More than $1 million collected by non-governmental organizations was spent from the inauguration fund three years ago.
The Washington D.C. Attorney’s Office questioned Donald Trump, daughter and advisor to the current U.S. President, Ivanka Trump, on the case of embezzlement of the White House acting head’s inauguration fund in 2017. We are talking about the amount of one million dollars, writes CNN.
Interrogation on the lawsuit for misuse of funds was held on Tuesday, December 1.
In January 2020, the prosecutor’s office in Washington filed a lawsuit against Trump Organization and the Presidential Inauguration Committee. Prosecutors claimed that they found abuse of more than one million dollars. Apparently, the money was overpaid when renting the inauguration space at Trump Hotel.
The prosecutor’s office requested reports from Ivanka Trump herself, as well as from First Lady Melanie Trump, Tom Barrack, head of the inauguration committee, and Rick Gates, former deputy chairman of the inauguration committee.
