Probe looking into whether committee misspent funds and top donors gave money in exchange for access to the administration

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.

And to think Democrats aren't even majority in the House yet.

This is textbook pay-to-play that Trump accused others of during the 2016 campaign.

Trump Inauguration Spending Under Criminal Investigation by Federal Prosecutors - WSJ

Does Trump do anything without breaking the law or without doing things that give reasonable observers reason to think he broke the law?

Does the man at least pee in a restroom or somewhere/-how that doesn't call into question whether he indecently exposed himself or do whatever unlawful thing one can when peeing?
