(New York, NY) -- New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is ready to make a criminal referral against the Donald J. Trump Foundation. The governor's legal advisor said today the state is prepared to provide New York's attorney general with a criminal referral on the matter, if asked. David Alphonso noted the move comes "at Governor Cuomo's direction." New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood filed a civil lawsuit against President Trump and the Trump Foundation in June. It accused Trump of violating federal law by using the nonprofit as a personal checkbook for his 2016 presidential campaign and other expenses.
