“California investor charged with obstructing probe of Trump inaugural donation”


A prolific California donor who pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations now faces a fresh charge for allegedly trying to stymie an investigation into the source of money he donated to the Trump inauguration committee.

Prosecutors in the Southern District of New York unveiled an obstruction of justice charge against Imaad Zuberi, an investor who last year pleaded guilty to making illegal campaign contributions and failing to disclose his lobbying work on behalf of foreign clients. Zuberi has a long history of donating millions of dollars to both Democrats and Republicans, including a $900,000 outlay for the Trump inaugural.
