New York Attorney General Sues Trump Foundation

“The sleazy New York Democrats, and their now disgraced (and run out of town) A.G. Eric Schneiderman, are doing everything they can to sue me”- President Donald Trump

On Thursday, the New York Attorney General filed a lawsuit on Thursday firing directly at the Donald J. Trump Foundation. According to the Attorney General, “The petition filed today alleges a pattern of persistent illegal conduct, occurring over more than a decade, that includes extensive unlawful political coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing transactions to benefit Mr. Trump’s personal and business interests, and violations of basic legal obligations for non-profit foundations.”

Charities, often funded with money that has been deducted from donors’ income taxes, aren’t permitted to engage in politics, however the petition asserts that President Trump’s was often improperly used to settle legal claims against his various businesses, even spending $10,000 on a portrait of Mr. Trump that was hung at one of his golf clubs.

A Trump Foundation representative stated to CNN that it was just bad politics, and “The Foundation has donated over $19 million to worthy charitable causes — more than it ever received. The President himself — or through his companies — has contributed more than $8 million. The reason the Foundation was able to donate more than it took in is because it had little to no expenses. This is unheard of for a charitable foundation.”

Underwood also reportedly sent letters to the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission asking those agencies to investigate possible violations of federal law.
