Two lawmakers demanded that the FBI and the Federal Election Commission open an investigation into whether the Trump campaign violated federal law by spending hundreds of millions of reelection money through a company that White House advisor Jared Kushner created.

The lawmakers' letter comes hours after Insider reported that the Trump campaign had spent $617 million through a company that the president's son-in-law helped establish in 2018.

In the letter obtained exclusively by Insider, Reps. Ted Lieu of California and Kathleen Rice of New York noted that campaign finance violations above $25,000 are felonies punishable by up to five years in prison.
