Donald Trump is in trouble again, but this time it's not Robert Mueller pushing the paperwork, it's the attorney general of the state of New York, Barbara Underwood. Underwood is suing not only Donald Trump, but his sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric, and his daughter, Ivanka Trump. They are all being sued for using the Trump Foundation charity in unlawful political co-ordination during the 2016 election. Underwood has even gone as far as asking a New York state judge to dissolve the foundation according to The Globe and Mail.

Underwood's investigation

The lawsuit is asking for $2.8 million of restitution plus penalties, a 10-year ban against Trump directing non-profit organizations, and a one-year ban to each of the three children mentioned for directing non-profit organizations as well. According to The Globe and Mail, Underwood's team has been working over 21 months on this investigation. They started the investigation under her predecessor, Eric Schneiderman, who noticed foul play by the Trump's during the 2016 campaign.

The petition includes that Donald Trump used charitable assets to pay off legal bills, promote his business empire, and for personal purchases. Some of the illegal uses of the charity by Donald Trump are as follows.

He used $100,000 to settle a legal claim with Mar-A-Lago and $158,000 to settle claims against one of his many golf clubs and to purchase a painting of himself to hang up at a different golf club. Underwood stated, according to the BBC, that this isn't the way someone is supposed to run a non-profit charity.

Trump's opinion

As most of us already know, Donald Trump is already involved in a lawsuit with Robert Mueller regarding collusion with the Russians' influence during the 2016 election.

With the addition of this lawsuit over Donald Trumps' head, he is really starting to feel the heat from the legal force of the United States. Eric Trump was starting to feel the pressure of Eric Schneiderman's investigation right after the 2016 election, according to the BBC.

Of course, with the new lawsuit under his belt, this means that Donald Trump ran right to Twitter with this story and gave his unsolicited opinion.

He proceeded to call the New York Democrats sleazy. He stated on Twitter that his foundation brought in $18.8 million and has handed out $19.2 million. He then finished off by stating that he isn't going to settle, as reported by BBC. The Trump Foundation issued a statement accusing the attorney general of withholding the $1.7 million that the organization still has in its account. According to The Globe and Mail, the foundation continued to claim that the attorney general is holding the money hostage for political gain.
