The Trump Foundation's treasurer didn't know he was treasurer until investigators told him

Alan Weisselberg seemed to know he was the Trump Organization's CFO. But he could've listed another job on his resume, and he didn't even know it.

President Trump's longtime loyalist is also listed as the Donald J. Trump Foundation's treasurer, which would've held him accountable in a new lawsuit filed by the New York attorney general Thursday accusing the nonprofit of illicit spending. But Weisselberg wasn't aware of his position until a New York state investigator told him, The Washington Post reports.

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood alleges in the lawsuit that, based on two years of investigation sparked by a Post investigation, the foundation was benefiting the Trump family instead of the public.

But first, Weisselberg told an investigator there wasn't a policy determining how the nonprofit spent its money, per the Post. The investigator then asked if Weisselberg knew he's been on the Trump Foundation's board for over a decade. He didn't.

Of course, it's hard to remember being on a board that hasn't met since 1999. Read more about the lawsuit at The Washington Post.
