The FBI raided the home of Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) on Wednesday as part of a federal investigation into Azerbaijan and unnamed American businessmen, according to multiple media reports.

ABC and CBS reported Thursday that the raid was related to a federal grand jury investigation. It came a day after FBI agents were seen descending on Cuellar’s home in Laredo, Texas. The Monitor, a local media outlet, said agents were seen taking belongings and other items from his home and the FBI were also seen in a separate building belonging to Cuellar, his campaign office and other companies.

The FBI told the Texas Tribune it could not comment on the basis of the investigation or raid, but called it “court-authorized law enforcement activity.” It is not known if anyone was home at the time.

Cuellar, who has served in Congress since 2005, said he would cooperate with “any investigation”, and his office said the congressman was “committed to ensuring that justice and the law are upheld”.

He is a powerful moderate Democrat and sits on the House Appropriations Committee. He has also served as co-chairman of the Azerbaijan Congressional Caucus in recent years, ABC News reported.

Cuellar is seeking re-election this year and will run in a primary on March 1.
