Trump Foundation admits error in donation to Florida attorney general campaign

Trump Foundation illegally donated to AGDonald Trump’s campaign said Tuesday that a series of clerical mistakes is responsible for an apparent failure by Trump’s foundation to report a political donation on its taxes.

Trump donated $25,000 from his foundation, which as a nonprofit is not supposed to aid political candidates, to a group backing Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi in 2013. The money came under scrutiny at the time because Trump donated the money just days after Bondi said she was reviewing complaints surrounding Trump’s real estate school, Trump University.

Trump Foreign Policy Adviser Has Ties to Brutal Lebanese Militia

Walis PharesDonald Trump has finally announced the names of five of his foreign policy advisers, and at least one member of his new team is sure to raise eyebrows.

By packing inmates who can’t vote into a district, but counting them when drawing electoral maps, District Judge Mark Walker said the county had violated the “one person, one vote” principle in the Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment.

Trump U is simple fraud caseNew York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on Sunday rejected suggestions that his office’s case against presidential candidate Donald Trump’s defunct “Trump University” was at all political.

“This is a straightforward fraud case. We never had any idea in 2013 the guy was going to run for president,” Schneiderman said on John Catsimatidis’ “Cats Roundtable” program on AM 970. “This is not a political case. This just a case where a lot of New Yorkers were ripped off.”
