New York Attorney General Sues Trump Foundation

Trump is returning from a vacation to Bedminster, N.J.

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood is suing the Donald J. Trump Foundation and its board of directors over what she calls "extensive and persistent violations of federal law", her office announced Thursday.

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.

In a statement, Ms Underwood said Mr Trump had illegally instructed his foundation to provide support to his presidential campaign by using the foundation's name and funds it raised to promote the campaign. "This is not how private foundations should function, and my office intends to hold the foundation and its directors accountable for its misuse of charitable assets". Stay tuned for updates.

Rebel Wilson has Australian defamation payout slashed
Wilson said on Twitter the night before the judgment that she had won the case regardless of the damages awarded. It also reduced her non-economic losses by AU$50,000 ($37,800) to AU$600,000 ($453,600).

The president quickly took to Twitter to respond to the accusations, hitting out at "The sleazy New York Democrats" and vowing not to settle the case.

"In 2016, the board knowingly allowed the foundation to be coopted by Trump's presidential campaign", the suit says. I won't settle this case!,' he wrote. The suit seeks $2.8 million in restitution and the dissolution of the foundation.

The state's investigation, which stemmed from the Post's 2016 reporting on the charity, found that the Trump family allegedly violated a law that requires tax-exempt foundations to benefit the public good rather than the founders privately. "Now he resigned his office in disgrace, and his disciples brought it when we would not settle". According to the investigation, the Trump Foundation also entered into at least five self-dealing transactions that were unlawful because they benefited Trump or businesses he controls.

These included a $100,000 payment to settle legal claims against the Mar-A-Lago resort; a $158,000 payment to settle legal claims against his Trump National Golf Club in 2008 from a hole-in-one tournament; and a $10,000 payment at a charity auction to purchase a painting of Mr Trump that was displayed at the Trump National Doral in Miami. But those presidential powers couldn't be applied to state level prosecutions such as the one in NY.
