Trump inauguration committee subpoenaed for financial documents

Federal prosecutors in New York subpoenaed President Trump’s inauguration committee on Monday — requesting documents that show donors, finances and benefits handed down during the ceremony, according to a new report.

A lawyer for the committee received the subpoena on Monday evening, The New York Times reported, citing unnamed officials familiar with the probe.

The subpoena requested records of any benefits handed out during the inauguration, including tickets and photos with the president, as well as documents that show disclosure filings, vendors, contracts and all of the committee’s donors and attendees of the event, according to the report.

Prosecutors with the Southern District of New York’s public corruption unit reached out to the inaugural committee on Monday afternoon and told them about their plan to issue the subpoena, ABC News reported.

The committee raised more than $100 million for the inauguration, about twice as much as former presidents Bush and Obama raised for their ceremonies, ABC reported.
