A federal subpoena seeking documents from Donald Trump's inaugural committee is part of "a hysteria" over the fact that he's president, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Tuesday.

A spokesman for the committee also confirmed to The New York Times it was still reviewing the subpoena and meant to cooperate with the investigation.

A spokesman for the inauguration committee said they meant to comply with the subpoena.

The New York Times reported last month that the inaugural committee spent lavishly.

A spokeswoman says the committee intends to cooperate with the inquiry.

The subpoena was issued by prosecutors from the USA attorney's office in the Southern District of NY, rather than special counsel Robert Mueller.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The investigation is the latest in a series of criminal inquiries into Trump's campaign and presidency.

The intention, first reported by ABC News, suggests that beyond special counsel Robert Mueller there is continued scrutiny of people connected to President Donald Trump. In a separate case in NY, prosecutors say Trump directed his personal lawyer Michael Cohen to make illegal hush-money payments to two women as a way to quash potential sex scandals during the campaign.

Federal prosecutors in NY on Monday subpoenaed President Donald Trump's inaugural committee for documents related to donors, vendors and finances, according to a copy of the subpoena reviewed by CNN, a step that appears to escalate that office's ongoing investigation of the committee's activity.

The subpoena requires the committee to give investigators documentation about nearly every donor or donation received, as well as any benefits the committee may have offered to donors, including photo opportunities and meetings. Federal law prohibits foreign contributions to inaugural funds.

Federal prosecutors' investigation into the committee involves possible financial abuses related to the more than $100 million in donations raised for Trump's inauguration, CNN has reported.

The committee was chaired by real estate developer Tom Barrack, a longtime friend of Trump.

Prosecutors also showed interest in whether any foreigners illegally donated to the committee, the New York Times reported. Barrack told the AP he was not a target of the Mueller investigation, which has been looking into Russian interference in the 2016 elections.
