So, it should not come as any surprise that the New York Attorney General’s Office has now announced it informed the Trump Foundation that it was not properly registered and must stop all fundraising activity, immediately.
He also serves on the Clinton campaign’s leadership council for the state of New York.
As a report on the Clinton campaign recently explained, the leadership council was put together as a means of “amplifying the campaign’s national voice to New York families aiding the campaign with rapid response, organization building, grassroots organizing events, recruiting volunteer leaders, and identifying leaders for Get Out The Vote activities.” Schneiderman seems to have taken this message to heart, and has even shown a willingness throughout the campaign to use his office to protect Clinton, while launching investigations against her political rivals.
And the decision to open a highly publicized investigation into allegations against the Trump Foundation is simply the latest example.
Although the existence of the Notice of Violation letter was only reported on Monday, the date of the letter indicates Schneiderman’s office had decided to go forward with an enforcement action within about 24 hours of the report.
