Trump U: Most Infamous Scam and Rip-Off Since Madoff Ponzi Scheme

Major Update (posted here after the following was earlier posted):

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton moved Friday to muzzle a former state regulator who says he was ordered in 2010 to drop a fraud investigation into Trump University for political reasons.

Paxton's office issued a cease and desist letter to former Deputy Chief of Consumer Protection John Owens after he made public copies of a 14-page internal summary of the state's case against Donald Trump for scamming millions from students of his now-defunct real estate seminar.

Owens, now retired, said his team had built a solid case against the now-presumptive Republican presidential nominee, but was told to drop it after Trump's company agreed to cease operations in Texas.

Original Post: Trump University from here in part:

Lawyers suing presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for fraud over his Trump University real estate seminar program are making public more of his testimony in the case, including how he batted away questions about whether instructors in the program intentionally lied to students.

Attorneys pressing a pair of class-action suits against Trump also made a move Friday that could increase the political pain for the GOP presidential candidate: they said they’re planning to file with a federal court in San Diego excerpts of videos of Trump’s two recent depositions in the case. That’s likely to trigger a battle over whether the videos should be made public.

The newly-filed transcripts of portions of Trump's testimony provide more fodder for Clinton and others charging that Trump University took advantage of people in financial straits looking to make quick cash.

This race just got a whole lot more interesting. Stay tuned.
