Donald Trump Smears NY Attorney General After She Sues Him: “I Won’t Settle This Case!”

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood is not scared of President Donald Trump as she sued the president, three of his children (Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr.), and the Trump Organization for “extensive violations” of state and federal law.

The allegations in the suit include various campaign finance violations, as the Trump Organization coordinated with the Trump campaign, and finally arrives after a nearly two-year-long investigation.

The New York AG claims, “As our investigation reveals, the Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality.”

“This is not how private foundations should function and my office intends to hold the foundation accountable for its misuse of charitable assets,” she added.

Now, the president is releasing his frustration over Twitter, smearing former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who resigned last month amid a series of sexual assault allegations. The case was picked up by the newly sworn-in Barbara Underwood.

There is little documentation to support the assertion that the former attorney general “ran the Clinton campaign in New York,” but the president might be referring to conservative accusations that Schneiderman helped Hillary Clinton “hide … shady donations from foreign governments during her tenure as Secretary of State.”

“This is a corrupt circle of insider, partisan dealings that has no business inside the state’s highest law enforcement office,” the New York GOP’s website claims.

Outside of conservative circles, many would take Trump’s description of Schneiderman’s role into the Clintons’ affairs to be incredibly misleading. However, readers are not advised to hold their collective breaths for a retraction from the president.

Trump’s Democratic opponents were quick to jump on the latest legal obstacle facing the president, who has been seemingly mired in political scandal since his first days in office.

Congressman Ted Lieu tweeted that the president’s tendency to smear law enforcement doesn’t do much for his credibility.
