New York Prosecutors to Subpoena Trump Inauguration Committee for Documents

Washington,DC. Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States Friday- ushering in a new political era that

According to the subpoena, investigators want more information on bank accounts related to the inauguration ceremony, donors, foreign contributions, vendors and contractors, USA media reported on Tuesday.

The investigation is yet another legal threat surrounding the president as he prepares for the State of the Union address on Tuesday.

The 2017 Donald Trump inaugural committee is still under scrutiny from the USA attorney's office in the Southern District of NY, but this time investigators are asking for records on a specific donor to the committee, according to a report from ABC News.

The New York Times reported late past year that federal prosecutors were examining whether anyone from Qatar, Saudi Arabia or other Middle Eastern countries made illegal payments to the committee and a pro-Trump super political action committee.

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.

She said the committee received the subpoena late Monday and was reviewing it.

Federal prosecutors have issued a subpoena seeking documents from Donald Trump's inaugural committee, furthering a federal inquiry into a fund that has faced mounting scrutiny into how it raised and spent its money.

He said: "Power is evaporating from Maduro's hands with the passing of the hours". Russia, China, and Iran also support Maduro, as does Turkey.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said that the inaugural committee's operations did not involve President Trump himself.

The Wall Street Journal revealed in December 2018 that federal investigators were investigating whether or not the inaugural committee used collected funds for corrupt purposes.

But reports indicate that the probe is focusing on the committee's relationship with Los Angeles-based venture capitalist Imaad Zuberi.

Tom Barrack Jr, a real-estate developer and close friend of the president who served as chairman of the inaugural committee, is not named in the documents.

Federal prosecutors also want information about donations made directly to vendors and communications discussing that possibility.

Zuberi has given more than $1.1 million to Trump-backed organizations and has accompanied the foreign minister of Qatar during meetings with Trump officials. Zuberi, who had raised money for President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, was reportedly trying to develop a relationship with Trump.

In August, prosecutors in Washington charged lobbyist Sam Patten, who would plead guilty to acting as an unregistered federal agent for a Ukrainian political party.
