To his credit Eric was trying to do the right thing with their charity golf tournament. Until daddy stepped in and in a fit of narcissistic rage demanded why they do it for free. Eric relented and since then they started ripping off donors big time in a standard Trump way.

One has to believe that a lawsuit brought against a charitable foundation, no matter who owns it likely has a strong basis, and is not just a political event.

Otherwise, our whole system of justice is teetering to a systemic crash. let's see what comes out of this before imposing politically aligned beliefs.

Trump must have felt extremely strong about serving the American people. After all, hes given up his billionaire lifestyle for a constant slagging off from the political classes and press.

This article does lend some credibility to the charges:

http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/do...st-report-says

Quote:
"Greenberg sued, and when the parties settled, the Trump Foundation donated $158,000 to the Martin Greenberg Foundation, which Rosemary Fei, an expert in nonprofit law, says is illegal.

"Yes, Trump pledged as part of the settlement to make a payment to a charity, and yes, the foundation is writing a check to a charity," Fei told The Post. "But the obligation was Trump's. And you can't have a charitable foundation paying off Trump's personal obligations. That would be classic self-dealing."

Its a lawsuit. It is alleging misconduct. At this point thats all it is. Those in the complaint will answer. If it proceeds then the parties will discover what each side has. Is there merit? To early to tell. Maybe it will go to court, maybe it will settle. Hell, maybe it will be thrown out.

Hillary, fake news. Jesus! get over it.

Laser pointer on!
Gatos in full chase.

It's a two year old hit project by, now run out of town, AG Shneiderman.

'Let's re-pop it on IG Report release day!'

Carry on.

Yes, because why else would a guy who obviously loves being in charge of things possibly want to be the most powerful man on the planet?

A veritable saint, our Donny!

Agreed, but this isn't Joe Citizen suing the Trump charity. The fact that it's a state's Attorney General lends a bit more credibility to the suit, no?

I'm not sure the American president is the most powerful man on the planet. He's answerable to Congress and the American people.
Putin, on the other hand, is answerable to no one.

The arguable veracity of the phrase doesn't change the fact that it is often quoted and often believed.

Oh, and I don't think Putin's job was open when The Donald decided to run for office.

Indeed. So is Santa Claus. But it doesn't mean it's true
