BREAKING: Attorney General SHUTS DOWN Trump Foundation Over Felony Fraud (DETAILS)
The New York State Attorney General has just announced a decision over his office’s ongoing investigation into the “charitable foundation” headed by businessman turned Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
And the Trump Foundation has been ordered to cease operations in the state of New York.
As the New York Times reports:
‘The office of New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman has issued a “notice of violation” to Donald J. Trump’s foundation, ordering it to immediately stop soliciting donations in New York.’
This startling announcement comes after revelation upon revelation have come out in recent months over the corrupt financial dealings that Donald Trump carried out through his Foundation.
Trump has repeatedly used Foundation funds to illegally pay off personal debts. The presidential candidate even used hundreds of thousands of dollars in Foundation money for an illegal, under the table “contribution” to the re-election committee for Florida State Attorney General Pam Bondi in 2013.
Bondi at the time was considering launching a state investigation into the real estate mogul’s completely fraudulent educational program termed “Trump University.” After the “donation,” the pending Florida state investigation was dropped.
“Trump University,” while it operated, had, unsurprisingly, nothing to do with a functioning University whatsoever and was proven to be targeting “students” from whom Trump could get the most cash.
New York has long been proceeding with its own investigation into “Trump University,” and recently announced the expansion of that investigation into the allegedly illegal activities of the Trump Foundation, a Foundation which, although it bears his name, has received no funds from Trump whatsoever for years.
And now, the decision has been announced- Donald Trump flagrantly violated New York State law through the Trump Foundation.
Trump’s financial connections only get more shady and corrupt, with the recent revelation that the businessman may not have paid a dime in federal income taxes in decades.
And voters are paying attention to the almost never ending flow of corruption revelations out of the Trump campaign, with the Republican presidential nominee sitting at an about one in four chance of winning the presidency were the election to be held today according to FiveThirtyEight.
