New trouble for US President Donald Trump: The prosecutor’s office in New York apparently checks whether everything went right at the inauguration. She suspects that donors could have bought political concessions.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the US Attorney’s office is investigating whether the committee responsible for the inauguration of US President Donald Trump has misused funds for donations. The newspaper reported on Thursday that the investigation was conducted by the Procuratorate in Manhattan.
It was examined whether some donors had given their money in exchange for political concessions, influence on government posts or access to the new government. According to the newspaper, the investigations were triggered by the investigation of Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen . He was sentenced to three years in prison on Wednesday.
The Procuratorate in Manhattan declined to comment, a statement of the Presidential Office was initially not available. Trump was sworn in January 2017. The president and his campaign team are already facing several investigations.
