When does it end? Get the hint... Trump won! Stop spending endless amounts of our tax money on worthless investigations that go nowhere! How about focusing on all of the corruption that has and is taking place.

It seems that investigations that never once batted an eye or gave a thought to what took place within the Clinton Foundation just can't seem to give up when it comes to the Trump Camp.

Trump Inaugural Committee Is Subpoenaed for Documents

Now Manhattan federal prosecutors are after not only donors but how spending was done for 2017 inauguration festivities. Yet another Trump criminal investigation.


President Trump’s inaugural committee on Monday received a subpoena for documents from the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office, which last year opened a criminal investigation into how the fund raised and spent more than $100 million on 2017 inauguration festivities, according to people familiar with the matter. The subpoena requests documents related to the committee’s donors and spending, according to a copy viewed by The Wall Street Journal, including communications about payments made directly by donors to vendors—which would flout disclosure rules. Federal prosecutors are also seeking documents related to a Los Angeles financier who gave $900,000 to the committee through his private-equity firm and once registered as a foreign agent working on behalf of the Sri Lankan government.


This stems from the Cohen investigation but the subpoenas house quite a range of inquiries.


The subpoena doesn’t mention Thomas Barrack Jr., a real-estate developer and longtime friend of Mr. Trump who led the inaugural committee, according to the copy viewed by the Journal. There is no sign Mr. Barrack is under investigation.

The subpoena broadly asks for all documents related to the committee’s donors and vendors, including documents related to the Federal Election Commission filings in which the committee disclosed its donations. It also seeks records related to any “benefits” such as tickets, photo opportunities or receptions that donors received in exchange for their contributions.

The subpoena requests documents related to communications with Imaad Zuberi, a Los Angeles-based financier, and Avenue Ventures LLC, which is described on Mr. Zuberi’s LinkedIn page as a private-equity and venture-capital firm, of which he is vice chairman. Mr. Zuberi in December 2016 donated $900,000 to the Trump inaugural committee through Avenue Ventures, according to FEC records.


I'm confused. If they're after how the money was spent, why wouldn't they go after the guy who lead it. Maybe I missed something.

Hey, they called it, though. "They" did say that they would bury Trump under a mountain of investigations simply because they can't stand that Trump won. This is some serious backlash for Hillary losing. Or maybe it's just that Trump isn't one of them. That's got to be it. Guess they hate being called out for the crooks they are.

So Trump made a record amount of money here. WAY more than anyone else ever. Then that money was spent. Now we need to know exactly what it was spent on to make sure there were no cahoots with those damn foreigners. I'm sure they mean Russia.


The inaugural committee has publicly identified vendors accounting for $61 million of the $103 million it spent, and it hasn’t provided details on those expenses, according to tax filings. As a nonprofit organization, the fund is only required to make public its top five vendors. The committee raised more than double what Mr. Obama’s first inaugural fund reported raising in 2009, the previous record. Mr. Trump’s funds came largely from wealthy donors and corporations who gave $1 million or more—including casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, AT&T Inc. and Boeing Co. , according to FEC filings. There is no sign that those three donors are under investigation. The Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office investigation partly arose out of materials seized in the April raids of Mr. Cohen’s home, office and hotel room, in which Federal Bureau of Investigation agents obtained a recorded conversation between Mr. Cohen and Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former adviser to Melania Trump who worked on the inaugural events. In the recording, Ms. Wolkoff—an adviser to the inaugural whose firm was the top-paid vendor—expressed concern about how the inaugural committee was spending money, according to a person familiar with the Cohen investigation. The Journal couldn’t determine when the conversation between Mr. Cohen and Ms. Wolkoff took place, or why it was recorded. The recording is now in the hands of federal prosecutors in Manhattan, a person familiar with the matter said.


So here we are, yet once again.

Personally, I think they're going to just keep digging until they find 'something', anything at all that they can use against this presidency. I wish they would have paid this much attention to the last 3 presidents.

