Melania’s right-hand woman just handed over a treasure trove of documents to the DC attorney general

Published

on

First lady Melania Trump’s right-hand woman, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, just handed over a huge bundle of documents to the attorney general of Washington, D.C., wrote Emily Jane Fox for Vanity Fair.

The subpoena came last month, requesting documents about President Donald Trump’s inauguration, which Wolkoff worked extensively to plan. The inauguration has been under investigation for months after it was revealed foreign nationals were searching for ways to donate. At least one person scammed a foreign donor searching for a front-row seat to the event. Then there’s the matter of the inauguration raising more than any other committee in history while spending a shockingly low amount of it.

“The latest subpoena appears to be probing potential self-dealing by the Trump Organization and members of the president’s family, according to two people familiar with the investigation,” wrote Fox.

Wolkoff handed over all of the requested documents having to do with the inauguration by the July 28 deadline. They could reveal whether the Trump Organization was scoring benefits on the side.

“The attorney general appears to be particularly interested in payments being made through the inaugural committee to Trump-owned businesses, and whether there was a fair bidding process for contractors,” Fox wrote.

Wolkoff won’t give any information, however, saying she’s bound by a non-disclosure agreement.

“If the [Presidential Inaugural Committee] wants to release me from this obligation, I would be able to speak freely without the fear of legal or financial repercussions,” she said in a statement. “Otherwise, I am regrettably unable to provide substantial comment.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) requested the same documents through the House Intelligence Committee.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

on

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.

Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
