Stalin Would be Proud: Feds in SDNY Examining Tens of Thousands of Trump Inauguration Documents Hoping to Find a Crime
Federal prosecutors have found their man (Trump) – and now they’re searching for a crime.
Stalin would be proud.
Federal prosecutors in New York are examining tens of thousands of Trump inauguration documents in search of a crime to pin on the President.
President Trump’s inaugural committee handed over a trove of documents in response to a February subpoena seeking records and communications related to Trump’s inaugural donors and activities — in other words, more opposition research.
According to a new report by CNN, the last tranche of documents was produced within the last month and feds in the SDNY are now combing through tens of thousands of documents.
CNN also (reluctantly) reported that the feds have found no damaging information in the documents.
Here’s the backstory:
In December it was reported that New York federal prosecutors were investigating Trump’s inauguration spending.
Then-President elect Donald Trump received $107 million in donations to his inaugural committee and the feds launched a fishing expedition to see if the funds were misspent.
This investigation into Trump’s inauguration committee stems from the April 2018 FBI raid of Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen’s home and office.
Feds are concerned with the ‘foreign guests’ who were present at Donald Trump’s inaugural event — there is nothing out of the ordinary about foreigners attending a US presidential inauguration but, Orange Man bad.
One guest in particular the feds, and Mueller were interested in is of course a Russian — Russian billionaire Viktor Vekselberg was questioned about donating money to Trump through his company’s US affiliate, Columbus Nova, to Michael Cohen.
Of course that was fake news — Vekselberg never made a contribution to Trump’s inauguration.
In reality, Viktor Vekselberg’s cousin, Andrew Intrater, an AMERICAN citizen made $300,000 in donations to Trump’s campaign and inaugural fund, but the liars in the media needed their ‘Trump-Russia’ headlines.
Viktor Vekselberg is now on the Treasury Department’s list of sanctioned Russian oligarchs.
Last year, Mueller and his team of angry Democrats questioned several witnesses about millions in donations from donors with connections to Russia, Saudi Arabia and Qatar and zeroed in on Sam Patten, a political consultant who revealed, as part of a plea deal that he took $50,000 to buy tickets for a Ukrainian businessman who wanted to attend Trump’s inauguration.
Wow, so scandalous.
In other words, Mueller and the feds have NOTHING, yet they will seek to indict more of Trump’s associates on process crimes.
