MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation were sent to the home of state Senator Katrina Robinson on Tuesday, the agency confirmed.
They would not say why they were there, but did say they did not conduct a search warrant. WREG is working to gather more information.
Several months ago, agents searched Robinson’s southeast Shelby County home. Agents were also seen removing boxes from The Healthcare Institute, a vocational nursing school which Robinson founded with a $1.6 million federal grant in 2015.
Inquiries about what was going on were not returned.
WREG attempted to reach Robinson, her secretary and her attorney Tuesday. A person who answered the door at her house said she was not home, and denied that FBI agents had been to the home that day.
Robinson, a Democrat representing southeast Memphis and Shelby County, won the District 33 seat in the Tennessee State Senate in 2018.
