    Default Re: Trump ordered to pay $2 million for misuse of Trump Foundation

    Yet nobody seems to remember Moscow Mitch making the comment about making Barrack Obama a one term President after he was elected.

    Speaking of obstruction--Congress obstructed Obama for 8 years.

    If Obama had pulled a few stunts like Trump (closed meeting with Putin; invite of Russians to the White House), they would have impeached him long ago. Trump has gotten by with all kinds of eye raising things that most Presidents would have had impeachment inquiries--this is long overdue.

    Obama was involved in the Trump foundation?

    Seems quaint by comparison. I mean suggesting they were going to do everything they could to beat the sitting president who represent the opposite party in the next election. Parrish the thought.

    ...and to think that this criminal mastermind has planned, plotted and ascended to the position of the most powerful office in the world...Itís pure brilliance if you think about it...

    Thank God weíve got crackerjack bad asses like Shiff and Nadler hot on his trail...especially considering the way the impotent and incompetent Obama administration completely blew their attempt at sabotaging the candidacy of the Republican nominee for president and now the continuing, relentless failure by the dims to overthrow the republican President of the United States...

    Itís cute the way Trump just laughs at them and makes up funny little names for each of them... brilliance!

    Do you remember Senate majority leader, Harry Reid standing up in front of the US Senate to reveal that he had proof that Mitt Romney had been cheating on his taxes for years close enough to the election that Romney had no chance to defend himself ?

    ...he then later admitted on 60 minutes that he had lied about the whole thing while laughing and when asked if he felt guilty about doing it said “we won...didn’t we?”

    There’s no moral high ground for the left...

    He loved to brag about Obama never having to veto anything because not one bill passed by the republican house ever made it to a vote on the Senate floor...he was the master of obstruction...

    Interesting, the "Trump Foundation" Board of Directors had not conducted a board meeting in 19 years.

    Worth noting is that this is a family foundation, not a public charity. Truly, the only thing that matters to the board is if they are following the will of the family. Not meeting officially when nearly all the members are related (Trump and his kids) isn't really a red flag. but it's one more of those things that is spread around like we should be incredibly appalled by it because no one knows how this stuff works and it sounds bad.

    ^ Regardless of it being a family foundation, are there not legal requirements to be met that were not? This must not be the only family foundation in the state of NY.

    In terms of the IRS interest, the only real thing they are worried about is self-dealing. Think of it this way, a person that has a decent amount of influence over a non-profit of any kind, cannot benefit financially from it. That includes things like compensation (not-allowed), leases (not-allowed), travel expenses (not-allowed). There are a few other things, but 99% of the problems people (even good ethical people) have are doing things that are self-dealing in the eyes of the IRS. Which is why you should hire professionals to assist you because the rules aren't always apparent or logical to those that don't deal with them for a living. If you don't have an annual meeting every year, exactly zero people in the government will give a ****.

    It wasn't Trump's money, he hadn't donated to his own foundation for years. Most of the money held by the foundation came from Vince McMahon. Whose wife is now Administrator of the Small Business Administration.

    Trump used foundation money for personal expenses like a painting of himself, resolving lost court cases and helping his political campaign. That's illegal.

    It was not ok and Trump would have to be stupid to think it was ok.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't we talking about NY tax law and regulations?

    Yes. But I'm just giving you a general list of things he should be concerned about. I would actually have to dig to find out if what they got that foundation for is an issue in all 50 states. That being said, NY AG has made it a point to prosecute Trump on just about anything. So this very well may be one of those things that has been overlooked a thousand times until today.
