Judge Nap Looks At New York State's Planned Trump Fdn Criminal Probe
New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is opening an investigation into the Donald J. Trump Foundation, Shepard Smith reported Wednesday.
In response, Trump’s campaign called Schneiderman, a vocal Hillary Clinton supporter, a “partisan hack”
“This is nothing more than a left-wing hit job designed to distract from Crooked Hillary Clinton’s disastrous week,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller said.
Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew P. Napolitano said Schneiderman is investigating an allegation of bribery by the foundation that occurred in Florida, where the group gave $25,000 to a SuperPAC supporting Sunshine State attorney general Pamela Bondi.
Bondi is a Republican and Trump supporter.
Bondi’s office was apparently investigating Trump at the time, but the investigation was curtailed around the time of the donation.
The IRS fined the DJT foundation $2,500 for the illegal gift, which the foundation said was made as a clerical error—it should have come from Trump personally rather than through his foundation.
Trump “has a long and unhappy history here in New York with Schneiderman,” Napolitano said on Shepard Smith Reporting, noting that Schniederman’s Albany office is also probing Trump University.
“I doubt that anything will come of this before Election Day,” Napolitano said.
“Don’t know where this is going to go.”
