Prosecutors subpoena Trump inaugural committee for documents

The inaugural committee´s activities has previously been mentioned in court by Rick Gates, who served as a deputy chairman of the inaugural committee and testified it was possible he may have stolen money from the committee through fake expense reports.

Zuberi is as baffled as the public to learn that NY federal prosecutors are seeking information about him, according to his spokesman.

The document indicates that prosecutors are investigating crimes related to conspiracy to defraud the United States, mail fraud, false statements, wire fraud and money laundering.

"It's well known that after supporting President Obama and Hillary Clinton, that Imaad gave generously and directly to the Trump inaugural". Mueller's probe has been underway for nearly two years and has thus far failed to uncover evidence of 'Russian collusion.' Mueller has, however, charged six Trump associates with an array of unrelated process crimes.

Several wealthy Russians and Ukrainians attended the inauguration in January 2017, according to news reports, fueling questions about how they gained access and the extent of foreign money that may have flowed into the festivities.

The conversations reported by the Beast suggested Zuberi may have sought to use his substantial inaugural donations as an overture to securing future business with the Trump administration.

Zuberi is an American citizen, but he has apparent connections to foreign governments.

Before he became one of Trump's biggest financial supporters, Zuberi was a major Democratic donor and bundler. The company donated $900,000 to the inaugural committee, records show.

Monday's subpoena also seeks "communications about payments made directly by donors to vendors - which would flout disclosure rules", the Journal reported.

In the 2000s he appears to have established himself in Los Angeles as a venture capitalist.

In 2014, Mr Zuberi registered as a lobbyist for Sri Lanka. The notion, though, that it has nothing to do with the White House ... it has something to do with the person who sits in the Oval Office, in that President Trump, it was his inauguration, it was his campaign that there are so many investigations and questions with now.

"Now anybody who wasn't in, they need to find a way in", an unnamed donor said at the time. According to the Washington Post, it's not clear if Mueller is still pursuing the inauguration angle or if the subpoena indicates he referred the matter to prosecutors in Manhattan.
