Despite the incessant propaganda put out by the Democrats and their media bootblacks that Donald Trump worships at the altar of Putin it is they who are behaving like authoritarians. Case in point is the story that New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is using the power of his office in order to open an investigation into Trump’s charitable foundation. Coming less than two months before the election it’s an obvious politically motivated effort to damage Trump undertaken by a known Clinton crony in order to benefit the Democratic party nominee.
According to The Hill “NY attorney general launches Trump Foundation inquiry”:
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is investigating Donald Trump’s foundation to see whether it’s complying with the state’s charity laws.
The Donald J. Trump Foundation is coming under increasing media pressure for misreporting a number of donations and using its money in a questionable fashion.
A source familiar with the matter confirmed to The Hill that the New York AG’s office has “opened an inquiry into troubling transactions with the Trump Foundation that have recently come into light.”
Schneiderman told CNN’s “The Lead” on Tuesday evening that his interest in Trump’s foundation connects with his role “as regulator of nonprofits in New York state.”
“We have been concerned that the Trump Foundation may have engaged in some impropriety from that point of view,” Schneiderman said.
“We’ve inquired into it and we’ve had correspondence with them. I didn’t make a big deal out of it or hold a press conference,” he added. “We have been looking into the Trump Foundation to make sure it’s complying with the laws governing charities in New York.”
NBC News reported correspondence between the New York AG’s office and the foundation began on June 9 of this year.
Schneiderman made an enemy of Trump when he began aggressively pursuing fraud allegations against Trump University. He launched an investigation into the operation in 2013.
Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller released a statement Tuesday, calling Schneiderman “a partisan hack who has turned a blind eye to the Clinton Foundation for years and has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president,” according to NBC.
Shneiderman is indeed a partisan hack and this flagrant attempt to mount legal persecution against a presidential candidate in order to tip the scales to the party in power is deeply troubling and something typically seen in a banana republic or old Soviet bloc satellite state. The Clinton lackey in the New York AG’s office isn’t the only one either, House Democrats have written a letter demanding that Obama’s Justice Department also begin an investigation into Trump.
The Washington Post takes a break from pimping conspiracy theories that Putin poisoned Hillary to report “House Democrats ask for Justice investigation as New York AG looks into Trump Foundation”:
Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are asking the Justice Department to investigate the circumstances surrounding a $25,000 donation the Donald J. Trump Foundation made to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi at a time when her office was considering whether to open a fraud investigation of Trump University.
The letter, signed by all the committee’s Democrats, alleges that the donation in 2013 “may have influenced Mrs. Bondi’s official decision not to participate in litigation against Mr. Trump,” and asks Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch to explore whether federal bribery or other laws might have been violated.
If the seriously compromised Loretta Lynch complies with the Democrats who wrote the letter it would only serve as more evidence that the United States has ceased being anything that even remotely resembles a democracy under the Obama regime. Political harassment of opponents of the party in power, the possible Department of Homeland Security intervention in the election and the endless spewing of propaganda by Hillary’s media shills are more befitting of a fascist dictatorship – but that is essentially what America has become in 2016.
