"You're listening to Bloomberg Law with Joon Grosso from Bloomberg Radio. The New York attorney general is suing to dissolve the NRA, accusing the gun rights group of engaging a massive fraud against donors. Attorney General Leticia James claims that pop sorry officials, including its longtime leader, Wayne LaPierre, have been using the nonprofit organization as their personal piggy bank. Illegally diverting more than $64 million from the organization. In the last three years alone, they use millions upon millions of dollars from the for personal use. Including for lavish trips for themselves and their families, private jets, expensive meals and other private travel. My guest is Second Amendment expert Adam Winkler, a professor in law school. Adam, the New York Eiji alleges massive fraud, corruption and self dealing. But breath of it is stunning. What strikes you most about the allegations? We'll just the breath of them. There's so many allegations that does seem like the NRA leadership has been running the organization without much oversight from the board of directors that their insider deals for directors. There's officers like Wayne LaPierre that negotiated a secret $17 million and the patient package for what He leaves the sounds like something you'd expect of a Fortune 500 company, not a nonprofit organization. Like the NRA, William Brewer, the NRA's lawyer, said. The truth is, the transactions in question have been reviewed, vetted and approved. It seems like that would be a hard defense to make in light of some of these expenses, like the private jets for LaPierre is family. And more than a quarter of a million dollars in designer clothes. How can they prove that those kinds of expenses were proper? Well, I think they really have no choice because the actual transaction happens. They can't deny that they haven't on under New York law. Nonprofits can't engage in some kind of insider deals, but Two with longtime ad agency Ackerman McQueen, aka MacLean was responsible for the messaging for more than three decades. And it really worked hand in hand with the NRA, including creating an R V and been the brainchild behind so much of what we associate as the NRA message, and that lawsuit is very nasty, and a lot of leaks have come out that suggests that there's been Malfeasance inside the LRA, But it was nonetheless pretty surprising these allegations for two reasons. One they were surprising allegations such $17 million compensation package for Wayne LaPierre that hasn't come out previously. Also that the remedy sought by the New York attorney general dissolution of the Ray is the kind of remedy that's really reserved or organizations that engage in persistent fraud or illegality, So it was really remarkable and surprising that such a broad and aggressive remedy was chosen. Well, this isn't the first high profile cherry that James has targeted. But the allegations in our suit against the Trump Foundation just pale In comparison to these allegations, Trump dissolved his foundation voluntarily. But the NRA is not going to do that. What are the chances that they would actually be required to dissolve? Well, it's really hard to say. Obviously, it seems hard to imagine that the NRA vast national organization with chapters in every state and training programmes for police officers. Would actually go out of business. It seems pretty crazy just in the sense of this such a big organization. We wouldn't expect that he's such a thing. The Trump Charitable Foundation was put out of business, but it was only Donald Trump in a few people who work for him who were organizing that terrible foundation. It wasn't nearly the size of the bag. I think that makes dissolution a little bit less likely, because there's goingto be plenty of things that the NRA has been doing that's perfectly legal, perfectly appropriate. But I think that this is an opening salvo in these kinds of situations regulator often bring their charges to begin a negotiation and it's really the negotiated settlement that really determines what the remedy will be expecting this case. It'll probably be something like removal of certain directors or officer of some restitution for some of the deals and transactions that have gone on. But disillusions probably not in the cards in a long run to the NRA, so this is not likely to go to trialling. In your view. Well, hard to say, You know, I don't want to predict the future too much, one of the things about requesting disillusion as a remedy. I think it does sort of put the LRA back to the wall and make it may be less likely that they will engage in a negotiated settlement if the attorney general has simply saw it. To remove certain directors and certain officers like Wayne LaPierre and appoint a receiver to oversee the appointment of new directors for a short period of time. It's the kind of thing that could have put pressure on other board members to push for settlement and for a reform, But now that this illusion is on the table, I think it's going to be a long while before we get a resolution in this case. Adam. The NRA countersued, accusing the attorney general of violating the group's free speech rights and unfairly targeting the gun rights lobby are those strong claims. I think the NRA suit is baseless and not going to go anywhere. Let these allegations were first brought to light by the Rays lawsuit with it. That agency no matter who the attorney general Wass whether it was Letitia James, who clearly doesn't like the NRA has said so or someone else, they would have had to take action in light of the grievous nature of some of the entire deals that the leadership has engaged in. And I don't think that arguing the prosecutors are politically motivated, really ever got any defendant very far in a court of law, The DC attorney general also sued the NRA. How does that play in here? No, I'm sure that these prosecutions are related about these actions by the attorney general of the Sea and the attorney general of New York are somewhat coordinated and that they're sharing information and the same basic set of facts. The Honore has two different nonprofit organizations charitable arm that's chartered in Washington, D. C. That's the one that they, D C attorney general is going after and the National Rifle Association that we often think about the organization that's formed in New York and that the attorney general of New York is going after This lawsuit, plus the infighting that preceded it, and the drain on resource is affect the political That listen to the NRA and that really care about gun rights. Onda pose gun control. I think those voters are still going to make their voices heard Come Election day at the same time. There's no way that all this this organization and disarray and focus of the NRA on this lawsuit with Akram Mental clean and now on the lawsuits by the New York and D C. Attorney general, How can that not be a distraction for top leaders probably won't be able to spend that kind of time and energy focusing on the 2020 election that they'd like to Thanks, Adam. That's Adam Winkler of the law school..

