"Then-President-elect Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka were warned in 2016 that the family business was overcharging the nonprofit presidential inaugural committee — and let it happen anyway, according to a suit filed Wednesday by the Washington, D.C., attorney general.

In the civil complaint, Attorney General Karl Racine charged the Trump inaugural committee and the Trump Organization with using around $1 million of charitable funds to improperly enrich the Trump family."

    What is a million between friends? Can I say let me know when it is a billion and I will care? Or not.

    Trump has a history of not paying arenas and police for his rallies. I’m surprised he paid this one. Oh wait, it was a a Trump Hotel! That’s different.

    It is, indeed, Trump's modus operandi. Why such an affluent man consistently cheats those he deals with is beyond me ...

    Surely not, such fine upstanding citizens wouldn’t do such a thing ./s

    Wasn't the Inaugural Committee being investigated? Did Barr squash that one?

    Trump-U, Trump Foundation, Inaugural Funds, etc. Team trump has nothing over Hunter when it comes to taking easy money, the difference is that team trump steals the money.

    Laws, schmals, who needs them. Certainly not the Trump's.

    Inflating the cost of their properties is normal for the Trump family when They are spending our tax money. This is not a one off. Here is more.

    Maybe it would be easier to list what Trump and family have done that is legal.

    They are fleecing American taxpayers and the GOP is covering for them.

    And their base cheers them on.
