At a campaign rally in Iowa, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was still refusing to let go of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal with which to attack his Democratic rival.
With technical experts who set up her private server refusing testify before a congressional committee, Trump is claiming its a travesty of justice:
“This is a far bigger scandal than Watergate ever was. But with Watergate, we had justice, we had a Justice Department that went after the people. Here’s something, nobody’s ever seen anything like it, folks.
Whether its her emails, her disasters in Iraq, Libya and Syria, or her failures on the economy, which has been a disaster, Hillary Clinton lacks the judgment, temperament, and moral character to lead this country.”
But Trump is himself coming under scrutiny. New York’s attorney general has launched an investigation into the Trump Foundation. The move follows a series of damning reports surrounding the charity.
It is believed the probe will focus on several topics including the charity’s 2013 $25,000 donation to the Florida Attorney General’s campaign after her office said it was considering legal action against Trump University. Charities are barred, under IRS, rules from making any political donations.
The probe will also focus on purchases the charity purportedly made for Trump, including a $20,000 portrait of the mogul. Such purchases are also against IRS rules for charities.
In addition, The Washington Post recently reported that Trump hasn’t donated to the charity since 2008.
So far the Trump campaign has not responded to news of the investigation.
