JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Trump’s inaugural committee took in a record $107 million haul from donors, nearly double the amount that any other inauguration had raised.

Allegations that at least part of that $107 million came from foreigners have dogged the committee since it occurred. Federal campaign finance law prohibits foreigners from contributing money to presidential inaugural committees.

House investigators are interested in the following witnesses and entities:

-Trump Org CLO Alan Garten

-Trump inaugural committee via Tom Barrack

-Trump transition
