(not a surprise to most of the Care2 community, but it bolsters our resistance!)
In 2016, Trump sought to excuse his foundation’s actions in a letter to the New York attorney general, saying that the Iowa fundraiser was a charity event. “This statement was false,” Underwood wrote, “because, in reality, the Fundraiser was a Trump Campaign event in which the Foundation participated.”

She wrote that Trump had repeatedly signed charity documents saying that nonprofits like his were not allowed to become involved in political campaigns. “Mr. Trump’s wrongful use of the Foundation to benefit his Campaign was willful and knowing,” she wrote.

As president, Trump has repeatedly called for the repeal of the “Johnson Amendment,” a 1954 tax code provision that imposed the ban on political activity by nonprofit groups.

"The New York attorney general on Thursday filed suit against trump and his three eldest children 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."

Awesome, this is GOLD!!!

The link gets strange results from my browser and adblockers, so I'm leery of it. I've had bouts with adware that were pains in the rear in the past when scripts keep running like this site, so I never navigate within them at all.

This is great news! The woman bringing the suit had better watch her back. I's about time Trump be held accountable for his sleazy actions! Thanks Dot.

Thanks and hugs to everyone who embraces the truth about Trump! He may have fooled some of the people, but he has NOT fooled any of YOU!!! with Stars to All ~ Dot

Each person's comments builds up our hope for some kind of fix to this horrible situation, getting more horrible with each relationship Trump makes with another dictator!

Leaving our friends and allies bewildered and in a state of distrust for our nation, and around the world.

Yay! Good news! If anyone knows how corrupt Trump and his family are, it is the state of New York. I am hoping this is finally the start of his long overdue downfall.

0ops~ sorry to Judy, with that link not good. It appears that this scandal is getting a lot of attention now, though, so I'm sure everyone is find a ton of info should they want to learn more. Let's keep praying that the digging goes deeper and the discoveries are overwhelmingly evaluated as criminal activities. I don't believe he was careless enough to leave any prints behind regarding collusion with another country: Russia. That only took the wink of a most subtle eye between such people. Their on the same wave length,... Got to go for now.

Thanks to All !
