Donald Trump agrees to settle Trump University fraud law suit for $25 million

Published

The United States President-elect Donald Trump has agreed to settle multiple lawsuits naming him and his for-profit entity “Trump University,” which was sued for fraud among other causes of action following a scandal that involved the “University” offering a series of real estate seminars.

The New York Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, said in a statement on Friday that the settlement agreement is a “stunning reversal by Donald Trump and a major victory for the over 6,000 victims of his fraudulent university.”  According to Schneiderman, every named victim will receive restitution. Additionally, President-elect Trump will be required to proffer a chunky citation in penalties and fees, a sum of which may total up to $1 million.

“Donald Trump will pay up to $1 million in penalties to the State of New York for violating state education laws.”

Not even two weeks into his transition towards the White House, and our brand new President-elect has already begun to pay for illegal behavior and conduct. The Trump University fraud case did get some media attention during the middle portion of the election season, though media outlets demurred in favor of coverage of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s e-mails.

No criminal indictment or charges have ever resulted or even been filed in connection with Clinton, in the e-mail matter or any other matter. As of the date of this publication, she remains free from any wrong-doing in that matter, though the media made Secretary Clinton’s e-mails a central tenet of their coverage.

Despite this close examination of her e-mail conduct, a survey of Americans taken Friday evening* revealed that approximately no Americans are aware of exactly what was the alleged wrong-doing in the Hillary Clinton e-mail “scandal.”

* The survey was conducted with an approximate sample size of one (1) human female. The sample was presented in the form of one (1) neighboring resident of author’s apartment building who lives in direct proximity of and to him in the adjacent apartment unit.
