It appears that agents with the FBI have detained California State Sen. Leland Yee early Wednesday morning as part of a wide ranging criminal probe into a massive corruption investigation that has already led to the arrest of two other Democratic State Senators.

This morning several Bay Area news stations reported that the popular San Francisco Democrat has been arrested on suspicion of corruption.

FBI spokeswoman Gina Swankie would not comment on the matter, but a press conference is forthcoming.

Swankie also told reporters this morning that “the FBI is executing multiple search warrants and conducting arrests in multiple locations today.”

“At this time we are not elaborating due to the need for agent safety,” Swankie said.
