Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating foreign donations to President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee, according to a new report.
Mueller’s investigators have questioned several witnesses about millions of dollars in contributions from donors with links to Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Russia, according to ABC News.
One of the people interviewed is Thomas Barrack, a longtime Trump friend who handled financing for the president’s inaugural committee.
Barrack, a billionaire real estate investor, pulled in more than $100 million for the inauguration, ABC News reported. That was more than double what was raised for former President Obama’s inauguration in 2009.
Witnesses have been asked about Andrew Intrater, the chairman of Columbus Nova, the company revealed on May 8 to have paid longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen nearly $500,000 in the months after Trump’s inauguration.
Intrater is the cousin of Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian billionaire who was recently sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department. Mueller’s team interviewed Intrater and Vekselberg within the past two months.
Intrater contributed $250,000 to Trump’s swearing-in event, which both he and Vekselberg attended.
