On July 27, 2018, Free Speech For People joined with over a dozen public interest groups to urge the Internal Revenue Service to pursue an investigation of the Trump Foundation for possible criminal acts.

“Our laws grant tax-exempt status to foundations and other charitable organizations on the condition that they operate exclusively for charitable purposes—not to promote political candidates or pay off private debts,” the letter states. “Yet according to the [New York State Attorney General’s] two-year investigation, the Trump Foundation repeatedly and blatantly engaged in just such prohibited activities. Failure by the IRS to respond energetically to such shocking allegations of misconduct would send the wrong message to other Americans about the need to adhere to our tax laws and the impartiality of their application.”
