Federal Prosecutors Reportedly Subpoena Trump Inaugural Committee

"We have just received a subpoena for documents".

ABC News reported Monday that prosecutors in the Southern District of New York's political corruption section have subpoenaed documents from Trump's inaugural committee, which raised a record-breaking $107 million. The subpoena was issued by the US attorney's office which required the inauguration committee to hand in the documents related to the ceremony held January 20, 2017.

The inaugural committee disclosed a list of its donors to the FEC, and the prosecutors are examining whether that list is complete and accurate, the person said. But many others gave considerably more. He is not named in the subpoena.

When asked whether there was any foreign connection to Zuberi's donation, Rabinowitz said: "There is no connection of any other individual or entity, and for sure not a foreign one. He gave his own money".

The Wall Street Journal reported past year that federal prosecutors are investigating whether inaugural committee donors made contributions in exchange for political favors.

Last year, Samuel Patten, a longtime Washington operative, admitted that he helped a Russian-Ukrainian man named Konstantin Kilimnik and another foreigner illegally obtain four tickets to Trump's inauguration.

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

Seal Poop Sample Contained a Surprise
Although it's remarkable the USB stick survived the ordeal, it's nevertheless a bad sign for the seals and their environment. As Hupman tells NIWA: "The more we can find out about these creatures, the more we can ensure they are looked after".

The intention, first reported by ABC News, suggests that beyond special counsel Robert Mueller there is continued scrutiny of people connected to President Donald Trump.

The subpoena seeks a wide range of documents, including information on any donations "made by or on behalf of foreign nationals".

A spokeswoman says the committee intends to cooperate with the inquiry. Mueller's team has been expected to wind down its investigation soon; this new inquiry could mean continuing headaches for the president and fodder for his political opponents.

Gates has testified it's possible he submitted false expense reports to the inaugural committee.

Although campaign finance laws restrict the size of campaign contributions, inaugurations can accept unlimited donations, including from corporations. The fundraising figure was more than twice as much as that for former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush.

He said the inauguration did not cost $100 million, so investigators are focused on the sources for the donations and what became of the funds.

Zuberi was previously a top fundraiser for Democrats. On that same day, a Qatari delegation reportedly visited the building to meet with Flynn and campaign chairman Stephen K. Bannon. Though he wasn't in the meetings with Trump officials, Zuberi also met with the Qataris at Trump Tower, and then met with the Qatari foreign minister the following day.
