The District of Columbia attorney general’s office has subpoenaed President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee for documents related to an investigation into whether the fund’s spending was “wasteful, mismanaged” or “improperly provided private benefit.”

The subpoena, reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, is the third such request to the committee, which is also the subject of investigations by the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office and the New Jersey attorney general.

“The Presidential Inauguration Committee is in receipt of the subpoena issued by the Attorney General for the District of Columbia, and is in contact with staff regarding this inquiry,” a spokesman for the committee said. The subpoena was first reported by the New York Times.

D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine’s subpoena appears more narrowly focused than the other two subpoenas the committee has received, signaling an interest by investigators into dealings between the inaugural committee and Trump’s family business.
