Along with investigators in New York, Los Angeles prosecutors have also joined in on probes into President Donald Trump.
The New York Times reported that California prosecutors have taken part in inquiries about the president’s inaugural fund, according to sources briefed on the investigation.
“The Justice Department continues to investigate the business and political dealings of Elliott Broidy, a top fund-raiser for Mr. Trump’s campaign and inauguration, who tried to use his access to the Trump team to boost his businesses,” the Times reported, adding that “federal investigators in Los Angeles have also taken part in the inquiry.”
The report enumerated the investigations into the president that are continuing to take place in the wake of the submission of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report to the Justice Department.
Federal prosecutors in Washington, DC, for instance, “will handle the prosecution of the Trump political adviser Roger J. Stone Jr., who was charged as part of Mr. Mueller’s investigation.”
New York authorities are separately “pursuing several investigations focused on the president, his associates and his business,” including a mortgage fraud case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and “civil inquiries into the Trump Organization’s insurance practices, real estate deals, and whether the family’s charitable foundation violated tax laws.”
Prosecutors in Brooklyn are also looking into Trump inaugural committee donations and the Middle East ties of the committee’s chairman, Trump’s longtime friend Tom Barrack who in 2018 was interviewed by Mueller, people briefed on the discussion told the Times.
