SIMSBURY/WEATOGUE, Conn. (WTNH) — ABC News has confirmed FBI agents stopped by several locations in Connecticut associated with Robert Hyde, Congressional candidate and known Trump donor who claimed to have conducted physical surveillance of Marie Yovanovitch when she was U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine.
The FBI visited Hyde’s Simsbury home and his Avon business office Thursday.
The Republican candidate for Congress in the 5th district is also known to both Simsbury and Avon police.
News 8 obtained nearly a dozen police reports dating back to 2008 involving Hyde. One police report chronicles and incident when Hyde asked police to come to his home so he could hand over weapons and ammunition.
The seizure was related to a protective order issued by a Washington, D.C., Superior Court judge. Published reports say a Republican consultant claimed Hyde stalked her and intimidated her family.
