Finally! Trump Family & Their Charity Sued By New York AG For 'Persistent Illegal Conduct'!

no title
With all the other Donald Trump scandals, everyone forgets about the cruelest — his charity scam.
For years the Trump family has allegedly been using the Trump Foundation to steal from real charities, and it’s disgusting.
But the New York State Attorney General’s office didn’t. They announced on Thursday they’re suing the Trump Foundation for what they call “a pattern of persistent illegal conduct.”

The AG has named the President but also Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Eric Trump in their lawsuit.
See the accusations against the Trump family (below)! The AG’s office writes:

“The petition filed today alleges a pattern of persistent illegal conduct, occurring over more than a decade, that includes extensive unlawful political coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing transactions to benefit Mr. Trump’s personal and business interests, and violations of basic legal obligations for non-profit foundations.”
“The Attorney General’s investigation found that the Trump Foundation raised in excess of $2.8 million in a manner designed to influence the 2016 presidential election at the direction and under the control of senior leadership of the Trump presidential campaign.”

Seriously important note: while the big focus is on the money given to the Trump campaign (because Dishonest Don isn’t as rich as he pretends to be and could never actually finance his own run), remember they’ve allegedly been at this for OVER 10 YEARS!
AG Barbara D. Underwood, who has been in the office just weeks now, had this to say:

“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 or legality. This is not how private foundations should function and my office intends to hold the foundation accountable for its misuse of charitable assets.”

New York state is demanding restitution of the money, fines, and dissolution of the Trump Foundation completely — with Trump not allowed to start another charity for 10 years and his kids for 1 year each.
Frankly, for people stealing from charity, that sounds light to us.
They are also referring their info to the F.E.C. and the I.R.S., which should have a lot to say. Hey, maybe Trump’s taxes will finally be under audit! Ha!

President Trump has already responded on Twitter, once again making this about politics instead of, you know, CRIME.

In case you hadn’t heard, previous NY attorney general Eric Schneiderman resigned after sexual misconduct allegations from four women. There are 19 allegations against Trump. He’s just ignoring them.

Hey. Asshole. You don’t want to get treated like a criminal? Two options:
2.) Don’t run for public office where the level of scrutiny on your criminal financial dealings is a bit higher than that of reality TV star.
We are so glad this is finally getting the spotlight.
Oh, and BTW — Trump can’t pardon himself from a lawsuit.
