New York files lawsuit against Trump and family

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

New York's attorney general on Thursday sued the Donald J. Trump Foundation, President Donald Trump, and others, and is seeking to dissolve the foundation after what she called its "persistent illegal conduct" over more than a decade.

Prosecutors charge Trump with repeatedly misusing the nonprofit to pay off his businesses' creditors, to decorate one of his golf clubs and to stage a multimillion dollar giveaway at his 2016 campaign events. I won't settle this case!,' he wrote.

The lawsuit seeks to dissolve the foundation, Ms Underwood said.

Sitting in the second row (L-R) are Tiffany Trump, Lara Yunaska, and Eric Trump and Donald Trump, Jr. But those presidential powers couldn't be applied to state level prosecutions such as the one in NY.

'The sleazy New York Democrats, and their now disgraced (and run out of town) A.G. Eric Schneiderman, are 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.

Interestingly, Microsoft could also be working on new Surface-branded headset to be released later this year or early next year. According to ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, the product won't launch until mid-2019 but will be heavily redesigned.

The lawsuit alleges that Trump Foundation raised in excess of $2.8 million 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, with the foundation raising funds from the public at the nationally televised fundraiser Trump held in lieu of participating in the presidential primary debate in Des Moines, Iowa, on January 28, 2016.

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 purchase of the painting was an example of one of "at least five self-dealing transactions", the statement said, which violate tax regulations on non-profit charities.

US President Donald Trump is joined by US First Lady Melania Trump (2nd R front), his daughter Ivanka Trump (2nd L front) and her husband Jared Kushner (L front) during the presidential inaugural parade on January 20, 2017 in Washington, DC. Allegations of misdeeds connected to the Trump Foundation had swirled during the 2016 presidential elections, but the topic had been overshadowed during the early days of the Trump presidency. Schneiderman ordered the foundation to stop fundraising in NY.
