Third-Party Descriptions

September 2016: 'Right around that time, as Bondi has admitted, she personally solicited a donation from Trump. In September 2013, Bondi “publicly announced she was considering joining a New York state probe of Trump University's activities.” Three days later, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, based in New York, made a $25,000 contribution to And Justice for All, a political group that backs Bondi. A few days later, Bondi announced that her office had declined to join the multistate suit or to bring suit in Florida. Six months later, in March 2014, Trump hosted a $150,000 fundraiser for Bondi at his Mar-a-Lago resort at cut-rate prices.'

December 2014: 'Attorneys general said they had no choice but to team up with corporate America. “When the federal government oversteps its legal authority and takes actions that hurt our businesses and residents, it’s entirely appropriate for us to partner with the adversely affected private entities in fighting back,” said Attorney General Pam Bondi of Florida, whose top deputy attended the meeting.'
