New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood filed a lawsuit against the Donald J. Trump Foundation, President Trump, and other Trump family members Thursday, alleging that the foundation's directors and officers violated laws governing charities.

The details: The suit seeks to dissolve the foundation for "its persistent illegal conduct" and restitution of $2.8 million, plus penalties. The alleged illegal conduct includes improper and extensive political activity, self-dealing transactions and failure to "follow basic fiduciary obligations."
