The Federal Bureau of Investigation along with numerous law enforcement agencies including the Texas Rangers and the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office has now arrested a Democratic State District Judge in Texas in what's being described as a culmination of several month-long investigations into the Democratic Party's elite.
93rd State District Judge Rodolfo "Rudy" Delgado has been arrested as per a widespread investigation into the Democratic Party, and his offices in Hidalgo County.

Local media outlet<a href="http://www.themonitor.com/news/local/article_ec58f6b4-089a-11e8-8700-abbb551ae59f.html"> The Monitor </a>reported that "dozens of FBI Special Agents descended upon the Judge's offices," included the 93rd State District Court in a scene that locals claim looks as if it were the climax to a mobster movie.
Texas Rangers and Hidalgo County Sheriff's Deputies can be seen alongside the Federal Bureau of Investigation removing trash bags full of evidence and plastic bins from both Delgado's home and the Judge's office.
Local media says that Delgado's office at the Hidalgo County Courthouse will require further warrants to seize any evidence.

FBI spokeswoman Michelle Lee confirmed agents were conducting law enforcement activity at the courthouse and said one person had been arrested.
"We are only confirming that an arrest has been made and not releasing additional details," Lee said.
Al Alvarez, who said he will be representing Delgado as his attorney in the case says the Judge had been arrested.
"Well, I think that's pretty obvious," Alvarez said when asked if the Judge had been taken into custody.

Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra said further details about the case will be released on Monday, presumably after a warrant has been served at the courthouse to seize evidence in the criminal conspiracy.

The Texas Department of Public Safety has also confirmed they are assisting the FBI in the case, according to<a href="http://valleycentral.com/news/local/sheriff-fbi-conducting-law-enforcement-activity-at-hidalgo-county-courthouse"> CBS 4</a>.
<a href="http://m.brownsvilleherald.com/news/local/fbi-not-releasing-details-about-investigation-charges-against-delgado/article_24806146-0894-11e8-ac0e-eb291f838b35.html?mode=jqm">The Brownsville Herald </a>says that for months, rumors of a state judge facing a federal indictment had swirled around the courthouse's hallways and throughout the county.
Currently, Delgado is running for a place on the 13th Court of Appeals, and multiple sources close to the investigation said the judge was detained at the Falfurrias checkpoint while on his way to a campaign event outside the Rio Grande Valley.
Back in February of 2017, Delgado's son, former Hidalgo County Assistant District Attorney Ricco Diaman Delgado, was found dead in an Austin creek.
Before his death, the Judge's son had several run-ins with law enforcement as well, in what appears to be a crime family tied to Mafia dealings across Texas.
Although little has been confirmed, according to<a href="http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2018/02/03/feds-arrest-democrat-texas-state-judge-near-texas-border/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social"> Breitbart Texas</a>, it appears as of Monday we will know the full spectrum of charges laid out against the Democratic Party of Texas' Judge Rodolfo "Rudy" Delgado.
