WASHINGTON: A federal grand jury of the United States is probing Ex-President Donald Trump's Save America fundraising group, a media report said, citing subpoenas.
It was reported that the leadership of the political action committee received subpoenas, as the US Justice Department looks into the group's spending, as per New York Times report.
The White House subpoenaed mid- and low-level aides who worked there during Trump's presidency earlier this week. Requests for any response on the situation from Trump's staff were not immediately fulfilled.
Days after Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, the former president launched "Save America." Since then, the political action committee has amassed more than USD 100 million.
One month ago, FBI investigators searched Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. The investigation that followed.
An earlier court order in Florida mandated the appointment of a "special master" to review more than 11,000 documents removed from Trump's Mar-a-Lago property.
A DOJ investigation into whether the former president improperly stored information related to national security at Mar-a-Lago and whether he resisted government efforts to obtain the materials led to the search and seizure of the records.
Trump claimed on social media that the FBI raid had transformed the US from a country with a rule of law into a "banana republic." The FBI claimed it had "probable cause" to conduct a raid because it thought it would discover "proof of obstruction" at Trump's Mar-a-Lago home, which is illegal in the US.