If this is a witch hunt, Muller found Hogwarts. The GOP, had no problem investigating Clinton/Whitewater for over 7 years, with only 1 indictment, think about that! Benghazi????


Muller, over 200 criminal counts. Over 37 people/businesses indicted. 4 going to or have been in prison. That is not a witch hunt. It doesn't matter, what the indictments were, they were and are criminals.

Which one of those crimes has to do with the scope of the investigation; collusion with a foreign government to sway the 2016 elections?

Why care?

He cannot be arrested whilst in office and to my knowledge no President in the history of the united states of America has been convicted of a crime.

I think there was a speeding ticket once.

So relax, it's all just smoke and mirrors anyways since all politicians are guilty of being greasy slimeballs whether they are 'career' or not.

So, I take it the Dems have officially lost hope that Muller is going to find something impeachable? Because first Maxine Waters wants to try to find some way to tie Trump to the Deuche Bank money laundering, and now this. The signs definitely point that way.

Its just a never ending parade of nonsense, the need to keep the outrage and hope of impeachment alive.

What I really dont understand is how those attacking Trump, including the media can keep getting away with it?
Surely the perpetually outraged and other sufferers of TDS would take a look back every now and then and realise the thing they were outraged about a year ago, a month ago or even a week ago has all been cowfeaces, all of it.

I guess its because of the layering, they have nothing so they report some initial charge/accusation and give the impression its proof of something and discuss all the implications of it which always ends up some version of "Orange man bad".
When its exhausted or to keep discussing it would require leaving the narrative they find a new outrage or level a new charge. Rinse and repeat ad infinitum

Its getting real old real fast

Yeah Trumps First action would be having his inauguration be shady. I'm sure Cohen, if he was involved in it, was figuring out a way to skim money for himself like has been reported previously.

I don't see Trump getting in trouble with this, he knew he was under the microscope ever since he was informed that Trump Tower, where the transition team was, had been under surveillance. He was told that by Adm Mike Rogers.

Cohen seemingly recorded everyone without their knowledge, wtf?

Trump is innocent unless proven guilty, but his track record is not great.

He is not the self confessed entrepreneur he pretends to be, his daddy gave him moolah to finance his career, then he turned to daddy to bail him out-google it.

But it's always fake news, just like the Catholics deemed the heliocentric system 'fake news.' Make up your own mind, but IMO i would trust a Japanese whaler before i'd trust him.

I have a prediction to make:

The day that they kick Trump out of office is the day that they tell the majority of the people in the US that their votes don't mean squat and they're going to do whatever the damn hell they want and no one can do a cotton picking thing about it.... Is the very same day there will be blood in the streets, politicians being strung up, butchered and their possessions burned to the ground, burning government memorials, Riots in the streets, total chaos and anarchy.

That's my guess. They'll have one hell of a fight on their hands. If they ever wanted to break the country, they're doing a great job getting there.

Trump promised to drain the swamp.

Mueller is delivering.

And like someone mentioned before. You are complaining that this is a witch hunt against Trump. Yet Republicans investigated Clinton numerous times. And she didn't go to jail. Granted she's coated in Legal Teflon. However Republicans had the chance to put her away. And they just dropped the ball.

It makes me wonder how much lower the democrats will sink if they lose in 2020 ? What will they do..?.... call for all out revolution in the streets ? Bloodshed and killings of anyone opposing them. They have so far shown a complete contempt for the rule of law, and nothing but obstruction at every turn, even issues they once championed.

Soros comes to mind..... as an active sponsor of terrorism directed towards the United States.

we have a similar situation on the UK - we had a referendum on the EU and we voted to leave.

Will the Remainers respect that vote? No they will not - still whining on about having a second referendum. I wish people would just accept what living in a democracy means and just got on with life. Ho, hum.

I’m a remainer.

Have you seen or read me whine here?

Can you imagine the army of "assistants" combing the internet for every tiny detail of every person in office at the mo. I can't wait til they find someone's 3rd-grade photo of them wearing an Afro wig on Halloween.
