The lawfare against President Trump continues following his guilty conviction in the ‘hush money’ witch hunt.

The New Jersey Attorney General’s Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) is reviewing the liquor licenses at multiple properties owned by Trump, Fox News reports.

A spokeswoman for the office said it’s reviewing whether the guilty conviction would impact Trump’s ability to hold liquor licenses.

“State law prohibits anyone from holding a liquor licenses who has been convicted of a crime ‘involving moral turpitude,’” the Associated Press stated.

“ABC is reviewing the impact of President Trump’s conviction on the above referenced licenses, and declines further comment at this time,” Attorney General Matthew Platkin’s office told Fox News Digital.


Fox News reports:

The liquor licenses at the Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck, Trump National Golf Club Pine Hill, and the Lamington Farm Club are all implicated in the review.

Former Attorney General of New Jersey Gurbir Grewal tried to pull the liquor license from Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck in 2019, citing a fatal car accident caused by an intoxicated driver leaving the club.

From the Associated Press:

Part of what goes into that calculation is a requirement that “a person must have a reputable character and would be expected to operate the licensed business in a reputable manner,’’ according to the division.

Its handbook goes into further detail, saying, “the term `moral turpitude’ denotes a serious crime from the viewpoint of society in general and usually contains elements of dishonesty, fraud or depravity.”

Trump owns golf courses in Bedminster, Colts Neck and Pine Hill in New Jersey, each of which has an active liquor license.

He no longer owns any casinos in Atlantic City, where his former company, Trump Entertainment Resorts, once operated three.

Messages left Monday with Trump’s presidential campaign, as well as with The Trump Organization, the former president’s company, were not immediately returned.

Trump is scheduled to be sentenced in the New York case on July 11, shortly before he is to receive the Republican nomination for president in the November general election.
