GOP nominee Donald Trump is likely not going to be too pleased with the actions of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who recently sent a “Notice of Violation” to the real estate mogul concerning the eligibility of the Trump Foundation to fundraise in the state.
This latest incident comes hot on the heels of tax documents released over the weekend that indicate Trump didn’t pay taxes for a period of 18 years after suffering a $915 million loss. Of course, liberal media tried to spin this as if he were doing something illegal, but thus far, it seems his methods were within the bounds of the tax code.
TheBlaze is reporting, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat, launched an investigation of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s foundation following reports that the candidate personally benefited from the its spending.
Schneiderman’s office sent the Trump Foundation a “Notice of Violation” dated Friday and publicly released Monday, demanding that the organization “immediately cease soliciting contributions or engaging in any other fundraising activity in New York.” It also instructed the Trump Foundation to notify any third-party organizations seeking funds on their behalf to notify those organizations they must cease doing so in New York.
The attorney general’s office said that the law requires a different registration than the foundation has for those that solicit more than $25,000 a year from the public.
James Sheehan with the attorney general’s office said the foundation must comply with their instructions and answer demands for all delinquent financial reports within 15 days or they “shall be deemed a continuing fraud upon the people of the state of New York.”
Folks at the Trump campaign have stated the foundation fully intends to cooperate with the investigation.
Trump has been running for president for over a year and this is just now coming out? Hillary and her fellow lefties must be shaking in their boots in order to pull it stops like this.
If only these individuals truly cared about justice and fairness, because if they did, surely they would desire to hold their own nominee accountable for the lives she lost in Benghazi, for the 30,000 emails deleted that contained sensitive material or the billions laundered through the Clinton Foundation, right?
Nah, of course not.
