New York files suit against President Trump, alleging his charity engaged in ‘illegal conduct’

Postby dbackjon » Thu Jun 14, 2018 9:54 am

Lock the entire Trump Crime Organization up.

Siphoning donations to his charity to his campaign, to pay legal bills, using millions donated for Vets for personal use...

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... c4bfd61f77


The New York attorney general filed suit against President Trump and his three eldest children Thursday, alleging “persistently illegal conduct” at the president’s personal charity, saying Trump repeatedly misused 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.

In the suit, filed Thursday morning, attorney general Barbara Underwood asked a state judge to dissolve the Donald J. Trump Foundation. She asked that its remaining $1 million in assets be distributed to other charities and that Trump be forced to pay at least $2.8 million in restitution and penalties.

Underwood said that oversight of spending at Trump’s foundation was so loose that its board of directors hadn’t met in 19 years, and its official treasurer wasn’t even aware he was on the board.

In addition, in 2012, a Trump golf club agreed to pay $158,000 to settle a lawsuit with a man who was denied a $1 million hole-in-one prize during a tournament at the club. The Trump Foundation paid the money instead of the club, Underwood said.

I looked this up and it gets worse:

The contest's rules stipulated that the shot had to travel at least 150 yards, and according to The Post, tournament organizers had set up the tee short of the mark.

1. Golfer makes hole-in-one during contest.
2. Trump organization says tee, which they set up, is short of the mark. They tell golfer to pound dirt.
3. Golfer sues.
4. Trump/golfer settle for way less ($158K).
5. Trump pays out of "charitable" Trump Foundation.

:lol:

I wasn't there and never heard this story before, but your list of 1-5 is some shitty reporting there Tripp. NYT says golfer was playing in a charity event. That means the charity either paid for, or had somebody donate a Hole-in-One insurance policy for $1M (they cost a couple hundred bucks). The policies all have stipulations on yardage. The longer the distance, the cheaper the premium. Whomever set up the tees **** up, no doubt. That's probably why he sued the club (also because the club and Trump have the money). So it wasn't really the Trump course offering the $1M.

Just thought you'd like some insight on more of the story... from SIX years ago. :lol:

Trip’s version is funnier, and this website is about the funny.

I choose Trip’s flawed version over your reasoned one.

A traitor is one who commits treason. Treason has a very narrow and specific definition.

Exactly how have I supported treason?

You Trump Zombies need to wake up. Trump is corrupt. He is way more corrupt than Hillary Clinton ever was. And you've got your heads up his rectum.

Less than 7% of the Clinton Crime Family Foundation's donations go to charitable causes. They fund private planes, weddings, expensive NYC apartments, etc. for the Clinton crime family.

Of course, not all of the donations were actually donated. Haiti didn't make a donation, but their money sure as hell ended up with the Clintons.

You might also want to question the inflow of money from Russia after the Uranium One deal.

The Glorious Confederacy was not guilty of treason. They simply left the United States, as was their right. The Glorious Confederacy is guilty only of defending their homes against an illegal war initiated by Tyrant Lincoln.
