Lead witness in Trump inaugural investigation: 'It's taken over my life'

Former advisor to Melania Trump, and now lead witness in the investigation into former President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff appeared on Cuomo Prime Time Thursday where she spoke about the Trump Organization’s control over funds for events surrounding the former president’s 2017 inauguration.

“It is really alerting and alarming that the Trump Organization's role in not only being paid by the PIC (Presidential Inaugural Committee), the inaugural committee, inflated prices, not market rates, which they insist,” Wolkoff said, “but as well as having authority over the finances of the $107 million.”

Wolkoff, who was fired by Melania Trump in February of 2018, said the investigation has taken over her life, adding that she called out the irregularities in the allocation of funds, irregularities that she’s now sharing with prosecutors.

“I'm sitting here today, Chris, three years in. It's taken over my life, this investigation, as a lead witness. Grand jury subpoena from the Southern District of New York all the way, you know, to the intelligence committee and now USDC (United States District Court for the District of Columbia),” Wolkoff said, later adding, “I was calling out the inconsistencies, the irregularities, I had a big issue with all of them. And because of that, they threw me under the bus. But the reality of all that is, they actually put me in the center of all of this. And I had spent three years figuring it all out, and connecting dots, and helping prosecutors, not because I wanted to, but because I was subpoenaed to do so.”