So what kind of wrongdoing did the New York A GI accused the NRA? There's been a pretty long pattern. A lot of this actually came out before and lawsuit internal lawsuit within our Ah, that agency and in all right, but basically a lot of sweetheart deals. Ah, a lot of travel and expenses that are quite lavish being paid for, by the way that the attorney general that should have been You know, when we came up here, the head of the NRA would go on in charter private chance he went to Beverly Hills onions spent hundreds of thousands dollars on clothes were really kind of lavish, lavish spending that does not sound very kosher. What is she asking for? What kind of remedies is she asking for in the lawsuit? Well, that's interesting because she's saying what she wants to go down the Nara and she made a comparison with the Trump Foundation, which the attorney general of New York shut down because that was involved in corrupt practices. But the NRA is You know, a large organization that not only did you know the foundation and the lobbying group. I mean, it's an extremely large membership organization as well. So you're not just talking about affecting the chilled family here you're talking about. Ah found upon thousands of people regular tourist large membership, So it's very different order and a Don't know of shutting down the Nara is actually what will come from this, but that is what she says she wants.

They've got all kinds of legal expense is kind of not just from the attorney general, but from this extensive lawsuit with their former and agent. Ah, and they've got a thing that they've kind of been hemorrhaging money of last few years. Now that being said they still have access to their membership to and so there's money. You know they're capable of getting money if you just need to stop spending as much if they've been spending And of course, I guess you wanna keep troubling check having spending spring that Gloria isn't Beverly Hills. There are a few things you may want to cut out of your expensive well, How is the gun movement in general doing during the pandemic? Usually it's things like this raise guns. Gun sales have been absolutely gangbuster pretty much in coded hit in spring. People lining up Initially. Firearm sales and fear are Are very intimately linked. They go hand in hand, so peeking in frightened about something. Some of them will go out and buy a gun. That's what happened. But you know that has been robust. By the same token, you know, Honore and the gun movement in general are not attending the kind of results they were hoping to get out of a Trump administration and all of a a conservative Supreme Court. So they've been a little bit frustrated in their efforts there. Not a lot of success Nationally, they still have ah, certain red State where their agenda has gone through. Ah, you know very easily. But they're being pushed back dramatically in a lot of blue states, California, New York, Connecticut elsewhere and so on the one hand, the manufacturers are doing well failed her up. On the other hand. Inman, legislator world Getting a lot of pushback now groups that are opposed to them that we're actually doing pretty well. Also the Supreme Court. As you mentioned your column, the Supreme Court has been turning away gun cases and according to leaks that led to CNN articles about the court, it's Chief Justice John Roberts, who the other conservatives don't see as the fifth vote they need. To change gun regulations. I don't know about the leaks. I assume they're correct. Um what? What is clear is that there doesn't seem to be 1/5 row right now because The court rejected 10 different cases just this term Ah, that they could've accepted and in a lot of gun rights advocates were certainly hoping they would accept. Uh, and kind of ran through another trifle ruling. Well, well, they've got it, You know? Well, they've got that high for majority but did not happen. Court did not take cases. So basically, we've not really had Any major Supreme Court decisions on guns about 20 can we have the Heller decision in 22,008 that established an individual right to be in possession and then 2010 case MacDonald that extended that city state and really there have been a lot of activity. After that? The court has dodged a lot of these cases, which I think is frustrated. Munera another gun like Ah, So just taking a big picture. Look at the ages. Case. Is it likely to cause a lot of problems for the NRA in any way? Or is it just going, Teo years and years and years of litigation? There'll be some litigation. Munera is already countersuing. But the allegations are very serious. I mean, you're talking about a a nonprofit that basically using members, Dunes is a piggy bank for their top executives to be lavishly paid and fed it really of very luxurious starlets. Not really. The way a nonprofit you're supposed to function in a lot of inquired of dealing there, you know, putting family members and friends on the payroll, So that's not just an image problem. There will be consequences. I'm sure whether it actually shutting down the NRA is another matter. Maybe work out a settlement where Growing up here, and some of the you named people in the suit will have believe, and they will have to clean up their finances. You know that There are a lot of different ways that this could be handled so I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that this is the end.
