It appears that Trump's inaugural committee was involved in a money laundering scheme.
The Trump Inaugural committee just got caught forking over gobs of cash to the President’s DC hotel in serious violation of the IRS tax code and everything resembling an ethics guideline.

“Please take into consideration that when this is audited it will become public knowledge,” wrote Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, an experienced New York-based event planner, suggesting a fair rate for the event spaces would be at most $85,000 per day, less than half of what was ultimately paid. That fee did not cover catering.
