New York Sues to Dissolve Donald J. Trump Foundation

New York Sues to Dissolve Donald J. Trump Foundation New York Sues to Dissolve Donald J. Trump Foundation

New York's attorney general on Thursday sued the Donald J. Trump Foundation, President Donald Trump, and others, and is seeking to dissolve the foundation after what she called its "persistent illegal conduct" over more than a decade.

"The Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to non-profits, regardless of their goal of legality", Underwood said in a statement. The attorney general's office seeks to dissolve the foundation and asks for $2.8 million in restitution.

NY is also seeking $2.8 million of restitution plus penalties, a 10-year ban on Trump serving as a director of a NY nonprofit, and one-year bans for his children Donald Jr, Eric and Ivanka.

The lawsuit alleges that the foundation paid $100,000 to settle legal claims against Mr Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort, $158,000 to settle claims against one of his gold clubs, and $10,000 to purchase a painting of Mr Trump to hang at another of his gold clubs.

President Donald Trump's charitable foundation has persistently broken state and federal laws with improper political activity, self-dealing and failing to follow basic fiduciary obligations, NY said in a lawsuit seeking to dissolve the organization. "I won't settle this case!".

She's seeking to ban Trump from serving as a director of a NY not-for-profit for 10 years.

The New York AG found multiple instances of alleged self-dealing within the Trump Foundation, as Trump signed off on using charity money to pay off lawsuits against his businesses - and even to buy a $10,000 portrait of himself. Allegations of misdeeds connected to the Trump Foundation had swirled during the 2016 presidential elections, but the topic had been overshadowed during the early days of the Trump presidency. That may be about to change.

The lawsuit deepens the legal woes of the president, adding to U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of his campaign, a federal investigation in NY of his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen, and civil suits related to hush-money deals signed on his behalf.

At the very least, it appears the Trump world's celebrations of former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's disgrace were a bit premature.
