A federal indictment unsealed Wednesday details the laundry list of charges brought against State Senator Leland Yee and 25 others, all arrested that morning in FBI sweeps in the Bay Area and in Sacramento.

Federal agents also raided Yee’s Sacramento office at the State Capitol.

Most notably, Yee is charged with conspiracy to traffic in firearms without a license. Yee, according to the FBI, had a contact in weapons trafficking and agreed to facilitate a meeting between that contact and an undercover agent in exchange for a donation to his Secretary of State campaign.
