Michael Cohen, a former lawyer for Trump, sentenced to three years

The u.s. Attorney's office in Manhattan is investigating the expenses of the committee for the organization of the inauguration of president Donald Trump, who raised donations with a value of $ 107 million, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The newspaper, citing sources close to the matter, ensures that it also examines whether some of the major contributors to this committee have made donations in exchange for political favors on the part of the Administration directed by the president.

The research, which is in initial phase, has emerged from the material seized by the authorities during the federal investigation on business of the former personal lawyer for Trump, Michael Cohen, according to journal.

Cohen was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison for various crimes, among them silence two women with whom Trump had kept supposedly extramarital affairs, as well as for lying to Congress about the project of the now-chairman of locate in Moscow a 'Trump Tower'.

The political favors, among which is mentioned to get access to Government grants by legislative and / or influence on official positions, could lead to a violation of the federal laws, as well as the alleged diversion of funds of a non-profit organization.

In the logs to the properties of Cohen, in April, the FBI allegedly obtained a recorded conversation in which Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former advisor to the first lady, Melania Trump, who worked on the events of the inauguration, expressed his "concern" to the attorney about the expenses of the committee.

however, the journal quotes a lawyer close to the matter that puts in doubt "is actually" the research that is reported.

According to this lawyer, the committee for the organization of the investiture has not been contacted by prosecutors and has not received requests for information.

The committee spent $ 103 million and only identified where they were to stop 61 of these millions, because as a non-profit organization is only required to make public funds allocated for the five larger entities with which he worked.

The acts of the inauguration in January of 2017, included a concert, receptions, private meals and other festivities on the occasion of the inauguration of the mandate.

According to tax documents, the signature to which more was paid by the committee, $ 25.8 million, was WIS Media Partners, led by the former advisor to the first lady that would have spoken to Cohen in the tape-recorded conversation and that it was created 45 days before the events of the investiture.

Many of those who supported the campaign of the current president participated in the fund for the celebrations of his inauguration, which raised more than double that of his predecessor, Barack Obama, in 2009, thanks to donations exceeding a million dollars from tycoons and corporations.

prosecutors have questioned Richard Gates, assistant during the election campaign of Trump and the deputy president of the committee for the endowment, in connection with the expenditure of those funds collected, and their taxpayers, according to sources quoted by the newspaper.

At the beginning of the year, Gates was declared guilty of conspiring against the country through consultancy works in the field of foreign policy unrelated to the campaign. He was prosecuted by the special prosecutor Mueller, who is investigating the plot Russian, and has agreed to cooperate with the Justice in other investigations.
