    NY State Dissolves Trump Foundation Due to "Shocking Pattern of Illegality"

    In any other timeline, this would be the biggest political story in years. The NY AG is essentially calling the president and his immediate family criminals. And their investigation will continue.

    A.G. Underwood Announces Stipulation Dissolving Trump Foundation Under Judicial Supervision, With AG Review Of Recipient Charities

    Our petition detailed a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation – including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more. This amounted to the Trump Foundation functioning as little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump’s business and political interests...

    This is an important victory for the rule of law, making clear that there is one set of rules for everyone. We’ll continue to move our suit forward to ensure that the Trump Foundation and its directors are held to account for their clear and repeated violations of state and federal law.

    Of course, some will be fine with all this because they're doing well personally.

    He seems like such a genuinely charitable, let-me-make-the-world-a-better-place kind of guy. Mind blown.

    Donald Trump stole $7 from his charity to cover the Boy Scouts admission fee for his son.

    This is hardly the most egregious abuse of money from his foundation, but I just feel like it perfectly captures the utter pettiness of this family.

    Discussion just now saying that the Trump family agreed to the settlement to avoid the civil discovery process that would open them up to divulging more incriminating information. I believe that the settlement as well does not preclude the the NYAG from pursuing criminal charges in the case.

    This becomes and indicator that the Trump ponzi scheme will be taken apart over the years following his Presidency!

    Wow. It's the entitlement mentality turned on its head. If someone steals $70M (Ponzi scheme wealth manager, et.al.), I can at least understand the reason for it. The guy's a thief and is evil or gave in to temptation or whatever. But, for a "billionaire" to steal $7 - and petty is the perfect description - just makes one a thief and an a-hole. Totally no reason for it. Just an entitled, petty a-hole.

    Yeah, but the Trump version of the Godfather would just have the Don childishly mocking Moe Greene, et.al. via twitter. Movie wouldn't be as good.

    and yet it is totally unsurprising with this family.

    Just went to Costco and got enough popcorn to last a while.
    Maybe we’ll hear from all the “doing so well” Trumpers again around, oh, maybe 2020.....

    The more disgusting his behavior and scams, the better his base likes him. They truly are in a "burn it all down" mode.

    is this the place where I mention that the State of New York feels that the people running this country are unfit to run a charity?
