Court: Trump Inauguration Lawsuit May Continue

NBC News reports:

A judge denied a bid Wednesday to dismiss a lawsuit alleging that President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee and the Trump Organization misused nonprofit funds to enrich the president’s family business.

The suit, brought by Washington, D.C., Attorney General Karl Racine in January, alleges that the president’s inaugural committee was aware that it was being overcharged for services at Trump’s Washington hotel in 2017 and still spent over $1 million at the hotel, including money for a private party for Trump’s three older children.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who organized the inauguration, provided tens of thousands of electronic documents to Racine’s office, which were used to support the lawsuit’s allegations.
