It states the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is in the beginning stages of probing whether the committee’s most prominent donors made sizable contributions “in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions.”

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether President Trump’s 2017 inaugural committee misspent some of the record $107 million it raised from donations, people familiar with the matter said.
The criminal probe by the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office, which is in its early stages, also is examining whether some of the committee’s top donors gave money in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions, some of the people said.
Giving money in exchange for political favors could run afoul of federal corruption laws. Diverting funds from the organization, which was registered as a nonprofit, could also violate federal law.
The investigation represents another potential legal threat to people who are or were in Mr. Trump’s orbit. Their business dealings and activities during and since the campaign have led to a number of indictments and guilty pleas. Many of the president’s biggest campaign backers were involved in the inaugural fund. More
They can’t get the president through Robert Mueller, so they’re trying another fishing expedition in the form of an investigation without a crime just in an attempt to throw tar on the administration.
Donald Trump is the most investigated man on the planet, and they still don’t have anything… Meanwhile, Hillary is sitting at home purring contentedly over the fact that neither the DOJ or FBI has the slightest interest in her.
Is it time to take the gloves off and go after every Democrat and check their finances with a microscope beginning with Obama and the Clinton Crime Family?Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
