The civil complaint, filed on behalf of the District of Columbia by D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine, details the objections of staffers to exorbitant pricing for the use of Trump's Washington, D.C., hotel ballroom space


Trump's inaugural committee agreed to a contract that would enrich the Trumps at a rate of $175,000 per day--more than twice the amount per day that Wolkoff told Ivanka and Rick Gates, the deputy to the inaugural chairman, should be paid--for the use of their own space. According to the lawsuit, the charges included rental fees for days when the Trumps weren't throwing any events.


The stories of financial fraud carried out by Trump and his inaugural committee have slowly dribbled out over the past couple of years. Big-ticket items are being investigated by federal prosecutors in New York, with subpoenas getting sent out as investigators try to figure out how all of this money, around $107 million from private "donors," was being spent, and who was pocketing it.

The complaint asks that at least one million dollars be put into a trust and "be restored to a proper public purpose by directing the funds to another nonprofit entity dedicated to promoting civic engagement of the citizens of the United States of America."
