When it rains, it pours.

Courtesy of CBS News:

President Donald Trump’s foundation served as a personal piggy bank for his businesses, legal bills and presidential campaign, New York’s attorney general said Wednesday as she sued the charity, Trump and three of his children.

The Donald J. Trump Foundation “was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality,” Democratic attorney general Barbara Underwood said as she sued to dissolve the foundation and seek $2.8 million in restitution.

The lawsuit says the foundation illegally helped support the Republican’s campaign by raising money at a nationally televised fundraiser in January 2016, then allowing campaign staffers to dictate how the money was spent in grants.

Though the spokeswoman for the foundation did not respond publicly, Donald Trump certainly did. 


Okay, how many lawsuits is this now?

Reporting on this “charity” of Trump’s has been brutal.

According to various news outlets, Trump has been using this slush fund for years to make himself appear to be philanthropic while in fact, he has been using other people’s money to create that impression. 

I would suggest that the New York Attorney General’s office has a very strong case.

And one that I bet Robert Mueller watches closely.

      Well in that case, we’d all better start singing God Save the Queen because most of use speak English.

    “blamed Bill and Hillary Clinton for supposedly giving President Donald Trump and his family the idea to start their own sham charity.” ” Kennedy said that Trump likely saw what the Clintons had done and decided he wanted to do it himself.

    “The Clintons had a brilliant money-laundering scheme in the Clinton Foundation,” And it’s no surprise that any other politician would want to do the exact same thing, and concentrate money and power. But now, the cat’s out of the bag. Because no mis-doing was really pinned to the Clinton Foundation formally, are they now going after the Clinton Foundation?””

    ‘Persistent Illegal Conduct’
    “Mr. Trump ran the Foundation according to his whim, rather than the law,”
    “The Trump Foundation issued a statement criticizing the lawsuit as “politics at its very worst” and accusing the attorney general of holding its $1.7 million in remaining funds “hostage for political gain.””
    “The lawsuit filed in the state Supreme Court in Manhattan is seeking $2.8 million of restitution plus penalties, a 10-year ban on Trump serving as a director of a New York nonprofit, and one-year bans for his children.
    “As our investigation reveals, the Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose of legality,” Underwood said in a statement.
    “That is not how private foundations should function.””

    Wasn’t that the “charity” that bought the T.rump portrait for T.Rump to display in his office, and a footbaall helmet – same display location? And isn’t that the chairty that didn’t receive any actual donations from T.Rump? And isn’t that the charity that held all it’s fundraisers at T.Rump properties at full price?

    Donald Trump and his administration will rot in hell for separating children from their mothers. And for saying the bible told them so. They, the new republicans said Hillary and Podesta were running some kind of phedophile ring and yet they have warehoused children. What in the hell is happening to those children? And who in the hell is watching them? Bet you there are phedophiles babysitting as we speak.
