Judge fines Trump $2 million for misusing charity foundation

68 Comments
By MICHAEL R. SISAK

A judge Thursday ordered President Donald Trump to pay $2 million to an array of charities as a fine for misusing his own charitable foundation to further his political and business interests.

New York state Judge Saliann Scarpulla imposed the penalty in connection with a lawsuit brought against Trump by the New York attorney general's office over the handling of the Trump Foundation's assets.

Among other things, the judge ruled that Trump improperly allowed his presidential campaign staff to work with the foundation in holding a fundraiser for veterans' charities in the run-up to the 2016 Iowa caucuses. The event was designed "to further Mr. Trump's political campaign," Scarpulla said.

Last month, Trump's lawyers and the attorney general's office reached agreements to dissolve the foundation and distribute about $1.7 million in remaining funds to other nonprofits.

As part of those agreements, made public Thursday, Trump admitted personally misusing foundation funds. He and the attorney general's office further agreed to leave it up to the judge to decide what penalty he should pay.

The settlement was an about-face for Trump. He and his lawyers have blasted the lawsuit as politically motivated, and he tweeted, "I won't settle this case!" when it was filed in June 2018.

Trump's fine and the charity's funds will be split evenly among eight organizations, including City Meals-on-Wheels, the United Negro College Fund and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Attorney General Letitia James welcomed the resolution of the case as a "major victory in our efforts to protect charitable assets and hold accountable those who would abuse charities for personal gain."

"No one is above the law — not a businessman, not a candidate for office, and not even the President of the United States," said James, a Democrat.

The president admitted, among other things, to improperly arranging for the charity to pay $10,000 for a 6-foot portrait of him. He also agreed to pay back $11,525 in foundation funds that he spent on sports memorabilia and champagne at a charity gala.

Trump also agreed to restrictions on his involvement in other charitable organizations. His three eldest children, who were members of the foundation's board, must undergo mandatory training on the duties of those who run charities.

Charities are barred from getting involved in political campaigns, but in weighing the Iowa fundraiser, Scarpulla gave Trump credit for making good on his pledge to give $2.8 million of the money raised to veterans' organizations.

Instead of fining him that amount, as the attorney general's office wanted, the judge trimmed it to $2 million and rejected a demand for punitive damages and interest.

The Trump Foundation said it was pleased by those decisions, claiming that the judge "recognized that every penny ever raised by the Trump Foundation has gone to help those most in need."

Trump Foundation lawyer Alan Futerfas said the nonprofit has distributed approximately $19 million over the past decade, including $8.25 million of the president's own money, to hundreds of charitable organizations.

At the time of the Iowa fundraiser, Trump was feuding with then-Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and refusing to participate in the network's final Republican presidential primary debate before the Iowa caucuses.

Instead, he held a rally at the same time as the debate at which he called on people to donate to veterans' charities. The foundation acted as a pass-through for those contributions.

James said the evidence of banned coordination between campaign officials and the foundation included emails exchanged with then-Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

In one email, a Trump company vice president asked Lewandowski for guidance on precisely how to distribute the money raised.

Trump also admitted in the agreements to directing that $100,000 in foundation money be used to settle legal claims over an 80-foot flagpole he had built at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, instead of paying the expense out of his own pocket.

In addition, the foundation paid $158,000 to resolve a lawsuit over a prize for a hole-in-one contest at a Trump-owned golf course, and $5,000 for ads promoting Trump's hotels in the programs for charitable events. Trump admitted these transactions were also improper.

As part of the settlement, Donald Trump Jr reimbursed the Trump Foundation for the cost of the portrait.

Further evidence, as if we needed it, of Donny's corruption. But, I'm sure you're correct, Trumpophiles, that Donny's corruption ended the day he was sworn in as president. You people are utter morons or willfully blind.

Trump: the judge "recognized that every penny ever raised by the Trump Foundation has gone to help those most in need."

These people really are bold, they regularly claim the exact opposite of reality. Most of us aren’t too stupid to see reality for his lies, but if the past four years has shown us anything it’s that his followers are stupid enough to believe anything he says without question.

How is this not a criminal thing? This seems to go beyond an oops. This was just an out-and-out scam.

Only Trump would use a charitable foundation as a scam mechanism. Bill Gates and Warren Buffet have given tens of billions of dollars to legitimate charities through the Gates Foundation and are actively involved in curing diseases, cleaning drinking water, etc. It should be noted that they're both Democrats.

Hiring only the "best people" .... but as we've learned, "best" is highly subjective and President Trump's idea about "best" is completely different from the rest of human kind. Or at least 99.9999% of us.

Amazing that he is not facing a criminal charge for embezzling charitable funds. A rich man who can't resist taking funds designed for the poor.

He's a disgrace to his position and his country.

