New York's attorney general announced on Thursday she was suing the Trump Foundation, as well as Donald Trump and his children, alleging "extensive and persistent" lawbreaking.

Barbara Underwood said the charitable foundation had engaged in "unlawful political coordination" designed to influence the 2016 election.

So I know that there will be a lot of politics behind this my understanding is that New York is largely democrat but still, Trump is being sued by the Attorney General of New York and the allegations are pretty serious.

The possible implications of this are also amazing.

Anyway just figured I would just pop this thread up for some discussion.

More diversion from the real crimes that the previous administration commited.

*yawn*

How's the Russian collusion going, btw?

Fair enough, I have edited the original to read "allegations" now because I don't want this thread to turn into a arguing about the wording I have chosen. I think its better to focus on this breaking story that could be potentially massively damaging for Trump.

If laws were broken how come the Attorney General isn't handing out indictments? Or filing charges?

I wonder if the NY AG is up for re-election this year?

Either way I'd wager it gets thrown out.

You do realize in the USA, anyone can sue anyone else for anything.

Now, if it actually gets to court and a judge finds merit, then it may be heard.

Until then, it is a midterm PR stunt by the Dems to make their base and anti-Americans all warm and fuzzy with the implication that someone, somewhere, SOME DAY will find something on Trump and then make it stick.

If they can't, they can still file lawsuit after lawsuit after lawsuit so that CNN and MSNBC have something to sell to their viewership while attempting to undermine a duly elected President.

After all, it IS hard to maintain a 90% negative news bias when so many good things are coming out of this White House.

So same thing as yesterday, same thing that will happen tomorrow....

Its always amazing how rather than discuss the actual topic at hand, the Trump Foundation being sued by New York, you resort to silly whataboutism's.

This is damaging for Trump, I would hope you would have the maturity and intellect to discuss it rather than trying to deflect.

Sounds to me like that blue wave that was scheduled to hit New York in November is turning into calm seas. Just another attempt to twist public opinion around by making up tall tales about the opposition.

Very good points.

Like I said, I am sure a lot of this is going to be driving by politics.

However, as it stands the Trump Foundation is being sued by New York and while I agree with what you have said, it does not change that. I don't know why they are not handing out indictments and filing charges, would be interesting though to find out more about that. My guess would be that they don't have enough evidence to support that but think they might have to bring about a law suit.

So this is a civil filing, not a criminal filing is that correct?

I wonder if it's possible under American law to blur the boundaries of civil and criminal jurisdiction, or whether she's making up law as she goes along.
As I understand the distinction, one prosecutes for criminal offences, or sues for damages when suffering a civil injury.
Can American public officials be sued for wasting taxpayers' money?

Wake me up when evidences are being presented, etc.

Right now it's all diversion and deflection, as you said.

Nothing substantial to have an intellect discuss at the moment.

But thanks for sharing!

is this what it looks like when your entire campaign strategy is "# Trump"?

So this is the Dims attempt to distract from the OIG report.

Wonder if there will be a "school shooting" today?

Why not bring charges? Oh that’s right no evidence

And this lawsuit just coincidentally is filed a few hours before the IG report that is expected to basically conclude James Comey is an idiot who deserved to get fired.

Uh huh. I think the main purpose of this lawsuit is to give CNN something else to talk about for a few days.
