Air Force Col. Timothy Milbrath told ABC News that the accusations again him and his firm “are not correct.”

The FBI has already conducted interviews and seized documents.

“The investigation centers on a project set up under a controversial U.S. immigration program known as EB-5 which allows foreign investors to obtain visas, and eventually Green Cards, if they invest at least $500,000 in projects that will create American jobs,” ABC News wrote.

Videos used to attract foreign investors also boasted of Milbrath’s ties to the White House.
