Hot off the press from the Sanchez for Senate campaign:
Kamala Harris Takes Donald Trump Campaign Contributions During Federal Lawsuit Against Trump University; Remains Silent on Trump University for six years
Orange, CA – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez issued the following statement today after the New York Times and San Jose Mercury News/Bay Area Newspapers Group this week reported on the questionable motive behind campaign contributions from Donald Trump to California Attorney General Kamala Harris.
“Again, we see that Attorney General Kamala Harris fails to protect the people of California. It is shameful that she accepted campaign contributions from Donald Trump long after a federal lawsuit was filed by California consumers against Trump University in April 2010.
“Yet Kamala Harris accepted $5,000.00 in September 2011 from Donald Trump, another $1000.00 in 2103 from Donald Trump, and $2000.00 in 2014 from Ivanka Trump.
“These campaign contributions raise troubling questions about Kamala Harris’ inaction on Trump University.
“Kamala Harris should immediately produce all documents regarding Trump University between the Attorney General’s Office, her campaign for Attorney General and her campaign for U.S. Senate.
“The people of California deserve to know why Kamala Harris accepted money from Donald Trump with a pending lawsuit filed against Trump University by California consumers and she did nothing to investigate.”
