The president and his family have been under heavy legal scrutiny from Robert Mueller, but the special counsel is not the only thorn in Trump’s side. The attorney General of New York, Barbara Underwood, has revealed that a compromise has been reached, and the end result of that deal is the closure of the Trump Foundation.
Underwood’s spokesperson Amy Spitalnick released the news Tuesday morning on Twitter. This is what the post said:
“NY AG Barbara Underwood secures a stipulation dissolving the Trump Foundation under judicial supervision, w/ AG review to ensure charitable $ goes to reputable orgs,” the tweet said. “This is a key piece of the relief sought in her June suit.”

The lawsuit continues:
