A federal grand jury is investigating the creation and spending of a political action committee controlled by former President Donald Trump, according to new reports Thursday.
That PAC was created days after the 2020 presidential election, which Trump lost to President Joe Biden.
ABC, which first reported the subpoenas, noted that Trump and his allies “have consistently pushed supporters to donate to the PAC, often using false claims about the 2020 election and soliciting donations to rebuke the multiple investigations into the former president, his business dealings, and his actions on Jan. 6.”
A spokeswoman for Trump did not immediately respond to a request from CNBC for comment on the reports
Trump currently faces two pressing criminal investigations.
The other is related to the removal of government documents from the White House to Trump’s residence at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, when he left office in January 2021. The FBI last month raided Mar-a-Lago and seized thousands of such documents, including ones that were highly classified.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing.
