Trump’s foundation appears to be a front for paying debts

Will the Justice Department Investigate the Trump Foundation?

Vanity Fair reports:

According to the suit filed by Underwood, who took over the A.G.’s office after her predecessor, Eric Schneiderman, resigned over abuse allegations, the Trump Foundation “was little more than a checkbook for payments to not-for-profits from Mr. Trump or the Trump Organization.” Here’s a taste of the allegations regarding how the family charity misappropriated its funds…

[…] Underwood also charges that the foundation, whose board members include Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric, violated campaign-finance laws by “illegally provid[ing] extensive support” to the then-candidate’s 2016 campaign, despite being explicitly prohibited from “participating or intervening in any political campaign on behalf of a candidate.” E-mails show campaign manager Corey Lewandowski dictating charitable expenditures which you’ll surely be shocked to hear appear dedicated to helping Trump get elected. (“Is there any way we can make some disbursements this week while in Iowa?” Lewandowski wrote to a staffer shortly before the Iowa caucuses.)
