Trump innaugural documents handed over to DC prosecutor

It's really hard to keep up. That's probably a Trump strategy. Is there anything that Trump gets involved in that doesn't involve self-dealing? My favorite part of the article is "while Cohen reads through the prison library and works out with 'The Situation' ".

Investigating Trump Family Self-Dealing, the D.C. Attorney General Has Subpoenaed Documents From Melaniaís Former Right-Hand Woman

The summer swelter lingered in the swamp around President Donald Trumpís Washington in late July. Democrats in Congress continued to mull whether or not they would move to impeach him; Republicans, habitually, turned a blind eye to his hateful rhetoric and compulsive Twitter attacks. In New York the stock market teetered as traders awaited the administrationís next move on tariffs; prosecutors in the Southern District of New York appeared, without great logic or transparency, to close its campaign-finance investigation into Trumpís hush money payments without indicting anyone else involved apart from his longtime attorney Michael Cohen, who, by July, was more than two months into a three-year sentence at a federal facility in the Catskills.

While Cohen reads through the prison library and works out with ďThe SituationĒ in the Otisville Correctional Facilityís gym, his former neighbor on Park Avenue Stephanie Winston Wolkoff was having a different sort of summer. Last month, Wolkoff received a subpoena from the Washington, D.C., attorney generalís office, requesting documents related to President Trumpís inauguration, which Wolkoff had a heavy hand in planning. The $107 million event has been under investigation for months, including by federal prosecutors in New York and New Jersey, for profligate spending and questions about foreign donations. The latest subpoena appears to be probing potential self-dealing by the Trump Organization and members of the presidentís family, according to two people familiar with the investigation.

Wolkoff complied with the request, according to these sources, by the July 26 deadline, which asked her to turn over records involving the inaugural event, the presidentís family and associates, and expenditures by the inaugural committee that could shine a light on whether the nonprofit group provided private benefits to the Trump Organization. The attorney general appears to be particularly interested in payments being made through the inaugural committee to Trump-owned businesses, and whether there was a fair bidding process for contractors.
