Prosecutors subpoena Trump’s inaugural committee, looking for ‘donations by foreign nationals’

Prosecutors subpoena Trump’s inaugural committee, looking for ‘donations by foreign nationals’

ABC News, citing an unnamed source, said prosecutors reached out to attorneys with the committee on Monday afternoon to confirm whether they would accept their request for documents.

"It is our intention to cooperate with the inquiry", she said. The notion, though, that it has nothing to do with the White House ... it has something to do with the person who sits in the Oval Office, in that President Trump, it was his inauguration, it was his campaign that there are so many investigations and questions with now.

Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie says the Federal investigation into Donald Trump's inaugural committee could be a bigger threat to the president than Robert Mueller.

The Manhattan U.S. Attorney's office-with help from the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney's office-is investigating the committee for a host of possible crimes including the use of straw donors to mask illegal foreign donations, wire fraud, election fraud and money laundering.

The committee, which disclosed raising a record-setting $107 million to celebrate his ascendance to the presidency, was subpoenaed by federal prosecutors in NY, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The subpoena requests documents related to the committee's donors and spending, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times reported.

The chairman of the committee was Thomas Barrack, a NY real estate developer who knows Trump and has worked closely with Manafort. He told the AP he was not a target of the Mueller investigation.

The subpoena issued Monday does not mention Barrack or any members of the inaugural committee by name.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders attempted to put distance between the president and an investigation into inaugural committee on Tuesday after federal prosecutors dug deeper into the organization's finances.

"If, in fact, he is named in this subpoena - never mind somehow named alone - he is bewildered why", his spokesman told TPM. The committee previously raised $107 million for Trump's inauguration. Though Zuberi continued to give to Democratic candidates during the 2018 election cycle, he gave $225,000 to Trump's joint fundraising committee Trump Victory and more than $100,000 to both the National Republican Congressional Committee and National Republican Senatorial Committee, along with his company's massive inaugural committee contribution.
