New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman announces an investigation into Donald Trump’s use of the Trump Foundation for self-dealing and political contributions, actions that would break New York charity laws.
The announcement comes shortly after revelations that Trump used the foundation to contribute to Pam Bondi’s Florida re-election campaign, along with other illegal expenditures.
A spokesperson for Trump claims that the investigation is a biased attack to derail the presidential campaign in support of Hillary Clinton.
Later, in 2019, Trump admits to these allegations and more in a court settlement derived from the investigation.
