(TheRedAlertNews.com) – In one of the stranger allegations of a crime the staff at Red Alert News has come across, an ethics watchdog organization has filed a criminal complaint against one of former President Donald Trump’s golf resorts for displaying the presidential seal of the United States of America at a time when Trump is no longer president.
As Mediaite reports in, “Criminal Complaint Filed Against Trump’s Saudi Golf Tourney-Hosting Resort After Presidential Seal Spotted on Course“:
“Former President Donald Trump’s New Jersey golf resort is facing a criminal complaint after the presidential seal was spotted on the course that will host the Saudi-backed LIV tournament.
“Citizens for Reform and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has filed a Justice Department complaint against Trump National Golf Club Bedminster — site of the controversial Saudi-backed LIV Golf series that has drawn protest from 9/11 families and defiant support from Trump — citing chapter and verse they say shows the club is violating federal law by using the presidential seal on golf tee markers that were spotted in an Instagram post.” [emphasis added]
In its complaint, CREW states, in part:
“Unlawful use of the presidential seal for commercial purposes is no trivial matter, especially when it involves a former president who is actively challenging the legitimacy of the current president. We therefore urge DOJ to promptly investigate this matter and take appropriate corrective action, including, if necessary, seeking criminal penalties and injunctive relief to halt improper use of the seal.” [emphasis added]
