    I expect that this thread will be full of outrage by conservatives who have been concerned about A+ rated charities in America.... being the watchdogs they are.

    As someone who works for one of the most respected non-profits in the world, I hate to see any abuse. It is not a political matter. So chalk this "righty" up as one that hopes it gets shut down if it is fraudulent.

    But just to be clear, no one is surprised that NY isn't finding stuff about it's patron Saintess.

    I am numb. There is very little beyond the bounds of this person's behavior.

    Trump is done.. NY AG is suing for 2.8 Million which will surely bankrupt the family.

    So if I have this right....,

    Decades of corruption by the Trump Foundation only came to light once he became a Republican.

    Once again proves that demonrats are incompetent and crooked .

    I know we live in a highly politicized world but find it hard to believe that a prosecutor would bring charges against a sitting US prez AND refer same to IrS and FEC for purely political reasons.

    So my prediction is that after endless tweetstorms and victimized whining by the president abt the unfairness of the charges, Trump and his family settle, just like he did in the Trump university case, and then declare victory.

    Once a grifter…

    According to the closed captions on FoxNews, Trump ran the foundation "according to women and not according to the law." That certainly sounds plausible (though in Stormy's case, the money allegedly came from Cohen).

    NY AG, once the office of the esteemed Elliot Spitzer.

    I would advise those filled with glee on this subject to have a seat and wait for the facts to come out. By facts I mean a trial. Not leaks and "anonymous sources" from CNN and MSNBC, NYT, and unfortunately, others on a list too long to mention.

    If they were acting illegally, let the chips fall where they may.

    Unfortunately, the New York AG's office is extremely political and has been targeting Trump ever since he won the nomination. I'll wait and see on this.

    Curious also that no one ever had any interest in investigating the Clinton Foundation, particularly given all the troubling facts that came out of the Clinton's "relief" efforts in Haiti.

    Your mocking reflex is interesting.

    Do you think that it matters if any of these allegations against Trump are true? Or do you only think it matters whether Trump can remain president?

    Advise, but not first before one alludes about the integrity of the current AG's office based on someone from the past?

    Yeah, that's the reason, otherwise we'd all be best friends talking about how awesome America is on TH, if it weren't for the dang media and "deep state."
