Source: the hill

New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) said in a filing Thursday that President Trump misused his charitable foundation to assist his 2016 campaign, The Associated Press reported.

James is suing the Trump Foundation for $2.8 million in restitution and seeking an order banning the president and his three eldest children from running any charities in the state for 10 years.

The lawsuit reportedly cites insider testimony and emails as part of its evidence.

The Trump Foundation shut down and distributed about $1.7 million in remaining funds to nonprofits in December in a court-supervised process.
............................................

At a rally around that time, Trump called for supporters to donate to veterans' charities. The suit alleges the foundation acted as a pass-through for people who heeded his call for donations.................................

2. One more cheat among the numerous that allowed him to steal an election.

An advantage that none of his honest opponents would even consider.


With all the enormous damage and social engineering it has enabled.

When do "we the people" get any justice for what has been done?
I suspect, never.

Whats a couple million, or even every penny the scoundrel has?
It will not reverse the damage.

6. Think about this: tRUMP bragged he was paying for his campaign...but do

you believe this cheapskate, KKKon man grifter would EVER use any of his own money to do this? Many claim he never expected to win, (so therefore he could not get reimbursed as he did. So....where was the $$$ coming from to "self finance" his campaign? That is a money trail I hope Mueller, NYSAG and others have followed.

Just sayin...

12. Nail the idiot to the wall and indict him and his org and his kids. Don't waste time. Either...

that, in order to not unduly influence the upcoming 2020 elections, don't charge them (rumps) with a crime (or not all of them) and start releasing real tidbits of news to the media, about their ongoing fraud, crimes, cheating, etc. This news / information isn't covered by presidential immunity or shouldn't be either.
