“These are obviously very serious allegations, and they should be referred to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York,” George Conway tweeted Sunday morning. 

The New York attorney general’s office filed a lawsuit against the president and his foundation last week, alleging that Trump and his charity violated federal and state laws.

The lawsuit includes allegations that the Trump campaign directed how donations held by the Trump Foundation should be distributed, and that the charity made an unreported $2.8 million in-kind donation to the campaign.

The attorney general’s office also sent a pair of referral letters to the Federal Election Commission and the IRS, saying the charity may have violated federal election and tax laws.

The referral letters came as New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood's (D) office filed a lawsuit against the foundation, seeking its dissolution.

Conway has appeared to use Twitter to criticize Trump and his administration in the past — last month he shared tweets knocking the president for a Memorial Day tweet touting his achievements.
