The Crowd Investigating Trump Inauguration Funding

Questions are being raised by the crowd about the reporting of, and the donations to, the Trump inauguration.

Started by the Huffington Post, the Citizen Sleuth Project, a crowdsourcing network of volunteers, has built a spreadsheet of Trump’s inauguration donors.

This group of 1,000 +/- has crowdsourced the fact-checking of the Trump inaugural donor records that number about 1,500 separate donations.

Discrepancies, such as a $25,000 false donation from a woman featured in the NASA movie “Hidden Figures” have surfaced.

In addition, pundits also assert that the inaugural committee raised far more money than was spent and is questioning where the difference, if any, is hiding.
