Prosecutors are intensifying their probe into possible attempts by Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy to profit from his links to the Trump administration, The Wall Street Journal is reporting.

The newspaper’s report, posted Friday, attributed its information to “people familiar with the matter.” Broidy was a top fundraiser for Donald Trump in 2016 .

Investigators are looking into whether he was paid by his intelligence-contracting firm’s foreign and prospective clients to give them special access at Trump’s inauguration, the Journal reported.

Federal prosecutors, in early April, asked Trump’s inaugural committee for documents related to Broidy and his company’s clients. The company, Circinus LLC, provides intelligence research for foreign governments and others, according to the newspaper.

Several Angolan and Romanian officials were invited by Broidy to the 2017 inaugural events. Those invited included one Romanian who was set to go on trial for corruptions weeks later, the Journal reported. And some Angolan officials were introduced to members of Congress by Broidy during a trip, the newspaper said.

The Journal noted that prosecutors have asked witnesses to provide details about Broidy’s business dealings involving inaugural events.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the inaugural committee said it responded to prosecutors’ requests in April and have not heard anything since.

And a representative for Broidy told the newspaper his company’s foreign guests who attended inaugural events were approved by the committee and State Department officials.
