The New York Attorney General filed a lawsuit against President Trump, the Donald J. Trump Foundation and members of the Trump family. The petition filed today alleges a pattern of persistent illegal conduct, occurring over more than a decade, that includes extensive unlawful political coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing transactions to benefit Mr. Trump’s personal and business interests, and violations of basic legal obligations for non-profit foundations alleging that the charity has violated federal and state law. The lawsuit, filed in the New York State Supreme Court, calls for the foundation to be dissolved, seeks restitution of $2.8 million plus penalties, and banning Trump from serving on the board of any other New York charity. Here’s the press release and the petition. — Joe
