Posted on 12/13/2018 2:04:40 PM PST by Mariner
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether President Trumps 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. attorneys office, which is in its early stages, also is examining whether some of the committees 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.

They'll never, ever stop.
You don't say. The Clinton Foundation, maybe noone's heard of it.
We don’t care about the $145,000,000 “contribution” to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation by the Uranium One Russians because shut up.
They just keep trying. So far, everything they have thrown at the wall hasn’t stuck. This probably won’t either. But, they keep hoping. Or hopping, depends on their mental framework.
Projection. Buying influence with donations? That sounds like somebody we know, and it aint Trump.
No one! Those darned oooos stick together, and I’ve already been shamed by the spelling cops.
Actually, all the Democrat Party/Left is doing is trying to demonstrate to their irrational and emotionally charged wacko base that they'll never stop trying to remove Trump, no matter how many times they fall flat on their ugly mugs.
The DOJ is not in our hands. It is in Deep State hands. This will prove fatal to saving America.
Trump can fire that US Attorney.
Let the chips fall where they may.
My post here is a duplicate.
Another F-up by Sessions, probably on purpose.
They dumped the Obama stooge Preet Bharara and picked up this freak Leftist who is probably worse then Bharara.
He's going to spend his entire time running lawfare with leaks games against Trump and making up "crimes" out of whole cloth.
Same would have happened to Ross Perot.
We have a lifelong professional ruling class that cannot be removed with out violence.
And of course, the Clintons never, ever, did anything like this.
They really want their civil war.
And they just may get it.
Guess now we know why Clinton fired ALL the US Attorneys on Day One.
And actually reading this version of his bio it may be that he looked OK to Trump initially; I read other bios of him that did not put him in this light.
Regardless, the SDNY is coattailing on Mueller’s scam, trying to take up stuff that he can’t foist on Whitaker.
Which between Whitaker and Barr this crap should all come to an end.
meanwhile just up the road in Chappaqua
From your link...
“At the time, the spokesman, Glen Caplin, cited reports that Mr. Trump had personally interviewed Mr. Berman as part of the selection process. Mr. Caplin called those reports deeply disturbing because of conflicts of interest inherent in Mr. Bermans potential jurisdiction on matters that could affect the president personally.
For state of the art Pay For Play schemes, look further
than the Clintons, Obama, and the Democrat Part.
