Trump May Owe IRS More for Foundation's Political Donation

The $25,000 he transferred from the foundation to Bondi was an illegal donation; charitable groups can not give to campaigns.

Who can blame them?

The $25,000 from Trump's foundation wasn't the only support Bondi received from the Republican.

The group has also filed an IRS complaint against the Foundation for allegedly being used illegally to benefit Trump's campaign. "He uses his foundation's money to pay off your attorney general", Clinton told the crowd, according to Politico.

Hillary Clinton's campaign has been trying to draw more attention to the controversy surrounding Trump's foundation, routinely noting a disparity in coverage between the two foundations.

As the Washington Post reported, Trump did break federal tax law by donating money from his tax-exempt charity to a political campaign and was fined $2,500 by the I.R.S., but no definitive proof has surfaced that Trump or Bondi violated federal bribery law.

Trump University was being sued for fraud. Now political reporters are paying closer attention to Donald Trump's foundation. "Never spoke to her about it". They have suggested that, in turn, those donors were given special access to then-Secretary of State Clinton and her staff.

"If Donald Trump has proven anything over the past three years, it's that he'll do anything to pursue his freaky but predictable vendetta against this office", Eric Soufer said. "Despite Trump's spokeswoman claiming, "all is squared away" with the IRS because Trump or the Foundation paid a penalty, we checked, and the Foundation still has not corrected false information on its tax return, nor did the penalty address the false statements on tax returns or the new allegations raised in today's complaint".

The donation - which was solicited by Bondi, according to the Associated Press - was received four days after Bondi's office announced that it was reviewing fraud allegations made against Trump University in a NY class-action lawsuit.

"It's a political witch hunt and nobody's going to bully me by threatening me, accusing me of things that aren't true into not supporting the candidate of my choice, " Bondi told News Channel 8's Keith Cate at the RNC in July.

HORSLEY: Noah Bookbinder is executive director of a liberal watchdog group called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which filed a complaint over the contribution back in March.
