N.Y. attorney general opens investigation of Trump Foundation


Recommended Posts


The Democratic attorney general of New York who has opened investigations of climate fraud against oil companies picked a new target Tuesday — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.


New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said during an appearance on CNN on Tuesday afternoon that he was concerned that the Donald J. Trump Foundation was breaking laws and regulations related to charitable groups.

According to multiple news outlets shortly afterward, Mr. Schneiderman formally opened an investigation despite having declined to investigate the Clinton Foundation and having endorsed Mrs. Clinton for president.


“My interest in this issue really is in my capacity as regulator of nonprofits in New York state. And we have been concerned that the Trump Foundation may have engaged in some impropriety from that point of view,” Mr. Schneiderman told CNN’s “The Lead” program Tuesday afternoon.Scissors-32x32.png
