[h=1]Embattled Trump Foundation agrees to dissolve itself in agreement with New York AG[/h]
President Trump’s embattled charitable foundation has agreed to dissolve itself under judicial supervision as part of a lawsuit brought by New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood.

The Trump Foundation had previously sought to dissolve on its own terms but has now signed a stipulation that requires it to do so with monitoring by the court and oversight by the attorney general’s office, which must review and approve disbursements of remaining funds to make sure the recipients are legitimate.
“Today’s stipulation accomplishes a key piece of the relief sought in our lawsuit earlier this year,” said New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood in a statement. “Under the terms, the Trump Foundation can only dissolve under judicial supervision – and it can only distribute its remaining charitable assets to reputable organizations approved by my office.”
Irony -- cheer irony.

During the campaign, Trump called the Clinton Foundation corrupt. It was clearly mere projection, as his foundation was merely a slush-fund to pay Trump expenses and illegal campaign contributions.

Just waiting for the "nothing to see here" crowd to chime in.

You mean to say that paying 20 grand for this:

was not a legitimate charity?

Fake news! Fake news! It's really the Clinton foundation that pays for such things!

This from the NY Times:
The closure of the foundation is a milestone in the investigation. But the broader lawsuit, which also seeks millions in restitution and penalties and a bar on President Trump and his three oldest children from serving on the boards of other New York charities, is proceeding.
Whew, Baron is safe.

Wouldn't it be ironic if the judge orders that all the assets be given to a legitimate charity, like the Clinton Foundation?

Barron. I forgot about him. His father seems to have, too.
To be fair to Trump, the only person for which Baron exists is Melania.

Ivanka is clearly Trump's favorite. The meddlesome twins probably don't register unless they **** up. Poor Baron is an old man's child. He was never going to get the same level of recognition.

That's not Trump's fault. Melania needed insurance.

I can't understand that. I don't find it difficult to love all of my children.

His whole family is wrapped up in this, and they were chanting to lock others up. What a bunch of disgusting liars.

Sure bro, but you aren't exactly jet setting every other week or being anywhere but around your kids...

Not hard to love someone when you're there.

Whole different ballgame when the age difference is nearly 60 years if not more and the kid you're raising has a royal's name. Oh, and you got 2 (3?) different ex-wives to pay child support to...

The state tax evasion charges may be serious.
