NY attorney general sues Trump Foundation, alleges illegal self-dealing

Donald Trump NY attorney general sues Trump Foundation, alleges illegal self-dealing

The New York state attorney general's office on Thursday sued the Donald J. Trump Foundation and its directors, accusing the charity of unlawfully coordinating with Mr. Trump's presidential campaign.

Donald Trump hit back at the lawsuit on Twitter, saying that "sleazy NY democrats" were "doing everything they can to sue me on a foundation that took in $18,800,000 and gave out to charity more money than it took in, $19,200,000". I won't settle this case!,' he wrote.

The suit alleges "unlawful political coordination" with Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, "self-dealing" that benefits Trump's businesses and other violations of the law.

Trump slammed the suit in series of tweets made nearly immediately after knowledge of it became public.

The New York attorney general on Thursday filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump, his children and the Donald J. Trump foundation, alleging his charity engaged in "illegal conduct", Reuters reports. Decisions were made without "adequate consideration" and assets were misused to pay off legal obligations, promote Trump hotels, buy personal items and support Trump's campaign, according to the suit.

Schneiderman resigned last month after allegations that he abused women he had dated; he denied the claims.

"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.

Underwood is also seeking restitution of the $2.8 million she says was paid to the presidential campaign and penalties. She also asked that Trump be banned from heading any other nonprofits in NY for the next decade.

Nevertheless, as NY attorney general Ms Underwood has significant investigatory and prosecutorial power - and if she starts flushing the bushes of some of Mr Trump's more questionable charitable activities, there's no telling what she might turn up. Underwood said she has sent letters to the Internal Revenue Service and Federal Election Commission for further investigation.

The foundation pressed the NY attorney general to withdraw the lawsuit so that it could dissolve and make remaining donations it proposed as a part of that plan.
