    Mueller investigating Ukrainian presence at Trump inaugural: report

    https://thehill.com/policy/national-...augural-report

    Special counsel Robert Mueller has looked into the presence of several Ukrainian officials at President Trump's inauguration, The New York Times reported Thursday.

    The news outlet reported that federal prosecutors have interviewed witnesses about how the Ukrainians gained access to inaugural events and what they discussed during meetings while in the U.S.
    ===============================================
    A lot of illegal contributions helped these guys get access to Trump & others during the inauguration - for what purpose? Mueller is doing a thorough job of turning over the rocks that the Trump Crime Family is hiding under.

    Those would be pro-Russia Ukrainian (Viktor Yanukovych) Oligarchs.

    Trump Inaugural Fund and Super PAC Said to Be Scrutinized for Illegal Foreign Donations

    WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors are examining whether foreigners illegally funneled donations to President Trump’s inaugural committee and a pro-Trump super PAC in hopes of buying influence over American policy, according to people familiar with the inquiry.

    The inquiry focuses on whether people from Middle Eastern nations — including Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — used straw donors to disguise their donations to the two funds. Federal law prohibits foreign contributions to federal campaigns, political action committees and inaugural funds.

    Re: Mueller investigating Ukrainian presence at Trump inaugural: report

    From the very first day of the Trump administration (i.e. inaugurration day 2017) it's been apparent to anyone with the ability to reason objectively that this administration that was rotten to the core. I actually remember news accounts at that time that raised questions about the very issue raised in the OP. So it's no surprise to me to see that the Mueller team is investigating it.

    Anyone who remains dismissive of ALL of the Russian/Putin connections to the Trump campaign/administration...after all that has been revealed over the last few years (including the election campaign)...is, honestly, worthy of having his/her patriotism and/or psychological status questioned.

    No joke.

    But, it's also worth remembering that 80% of all conservatives still supported Nixon (and expressed disbelief about the Watergate scandal), right up until 2 weeks before his resignation. So, this sort of delusionalism is just part of the conservative mentality. It's hardwired in the rightwing brain.

    That's funny. Obama's inaugural fund took foreign donations.
