Florida’s attorney general Pam Bondi personally solicited a political contribution from Donald Trump while she considered joining an investigation of alleged fraud at Trump University and its affiliates, AP reports
Trump’s $25,000 donation to Bondi came from a Trump family foundation in a likely violation of rules surrounding legitimate activities by 501 C (3) charities, which are not allowed to engage in political grant-making. And Justice for All, a political group backing Bondi’s re-election, reported receiving the check on Sept. 17, 2013 — four days after Bondi’s office publicly announced she was considering joining a New York state probe of Trump University’s activities.
What a coincidence!
This was a bribe, ladies and gentlemen, and an unusually obvious one.
Bondi’s a crook, and an unethical lawyer. Trump, meanwhile, is Trump.
Do you wonder that he said that “it is a rigged system”? No wonder he thinks that: he’s helped rig it.
