Trump inaugural committee suspected of conspiracy to defraud the United States, wire fraud and money laundering, subpoena indicates

Donald Trump’s inaugural committee has received a subpoena for documents from prosecutors, who are reportedly probing the group for crimes including conspiracy to defraud the US, mail fraud, false statements and money laundering.

…It emerged the nonprofit organisation was under investigation over alleged misspending of the $107 [million] it had raised from donors.

The investigation is reportedly examining whether some of the committee’s donors gave money in exchange for policy concessions, influencing administration positions or access to the incoming administration.

Prosecutors also showed interest in whether any foreigners illegally donated to the committee. 

…The committee’s inaugural spending has been shrouded in controversy after it failed to account for as much as $42 [million] in spending.
