New York AG Sues Trump Family Foundation

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood filed a Lawsuit Thursday against President Trump and Three of his Children: His sons Eric and Donald Jr. and daughter Ivanka, alleging a pattern of Illegal Conduct over a Decade related to his Personal Charity, including Unlawful Political Coordination with his 2016 Presidential Campaign and Self-Dealing Transactions to benefit Trump's Personal and Business Interests.

The Suit before the New York Supreme Court grew out of an Investigation launched by the Democratic Attorney General's Office in June 2016.

It also Seeks Special Proceedings from the Court to dissolve Trump's Charity, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, and obtain $2.8 Million in Restitution and other Penalties.

Referral Letters were also sent today to the Internal Revenue Service and Federal Election Commission raising possible Federal Law Violations.

“As our investigation reveals, the Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality,” Underwood said in a prepared Statement. “This is not how private foundations should function and my office intends to hold the Foundation and its directors accountable for its misuse of charitable assets.”

The Former AG had closed the Foundation from operating in New York for not compiling with New York State Laws when it was originally created.

The Lawsuit calls for the Foundation to be dissolved.
