He says he is investigating the Trump foundation for various obscure reasons. The investigation been going on since September and he found NOTHING. He serves the New York governor who is a Democrat. Is he abusing his powers to prevent Trump from closing the foundation to prevent foreign states from putting gifts into the foundation?

Who can override the New York attorney general? The federal attorney general or the Supreme Court?

He better watch himself. Look at what happened to Kathleen Kane the AG for Pennsylvania. As soon as she finished her hit job on the Corbett Administration, her own side threw her under the bus.

Correct me if I'm wrong, isn't an attorney general just a legal consultant? He is not a judge. IMO he is stretching his legal authority to order Trump not close Trump's own private foundation. It's not like he cannot continue his investigation after the foundation is closed.

He is also a large contributor to HRC and did NOT investigate the Clinton Foundation for illegal practices in NY with donations from foreign entities.

This was something he did before the election to try to get the Teflon Don but it did not work. NY is very liberal but he slit his throat for re-election or appointment.

The foundation is closing based on conflict of interest. They can still investigate but there was no wrongdoing. This will end up where all of the rape and molesting accusations went...away now that HRC lost.

Imagine if Don Jr. becomes NY governor and goes after this guy. That would be scary indeed.

The plan would be to keep it going so they can attempt to impeach him for conflict of interest. Dems not the brightest crew out there.

Impeachment is only the first step. To remove the president from office requires an order from the Supreme Court. This guy is putting his life on the line. Trump is putting his guy on the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court can throw this guy's ass in jail for conflict of interest and abuse of office.

Because he is investigating a foundation that was little more than a pass through charity so Trump could get awards, hold said award ceremonies on his properties and make more money. That isn't odd at all. Must be abuse of power. /sarc

Yea well like the moth to the flame to make it look like they are doing something. It also fits the lib tactic of guilt simply by suggestion and they will need to get some miles out of this.

Trump has already admitted to wrongdoing, the IRS haved fined him for same,
'Trump’s charity has admitted that it violated IRS regulations barring it from using its money or assets to benefit Trump, his family, his companies or substantial contributors to the foundation.'

'The admissions by the Donald J. Trump Foundation were in a 2015 tax filing made public after a presidential election in which it was revealed that Trump has used the charity to settle lawsuits, make a $25,000 political contribution and purchase items, such as a painting of himself, that was displayed at one of his properties.

The 2015 tax filing was posted on the nonprofit monitoring website GuideStar on Nov. 18 by someone using an email address from the foundation’s law firm, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, said GuideStar spokeswoman Jackie Enterline Fekeci.'

Same, NYT
Washington Post, etc, etc........

I am so surprised that xuenchen below you has had a curious memory loss for some unknown reason.

American law advice,

'Who has authority to investigate the activities of a nonprofit corporation?

The state’s attorney general will probably have statutory authority to (1) investigate charities that operate as nonprofit corporations, and (2) inspect the books and records of all corporations, including nonprofit corporations. In some states, such investigations are the duty of the state’s secretary of state. The IRS can revoke a nonprofit corporation’s tax exemption for violations of federal tax laws.'

BTW, the guy you are talking about, ( New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman) since you didn't bother to mention names or even a link, has a $40 million suit against Trump for his University's dodgy activities, that's been going on for some time, and perhaps an even bigger deal if it's proven to be say downright fraud. At the moment it seems that the only discussion is if a trial/the trial will be by a judge or a jury, and that is not likely to happen tomorrow, or before Trump takes office. My guess would the whole country should expect a sitting president to make his case in court.

4 months of investigation and found NOTHING. What's there to investigate? This is obviously a political motivation. The Trump foundation is a private foundation. It is not a registered charity foundation like the Clinton foundation. The Trump foundation was not set up for charity purposes and it is not used for charity purposes.
