    So next year at tax time, does Schneiderman have to claim the $15,000 "donation" he received from Obama to investigate Trump University as income?
    Can Obama claim the 15 G's as a business deduction?
    How does that work, exactly?
    Any tax people herein?

    Also, can I claim the singles I stuff into a stripper's thong as a charitable donation?

    Not necessarily, but since you brought that crook up...

    Does it seem just a scosch odd to see Obama throw his money at ensuring an investigation (or is it a simple security inquiry?) in a state in which he does not reside against his party's chief opponent for his replacement (odd enough just on its own, yet it gets odder still), while REPEATEDLY rejecting the FBI's requests to investigate the Clinton Foundation?
    Sure, the CF is at last being investigated (no, not another security inquiry), but Obama was never asked to donate any money in order to prime the pump on this one: he simply flat out denied their multiple requests.

    Odd, don't you think?

    You wish.
    You were hoping such a gift would happen just to see a reduction in your yearly subscription rate.

    A lot of people are saying Trump... why hasn't he released his tax returns? - he donated to NAMBLA. Smart people, good people. Trump should release his tax returns. He won't release his tax returns because he donated to NAMBLA. Sad!

    Maybe he is dyslexic and thought he was donating to ALBMAN, or buying an Albanian Mansion.

    I assume you're referring to the National Association for the Decrease of Venality in Government...

    ...or...

    (wait for it)

    NAMBLA?

    Accusations from the Donald normally are reality challenged:

    As for Trump’s claim that Schneiderman met with Obama and then “got a campaign contribution,” it’s pure fantasy.

    In 2010, three years before Schneiderman sued Trump, and five years before Trump announced he was running for president, Schneiderman was running for state attorney general in New York. In October 2010, Schneiderman’s campaign received two separate contributions from lawyers at a California law firm, Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd. One donation, for $5,000, came from partner Michael Dowd. Another contribution, for $10,000, came from Patrick Daniels, also a partner.

    Six months earlier, in April, Robbins Geller Rudman and another California law firm jointly filed a class-action suit in California on behalf of customers who said they’d been defrauded by Trump University. At the time, Trump wasn’t a candidate for president, Schneiderman wasn’t attorney general and Gonzalo Curiel wasn’t the judge in the case. In fact, Curiel wouldn’t be appointed to the federal bench until 2012, two years after Trump’s case got underway in California.

    How Trump leapt from these facts all the way to a secret payoff meeting between Schneiderman and Obama is vintage Trump. It’s as if he took all the things that happened over a six-year period, compressed them into one day and poured them into an extremely implausible John Grisham novel.

    Amusingly, Trump donated $12,500 to Schneiderman’s campaign in 2010.

    When you say 'people,' I assume you mean 'robots,' as in a Reddit user thought it would be funny to get up to the microphone and make a fart noise, so he created a bot which linked every 'Trump tax return' search with 'donation to NAMBLA.'
    Ah, those rascally Reddit fellas: just a barrel of monkeys.

    Accusing Trump of patchwork embroidery is quaint, considering this is Huffington Post's modus operandi .

    I was just being sarcastic. But not that sarcastic.
