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.
