New York AG To Trump Foundation: "Immediately Cease Soliciting Contributions"

Tyler Durden's picture

New York Attorney General (and well known Democrat donor) Eric Schneidermann has notified Donald Trump that his charitable foundation is violating state law - by soliciting donations without proper certification - and, as WaPo reports, ordered Trump’s charity to stop its fundraising immediately. This comes 3 weeks after he began a probe into "troubling transactions."

As NBC News reports, the move comes after the Washington Post reported last week that the campaign lacked a required state certification that would allow it to request funding from the public.

Trump organized a veterans event after cancelling a primary debate appearance in January and collected $1.67 million through a website directing donations to the Trump Foundation.


"The Attorney General's office is the sole regulator of charities in New York State, and when evidence of clear misconduct is brought to our attention, we take action," a spokesman for the attorney general's office said in a statement.


The "Notice of Violation" letter obtained by NBC News warned that the charity "shall be deemed a continuing fraud upon the people of New York" unless it provided required paperwork regarding its fundraising activities within the next 15 days.

NBC adds, that the Trump campaign has previously denounced Schneiderman, a Democrat supporting Hillary Clinton for president, as politically motivated.

"While we remain very concerned about the political motives behind AG Schneiderman's investigation, the Trump Foundation nevertheless intends to cooperate fully with the investigation," Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in a statement on Monday.


"Because this is an ongoing legal matter, the Trump Foundation will not comment further at this time."

Ha, like they would stop real government officials from contributing?!?!?

When Trump was starting his campaign there were many people saying to him "don't do it", "it's not worth it", "the shit brought up during the race stays afloat forever".


Trump while realising all this - probably never expected this BS.

I'm sure this cock sucker is fine with the Clinton Foundation, which is a thinly veiled money laundering operation.

About time! How very timely that this should coincide with today’s article at the Accredited Times:

I know this will go over your head MillionDollarBonus_ but I'm gonna say it anyway...

As I recall, the first thing that tends to happen after the collectivist revolution topples the government is they usually kill off all the useful idiots that helped get them there.

So if you have a death wish please leave the rest of us out of it. We just want to live our lives in peace, liberty and prosperity.

Trump Foundation to partisan NY weasel: EABOD.

Not sure if these folks know the writing is on the wall or what but does Schneidermann think Trump won't get that arsehole fired as soon as he gets in?!

There's just no end to how low you can go when the moral compass stops working.

Just more election year grandstanding.

Looking at the previous occupants of NY AG's office I suspect being an utter asshole is a job requirement.

So much for the baseless allegations against the Clinton Foundation - it looks like the legal experts are very clear about which foundation is truly corrupt.

NewHugh's picture

So you make stupid statements,and expect anyone to click your stupid links.  I can only characterize that as... a ... lack.. of.. grey... matter...

Corrupt politicians and agents of the government should be hung from the neck until dead, full stop.

The Donald Trump is a chubby, obese dirty slimeball with low morals and a lower gut-sack. He reminds me of Ned Beattie in Deliverance, squealing as his fat, pudgie, porcine buttocks were violated just like Hillary will do to him on November 8th!! All Hail Dear Leader Hillary! May Dagon take vengeance upon all followers of The Donald!

Well at least you have something in common.

Did you mean to say nut-sack?  I dunno, just seems more fitting with the graphic Deliverance reference?

Using her strap on dildo no doubt? Thank you for confirming that you know that Hillarity is a bull dyke lesbian cunt.


I just do not understand how a Muslim, as you claim that you are, can support homosexual acts as you do. Allah will be pleased as well as the prophet Muhammad...NOT. Your "conversion" to Islam seems to be lacking any substance.


Furthermore you commit blasphemy by calling upon the name of the Philistine or Cannanite Demon, Dagon, in order to exact revenge? The scales of the justice of the most merciful Allah weigh against you and you need repent of your wickedness, infidel. Some Muslim clergy, some mullah, just might issue a fatwa against you for you unabashed blasphemy thus bringing dishonor to the name of the Prophet.


As I have written previously...Just because I am a Christian, and proclaim that Christ Jesus is Lord, does not mean that I am ignorant about the faith which you have proclaimed. (And I must admit that I do like Iran's solution to that problem of faggotry. At least they are consistent with the teachings of the Koran and the Hadith. Hang them high.)

"I'm sure this cock sucker is fine with the Clinton Foundation, which is a thinly veiled money laundering operation."

Yeah, but it's a thinly veiled money laundering operation with the proper legal paperwork to allow them to do it.

I bet you find the Trump organization applied for the proper paperwork (from the state of NY) and it hasn't been issued yet.  Like the IRS thing... roadblock after roadblock put in it's way.

I'm not sure the Clinton foundation is legal if you listen to Charles Ortel

Clinton Foundation is based out of a country that doesn't exist, you know... for legal and tax reasons of course.

He is - another treasonous piece of shit


"State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman gave the Clinton Foundation a pass on identifying foreign donors in its charitable filings — making it impossible to know if it got any special favors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, according to a report Tuesday."

Organizations that received a contribution or grant from a government agency during the reporting period shall include the name of each agency from which contributions were received and the amount of each contribution.”

But both the foundation and the CHAI failed to do that, and Schneiderman, a member of Clinton’s “leadership council” in New York and a fierce critic of Donald Trump, did nothing about it.

Blankenstein's picture

This ass face also donated to the Hildevil and held a fundraiser for her. 


The Sunlight Foundation also pointed out that Schneiderman donated $2,700, the maximum personal contribution amount allowed, to Clinton last year and hosted a fundraiser for her. The non-profit group said Schneiderman was making a "glaring omission" for not forcing the Clinton’s Health Access Initiative to publicly disclose gifts from foreign governments.

Black Sunday - Ramrod/Obozo will take out 200k trump voters at a NASCAR race?

CPL's picture

They are throwing everything and the kitchen sink at this.  Doesn't matter.  He's going to win, then he's going to file the largest bankrupcy in history of the Corporation of the USA.  Then 51 countries are going to have to figure out what they are going to have to do with their state's debts.  Pretty sure Trump will be available to help foreclouse on the largest problems like California, D.C., Illinios and NY after wrapping up the business of filing chapter 11 on the USA.

I would strongly suggest diversification of any savings any of you might have.  Once chapter 11 is filed it means any trusts, bank notes, capital, stocks, companies or anything priced in green backs are going to be worthless.  That includes retirement funds.  BitCoin is an option you all might want to look into.  Might want to do it quickly as well.  35 days isn't a hell of a long time if you want to stay relevant or mercy forbid you might have to work for a living.  For those of us that have been laid off before, it'll just be another day.  

For those that don't know how to work or don't work, its going to be rough on you.  Good luck.

City & State of NY have been getting hammered by corruption probes at the Federal level.  Schneiderman is small potatos and I doubt this represents a serious threat.  Just offering some perspective.

if Trump wakes up he can leverage this libtard dem's gambit. this is a net plus if parlayed correctly. Hitlery & co. are digging their own graves....

You have got to be kidding me ... right? I need to pinch myself to make sure this is not a nightmare.

All this perversion of justice will result in making more people vote for TRUMP.

These democrats truly are despots with reprobate minds.

Based on this desperate action by the DEMOCRATS, they must be loosing big. I don't care what the polls from realclearpolitics (FOGGY) say!!!

Yep, once again they've underestimated their audience.

It's so crooked it's become comical,  but the average voter is tired of this comedy.

Let's clean house.
