Grifters Gotta Grift
The Trump Foundation has “agreed to dissolve” itself, in compliance with a lawsuit alleging the charity was being used for President Trump’s personal and political gain.
“The agreement to shut down the Trump Foundation is a significant victory for the attorney general’s office, which sued the charity in June, alleging the president and several of his children used it for their own political benefit. That lawsuit, which seeks millions of dollars in restitution, will continue, even as the foundation agrees to cease existence. …
“‘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,’ [NY AG Barbara] Underwood said in a statement Tuesday.”
So it matriculated to non-existence, just like Trump U, as a criminal enterprise. How many more examples of grifting do we need, Media, before you get around to calling them the Trump Crime Family?
