The Justice Department issued a subpoena to President Trump’s inaugural committee Monday, ordering the handover of financial documents related to Trump’s 2016 presidential inauguration. The Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office requested the documents and is seeking information on whether any foreign donors received access to the Trump administration in exchange for contributions. Last month, The New York Times reported Trump’s inaugural committee received an unprecedented $107 million from private donors—at least twice the amount raised by any of his predecessors.
