NY Attorney General accuses Trump and family of persistent violations of federal law

Slate - Donald Trump’s personal charity amounted to little more than a personal piggy bank he could use for his own financial and political gain, according to a lawsuit filed by the New York state attorney general after a two-year investigation.

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood filed the suit in state court on Thursday accusing Trump and his three adult children of “extensive and persistent violations of federal law” that date back more than a decade and continued through the 2016 presidential campaign. Among the alleged illegal activity: Trump used foundation money to settle his business’ legal obligations, promote his hotels and clubs, and curry political favor for his presidential campaign.
