    the lawsuit filed by NY AG Barbara Underwood, against the Trump Foundation and Board--- Ivanka,Don Jr. Eric, and, of course, Trump.  "engaging in a pattern of persistent illegal conduct", asks the state judge to dissolve the Foundation entirely; distribute the reaming assets to (real) charities; and asks Trump to pay at least $2.8 million in restitution; and that Trump be barred from leading any other NY non-profit for at least 10 years.

    I know her j*rk-off father is...and he's gonna take every penny, and the lifetime security detail!  

    No Truman's to be found who refuse to sully the office by using it for personal profit...not in this day and age.  Time for congress to retire the presidential pension...it's a wealthy person's job now and forever more.

    proverb " people who run scam charities should expect to be sued"
    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.

    "If you don't know what you're talking about, keep your mouth shut."
    Yeh, yeh, it's not an ancient Greek proverb, but I'm Greek and I said it, so that makes it a Greek proverb.  ;-)
