Donald Trump to pay $2 million to settle New York Attorney General civil lawsuit against Trump Found

Source: CNN

(CNN)A judge ordered President Donald Trump to pay $2 million to a collection of nonprofit organizations as part of a settlement with the New York state attorney general's office to resolve a civil lawsuit that alleged "persistent" violations of charities law that included unlawful coordination with the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, according to a court filing Thursday.

Filed in June 2018, the lawsuit alleged that the President and his three eldest children -- Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric -- violated federal and state campaign finance laws and abused the Donald J. Trump Foundation's tax-exempt status. According to the lawsuit, the Trumps allowed the foundation to be used "as little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump's business and political interests."

The settlement comes in the wake of an agreement by the foundation in December to dissolve under judicial supervision.

Attorneys for the charity had said that "all of the money raised by the Foundation went to charitable causes to assist those most in need," and accused the attorney general's office of political motivation, citing campaign trail comments made by Attorney General Letitia James, who took office in January.

9. They'll get paid.

They way it works is you don't dismiss the suit until you get the check. In Trump's case, I'd make that until mthe check clears.

3. Is it known yet if Trump and his spawn are banned from serving on NY nonprofit boards?

That kind of judgement would be good to have. "How can you trust this man with the presidency if he's not trusted with a nonprofit?"

4. I think there's language like that in the agreement to shut down the foundation, but not sure...

...what exactly it said or who it included.

7. Yes. Here it is.

The Attorney Generalís Office, led by Underwood after Schneiderman stepped down, filed suit in June 2018. In addition to shutting down the foundation, the lawsuit still seeks $2.8 million in restitution plus penalties and a 10-year prohibition on Trump or his adult children running charities in New York.

15. I wasn't sure if that had happened, though

That's from December 2018, and talks about "still seeking" $2.8 million and the ban. If it's now $2 million, that implies it wasn't the final decision, so we can't be certain if the ban is part of this too.

10. What seems to be the problem?

Attorneys for the charity had said that "all of the money raised by the Foundation went to charitable causes to assist those most in need," and accused the attorney general's office of political motivation

Nobody's more "needy" than Donald J. Trump! /sarcasm

11. I guess

That unlawfully funneling money from "charities" to your presidential election campaign doesn't rise to the level of impeachment either, right?
