The Donald J. Trump Foundation agreed to be dissolved on Tuesday after it was accused of acting “in a persistently illegal manner” by the New York Attorney General’s Office.

The foundation is accused by the attorney general in a lawsuit—and in multiple news stories—of using charity funds to settle private business matters, coordinating between the foundation and Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, and making an illegal and undisclosed contribution to a political action committee.

“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,” Attorney General Barbara Underwood said in a statement. “This is an important victory for the rule of law, making clear that there is one set of rules for everyone.”

In a stipulation signed by foundation attorney Alan Futerfas, the foundation agreed to dissolve and within 30 days submit to the court a list of not-for-profit organizations to receive its remaining assets.

The stipulation follows a decision last month to allow for Underwood’s suit against the Trump Foundation to proceed. The lawsuit seeks $2.8 million in restitution plus penalties, as well as a ban on Trump from future service as a director of a New York not-for-profit for ten years.

It also seeks the same ban for a year for Trump’s children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric, who all are foundation board members.

  1. Bored Israeli house wives making a little side hustle trolling the internet?

    Gosh, you need some better script writers!

    Or more scary many of you might be Evangelical wingnuts who actually believe what you post here on VT.

    After all, the local Evangelical Church is where dumb Republicans are manufactured as we see them on display here in their glory!


  2. There is the army of paid bloggers and Fox News who hate the Clintons and that well documented money trail by VT writers as the rot is the GOP.

    Republicans are domestic enemies as I am saying this right to your face and would do the same in public.


  3. Still in the lead as most corrupted is Hillary Clinton , Watergate , Chinagate , Pay for play ,Pardongate , Travel officegate , Emailgate , Lincoln Bedroom fund raising , Benghazi , Keystone XL pipeline she was paid $3.4 million for 18 speeches by the banks that had invested in the pipeline She is so criminal volumes could and should be written about her …..The same Hillary working as a lawyer defended a child rapist and laughed about it .

  4. All done touching “charities” , looks like a full blown losing streak coming. A resignation has never been a better option for a president. This is a real pack of liars.
    If ever the justice department was fully compelled to make an example….. if they don’t , trust factor plummets, beyond its already historic low.
