And that's why we avoid throwing rocks while living in a glass house.

If the Democrats were all clean choir boys and girls, great, launch everything. Except they are not clean, they play as much dirty politics as they accuse of Republicans.

Point being, before launching an attack, should check around make sure it won't boomerang back on allies.
Political adversaries have spent years trying to pin something on the Clinton Foundation and have continually failed to come up with any real evidence of wrongdoing. Which hasn't stopped Trump and his allies from insisting that Hillary belongs in jail.

What the Trump Charitable Foundation did was very clearly a violation of the law, using charitable donations to pay Trump's legal bills and for political purposes. Collecting money under false pretenses. Skimming money to stuff their the Trump family's pockets.
Going after them was a no-brainer for any prosecutor, regardless of politics.

Barr will now launch an investigation into the Clinton foundation...
That is how he works. That is the shiny object Trump waves at his supporters to hypnotize them from actually looking at the wrongdoing he commits. They really don't care about this court decision because they don't actually care that Trump is scum cheating even non-profit donors.

It still has to hurt HIS BIGLY ego. The law filed suit and the law WON. We won't be seeing a tweet about this ... or maybe we will.
:cool:
Agreed. $2M isn't chump change, especially for someone whose assets are tied up on real estate, corporations and anything else that's not just simple cash in the bank.

LWers like to talk about Trump's taxes. There's nothing illegal in there since, if there was, the IRS would have seen it and handed it over to the FBI. What's in there is just information embarrassing to Trump such as how much money he has tied up on Russia, how little he gives to charity or how much money he made off of his "charity".

Coming up with $2M in cash is going to cost him more than just the cash. He'll have to sell off assets, maybe at a loss, and possibly at a taxable hit.

The DOJ already investigated the Clinton Foundation.

His sponsors have deep pockets. Or there's his bottomless re-election funds.
