Mullins was already under scrutiny for posting the arrest report of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s 25-year-old daughter, Chiara, online after she was taken into custody during a June 2020 demonstration in response to the death of George Floyd.

He also came under fire for calling a city official and city council member derogatory names. The case related to the posting of the arrest report was slated to go trial last month but was postponed when Mullinslawyer experienced a medical emergency.

The trial is set to resume Oct. 27, according to the Post.

Mullins, leader of the union representing 11,000 NYPD members, has been a frequent, vocal critic of de Blasio’s administration and penned a piece for MailOnline over the summer as the mayor’s term nears its end.
