Melania Trump’s right-hand woman, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who served as the First Lady’s former senior advisor and was deeply involved in Donald Trump’s inauguration may soon find herself on Donald (and by default Melania’s) ever-growing shit list after Vanity Fair’s Jane Fox reported that Winston Wolkoff handed over an abundance of documents to the Washington D.C. Attorney General.
Wolkoff surrendered the documents as a result of a subpoena that requested the paperwork in connection to the Trump inauguration that Stephanie was so deeply involved in planning. The very same inauguration that has been under investigation for quite some time now for an array of reasons — including the revelation of foreign nationals digging for a way to scheme and donate, at least one foreign donor being scammed when searching for a front-row seat to the shindig, and of course the fact that the event raised a record-breaking amount of money while somehow managing to spend a suspiciously low amount of it.
Fox wrote in Vanity Fair, “The latest subpoena appears to be probing potential self-dealing by the Trump Organization and members of the president’s family, according to two people familiar with the investigation.”
Wolkoff was one of the very few individuals associated with the Trump administration who actually abided by the subpoena and turned in all requested documents by the due date of July 28th — which may very well determine once and for all if the Trump Organization was, in fact, skimming off the top.
“The attorney general appears to be particularly interested in payments being made through the inaugural committee to Trump-owned businesses, and whether there was a fair bidding process for contractors,” Fox continued.
However, Wolkoff did state that she would not be giving any information as she was bound by an NDA.
“If the [Presidential Inaugural Committee] wants to release me from this obligation, I would be able to speak freely without the fear of legal or financial repercussions,” Stephanie said in a statement. “Otherwise, I am regrettably unable to provide substantial comment.”
Rep. Adam Schiff, through the House Intelligence Committee, has since requested access to the same documents.
And now we just sit back and wait for the Twitter fit.
