Lawsuit against Trump's alleged campaign finance violations to proceed

A state judge ruled late Friday that a lawsuit brought by New York's attorney general against the Trump Foundation for alleged violations of campaign finance law can proceed, according to Reuters, despite President Trump's request that the suit be dismissed on the grounds that the state's AG is "biased."

Why it matters: This is the second time this year that a New York judge has ruled that Trump can still face civil lawsuits, even as president, according to the New York Times. The lawsuit claims that Trump wrongfully gave $2.8 million worth of foundation donations to his campaign, used $100,000 to settle a dispute involving his Mar-a-Lago resort, and spent $10,000 on a portrait of himself to hang in one of his golf clubs. New York seeks to dissolve the Trump foundation with the lawsuit.
