Report: Prosecutors Subpoena Trump Inaugural Committee

by Axios | Updated on 2.5.19

Federal prosecutors in New York have ordered President Trump’s inaugural committee to turn over documents relating to its donors, finances and event attendees, the New York Times reports, citing sources with knowledge of the investigation.

Details: The news was first reported by ABC News on Monday evening, which noted that specific details of the request remain unclear, and that the investigation — which comes as many observers have speculated that special counsel Robert Mueller is nearing to his Russia probe — is zooming in on Trump's political fundraising both before and after his 2016 presidential election.

Prosecutors in New York’s Southern District are reportedly interested in whether foreign nationals funneled donations into the committee, which would be illegal under law.

  • A spokesman for the inaugural committee, a nonprofit in charged of organizing festivities surrounding the wearing-in ceremony, told ABC News: "We have just received a subpoena for documents. While we are still reviewing the subpoena, it is our intention to cooperate with the inquiry."
  • A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan declined to comment.

Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen "has been extensively interviewed by prosecutors in the Southern District office," per ABC News.

    Lock him up and his pesky kids. Then lock up the entire Republican Regime as accomplices to these crimes. Republicans have aided and assisted in stalling and covering up.

    Trump continues to break records. He may be first president with more felonies than any other president in history.

    So the Russia hoax pimp Mueller has subpoenaed the inaugural committee? Hillary Clinton has actually done everything President Trump has been accused of and far far far more. With literally mountains of clear cut evidence available for examination. And yet not a peep from the left-wing media? Fire Mueller and shut down the Russia hoax probe. This circus has been allowed to go on long enough.

    And now, the money comes in to play. Michael Cohen laid it all out for Mueller. He’s got all he needs to take Trump down. If you think differently, you’re brainwashed or just plain stupid. Don’t ever cross your own attorney, especially, one with hidden recordings. I hope Trump gets life in prison and his whole family loses everything they have screwed everyone to get. They deserve it.

    I’m so looking forward to hearing what really happened and what exactly was Trump illegally involved in.. I want to hear it all from what conspired with Putin to the money laundering on different projects!!! I think it’s big!! So, yes, release a full report from Mueller. The American people have a right to know.

    Does this latest subpoena mean that every single aspect of Donald Trump's life is now under legal scrutiny?

    The sad thing is that so many people think all Republicans or Conservatives for that matter hide behind Trump which is not the case. If a case is brought forward it should be like any other case before it, with good intentions of spelling out the facts and proving that Trump is innocent until proven guilty, not guilty until proven innocent. People around a President will do almost anything to get their boss into office and it may not even be Trump himself. I’m not defending Trump but any means but before the law, he is innocent until proven guilty. I also believe that something should be done to look into the Clinton Foundation, the Clintons, and the Obama Administrations for their back door deals and extreme coverups. I also believe that the Supreme Court should hear cases of unconstitutional seizure of power by the Executive through the President in regards to their excessive Executive Orders and Actions by both the Obama and Trump Administrations.

    This may have no actual implications for Trump himself, but is certainly another sign of the corruption and self-dealing surrounding him. If foreign governments and big business spent all this money to influence Trump, then how can anybody believe that he represents the middle class and poor in America? He's already been bought.
