Raw Story:

President Donald Trump could face "legal consequences" for fundraising scams that were uncovered by The New York Times.

On Saturday, the newspaper published a damning report titled, "How Trump Steered Supporters Into Unwitting Donations."

"An investigation from The New York Times reveals Trump's cash-grabbing tactics with donors which the former president's spokesman is not denying. The Times reports Trump's campaign made recurring donations the default, then doubled them in an operation nicknamed the 'money bomb,' unbeknownst to many unsuspecting donors," MSNBC's Alicia Menendez reported Saturday. "One retiree said they withdrew seven times from his account." <snip>

Millions of dollars obtained through these practices," Menendez noted. "While they may be shady, are these tactics illegal?"

"They may be legal, you have to be really careful," Wine-Banks replied.

"You don't expect a former president of the United States to be using these kind of tactics. This is the kind of thing you expect from, oh, scam artists who sell really low-quality products," she noted.
