Witness submissions as part of the case have been ongoing for the past few weeks.
Tom Barak, chairman of the founding committee, was ousted on November 17, according to the court case.
The Attorney General also called for recordings from Barak, Ivanka Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and Rick Gates, a former deputy chairman of the inaugural commission, the documents said.
According to the case, Gates “personally leads” discussions with the Trump Hotel about the event space.
In December 2016, Gates wrote to Ivanka Trump that he was “a little worried about the optics of PIC [Presidential Inaugural Committee] “paying a high fee to the Trump Hotel, and the media is making a big story out of it,”
According to the lawsuit, Gates agreed with the hotel’s managing director and members of Trump’s family to pay $ 175,000 a day so the commission could reserve a seat for four days.
The committee’s own event organizer, Stephanie Winston Wolfoff, did not recommend the deal, telling the commission and Trump’s family that the fees were at least twice as high as the market fees, the lawsuit said.
Walkoff “noted concern over the proposal during a personal meeting with President-elect Trump and Ivanka Trump,” said DC Attorney General Carl Racine. She also sent a follow-up email to Ivanka Trump and Gates to “express [her] concern “, according to the Prosecutor General.
“The inaugural committee nevertheless accepted the contract,” the lawsuit said.
According to sources familiar with the matter, Volkoff will be ousted next week.
