“There’s been a wholesale use of taxpayer assets by the Trump family led by the President of the United States. It’s almost as if he’s acting in the true form of a crook to take taxpayer money and to use it for private business,” Mr. Kopp said, according to a San Francisco Examiner report.
“Donald Trump, Jr.’s use of tax-payer funded Secret Service for his personal security during private business trips abroad gives the appearance of an intertwining of the presidency of the United States and the Trump Organization,” the lawsuit said.
According to the lawsuit, the Secret Service rejected Mr. Kopp’s FOIA request in May because it was deemed too broad an required a request for specific records. Mr. Kopp argued that it is impossible to meet that requirement and it was a higher standard that FOIA actually required.
