New York brings justice to Trump

CNN is reporting that the state of New York is suing conservative Republican President Trump and his charitable Trump Foundation for violations of law that includes self-dealing. That means the Foundation used money not for charitable purposes but to benefit Trump.

We know that the Trump Foundation bought personal stuff for Trump in the past. There was the six foot painting of Trump. (The Hill.) The foundation also bought a Tim Tebow football helmet. (Chicago Tribune) The hypocrisy is that Trump often complained about the Clinton Foundation which is a legitimate charity while the most corrupt President in history has been self-dealing.

I've said this before. Trump will try to pardon his way out of his collusion with Russia. But the states can fight back. He cannot pardon his way out of state law violations. They can bring Trump to justice for the multiple violations of law he has done. Since some of the crimes occurred in New York, the location of Trump Tower, it's up to New York. In the words of Frank Sinatra, "It's up to you New York." (Video below.)

This fall, vote liberal Democrat if you want to live.
