Trump Rages Against ‘Sleazy’ Dems After New York AG Sues Him and Family For Foundation Self-Dealing


After bombshell reports dropped on Thursday morning that the New York State attorney general’s office had filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump‘s hilarious Foundation, the president issued a wild tweet-storm blasting “sleazy New York Democrats.”

The New York Times reported:

The New York State attorney general’s office filed a scathingly worded lawsuit on Thursday taking aim at the Donald J. Trump Foundation, accusing the charity and the Trump family of sweeping violations of campaign finance laws, self-dealing and illegal coordination with the presidential campaign.

Trump attacked the lawsuit shortly afterwards on Twitter, taking aim at former New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman (who resigned in disgrace after allegations of his abuse were detailed in the New Yorker) and boasted of his foundation’s charitable efforts.

“I won’t settle this case!” Trump wrote, which is a hilarious statement to make from a guy that always says that right before he settles cases.

Trump also fit in an attack on the Mueller investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia.

“Now that I am back from Singapore, where we had a great result with respect to North Korea, the thought process must sadly go back to the Witch Hunt, always remembering that there was No Collusion and No Obstruction of the fabricated No Crime,” he wrote.
