New York sues Trump Foundation, alleging 'extensive' lawbreaking

His twittertantrum about this this morning is a thing to behold. And of course:

Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump spoke to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi before his charity cut a 2013 check to support her re-election effort, but his campaign said Tuesday the two never discussed whether her office would join a lawsuit against Trump University.
A charitable foundation paying a political campaign is charity even without the obvious conflict of interest?

Trump seeks distance from donation supporting Florida AG Pam Bondi - Orlando Sentinel

Quote:
New York's attorney general announced on Thursday she was suing the Trump Foundation, as well as Donald Trump and his children, alleging "extensive and persistent" lawbreaking.

Barbara Underwood said the charitable foundation had engaged in "unlawful political co-ordination" designed to influence the 2016 election.

The lawsuit seeks to dissolve the foundation, Ms Underwood said.

The foundation denied the charges, calling them politically motivated.

In a statement, Ms Underwood said Mr Trump had illegally instructed the foundation to provide support to his presidential campaign by using the foundation's name and funds it raised to promote the campaign.

The petition also claims that Mr Trump used charitable assets to pay off legal obligations, to promote his own businesses and to purchase personal items.

The attorney general is also seeking to bar the president and three of his adult children, Donald Jr, Eric and Ivanka, from serving on the board of any New York-based charity, "in light of misconduct and total lack of oversight".

The president hit back at the lawsuit on Twitter, saying that "sleazy New York Democrats" were "doing everything they can to sue me". He vowed he would not settle the case.

A great comment from a friend at coffee this morning. Along the lines of:

A thousand investigations into the Clinton Foundation and the result was Benghazilike. One investigation into the Trump Foundation and bingo.

Anyone who has or supports a charity is an ignorant idiot. I did not do hard toil all of my life just to give it away. I did hard toil all of my life to buy the finer things that life has to offer.

Reports are that Don the Con used the foundation as his personal piggy bank. That is illegal.

He was involved in a lawsuit with Palm Beach. He lost and the settlement ordered him to give $100,000 to a charity. He paid it out of his charitable foundation. The guy is nothing but sleaze.

Quote:
Some of those expenditures, uncovered by The Post, were cited in the lawsuit, including a $100,000 payment to settle legal claims against Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida; $158,000 to resolve a suit over a prize for a hole-in-one contest at Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, New York; and $10,000 to buy a 6-foot (1.8-meter) portrait of Trump at a charity auction.

Note the bottom of the check and wait for the Trumpanzees to tell us how that's not using his foundation for political purposes.

Is it true that in New York houses are heated by STEAM HEATING ???
That's horrible...
------------------------
In Russia, such heating was banned in the USSR in the early 20th century
Steam heat is incredible and very efficient.
