Guess who got caught with his fingers in the cookie jar?

Is anyone surprised?

The sleaze just oozes.

NEW YORK — A New York judge on Thursday ordered President Donald Trump to pay $2 million to an array of charities to resolve a lawsuit alleging he misused his own charitable foundation to further his political and business interests.

Judge Saliann Scarpulla said Trump breached his fiduciary duty to the Trump Foundation by allowing his campaign staff to plan a fundraiser for veterans’ charities in the run-up to the 2016 Iowa caucuses.

The event, which passed money through Trump’s non-profit, was designed “to further Mr. Trump’s political campaign,” Scarpulla said.

The judge also signed off on agreements reached last month between Trump’s lawyers and the New York attorney general’s office to close the Trump Foundation and distribute about $1.7 million in remaining funds to other nonprofits.
In the agreements, Trump admitted to personally misusing Trump Foundation funds and agreed to pay back $11,525 in the organization’s funds he spent on sports memorabilia and champagne at a charity gala. He also agreed to restrictions on his involvement in other charitable organizations.

He just continues to get away with "murder". He breaks every rule--has all of his life and his "people" just let him do anything he wants.
When is this going to stop?
When is someone going to STOP HIM?
Sleaze doesn't even begin to cover it.

This is something I thought about in the early days when Pelosi finally decided to go after impeachment, do it quickly but with a very narrow scope, just the phone call. This way, rather than have used a shotgun approach in the first place, if it doesn't fly, go to crime #2, then three and all the way down the list that IT so kindly provided us.

Has the Clinton foundation ever been closed down and forced to pay millions for spending charity money for however it pleased?

Ever?
no,
but like 88% of the foundation money goes to actual charity

now I'm kind of surprised that there hasn't been eleventy investigations in that other 12% overhead costs
