Prosecutors Believe Melania Trump Diverted At Least $26 Million From The 2016 Inaugural

Back in December of 2018, we learned that yet another investigation is now underway into actions taken by Donald Trump and members of his 2016 election team. The Wall Street Journal reported that federal prosecutors were looking at whether or not foreigners illegally donated to President Trump’s inaugural committee and a pro-Trump Super PAC in the hope of buying influence when it came to American policy.

The New York Times later confirmed the Journal report, noting:

“The inquiry focuses on whether people from Middle Eastern nations — including Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — used straw donors to disguise their donations to the two funds. Federal law prohibits foreign contributions to federal campaigns, political action committees and inaugural funds.”

But while this new scandal is merely the latest when it comes to possibly illegal activities committed by Donald Trump, it also appears to possibly implicate First Lady Melania Trump.

As was first reported by The Times, the Trump inaugural committee paid $26 million — almost a fourth of the $107 million raised for the inauguration — to WIS Media Partners, a company formed in December 2016 and founded by Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who just so happens to be a close friend of Melania Trump. Wolkoff’s company was paid that enormous sum for “event production services,” whatever that means.

So the question that logically follows from those facts is: Why did the inaugural committee pay a close friend of the First Lady $26 million? And the question that comes from that query is this: Did Melania Trump receive anything in return? Was there a quid pro quo?

While we don’t have access to the inner workings of the investigation of the inaugural committee, former Deputy Attorney General Harry Litman said on MSNBC that the First Lady is facing legal exposure just for the appearance that something shady was behind that $26 million payment.

Oh, and even if the federal investigation goes nowhere thanks to the meddling of Attorney General William Barr, the AG for Washington, D.C. is already issuing subpoenas related to the Trump inaugural, and neither Barr or Trump can interfere with state probes or criminal charges brought by local authorities.

We’ve long known that Donald Trump and his children — who all play a role in his businesses — were in legal jeopardy. And it now appears that the First Lady may be under suspicion for criminal behavior. No matter how you slice it, Melania has a lot of questions to answer.

UPDATE: Stephanie Winston Wolkoff has written a tell-all book about Melania and is also cooperating with investigators looking into the First Lady and possible illegal activities related to the 2016 Trump inaugural.

  1. Hell yeah she/it/they r pulling something shady w that 26 mil. Supposedly she contracted her buddy for meals for the Puerto Rico disaster. All the food was never sent or stayed on the docks n rotted. The FEMA mess. This was a hugh scandal that mysteriously disappeared.

    • This is easy–it’s a tidy nest egg to salt away for when Melania flies the coop! It was clear at the time! Paid to her best friend? How convenient!. Trumps cant get it through their heads that campaign funds must be used ONLY for campaigns, and reported to FEC! Its not THEIR money to steal!

  2. If you bed with a rapacious, infested, scallawag of a dog , you’re sure to pick up bad traits and habits and acquire bed bugs, STDs, lice, scabies, herpes, habitual lying, cheating , stealing, deceiving, double dealing, the art of fraud, conmanship, manipulation, playing both ends against the middle, dividing and conquering, all things Machiavellian and fleas.

      • im with you einstein visa???????We will never see her true papers! NIce for her that she also got her parents in and then they try and close the door for everyone elses parents.
        Did Melania pay taxes on the money she earned as a “super model” here before she became a citizen.?
        Who pays for three white houses, we do ,so Melania can be a good mother?
        lastly , who pays for Melanias monthly plane trips to n.y to get her hair done and go shopping…What fools are we to not see this gigantic astronomical bill continuing from the trumps…the southern district of n.y. is coming for every illegal act they have all committed against the united states.

    • “”No home for hate here”….that’s what the the democrat signs in my neighborhood say ….If this is an example of the of the tolerance you profess I’m embarrassed for you….I have been a registered Democrat for 50 years… I’m embarrassed for me for being so dumb!

  3. there are pictures of her having sex in a public bathroom at Motel bars with her “friends”
    her statement was that she did not want to get a motel room because that would embarrass her husband who was with his bunny that she knew was going to be the president, they had it all set up a few years before the election to take the office
    some of the pictures ended up on YouTube10. the bar owners shared the pictures. they have been or were public after they took over this nation for russia. her greed is overwhelming. she was a prostitute when he met her, he bought her as a wife

  4. I was going to leave a comment but everyone else covered it beautifully! She’s just the female version of the orange buffoon!!

  5. I am not a Melania fan but I think some truth would be helpful here. The 26 million was paid to her buddy but it has been investigated and all but something like 1.3 million was paid out to sub-contractors. There were a lot of nefarious dealings in
    regard to contributions to and the very inflated hotel room and event space rates for the Inauguration but the 26 million has been audited and verified as valid expenses. Melania’s buddy has a long history of managing large charitable and society events so using her services was not a dodgy act. She noted that she felt the room rates were out of line and negotiated some of the rates down . She told them at the time that it would all be audited and the outrageous room rates Trump was trying to pocket would look very bad on audit. I understand she negotiated them down where she could.

  6. Three years ago (or so) MSNBC reported that the con of the President of Venezuela showed up with about 17 suitcases packed with cash at the Inaugural house. Melania and a few people spent the next 2-3 days counting it. The Money was never reported and never showed up in any reports on campaign gifts
