NY sues Donald Trump foundation for 'persistent illegal conduct'

New York attorney general sues Trump and his children, alleging their charity engaged in 'persistent illegal conduct' New York sues Donald Trump foundation for 'persistent illegal conduct'

New York's attorney general claims President Donald Trump's foundation served as a personal piggy bank for his businesses, legal bills and presidential campaign.

The New York investigation found that the charity raised more than $2.8 million to influence the election in coordination with senior leadership on Trump's campaign.

Trump responded on Twitter, taking aim at former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who resigned after reports of domestic violence abuse, and his successors. "I won't settle this case!" The suit seeks to bar Trump from running a ny non-profit for the next decade, while instituting a one-year ban for Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. "Trump ran the foundation according to whim, rather than law".

The suit also alleges that the Trump charity raised in excess of $2.8m "in a manner created to influence the 2016 presidential election at the direction and under the control of senior leadership of the Trump presidential campaign".

"The president added: ".Schneiderman, who ran the Clinton campaign in NY, never had the guts to bring this ridiculous case, which lingered in their office for nearly 2 years.

Murphy, have been quick to point out that no long-term verification process was included in the agreement. The meeting is seen by North Korea as a way of bringing legitimacy to a nation long regarded as a pariah.

The statement went on: "The prior NYAG, who was recently forced to resign from office in disgrace, made it his stated mission to use this matter to not only advance his own political goals, but also for his own political fundraising". She also asked that Trump be banned from heading any other nonprofits in NY for the next decade.

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.

Underwood is also seeking restitution of the $2.8 million she says was paid to the presidential campaign and penalties.

She also sent referral letters to the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission for possible further action, adding more weight to the legal troubles the president faces.

The lawsuit follows an investigation of the Trump foundation that began in June 2016 under the previous NY attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, who resigned in disgrace in May.
