Trump Willingly Committed Multiple Crimes With Inaugural Spending: Ex-Prosecutor
MSNBC legal analyst and former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner noted on Friday that multiple laws were broken by the White House inauguration spending and Donald Trump likely knew what was going on.
“There are three crimes, potentially, in play here,” Kirschner said. “One is a prohibition against foreign donations to an inaugural fund. The other is for donating money in exchange for political favors and the third is misuse of donated funds.”
“Hold on tight because here we go again,” Kirschner added, saying it was highly likely that the president knew funds were being misused.
“We’ve all heard reported over and over again that nothing really happened without consultation with Donald Trump, certainly with his organization,” he said. “We can assume that pattern may have held when he was in that period when he was the president-elect into the time after his inauguration.”
