ffAn MSNBC discussion on a federal investigation into foreign money flowing into President Donald Trump’s 2016 inaugural committee turned upon in increasing focus on the president’s daughter, Ivanka, and her looming legal peril.
According to MSNBC legal contributor Katie Phang, investigators are looking closely at the first daughter’s involvement in procuring the money and that they may already know more than they have let on over whether she committed criminal acts.
“Ivanka Trump could have liability in and of her own self,” Phang explained. “She’s apparently involved in negotiating what are higher than fair market rates. It was $107 million — the most that was ever raised for any inauguration, and really what’s at issue is the illegality of pay-to-play.”
“Did foreign nationals give money to curry the incoming Trump administration, and was there overcharging by the Trump inauguration committee, — excuse me — to the Trump inauguration committee by the Trump organization?” she elaborated. “And so really there’s going to be a lot of discovery that’s going to go if there’s this investigation.”
“They’re going to look at their financials. They’re going to be able to see what’s going on,” Phang continued before she warned, “Part of this investigation is based on evidence that was seized during the Michael Cohen raids on his office, his hotel room, and his home.”
Calling Trump’s former personal attorney, “The gift that keeps on giving,” Phang added this is “the evidence that Mueller has, the Southern District of New York has, and those of us are not aware of.”
