Rush Limbaugh: New York AG Files Suit Against Trump Foundation To Distract From IG Report (Video)

On Thursday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his much-anticipated review on FBI and DOJ actions during the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

But the MSM tried to ignore that and reported another stupid news about President Trump and his family!

The New York Attorney General has sued Donald Trump, the Trump Foundation, Donald Trump Jr, Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump on the grounds that they took advantage of their positions within the Trump Foundation and acted on their own interests instead of the charity’s.

The lawsuit alleges illegal activity that took place over more than a decade, including “extensive unlawful political coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing transactions to benefit Mr. Trump’s personal and business interests, and violations of basic legal obligations for non-profit foundations.”

“As our investigation reveals, the Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality,” Underwood said in a statement. “This is not how private foundations should function and my office intends to hold the Foundation and its directors accountable for its misuse of charitable assets.”


The attorney general is seeking to dissolve the foundation under court supervision and obtain restitution of $2.8 million, plus additional penalties.

Well according to Rush Limbaugh this was just a setup!

Here is the transcript from
RUSH: But there’s something else happening out there, folks, not by accident and not by coincidence. There is a lawsuit that’s been filed today by the new attorney general in New York state. Now, it’s actually the work of the shamed and dispatched former attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, who was forced to resign over sexual misconduct allegations.

It’s the same Eric Schneiderman who completely exonerated the Clinton Foundation, saw nothing to investigate there. But New York state has filed a lawsuit against the Trump Foundation today, including Trump and his children, claiming that they were using it to personally enrich themselves and that they weren’t making significant and proper charitable donations. Folks, the Clinton Foundation was a total shell game. New York State chose not to investigate it. But the point is this. This is not an accidental news story, nor is it coincidental.

The reason this lawsuit was filed today was to give CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC a reason not to report on the inspector general report. And so what we’re gonna have today — and there will be some exceptions. But what we’re gonna have is so-called conservative or new alternative media talking about the IG report, and the Drive-By Media not talking about it. They will be talking instead about the alleged crimes and sleaze involving the Trump family regarding this lawsuit filed by the New York state attorney general.

So they’re gonna just ignore the IG report, which tells me there’s stuff in it that they don’t like.
