Washington (CNN)House Democrats are seeking a Justice Department investigation of the Trump Foundation, following reports about a large donation he gave to Florida's attorney general in 2013.
Trump donated $25,000 to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi's campaign, as her office was considering whether to open an investigation into Trump University. Bondi's office did not open an investigation, and Trump and Bondi have both said there was no wrongdoing and said the donation was not tied to any favors.
"These payments may have influenced Mrs. Bondi's official decision not to participate in litigation against Mr. Trump," Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee wrote in their letter Tuesday to Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The Democrats specifically cite anti-bribery laws in their request.
Here you go calling it "pay to play" and a "list of donors." It actually says what at the column header? "Total Raised" not "Total donated" so it's not a list of donors first and foremost. Can we agree to tht point?
Let's start right up at the top and look at the names. Matthew Barzun. This isn't news folks. It's public information that Barzun was a volunteer for Obama in 2008 and a major fundraiser through small-donation fundraising events. He was also the National Finance Chair for Obama's 2012 re-election campaign.
U.S. ambassadors are appointed by the President and confirmed by Senate.
Genachowski was the Chairperson of the Technology, Media and Telecommunications Policy Working Group for Obama's 2008 election campaign. He was appointed to the position by Obama and confirmed unanimously by the US Senate.
No matter who wins the election, the new President will 100% appoint some people from his campaign to positions. You might really be shocked to learn that even DONORS are regularly appointed to various positions and *GASP* it's been going on since the days of the Founding Fathers.
Not criminal. Far from unusual. Certainly not a secret.
