New York state's top prosecutor, Atty. Gen. Eric Schneiderman, has made inquiries into Donald Trump's nonprofit foundation after questions about impropriety have arisen. The following appear to raise concerns about the Trump Foundation:

o The Foundation donated $25,000 in September 2013 to "And Justice for All" — a political group connected to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. [Note: Nonprofit entities are prohibited from participating in partisan political activities, including making contributions to political parties.]

o Trump's Foundation allegedly paid $20,000 for a six-foot-tall portrait of Trump.

o At least one charity has alleged it never received the donation that the foundation said it gifted it.

The alt-right Trump supporters claim that this investigation is politically motivated. However, records indicate that the NY AG's inquiries were actually initiated in 2013---long before Trump was a presidential candidate.

Meanwhile, an investigation by the Washington Post reveals the following (see video below):

o The Foundation is funded almost exclusively by Trump's business associates. In fact, Trump has not made a donation to the Foundation in recent years. More importantly, the Foundation appears to be nothing more than a PR and business vehicle for Trump.

o The Foundation has not done substantial charitable work compared to other charitable foundations, such as the Clinton Foundation.

o Donations by private entities to the Foundation and the Foundation's donations to other charitable organizations appear to be based on quid pro quo---for example, the Foundation made a donation to a charitable organization after that organization used and paid for Trump's facilities.
