Report: NY AG Probing Trump ‘Self-Dealing’ Allegations

The New York attorney general’s probe of Donald Trump’s charitable foundation has expanded to include allegations that Trump used foundation funds to settle legal disputes, according to a Thursday report. The revelation comes after months of reporting by the Washington Post showed the extent to which the Republican presidential nominee apparently used his charity to benefit himself. According to Talking Points Memo, officials in Palm Beach, Florida, have provided documents to the New York Attorney General’s Office relating to a 2007 case in which Trump allegedly used foundation funds to settle a lawsuit. John Randolph, a lawyer for the town, said the New York officials reached out to him, and he “sent them the documents that I had previously sent to the Washington Post.” The New York Attorney General’s Office declined to comment on the case.
