John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

New York Prosecutors Subpoena Trump’s Inaugural Committee

Presidential Inauguration

Federal prosecutors in New York on Monday subpoenaed President Trump’s inaugural committee as part of an investigation into possible illegal foreign contributions to the $107 million inaugural fund.

“We have just received a subpoena for documents. While we are still reviewing the subpoena, it is our intention to cooperate with the inquiry,” a spokesman for the inaugural committee told reporters after being served with the subpoena, which was first reported by ABC News.

The subpoena is the latest legal headache for Trump, whose campaign is under investigation in the special counsel’s probe. His real estate firm, Trump Organization, is also under scrutiny in the Southern District of New York, which issued Monday’s subpoena.

The public corruption section of the New York prosecutor’s office issued the subpoena, according to ABC. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has investigating donations to Trump’s inaugural committee, but that appears to have been spun off to New York prosecutors as the Mueller probe appears to be winding down.

The subpoena requests information on donors, vendors, and contractors affiliated with the committee, as well as committee bank accounts and any other information related to foreign contributors to the committee.

Prosecutors are investigating possible conspiracy to defraud the United States, mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering, according to various reports.

While the subpoena is generally light on specifics, it does seek communications between the inaugural committee and Imaad Zuberi, a Los Angeles-based venture capitalist who donated $900,000 to the inauguration.

Zuberi donated heavily to Democrats and Hillary Clinton before contributing heavily to Trump. Zuberi visited Trump Tower in December 2016, meeting with future national security adviser Michael Flynn and a delegation of Qatari government officials.

The finance operations for the inaugural committee were largely directed by Rick Gates, the longtime business partner of Paul Manafort who pleaded guilty as part of a cooperation agreement with the special counsel.

Gates testified against Manafort at his trial on bank fraud and tax evasion in Virginia last year. Gates acknowledged during his testimony that it was “possible” that he stole funds from the inaugural committee.

The chairman of the committee was Thomas Barrack, a New York real estate developer who knows Trump and has worked closely with Manafort.
