BREAKING: CNN, NY Attorney General Files Lawsuit Against Trump Foundation, Charity







report (WaPo): https://t.co/9Rw5uU7cbp

Matea Gold @mateagold 15m15 minutes ago
Underwood also asks that Trump be banned from leading any other New York nonprofit for 10 years — seeking to apply a penalty usually reserved for the operators of small-time charity frauds to the president of the United States.

"The Attorney General’s investigation found that Trump Foundation raised in excess of $2.8 million in a manner designed to influence the 2016 presidential election at the direction and under the control of senior leadership of the Trump pres. campaign." https://t.co/9JvRd4GA0c

"In violation of state and federal law, senior Trump campaign staff, including Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski, dictated the timing, amounts, and recipients of grants by the Foundation ..."

10. NYAG Barbara Underwood:

Replacing Schneiderman: A ‘Brilliant’ Lawyer Who Worked Behind the Scenes

Despite a life of firsts — first in her law-school class, the first woman to serve as the nation’s solicitor general and now the first to serve as New York State’s attorney general — Barbara D. Underwood has spent most of her career as a No. 2.

Working largely behind the scenes, she has served as the big-thinker-in-residence for a succession of bosses. In the 1980s, Ms. Underwood worked for the Brooklyn district attorney Elizabeth Holtzman, who recently called her “one of the most brilliant people I’ve ever met.” Ten years later, she served as a top deputy to Zachary W. Carter when he was the United States attorney in Brooklyn.

And soon enough Ms. Underwood went on to take a job as the chief lieutenant to Seth P. Waxman, the United States solicitor general under President Bill Clinton. “A thousand people asked for the job,” Mr. Waxman said. “I chose her.”

Underwood 73, has spent a decade as the office’s top appellate lawyer.
She replaces AG Eric Schneiderman.

as the successor to the Trump Family grifting empire. Hopefully all he'll get are some rusted leg irons and the framed picture of his great-great-grandfather's whorehouse in B.C. Canada, donated by Prime Minister Trudeau. Barron might be the first Trump to actually have to work for a living. What a disgrace!

How will they arrest 45 if he refuses to leave the WH?

It would take an impeachment and conviction but what is the probability of that?

Question: if the Dems were to gain all their Senate and House Seats would it be enough to have a two-thirds majority?

There's going to be a constitutional crisis one way or another. Trump will continue to degrade governmental institutions.

22. Keep in mind, right now this is just a civil suit requesting

restitution, damages, the dissolving of the Trump foundation and temporary bans on any of the Trumps from opening charities for a certain period.

Let's hope this eventually gets referred for State criminal charges due to tax crimes and campaign finance violations.

31. Just another example

Of how trump accused others (Hillary and Bill Clinton) of corruption with no finding of anything against them, and now he is getting sued , and criminal charges may be next. This is trump , a corrupt , and lying criminal con man conning people out of anything he can get. And his claims he didn't conspire with putin and others to steal e mails, and corrupt the last election mean nothing. His supporters must now send in more money to his campaign , so he can funnel it into his pockets to use on his lavish lifestyle while feeding them more BS. He's an orange PT Barnum , and has found conning them with his propaganda is working.

38. Who'da thunk?

If you collect money for "charity" that you can't write checks out of the same account for your personal bills and campaigning?

Additionally, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, which has come under previous scrutiny for self-dealing and advancing the interests of its namesake rather than those of charity, apparently used the Eric Trump Foundation to funnel $100,000 in donations into revenue for the Trump Organization.


https://www.forbes.com/sites/danalexander/2017/06/06/how-donald-trump-shifted-kids-cancer-charity-money-into-his-business/#b21302c6b4a3

Or even give to a different charity...

The attorney general, a Democrat who has publicly opposed the president’s policies, is also investigating the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

“If you are raising money for X, and you give it to Y, that is fraud, even if Y is a charity,” says James Fishman, a former assistant attorney general for the state of New York who now teaches at Pace University’s law school. “If I’m writing a check for somebody, and you give it to somebody else, I mean that is fraudulent.”
