Did Hoffa and other top Teamster officials rig the bidding on contracts with Teamster benefit funds and take improper gifts and payoffs? Corruption investigators are in federal court and asking for subpoena power to find out the answer.

The corruption and racketeering probe dates back to 2016, but it may be picking up steam. For the first time, corruption investigators are in court asking to subpoena bank records, including payment records to Hoffa and Ken Hall.

Attorneys for the Independent Investigation Officers filed an application in federal court on April 30 to subpoena payment records from banks, insurance brokers and healthcare providers to Hoffa, Hall, W.C. Smith, Rome Aloise, David Laughton, Kevin Moore, Steve Mack, John Murphy, Bill Hamilton, John Coli, Jack Cipriani, Geoffrey Hoffa, Richard Leebove, Greg Tarpinian, and others.

The Independent Investigations Officer is investigating whether luxury outings by these Hoffa administration officials and consultants were a gift from Charles Bertucio, an investment firm owner and insurance broker who was paid by health insurance corporations to land business with Teamster benefit funds.
