Investigators are especially interested in the contributions of foreign guests at the inauguration. (ABC News, February 4, 2019, by John Santucci, Josh Margolin and Matthew Mosk)

The New York Times reported last month that with the $107 million provided by donors, the nonprofit inauguration committee spent lavishly including paying outlandish fees to Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Melania Trump’s friend, and her firm WIS Media Partners.
