A federal grand jury has indicted the chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party and a major Republican campaign donor on conspiracy and bribery charges for their attempts to influence N.C. Insurance commissioner Mike Causey.

The indictment accuses GOP chair Robin Hayes, a former congressman, of trying to funnel bribe money to the re-election campaign of Causey. Hayes is also charged with three counts of making false statements to the FBI. Hayes had announced Monday that he wouldn’t seek another term as NC GOP chairman, a decision he attributed to health concerns.

The indictment comes amid an investigation into a political donor, Greg Lindberg, by U.S. Attorney R. Andrew Murray, an appointee of Republican President Donald Trump who oversees federal trials in Charlotte and the rest of Western North Carolina.
