READ: AG Barbara Underwood Announces Trump Foundation Will Shut Down by Court Order Due to ‘a Shocking Pattern of Illegality’

Whoa.

After years of intense scrutiny regarding its financial practices, the Trump Foundation will be dissolved by court order.

In a scathing statement, New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood operated as a piggy bank for President Donald Trump.

Underwood said:

“Our petition detailed a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation – including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more. This amounted to the Trump Foundation functioning as little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump’s business and political interests.”

The foundation will dissolve under judicial supervision and must disperse its remaining assets to legitimate organizations approved by the office of the New York Attorney General.

The Trump Foundation was notorious for its misuse of funds years before the court order, when revelations that $258,000 of donations went toward legal settlements and $20,000 was used to commission a portrait of Donald Trump.

The statement was lauded by many.

Americans everywhere were relieved to see that the corruption wouldn’t go unchecked.

But that was just the beginning.
