Now, for those who have followed Trump during his presidential campaign and hung on to his every word for dear life, you are probably dead by now. I’m sure you have heard Trump say time and again that he never settles lawsuits because settling lawsuits show that you have something to hide.
Well, apparently Trump has something to hide. He has decided against fighting to prove his innocence in multiple fraud cases against him and has instead chosen to settled those cases $25 million. The fraud cases were due to his defunct real estate seminar program, Trump University.
The settlement eliminates the possibility that Trump will be called to testify in court in the midst of his presidential transition. It ends three separate lawsuits that made claims against Trump University, including a California class action case that was scheduled to go to trial later this month, as well as a second suit in that state and an action filed by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
