There are three inquiries into POTUS’ affairs or rather Trump’s. The New York Attorney-General ie chief court prosecutor, The New York Southern District, SOVNY, another aggressive prosecutor of malign misbehaviour in big business and mafia, and of course the FBI under Mueller. All are co-operating and sharing information. I hope I have that straight, I am open to correction.
For decades, the New York attorney general’s office had been little more than a glorified consumer-protection bureau, targeting shady landlords and businesses for abusive practices. In the early 2000s, the hard-charging new man Spitzer raised the profile of the office—and himself—by going aggressively after New York City’s banking industry. He earned himself the moniker the “Sheriff of Wall Street” by forcing major financial firms to shell out billions in fines for defrauding investors.
Newly appointed, but very experienced, Democratic Attorney General Barbara Underwood, filed a lawsuit in June, claiming the Trump Foundation, his charity “was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality.” The suit seeks $2.8 million in restitution and the foundation’s disbandment. Trump family members are caught up in this.
The aggressive Underwood has continued the inflammatory rhetoric stating publicly “that she considers her battles with the President `the most important work [she] has ever done’ and has vowed that such `work will continue.”‘
The hot news however is the Kavanaugh supreme court nomination, the vectors and pressures over this issue coil around so swiftly any comment is immediately redundant.
