Part of its lawsuit alleging the misuse of inaugural funds 🐷
"(CNN) Ivanka Trump, the President's daughter and adviser, sat for a deposition Tuesday with investigators from the Washington, DC, attorney general's office as part of its lawsuit alleging the misuse of inaugural funds, according to a court filing."
"In January, the DC attorney general's office sued the Trump Organization and Presidential Inaugural Committee alleging they abused more than $1 million raised by the nonprofit by "grossly overpaying" for use of event space at the Trump hotel in Washington for the 2017 inauguration."
"The committee's own event planner -- Stephanie Winston Wolkoff -- advised against the transaction, telling the committee and the Trump family that the charges were at least twice the market rate, the lawsuit states."
"Wolkoff "noted unease with the offer during an in-person meeting with President-elect Trump and Ivanka Trump," said DC Attorney General Karl Racine. She also sent a follow-up email to both Ivanka Trump and Gates to "express [her] concern," according to the attorney general."
