The Democratic attorneys general in two states will investigate the Christian nonprofit led by an attorney for President Trump after a news report said it misused the money it raised.
The Guardian reported Tuesday that Jay Sekulow used his nonprofit, Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism, to direct more than $60 million to himself, his family and their related businesses since 2000.
On Wednesday, the Guardian reported Josh Stein, the attorney general of North Carolina, and Eric Schneiderman, the attorney general of New York, plan to probe the operations of the nonprofit.
Stein told the Guardian in a statement: "The reports I've read are troubling. My office is looking into this matter."
Sekulow founded CASE in 1988 and also serves as chief counsel for its sister organization, the American Center for Law and Justice.
Appearing on television on an almost daily basis in recent weeks, Sekulow is the public figure of Trump's legal team representing the president in investigations into ties between his campaign associates and Russia.
