It surely has nothing to do with the election. And of course, the Clinton Foundation is going to be investigated, right? …Right?
New York Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman is making sure that the Trump Foundation is above-board.
He hasn’t looked into the Clinton Foundation, but he’s unlikely to do that. Ever.
The New York State attorney general’s office has opened a broad inquiry into the Trump Foundation, the office confirms.
The inquiry concerns, among other things, Donald Trump buying a portrait of himself and a donation to a group supporting Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, a Trump supporter, according to a source in the office.
The question is whether Trump Foundation made accurate disclosures, a source said. Further details about the portrait and other donations were not immediately available.
The contribution to Bondi’s fundraising committee has drawn scrutiny because her office declined to join a lawsuit against Trump regarding his now-shuttered school, Trump University.
“Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is a partisan hack who has turned a blind eye to the Clinton Foundation for years and has endorsed Hillary Clinton for President,” Jason Miller, a Trump adviser, said in a statement. “This is nothing more than another left-wing hit job designed to distract from Crooked Hillary Clinton’s disastrous week.”

You know what you’re going to hear, that’s unfair to call Schneiderman partisan just because he’s doing the ‘right thing’.
Check this out:
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who opened an investigation into the Donald J. Trump Foundation on Tuesday, is a major Democratic donor who maxed-out to Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2015 with a $2,700 donation…
…The timing isn’t just odd because of the proximity to the election. Schneiderman already has one lawsuit going against Trump University, which is a real estate seminar company associated with Trump.
Not only is Schneiderman a donor to Clinton’s presidential campaign, he also sits on her New York campaign committee.
A look at his donation records via OpenSecrets.org finds Schneiderman has given $12,000 to Democratic candidates and political committees since 1992. And he’s never given to the Republicans.

So, Schneiderman hasn’t looked into the Clinton Foundation, even though it doesn’t follow the usual formula for a charity and some call it a ‘Clinton Slush-fund’?
