Federal prosecutors in New York announced Monday they are investigating Elliott Broidy, a former top Republican fundraiser who was involved with President Donald Trumps inauguration.

For at least one year, prosecutors have been seeking to determine whether Broidy, a Los Angeles private investor, attempted to illegally profit from his role a fundraiser for Trump’s inauguration.

The U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York subpoenaed Trump’s inaugural committee in April for documents pertaining to Broidy, firms linked to him and foreign contacts of his.

George Nadera major witness in Robert Mueller‘s Russia probe, also has ties to Broidy. Nader was charged with child pornography possession last month.
