Report: Mueller is Following the Money to Trump’s Inauguration

Over a hundred million dollars flowed into Trump's inaugural committee, but where did all the money go?

No one knows except possibly special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

ABC News reports that Mueller's team has been investigating donations made to the inaugural committee and, more specifically, they're looking at donations that may have come from overseas.

According to a source who has sat with the Mueller team for interviews in recent weeks, the special counsel is examining donors who have either business or personal connections in Russia, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. Several donors with those ties contributed large sums to the non-profit fundraising entity – gifts that topped out at $1 million dollars, according to public records.

Connecting this story to other dots, at least some of the companies that donated to Trump's inaugural committee were also recently exposed for paying Trump's attorney Michael Cohen under the table including Columbus Nova, the company linked to Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg.

Were Cohen and Vekselberg the money men?

Mueller probably already knows the answer to these questions as recent reports indicate Mueller's team is months ahead of the headlines. What we're learning about today they were already investigating months ago.

    Where did all the money go?

    Well, everything else about the Donald Trump presidency looks a lot like a money laundering operation, so I’m betting it got funneled back to the Russian and Ukrainian mobsters who financed his recent real estate activities (less a slice to Trump for services rendered).
