Trump Campaign Caught Paying Millions To Firm Run By First Lady’s Adviser: Report

In another case of conflict of interest, the inaugural committee for President Trump paid nearly $26 million to a company run by an adviser to the first lady, Melania Trump, recent tax filings have revealed.

Citing the tax documents, The New York Times reported Thursday that the inaugural committee spent more than $50 million to just two companies, one of which is an event planning firm owned by Melania Trump’s adviser, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff.

According to the report, the committee raised $107 million for the inauguration, and had pledged to donate whatever was left to charity. However, the tax filings revealed that the committee’s charitable donation totaled just $5 million, much less than expected. No one seems to know where the rest of the money went.
