"The New York Attorney General's Office did contact me in regard to this matter", John Randolph, the Palm Beach town attorney, told TPM. This week Trump has been pushing a new attack line regarding the Clinton Foundation, saying, "With her it's about "follow the money.' Remember that phrase".
Then there were payments totaling almost $1.9 million from a NY man who sells sought-after tickets and one-of-a-kind experiences to wealthy clients. "I just sent them the documents that I had previously sent to the Washington Post".
Attkisson interviewed Trump on the eve of the first of three presidential debates about - among other things - the scandals that have brewed during his campaign, namely, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's inquiry into the Donald J. Trump Foundation.
Trump's management of his foundation, to which he has not donated since 2008, according to reports, is being called into question, as many are stating it appears the GOP nominee may have been engaging in self-dealing. Epshteyn, in the Saturday interview with The Post, said Trump did not knowingly violate any tax laws.
New York State Law clearly mandates that any charity soliciting more than $25,000 a year in public donations must go through a special registration process.
The Slants' trademark case heading to the Supreme Court
First, it could affect a far better known (or more notorious) name in entertainment: the Washington Redskins. An Oregon band's bid for the right to trademark their "offensive" name has reached the US Supreme Court.
Experts I have spoken to say the Trump Foundation's actions, as reported by the Post, looked to be pretty clear violations of laws governing charitable spending, and that Trump and his charity are likely looking at fines and sanctions, with still more severe punishments possible. When Greenberg did not receive the $1 million promised for the shot, he sued the golf course, the Mourning charity, and the insurer for the prize money.
HOW DID a portrait of Donald Trump - purchased by Mr. Trump's charitable foundation - end up being displayed at one of Mr. Trump's golf resorts, and was that a legitimate use of philanthropic funds?
TPM reached out to Greenberg's office Wednesday, but he has not yet responded to TPM's inquiry.
This is probably the funniest argument the Trump campaign has ever come up with. "The New York attorney general ... could require that the foundation shut down", explained Mayer. Schneiderman's office would not confirm or deny it is looking into the foundation, but the attorney general has been investigation Trump University on claims it did not deliver on promises of real estate investment education after charging thousands to students. 'But we - I think my people do a very good job with it'.
