Newly-filed federal tax documents show President Donald Trump's inauguration committee paid two private companies more than $50 million while donating $5 million to charitable causes after the January 2017 event in Washington.

The Trump committee paid nearly $26 million to an event planning firm started by Stephanie Winston-Wolkoff, an adviser to first lady Melania Trump, according to a New York Times report. A Maryland event production company was also paid $25 million for its role in preparing for Trump's inaugural.

The Trump committee's fundraising netted $107 million — nearly twice that of President Barack Obama's inaugural in 2009.

The tax filings show that $3 million was donated to charitable organizations that aided victims of last year's hurricanes in Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida. Other donations went to Washington historical causes.
