NEW YORK (Reuters) - Three New York City police commanders and a business consultant were charged on Monday as part of a wide-ranging federal corruption probe that has also been examining Mayor Bill de Blasio's fundraising activities.

The arrests came two weeks after U.S. prosecutors charged Norman Seabrook, the politically influential president of the city's correction officers union, and Murray Huberfeld, a hedge fund financier, as part of the same investigation.
