AG Barbara Underwood accused them of “extensive and persistent violations of state and federal law.”
New York state attorney general Barbara Underwood filed a lawsuit against the Trump family’s charity, alleging “extensive and persistent violations of state and federal law.”
Underwood announced that the lawsuit would name the foundation as well as its directors — President Trump, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Eric Trump. Alleging a “pattern of persistent illegal conduct, occurring over more than a decade,” Underwood asked for $2.8 million in restitution, plus penalties, and called for the foundation to be dissolved.
Underwood says that she has contacted the IRS and FEC, identifying potential violations of federal law associated with the foundation. She is also seeking to ban President Trump from serving as a board member for any other New York nonprofit organization for 10 years.
Underwood became the state attorney general last month, after Eric Schneiderman’s shocking resignation due to sexual misconduct allegations. She is not seeking to be elected to the post permanently. You can read the full lawsuit below, or at this link.
