On a hunting trip to Mongolia earlier this summer the US president’s son Donald Trump Jr killed a rare species of endangered sheep. A permit for the killing was retroactively issued after Trump met with the country’s president, according to new reporting from ProPublica.

Trump was accompanied by security from both the US and Mongolia on the trip, the outlet reported. The argali sheep, with its large horns, is considered a national treasure there, and permission to kill one is “controlled by an opaque permitting system that experts say is mostly based on money, connections and politics”.

Any one of you could do the same hunt. Just contact the linked outfitter and agree to the price. https://asianmountainoutfitters.com/project/argali/

 

I'm pretty sure that I can't afford it but I hear Don Jr can. It's a non-story.

You're dealing with people who abused the FISA court, the FBI and CIA to spy on a presidential candidate but want to impeach and remove a president who "pressured" a well known country for corruption to....investigate corruption.....🤣

 

Meanwhile, they supported a president who assassinated his own citizens without due process and outside a war zone.

President Donald Trump has paid $2 million in a court-ordered judgment for misusing his charity, New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement Tuesday.

"Not only has the Trump Foundation shut down for its misconduct, but the president has been forced to pay $2 million for misusing charitable funds for his own political gain," James said. "Charities are not a means to an end, which is why these damages speak to the president's abuse of power and represent a victory for not-for-profits that follow the law."

 

Last month, a federal judge ordered Trump to pay the $2 million in damages after the foundation admitted in a settlement that the president personally misused foundation funds to help his 2016 presidential campaign, settle personal legal disputes and buyportraits of himself and sports memorabilia.

The $2 million will go to eight different charities: Army Emergency Relief, the Children's Aid Society, Citymeals-on-Wheels, Give an Hour, Martha’s Table, the United Negro College Fund, the United Way of National Capital Area, and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. Trump also agreed to distribute the remaining $1.8 million in the foundation's coffers among those same charities.

Each charity will receive a total of $476,140.41. The settlement also called for mandatory training requirements for the now-defunct foundation's directors — Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump, which James said each has undergone.

"Funds have finally gone where they deserve — to eight credible charities. My office will continue to fight for accountability because no one is above the law — not a businessman, not a candidate for office, and not even the president of the United States," James said.

Alan Futerfas, an attorney for The Trump Organization, said that the company is satisfied with the outcome.

"The Foundation case settled weeks ago with all issues resolved and all funds going to charity. We are very pleased with the result," he said in an email to NBC News.

The Trump Foundation, the charitable organization started by Trump in 1987, agreed to disband in 2018 and give away its assets after a probe by then-acting New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood revealed a "shocking pattern of illegality" that included "unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more."

James took over the case in 2019 when she was sworn in as attorney general and continued the lawsuit against Trump and three of his eldest children, who served on the charity, and barred them from serving on any charities in New York state.

jerra...why are you being a TDS hack ? You forgot to post the below that comes from your link as you celebrate a charity being shut down:

 

Taking "into consideration that the Funds did ultimately reach their intended destinations, i.e., charitable organizations supporting veterans, I award damages on the breach of fiduciary duty/waste claim against Mr. Trump in the amount of $2,000,000," she wrote.

 

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Trump Foundation said the organization "is pleased to donate an additional $2 million" to the groups.  "Following the 2016 presidential election, the Trump Foundation publicly announced its intention to voluntarily dissolve and distribute all of its remaining funds to charity," the statement said. "Unfortunately, that donation was delayed due to the Attorney General’s politically motivated lawsuit."

 

The spokesperson also said "we are pleased that the court" rejected the attorney general's "frivolous request for statutory penalties, interest and other damages."

The three-decades-old foundation reached a deal with the New York Attorney General to shut down in December 2018 amid the lawsuit. Authorities claimed Trump ran the foundation as an extension of his business empire and presidential campaign.

Last month, Trump said James had deliberately mischaracterized the settlement for political purposes. The foundation's attorney argued that the lawsuit was politically motivated, which a judge rejected.

jesus these trump brats are all scumbags. the three were ordered by a judge to attend classes to learn that stealing from a charity is wrong.  the batshit doesn't fall far from the tree.

What does one's stance on abortion have to do with one's stance on hunting?

 

 

so it is ok to waste a living creature to get ones nuts off?

I guess y'all should bill yourselves as anti-choice not pro life since killing animals for fun shows a wanton disregard for life.

Lets see...for 30 years Trump Foundation had a spotless record and dispersed the $$$ before any legal proceeding were initiated.

 

Here is why ultraliberals hate Fox News:

 

(left out of your link)

 

James' office had requested $2.8 million in restitution and a $5.6 million penalty, but Judge Saliann Scarpulla...declined to issue a penalty.

 

Also that the Trump Foundation raised $19 MIL and it all went to charity with no ADM cost.

Who says the animal is wasted? Nobody appreciates the animals hunted or pay as much to support them as hunters. Where do you think all the money for conservation comes from?

 

Hunters kill animals for meat, sport and trophies. Abortion kills people just to be evil....and worse, they force the rest of us to pay for it. By contrast hunter pay their own way and then some.

the fact that the judge issued no penalty is not a big shock- although I did not see that in the link-

 

however I saw this link and it was pretty interesting,

So Dusty took a CRI Ancestry Test at the urging of his late brother Willy, who passed away before Dusty could receive his results.
 
That’s a shame, because Dusty discovered something that would have shocked his late brother. With his CRI Genetics DNA test, Dusty was able to trace his ancestry back a whopping 17,000 years.
 
More surprising than that, he found that his North American ancestry was OLDER than the land bridge that once connected Siberia to Alaska—and that he’d been told in school was the place his ancestors came from.
 
Instead, Crawford’s results suggest that his ancestors came not by bridge, but by boat—as his closest genetic ancestors come from the Pacific Islands, not Siberia.
 
The current theory is that Crawford’s ancestors—some of the first people to set foot in the Americas—came by boat to South America. They would have then worked their way North over many generations of travel.
 
In fact, remains found in Peru contain DNA from the same haplogroup as Dusty Crawford—meaning that he can trace his lineage DIRECTLY back down to Peru—and back across the Pacific Ocean.

I don't know if he ate the sheep but he eats a lot of the game he kills. Why would I be joking?  Again, hunters pay more toward conservation than the rest of you.

 

Fortunately there are a a lot of us who don't share your opinion of hunting.
