The New York Attorney General is going after the Drumph with both guns blazing. So far, the cases have been Civil, both in California and New York. With the strong statements by the NY AG, that may change over to criminal. Calling out the Judge in California was pure childish petulance.
What may indeed happen here, is that other Trump scams may also come under the legal microscope. Hid Vitamin supplement, and water business seem likely targets. If Trump wins the election, he may be the first President to start office…
The Trump campaign is doing its best to spin the embarrassing revelations that came out this week about Trump University, but New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman isn’t having any of it. Appearing on Morning Joe on Thursday, Schneiderman tore through any questions about whether Trump University was a legitimate enterprise or not by forcefully making the case that it was “straight up fraud.”
“It’s like selling people something you say is a Mercedes and it turns out to be a Volkswagen,” Schneiderman said. “And even if some people say, ‘Well actually, I kind of like the Volkswagen,’ it’s still fraud because it’s not a Mercedes. This was not a university.”
Schneiderman then went into detail about how Trump blatantly lied about Trump University in marketing videos aimed at prospective students.
“Trump’s role was really a the pitchman,” he said. “And we’ve got his videotapes, and we’ve got his sworn testimony which undercuts every statement in the videotapes. He said, ‘My hand-picked experts will teach you my personal secrets.’ He and the president of the university have already testified under oath he never met the instructors, they weren’t hand-picked. They weren’t experts — some of them came out of fast food and retail. And he had nothing to do with the supposed secrets that were taught because he had nothing to do with the curriculum.”
