The Trump Organization has been under scrutiny from the Justice Department and Congress since revelations surfaced last month that he and his associates were using the Trump Organization’s Trump Shuttle airline as a vehicle to move foreign government delegations.
The company has been in the news for a number of years, including a failed attempt to sell the business in 2013.
But, the Trump administration has taken the lead in scrutinizing the Trump Shuttle.
The Department of Justice is looking into whether the Trump-owned company violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) by using foreign governments as business partners for its shuttle service.
The Department also wants to know how Trump managed the company’s finances and whether it has complied with federal regulations.
Trump’s business empire also came under scrutiny last month when it was revealed that Trump had a business relationship with Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska, who is also the son of President Vladimir Putin.
Deripakhas son, Dmitry, is now facing sanctions for his involvement in a scheme to sell $230 million worth of luxury goods to Russia in a deal that was investigated by Congress and the Justice and Treasury Departments.
