Trump's Innaugural Committee a rat's nest of corruption

Wow, who could have foreseen that? Millions of dollars of untraceable, unaccountable, anonymous donations.

Where’d Trump’s Record Inauguration Spending Go? ‘It’s Inexplicable’

Two members of President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee have been convicted of financial crimes, and a third — the committee’s treasurer — was an unindicted co-conspirator in an accounting fraud.

Last month, the committee that ran President Donald Trump’s inaugural festivities released basic details about its revenues and spending. Trump raised $107 million, almost twice the previous record, and spent $104 million. The committee’s tax filing showed that $26 million of the spending went to an event planning firm started in December by a friend of the first lady.

It’s not clear how the firm spent that money, or how most of the money raised for the inauguration was used. The tax filing doesn’t show spending by subcontractors, nor is it required to do so.

3. I hear the House Intelligence Committee suddenly has some free time

Maybe Devin Nunes could do his Inspector Clouseau routine on this?
