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.
Heard before there were issues/queries/ethical problems with this Committee

Just another big problem for Trump.
Donald he Circle is closing. While this may or may not bear fruit, other investigations will bear more Felonies

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office is investigating how several billionaires tied to Russia were given access to President Trump’s exclusive, invitation-only inauguration parties, ABC News reported Thursday.

The outlet obtained guest lists to festivities, many including businessmen who got wealthy after the fall of the Soviet Union. Three sources told ABC News the lists are now of interest to federal prosecutors.

The left is going to investigate everything Trump has ever done, is doing or ever will do. Thats what the resistance is all about. Wake me when you find something and maybe I will care.

I think even a human with subpar intelligence could see that trump’s goose is cooked. I really don’t understand anyone still defending trump at this point in time, unless they are just bat**** crazy.

"The Left" isn't investigating anything.

Super-duper glad I could set you straight on that.

No, no need to thank me.

Looks like Trump miscalculated thinking the U.S. is more corrupt than it really is and that politicians get away with everything. Apparently he commits crime in everything he does.

Thats what you guys have been saying for two years. Trump will not be impeached. Trump will not be charged. And this sort of liberal lunacy will ensure he will be in office until 2025.

As mentioned. This has been in the news for many months. It flew under most peoples radar due to much larger problems that Trump was facing, from Cohen, Mantafort (for a time), Flynn and Gates. Oh yes, almost most forgot, Mueller and his Corrupted Band of Democrats.

Now if you were not aware of this gem, then perhaps varying your news into other Orgs, aside from The Conservative Treehouse, and look for accurate info from sites with different slants, that have broken new stories that bore fruit, in many way, more issues for Trump

That sites accuracy well if it had a family tree, it would be a stick

IIRC WSJ is owned by Robert Murdoch, who also own FOX News

You mean the inaugural committee broke the law & they still had that tiny crowd?

Well, that's just all messed up now.

Big picture:

This man surrounded himself with criminal sleaze. And then he brought them into his government.

Specific picture:

The inauguration committee and missing and hidden money stunk from day one. I truly mean, day one - as on 20 JAN 2017. The revenue vs expenditures never added-up.

Projection. That's what Republicans do, so you naturally assume that must be what's going on here.

When you're a burglar, you see start to see everybody as a potential home robber.

Are you truly going to argue that Russian billionaires donating money to Trump’s inauguration is nothing to be concerned with? Aren’t you the people that were howling at the moon claiming foreigners giving money to the Clinton Foundation was corrupt?

Yes, the outer walls have fallen, and the last one is the inner circle. And it is clear Mueller has broached that wall in ways that will, if there is a report it will be worse than Watergate.

One could see Congress if the report is partially public, passing new laws that start to clarify/legislate the scum pond of US politics. All to save their receptive asses as they love being elected.

I say scum pond, but it is a thick scum. That scum has infected the Body Politic with a wide political divide and no civil discussion.

The repercussions from Trumps Administration is mainly negative and change the US for decades to come.
He did not originate it, but as they say Trump is not only a symptom, but he willingly the charge
