Albany - NY Attorney General Wants Trump Fined $5.6M Over Charity

Albany - New York’s attorney general says President Donald Trump should pay a fine of as much as $5.6 million over allegations in a state lawsuit that he used his charity to further his presidential campaign.


Democrat Letitia James argued in a court filing Thursday that state law allows a fine equal to double the $2.8 million in free media attention she says Trump received for an event that blurred charity and politics.

The Republican Trump skipped a 2016 Iowa debate and held a competing rally at which he solicited donations that his foundation passed on to veterans’ charities.

The foundation has agreed to dissolve.

The lawsuit seeks $2.8 million in restitution. James says there is ample evidence for an immediate ruling in the state’s favor.

Foundation lawyers say that any infractions were minor and that the lawsuit is politically motivated.

(Tea Party PAC) – What John Podesta Did Right Before Justice Scalia Mysteriously Died Will Give You Goosebumps
It has been over three years since the very suspicious death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and we are none the wiser as to what really caused him to meet his end.
On February 13, 2016, Scalia suddenly lied, in his sleep we are told, while staying at Cibolo Creek Ranch, a 1,7000-acre ranch and luxury accomodations in Texas, just 15 miles from the US-Mexico border, Fellowship of the Minds notes.
Some of the very suspicious factors of Scalia’s death, according to True Pundit, are as follows:
• No autopsy
• No medical examiner on site to decipher cause of death
• No U.S. Marshal protection detail accompanying Scalia
• No functioning CCTV cameras on day of death
• Scalia found clothed on bed with pillow over face
• Scalia’s body mysteriously cremated before it could be examined
• Resort owner large Obama contributor
But this is where things get very weird. John Podesta, campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, made a reference to assassination in an email from February 9th, 2016.
