Federal prosecutors in NY issued a subpoena Monday for financial and other records to the Trump Inaugural Committee. The Journal reported that Barrack was not mentioned in the subpoena received by the committee Monday.

Federal prosecutors have sent a subpoena to the inauguration committee for President Donald Trump for financial records and other information, according to a report from the New York Times.

The subpoena lists only two specific names: Imaad Zuberi and his investment firm, Avenue Ventures LLC. This was twice the amount raised by any previous inauguration committee. For what it's worth, Imaad, as always, gave only his own money from his own resources.

But the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office is one of the most powerful offices in the country and has already opened other investigations that are directly connected to Trump. "If, in fact, he is named in this subpoena, never mind somehow named alone, he is bewildered why".

In December, the Wall Street Journal reported that federal prosecutors were investigating whether the inaugural committee misspent some of the record $107 million it had raised from donors.

Contributions were made by a wide array of corporate interests and wealthy Trump supporters, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission.

However, in 2017, after Trump's election, he changed his political stance and told his friends that he needed to act quickly in order to balance out his political connections to maintain access and thus donated more than $1.1 million to committees associated with Trump and the Republican Party in three months following the election in 2016. Barrack isn't named in the subpoena.

Prosecutors have requested a variety of documents related to who funded the committee, how it spent that money, and whether donors received inappropriate kickbacks.

Federal prosecutors in NY issued a subpoena, as CBS News has confirmed, looking for information on donors and benefits they allegedly received in exchange for donations.

The subpoena appears to escalate SDNY's ongoing investigation into crimes committed by Trump's inauguration committee, said CNN.

And they showed that the investigations surrounding Trump, once centred on potential ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election, have spread far beyond the special counsel's office to include virtually all aspects of his adult life: his business, his campaign, his inauguration and his presidency.

At Manafort's trial in Virginia in August, Gates testified that it was "possible" that he stole money from the inaugural committee by submitting false expense reports for his work. Winston Wolkoff was sacked as an adviser to the first lady, Melania Trump, in early 2018, after the committee released its financial disclosures showing that entities controlled by Winston Wolkoff were paid $26 million.

Zuberi's support for Trump marked a swift reversal for a financier who had been a major Democratic giver. Among a series of Democratic contributions in 2016, Zuberi delivered $615,000 to Hillary Clinton's joint fundraising committee, Hillary Victory Fund and reportedly contributed between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
