(RepublicanPress.org) – Karl Racine, Washington DC’s attorney general, filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee and Trump Organization on January 22, 2020. The suit alleged the campaign misused funds by charging an inflated rate for space at the Trump International Hotel located in the District of Columbia. On December 1, DC prosecutors deposed first daughter and presidential advisor Ivanka Trump for more than five hours as part of their ongoing investigation.
On December 3, Ivanka pushed back against Racine’s office, posting a tweet characterizing the investigation as another politically-motivated witch hunt. She also attached a partial screenshot of an email sent by her to two Trump hotel executives advising them to charge “a fair market rate” for the facility’s use.

Racine responded a few hours later in a short Twitter thread, disputing her claim. According to him, his office filed suit after collecting evidence the hotel overcharged the Presidential Inaugural Committee. Continuing, he added the defendants violated the law, and that’s why his office sued them.
This week, several new organizations reported the president is considering granting pardons to several family members and associates as a means of preventing the possibility of future witch hunts.
