Five takeaways from New York's Trump Foundation lawsuit
New York Attorney General sues Donald J Trump Foundation
17 June, 2018, 12:43
The lawsuit wants millions of dollars in restitution to ny state and wants Trump and his three eldest children - Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric - barred to working with or any other involvement with any charities in ny or other states that have ties to any state charities.
President Donald Trump is declaring that he "won't settle" a lawsuit from the NY attorney general alleging that the Trump Foundation engaged in pattern of illegal self-dealing.
The lawsuit also claims Trump used the foundation illegally to raise $2.8 million to support his presidential campaign in a televised fundraiser on January 28, 2016 - held as he skipped a Republican presidential primary debate.
The lawsuit seeks to ban the president from serving as the director of any NY non-profit for 10 years, and seeks similar one-year bans for each of his children, who serve on the foundation's board.
Underwood charged in the lawsuit that the Trump Foundation engaged in "extensive unlawful political coordination" with Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. These include a $100,000 payment to settle legal claims against Mr. Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort; a $158,000 payment to settle legal claims against his Trump National Golf Club in 2008 from a hole-in-one tournament; and a $10,000 payment at a charity auction to purchase a painting of Mr. Trump that was displayed at the Trump National Doral in Miami.
The lawsuit seeks to dissolve the foundation, Ms Underwood said.
"This is not how private foundations should function and my office intends to hold the foundation and its directors accountable for its misuse of charitable assets", she said in a statement.
Taking an aim at the lawsuit, Trump swiftly took to Twitter and called it an attempt by the "sleazy New York Democrats" to damage him by suing the foundation, adding not to settle the case.
Some $2.8 million went to the foundation, the lawsuit said, and the foundation wrongly ceded control of those funds to Trump's campaign staff, who wrongly disbursed grants at campaign rallies for Trump's political benefit.
Foundation attorney Sheri Dillon and a Trump Organization spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
The attorney general's office has also sent referral letters to the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission for further investigation and legal action. Trump had already pledged to dismantle it. Sanders also blasted Underwood's predecessor - Eric Schneiderman, who resigned last month - for being a longtime Trump antagonist.
"Mr Trump ran the Foundation according to his whim, rather than the law", the lawsuit said.
The lawsuit said Corey Lewandowski, then Trump's campaign manager directed some of the funds to be disbursed in Iowa shortly before its caucuses, where voters from the state gather in the first electoral competition to choose parties' presidential nominees.
The Trump Foundation has been in legal limbo since after the election, when the president wanted to dissolve it amid growing controversy about its practices.