In most countries this would at the least be a resigning matter.

Is that so. Why did he need to plunder his own charity, then?

I think he was careless and didnt have the correct accounting for how the money was used. Someone (an employee, not Trump) needed to keep personal funds and charity funds separate. They failed badly in this.

Basically this is great and makes up for the 2 million that was misused:

You ask a simple question - is it wrong to skim money off a charity and you can’t get an answer.

Moral degradation. It has seeped into the bones.

I answered it. When you are billionaire, I am quite sure that $10,000 doesnt even register with you.

An employee was responsible for handling this and didnt. You act like this was his only source of income and he stole it or something. An employee didnt keep personal funds and charity funds separate.

Now do the Clinton Foundation. Should they have accepted all that money from Russia and Ukraine?

Fair enough. Meanwhile...

Most Americans are benefiting financially and otherwise from Trump's economic policies as more people are getting jobs in the booming economy, their 401Ks are rising and fewer are on welfare and food stamps.

All in all...

Trump 2020 all the way!

Maybe you need to read the article a little more closely...

*As part of those agreements, made public Thursday, Trump admitted personally misusing foundation funds. He and the attorney general's office further agreed to leave it up to the judge to decide what penalty he should pay.*

Note "Trump admitted personally" - no spinning to say this was some underling's fault.

Loser...

Yes, that is leadership when you take personal responsibility for the mistakes of your staff.

Do you really think Trump was doing the accounting himself? If so, he got his accounting degree from Trump University, because he didnt do very well.

What? Are we going through the time machine again when he was a businessman? Look, I will say this, if you think that Trump did some funky business dealings before he got into office, he probably did, he is the quintessential poster of a successful businessman with ups and downs, now mirror that to the career politicians and all their dealings when it comes to political favors and deals, I don’t know if you’ve ever been to D.C., but it’s a small connected community where everyone knows everyone and the foreign money that runs through it and their prime real estates and new schools, shopping malls, if you were to dig deeper (that would ask for the media to do its job) Russians and Ukrainians would be the last thing on the Democrats minds and the swamp they swim in. The scandals would be so big, they would have to create a dedicated cable channel 24/7 just to cover all of them.

Trumpeteers are diving into the fascism pool at an amazing speed. As an American I'm amazed at how warped certain "citizens" in our society have become. Well, not in a good way obviously.

It's simple... don't dip your hands in your "charity" till because it automatically becomes a SCAM. And once again, Trump was found GUILTY in a court of LAW of wrongdoing by misappropriating campaign finances. Doesn't matter that he admitted doing wrong, it matter's that he intentionally did wrong in the FIRST PLACE. It's called CORRUPTION.

But Trumpeteers are fascists, so it doesn't matter to them at all. As long as they can be ruled by a dictator they'll close their eyes and cover their ears to not see what they don't want to see, and not hear what they don't want to hear.

Impossible, liberals are the ones that created the “#metoo” movement, The PC culture, meltdowns of historic figures they don’t agree with, pushing us to use plastic straws, telling us what we can or what we cannot eat, or what we should watch or how we should watch it.

As an American I'm amazed at how warped certain "citizens" in our society have become. Well, not in a good way obviously. 

I second that.

It's simple... don't dip your hands in your "charity" till because it automatically becomes a SCAM.

Washington has been and is one of the most corrupted institution in this country.

But Trumpeteers are fascists,

If that means not allowing liberals to dictate and force feed us their BS to take in as facts, then maybe.

so it doesn't matter to them at all.

As long as they can be ruled by a dictator they'll close their eyes and cover their ears to not see what they don't want to see, and not hear what they don't want to hear.

*reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns discusses Sen.

"He is not worth nearly as much as he claims to be," Reid said.*

Scarpulla gave Trump credit for making good on his pledge to give $2.8 million of the money raised to veterans' organizations.

Yet he badmouths PTSD vets as 'weak' and gloats about using Guardsmen as his own private chessmen to put up barbed wire at the Rio Grande on a Thanksgiving Weekend, toiling unnecessarily for his egotistical selfish glory. He has a vendetta about the hero John McCain because he himself is a bone-spurs whiner and draft-dodger. He publicly lipped off about a Muslim officer who gave his life in duty during the Iraq War, and he shamed his Gold Star widow in public!

Trump has also publicly saluted a NK officer. He is not worthy to stand next to a military veteran. He abuses them and sasses off about them like the juvenile punk that he is. He is not worthy to give an address in NYC on this upcoming Veterans Day. Even the never-served-either Obama has more respect for the military than this Mussolini.

Giving $2.8 M to veterans' organizations doesn't even come close to making up for all the spitting, jack-slaps, kicks in the crotch and unnecessary endangerments that he gives the troops and veterans! Judge Scarpulia isn't punishing this thief nearly enough.
