, hotel bills and gifts for some NYPD officials.

The trips were to places such as Israel, London, Las Vegas, Rome and the Caribbean. 

“A number of my members have been interviewed by federal investigators,” Captains Endowment Association President Roy Richter said. “All of them fully cooperated and were told they were not the targets or subject of the investigation.’’

Rechnitz denied wrongdoing.

Cherry charges between $250 and $1,000 to administer a polygraph test, which takes between 90 and 120 minutes.
