US Department of Justice investigated the relationship between LIV and the former President Donald Trump. The New York Times reported the investigation was focused on sensitive documents Trump brought from the White House to his Mar-a-Lago residence.
The Department is investigating whether Trump tried to hide the documents, and who might have had access. Since then, the investigation has expanded to include LIV Golf – a Saudi sponsored professional golf club who play at some of Trump’s golf courses.
The investigation has raised questions about Trump’s relationship to LIV Golf, and whether this connection had any impact on the family business.
The enterprise, backed financially by a Saudi Arabian branch, has plans to visit at least three more sites in 2019. In 2022, it will stage events on two Trump properties. Other investigations are underway in the golf industry, including the DOJ inquiry into LIV.
LIV Golf under DOJ investigation
The DOJ’s investigation into LIV Golf centers on former President Trump’s ties with the family business. The Department of Justice issued a subpoena to obtain documents related to interactions between Donald Trump, former US president, and LIV golf. This company held golf tournaments in 2022 at two of Donald Trump’s properties.
The DOJ investigates Trump’s business. Although it’s unclear how this LIV Golf investigation relates to the broader probe, the fact LIV Golf has been under scrutiny indicates that certain aspects of Trumps business dealings have been examined.
According to Golf Digest the DOJ’s investigation into LIV Golf was part of a larger inquiry into practices that affect the golf industry. According to reports, a DOJ investigation was launched in July last year, which included the PGA Tour, Augusta National, USGA and PGA of America.
Members of Congress criticized the Justice Department, asking why it was involved.
The DOJ is investigating the former president Donald Trump’s involvement in the project because LIV Golf has connections with the Trump family business. The DOJ is investigating the former president Donald Trump’s involvement with the project because of LIV Golf’s connections to the Trump family company.
It is evident that, regardless of the result, the DOJ will be taking a closer view at the industry in order to eliminate any anticompetitive behaviors. LIV Golf will return to Tulsa next week for a tournament. All eyes will be on this venture and its impact on the industry.
