Federal prosecutors are investigating possible illegally channeled foreign donations to President Trump’s inaugural fund and a pro-Trump super PAC, The New York Times reported Thursday.

The investigation is focused on whether people from Middle Eastern countries, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates disguised donations they made to both funds by using straw donors.

Thomas Barrack Jr., a financier with close ties to Trump, reportedly raised money for both funds, according to the Times.
