Trump finally accepts that Russia hacked US elections that produced him
Hours after Democrats in the US House of Representatives called for a federal investigation into a donation the Trump Foundation made to a political group, New York’s attorney general has disclosed that his office is investigating the charity organisation to determine whether it has abided by state laws governing non-profits.

“My interest in this issue really is in my capacity as regulator of non-profits in New York state,” Eric Schneiderman, the New York attorney general, told CNN on Tuesday.
