California Lawmaker Says FBI Tried to Get Him to Rat Out Two Top Democrats

A California lawmaker says the FBI raided his office because he refused to rat out two of the state’s top Democrats, NBC News reports.

State Sen. Ronald Calderon, D-Montebello, filed a federal complaint, saying agents asked him to “sting” Sen. Darrell Steinberg, leader of the state Senate’s Democratic majority and Sen. Kevin de Leon.

Calderon also is asking for a judge to hold federal investigators in contempt for leaking details of the investigation. He’s accused of accepting more than $60,000 from undercover agents in exchange for supporting legislation, NBC reported.

During a June 2012 meeting with an undercover agent, Steinberg allegedly said, “I told you man, anything you can do, any help you could do for my kids is, you know – that’s diamonds for me. That’s diamonds.”
