New York State Attorney General Barbara Underwood sued President Donald Trump and his children, Ivanka and Eric Trump on Thursday.
Ivanka and Eric Trump serve as directors of the Trump Foundation. The lawsuit states that there was: “extensive and persistent violations of state and federal law,” and Underwood is “seeking restitution of $2.8 million plus penalties.”
Frank Figliuzzi, former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence, told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace that Trump’s family corruption must be a “genetic trait.”
“It’s widespread corruption. It’s a genetic trait apparently. This is going to be tough for him because it touches directly on Ivanka and Eric with their roles in the charity,” Figliuzzi said. “It’s a reminder to Trump that you may have federal issues. You can fire Mueller, you can fire Rosenstein, but there are state attorneys generals out there that you still have to deal with. You are not above the law.”
