DC’s attorney general subpoenas Trump inaugural committee

Published

on

Washington, DC’s attorney general has subpoenaed Donald Trump’s inaugural committee — becoming the third government body to do so.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that DC Attorney General Karl A. Racine’s subpoena has “similar demands” to those of prosecutors in Manhattan and New Jersey.

The report noted that Racine “appears to be looking for any evidence of self-dealing” based on the subpoenas statement that investigators are looking into whether money was “wasted, mismanaged and/or improperly provided private benefit, causing the committee to exceed or abuse its authority or act contrary to its nonprofit purpose.”

Racine’s subpoena requested documents about the inaugural committee’s payments to the Trump Organization or the Trump International Hotel, including exchanges about “the pricing of venue rentals.”

“The committee paid Mr. Trump’s hotel $1.5 million for rooms, meals and the use of a ballroom,” the Times noted.

In the subpoena, the DC AG noted that the office is also seeking documents about Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric Trump’s roles on the committee. As the Times noted, none of the president’s adult children had formal titles on the inaugural committee.

Fox News host: Teachers practicing COVID safety are like ‘George Wallace standing in the school door’

Published

Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday accused teachers who want COVID-19 safety measures of re-enacting Jim Crow-era segregation rules.

Levin made the remarks during a rant about President Donald Trump's executive action on COVID-19 financial relief.

"Democrat governors have shut down this economy from sea to shining sea," Levin opined. "And they like it both ways, the Democrats. They want to lock up everybody like we're lamb in cages and then they want to complain about the economic consequences."

"And then they say, this president, look what he's doing," he continued. "Let me tell you, payback is a bitch. You remember Obama with his phone and his pen. Well, apparently he left his phone and his pen and President Trump picked it up."
