Complaint Alleges The Trump Corporation Illegally Practiced Law Over the Past 2 Years

https://hillreporter.com/...ears-23329


A Massachusetts lawyer has filed a complaint in New York state alleging that President Donald Trump’s company improperly and illegally provided consulting services to Trump’s campaign over the past two years.

The lawyer who filed the complaint, J. Whitfield Larrabee, provided PDF documents of his filing to Hill Reporter on Monday morning. Within those documents, there are several instances noted in which the president’s re-election campaign, filing legally required documents to the Federal Elections Commission, paid the Trump Organization tens of thousands of dollars at a time for services provided by the corporation related to the campaign between the two-year timespan of 2017 and 2018.

Within the field labeled “Purpose of Disbursement,” the campaign inserted the explanation of “legal consulting” from the Trump Organization in the box on those forms. Overall, more than $178,000 in fees within 11 instances were paid to the Trump Organization from Trump’s re-election campaign, Larrabee says.

The payments could spell trouble for Trump and his sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump. It is against the law for corporations to practice law in the state of New York. The Massachusetts lawyer further noted in his filing that state law forbids “officers, trustees, directors, agents, or employees of corporations from directly or indirectly assisting corporations to engage in the practice of law.”

“By allowing his campaign to pay The Trump Corporation $178,300 in 11 payments for legal consulting, Trump could face charges for assisting the corporation in the illegal practice of law,” Larrabee wrote in a Medium blog post discussing his recent filing. Each specific charge could render those found culpable up to a year in prison, the lawyer noted in his blog.

I doubt that he will get very far with the complaint, but if he does, Trump, Jr. and Eric could face jail time, and Trump, Sr. could also be charged.

Every single thing this criminal does is illegal. LOCK HIM UP.
