Default New York attorney general sues Trump Foundation

New York attorney general sues Trump Foundation

The New York attorney general on Thursday sued President Donald Trump's charitable foundation along with its directors -- the President, his sons Eric and Donald Jr. and daughter Ivanka -- alleging they violated state and federal charities law.

Attorney General Barbara Underwood alleges a pattern of persistent illegal conduct over more than a decade that includes extensive unlawful political coordination with the Trump presidential campaign.

"As our investigation reveals, the Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his business to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality," Underwood said.

The attorney general is asking a court to dissolve the Trump Foundation and wants $2.8 million in restitution plus additional penalties.
Can you see the White House back in there? With all those hanging vines, trees, stagnant water...

It will be an interesting case to monitor for sure. I also noted the following in the OP:


Quote:
"The Foundation has donated over $19 million to worthy charitable causes -- more than it even 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. The Foundation currently has $1.7 million remaining which the NYAG has been holding hostage for political gain. This is unconscionable -- particularly because the Foundation previously announced its intention to dissolve more than a year and a half ago.

If the above is true - and provable - I'm wondering how it will impact the facts of the case. Are these points that impact the alleged wrongdoing? I've had little experience with non-profits and absolutely none with non-profits of that size, so I have no idea if the deposits to the TF checkbook can legally offset the withdrawals. I guess we shall see? Non?

But, of course Hillary has to be locked up for Trump's crimes... is that not how he has operated his entire financial career: look up his bankruptcies of a plethora of ventures, also look up his repayment of owed debts [hint this can be found in your local library under the section: Fiction].
