Remember the Donald Trump Presidential inauguration? Sure you do – it was the one that was the biggest of all time, way bigger than Barack Obama’s inauguration except that it wasn’t even close. That one.
Well, the committee behind that not-at-all-bigger-than-Barack-Obama’s inauguration could be a major factor in the corruption that gets Trump pegged with criminal charges.
The Southern District of New York has issued a subpoena for documents from the Trump Inaugural Committee and is accusing them of money laundering and making false statements, among many other things.
CNN’s Shimon Prokupecz posted to Twitter that on the cover of the subpoena, prosecutors say that Trump’s committee partook in “conspiracy against the US, false statements, mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, inaugural committee disclosure violations, and laws prohibiting contributions by foreign nations and contributions in the name of another person.”
ABC News also reported that the SDNY wanted documents from the inaugural committee, then further reporting revealed the document types prosecutors ordered from the committee’s lawyers.
According to the New York Times, the inaugural committee’s lawyers were ordered to present documents on “donors and event attendees; any benefits handed out, including tickets and photo opportunities with the president; federal disclosure filings; vendors; contracts,” among other things.
The corruption allegations surrounding every aspect of Donald Trump’s campaign, inauguration, presidential administration, and even family, is unprecedented in American history. Buckle up, folks. This could get rough.
