I mean, Donald Trump brags all the time about how rich he is… billions of dollars he claims he owns. If that is truly the case – and a lot of people say it isn’t – why has he turned to small donors to fuel his failing campaign? And if donors are asked to send their last $20.00 to the Republican candidate for president, why isn’t Donald Trump following the necessary laws to accept such donations?
Although Trump is floating high in his Republican circles he is not above the law. And New York’s attorney general is assisting in his crash back to earth.
The state’s attorney general has notified Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump that his charitable foundation is violating New York law because it does not have the proper certification to solicit donations, The Washington Post first reported.
James Sheehan, head of the attorney general’s charities bureau, sent the notice to the foundation on Friday.
The notice follows a story that The Washington Post published last week that showed the foundation had been soliciting donations without being properly registered in New York state.
The Trump campaign released a statement on Monday following the attorney general’s announcement that questioned the “political motives” behind the investigation into the foundation.
“While we remain very concerned about the political motives behind AG [Eric] Schneiderman’s investigation, the Trump Foundation nevertheless intends to cooperate fully with the investigation,” Hope Hicks, the campaign’s spokeswoman, said in a statement.
