CREW Statement on Trump Foundation

Following the announcement of the shutdown of the Trump Foundation, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) Executive Director Noah Bookbinder released the following statement:

“The Donald J. Trump Foundation has abused the rules governing non-profit charitable foundations and admitted to breaking the law. It appears to have operated primarily to benefit Donald Trump. CREW filed complaints calling for investigations into the Foundation for improper political activity, lying on its tax returns, and self-dealing to benefit Donald Trump, among other problems. It is good to see this illegality and abuse finally coming to an end.”
