New York sues Trump for ‘illegal conduct’ at family foundation

New York (AFP) – New York State announced a lawsuit Thursday against President Donald Trump, his sons and daughter over alleged “persistent illegal conduct” at their family foundation for more than a decade.

The lawsuit accused the Donald J. Trump foundation of “extensive unlawful political coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing transactions to benefit Mr. Trump’s personal and business interests, and violations of basic legal obligations for non-profit foundations.”

The suit seeks restitution of $2.8 million and the shutdown of the foundation, as well as a 10-year ban on Trump serving on the board of any other New York charity.
