Trump's attorneys have admitted that he bought a painting of himself with his foundation's money because no one else bid on it.
The news service said legal experts believe that the New York state investigations into the charitable Trump Foundation will likely expand to the president’s namesake business, the Trump Organization.
For those of us who wish the worst upon Donald Trump and his crime family, some good news occurred yesterday. Due to actions of the State of New York the possibility of Trump dying penniless just became very real.
In June the attorney general’s office had originally filed suit with allegations that the foundation — run by Donald Trump and his children — had violated numerous New York state laws. The lawsuit claimed that the Trump Foundation had broken New York’s charities laws to illegally provide funding for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
CNN has reported that New York state prosecutors have asked to meet with Michael Cohen’s attorney. This shows that the State of New York is not waiting for Bob Mueller or other federal law enforcement authorities to pursue criminal investigations against Donald Trump or his children.
Despite pleas from the president’s attorneys, the Attorney General of New York has pledged to continue with a lawsuit against the president for misusing charitable funds donated to the Trump Foundation. According to her,Trump used the Foundation as a personal piggybank and a source of money to illegally fund his businesses and also his political campaign.
A lawsuit filed back in June by the State of New York has the potential to bring down Donald Trump and his children as it exposes a conspiracy to misuse charitable funds and break multiple laws. This is especially true now that Trump’s financial executive, Allen Weisselberg, is cooperating with prosecutors.
Throughout his career — as he has built a global real estate and branding empire — Donald Trump has had one guiding principle: keep it private.
He has succeeded in doing this for four decades, through multiple bankruptcies and while borrowing literally billions of dollars. He has never had to disclose his personal or business financial information to the public because he has never offered publicly traded stock or debt for investors to purchase.
A dozen public interest organizations are calling on the IRS to investigate the Trump Foundation for criminal violations of the US tax code.
Not only did the "charitable" foundation not do much charity work, but Trump frequently used it to enrich himself, his family members, and his businesses.
Not only has the foundation forked over hundreds of thousands of dollars to non-charitable causes, but Trump himself gave little of his own money to the organization.
"The DJT Foundation, unlike most foundations, never paid fees, rent, salaries or any expenses. 100% of money goes to wonderful charities!"
Despite Trump's emphasis on McMahon's business acumen, the real reasons for the pick are likely more Trumpian than that.
Donald Trump's foundation appears to have done the very thing Trump accused Hillary Clinton of being corrupt over. With the same person. And he did it while running for president.
The office of the New York state attorney general has found that the Trump Foundation violated the state's tax laws and ordered the Republican nominee's foundation to immediately stop fundraising.
Hours before Trump steps on stage to debate Hillary Clinton, a new report raises questions about whether or not Trump used his foundation to avoid paying personal income taxes.
The script has flipped as Hillary Clinton is demanding that Donald Trump releases his tax returns after a new report found that the Republican nominee illegally used funds from his charitable foundation to settle lawsuits.
Pam Bondi was without doubt one of the Trump "pay to playmates" who made Trump “University’s” problems go away.
The media refuses shine a light on real corruption of Trump’s foundation, or report that he admitted guilt in using his foundation illegally.
Hopefully, the rest of the media will follow the MSNBC host's lead and recognize that the real pay-to-play scandal they crave isn't coming from the Clinton Foundation – it's coming from Trump's.
