New York Attorney General Sues Trump, His Children & Trump Foundation

New York sues Trump Foundation for 'illegal conduct'

New York's attorney general is suing Donald Trump, his children and the Trump Foundation, alleging what she called "extensive and persistent violations of state and federal law".

Prosecutors charge Trump with repeatedly misusing the nonprofit to pay off his businesses' creditors, to decorate one of his golf clubs and to stage a multimillion dollar giveaway at his 2016 campaign events. "I won't settle this case!".

The complaint alleges that the charity provided illegal support to Trump's 2016 presidential bid by using public funding to promote his campaign, and that the foundation raised more than $2.8 million to support Trump's campaign.

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 seeks to ban the president from serving as the director of any NY non-profit for 10 years, and seeks similar one year bans for each of his children, who serve on the foundation's board.

Prosecutors also want to bar Trump's three eldest children from the boards of nonprofits based in NY or that operate in NY for one year.

And while purchases have waned as shale production has grown, America is traditionally one of the biggest customers for Saudi oil. US consumption of gasoline in the United States rose to an historic high of 9.88 million bpd last week, according to the EIA.

Barbara Underwood said the charitable foundation had engaged in "unlawful political coordination" created to influence the 2016 election.

"The foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments to not-for-profits from Mr. Trump or the Trump Organization", Underwood said in a 41-page complaint filed in NY state court in Manhattan. Underwood said she has sent letters to the Internal Revenue Service and Federal Election Commission for further investigation.

The purchase of the painting was an example of one of "at least five self-dealing transactions", the statement said, which violate tax regulations on non-profit charities.

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

The Trump Foundation has been in legal limbo since after the election, when the president wanted to dissolve it amid growing controversy about its practices. But the foundation could not legally dissolve while it was under investigation, the NY attorney general ruled.
