Sued for "self-dealing".

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The New York state attorney general sued U.S. President Donald Trump, three of his children and his foundation on Thursday, saying he illegally used the nonprofit as a personal “checkbook” for his own benefit, including his 2016 presidential campaign.

Barbara Underwood, the attorney general, asked a state judge to dissolve the Donald J. Trump Foundation and to ban Trump, his sons Donald Jr. and Eric, and his daughter Ivanka from holding leadership roles in New York charities. The three children joined the foundation’s board in 2006, although Ivanka stepped down to work at the White House in 2017.
Ouch.

"But what about the Clinton Foundation?!" incoming.

I have no doubt that these charges are legitimate, as Trump's charities had these issues before, but nothing will happen.

The GOP has made Trump bullet proof while the Dems are worried about gender pronouns and Black lives matters.

Trump won't even have to pardon himself.

Remember when Trump held that fundraiser for veterans instead of attending a debate?

Yeah, he stole half of the money ($2.8M) and used it for his campaign.

In January 2016 — right before the Iowa caucus — Trump threw a fundraiser for veterans instead of attending an upcoming primary debate. The Iowa fundraiser raised $5.6 million, with about $2.8 million going directly to the Donald Trump Foundation. (The rest went to directly from donors to veterans’ groups and bypassed the Foundation.)

But it was Trump campaign staff that directed the $2.8 million that went to the foundation. Emails and other evidence showed Lewandowski dictating the timing and amount of donations to various groups ahead of the Iowa caucus and at other points during the campaign, with the goal of promoting Trump and his candidacy.
Never want to hear any Trump follower ever again lecture anyone about respecting veterans. You voted for a man who stole millions of dollars from a charity event meant to support them.
