Former Trump Inaugural Fundraiser Elliott Broidy Investigated By New York Prosecutors
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.
Stay informed on the latest political news.
Broidy also previously worked as deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee until April 2018. He resigned at that time after reports surfaced that he had paid $1.6 million a former Playboy model who accused him of impregnating her. Broidy did not deny his connection to the woman.
1) Elliott Broidy, Trump-appointed RNC deputy finance chair, is under federal probe.
2) Broidy is accused of taking foreign cash to provide access to Trump under circumstances in which the arrangement would’ve been clear to Trump.
3) Conspiracy to Commit Bribery is impeachable.
