A leaked video reveals that FBI agents have raided a major Philadelphia labor union that endorsed Hillary Clinton.

The video shows federal agents loading a moving truck full of boxes seized from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).

George Spencer, a reporter for an NBC affiliate in Philadelphia, claimed he saw "many boxes removed from IBEW Union Hall were labeled 'investments,' 'payroll,' and 'taxes.'"

A large sign stating "Hillary for President" can be seen above the entrance to the building.

The national IBEW union endorsed Clinton's presidential run last June, according to their website.

The NBC affiliate reported that the FBI raids were targeted for "two rowhouses, a pub, … and the political offices of a City Councilman."

So what's the reason for the seizure? The FBI has been conducting on "ongoing investigation" into "the Philadelphia local for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers," and union leader John Dougherty's assistance in helping Mayor Jim Kenney get elected.

The Philadelphia Business Journal reported that both Dougherty and Kenney attended "a very private meeting with Secretary Clinton" in April.

"We talked with Ms. Clinton for 20 minutes about her support of Pre-Apprenticeship Programs, diversity in the workforce, and Project Labor Agreements," Dougherty said. "It was a quick but great meeting and we appreciated Secretary Clinton's time and attention to our issues."
