WaPo Uncovers Trump’s Shady ‘Donation’ To Florida A.G. Investigating Trump University Fraud

Back in 2013, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was considering an investigation into whether the Florida operations of Trump ‘University’ were fraud. But then, as the Washington Post revealed, Trump made a $25,000 donation to her campaign and Bondi decided — completely independently of course — Trump University was perfectly legitimate.

According to WaPo, Bondi’s solicitation for the funds came days before her decision not to pursue an investigation into the now-defunct Trump University alleged defrauding of students.

This may look like a bribe. But Trump said there’s no proof at all that there’s quid pro quo here, no sir. Instead of giving Bondi’s group the money himself, Trump’s donation came from the Trump Foundation. So clever!

But there’s a little wrinkle in the deal. Turns out, this is illegal since charitable foundations aren’t supposed to be making political contributions.

The penalty for his crime? Donald Trump was forced to pay the IRS a $2,500 penalty after Washington Post revealed that Trump’s charitable foundation had violated tax laws by giving an ‘improper’ political contribution to Florida’s attorney general.
