(LAWNEWZ) Last week, it was reported that the Trump Foundation was not properly registered to solicit funds under New York law. So, it should not come as any surprise that the New York Attorney General’s Office has now announced it informed the Trump Foundation that it was not properly registered and must stop all fundraising activity, immediately. (LAWNEWZ) Despite what you may hear from political talking heads, there is no question that this move by the Democratic New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office is simply an extension of an ongoing, politically motivated probe into Donald Trump’s charity.
It has previously been reported that it is no secret Schneiderman is a Hillary Clinton supporter. Disclosures from 2015 show he donated $2,700 to Clinton’s campaign, the maximum amount allowed under federal law. He also serves on the Clinton campaign’s leadership council for the state of New York. As a report on the Clinton campaign recently explained, the leadership council was put together as a means of “amplifying the campaign’s national voice to New York families aiding the campaign with rapid response, organization building, grassroots organizing events, recruiting volunteer leaders, and identifying leaders for Get Out The Vote activities.”
