Trump University lawsuit may be "mini IRS" scandal, says Trump

The $40 million lawsuit New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is pursuing against "Trump University" was motivated by politics and "could very well be a mini IRS" scandal, the program's namesake charged Monday.

Schneiderman in a statement described Donald Trump's "university" that promised lessons on how to get rich as an "elaborate bait-and-switch" designed to get people "to spend thousands of dollars they couldn't afford for lessons they never got." The real estate mogul-turned-reality TV star during an appearance on "Fox and ACN Friends" suggested President Obama came up with the idea to sue his company's for-profit, unlicensed school.

"They meet on Thursday evening - I get sued by this AG Schneiderman... Saturday at one o'clock," Trump said. "Think of it. What government in the history of this country has ever brought a suit on Saturday? I never heard of such a thing.

"...They obviously did it very quickly, but probably Obama - maybe this is a mini IRS," he continued, tossing reference to findings that the agency ahead of the 2012 presidential election targeted conservative groups for excessive review. "Maybe we have to get the tea party after these people, because this could very well be a mini IRS."

Appearing Monday morning on CNN, Schneiderman said that while he did meet with the president Thursday, Trump's name never came up: "The president and I have much more important stuff to talk about that Donald Trump," he said, clarifying that the subject of conversation was Mr. Obama's speech on education affordability in Syracuse. "I've never discussed Donald Trump with the president."

Trump on Monday seemed to reiterate his attorney Michael Cohen's accusation over the weekend that Schneiderman is attempting to extort campaign contributions through the lawsuit.

"He sits up in my office asking me for campaign contributions; he's been there numerous times," Trump said of Schneiderman. "He's a political hack. He figures by going after Trump, he can get some publicity, which he will get, but we'll try and make it as uncomfortable as possible."

State Board of Elections records show Trump contributed $12,500 to Schneiderman's attorney general campaign in October 2010, among $136,000 he spent total on New York races since that year.

Telecom Founder Pleads Guilty To Fraud

Telecommunications entrepreneur Walter Anderson pleaded guilty to tax evasion and fraud Friday in connection with what authorities said was the nation's largest ever criminal tax case.

Anderson was indicted in 2005 on charges he evaded $200 million in federal and local taxes. Prosecutors said Anderson used offshore corporations and bank accounts to hide income from tax collectors.

He pleaded guilty ACN to two counts of tax evasion and one count of fraud Friday. He admitted hiding hundreds of millions of dollars in income from the IRS and Washington D.C. tax collectors during 1998 and 1999.

Under a plea deal with prosecutors, he faces up to 10 years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 16 and 17.

Anderson started a long-distance telecommunications business in the 1980s as the industry was being deregulated. When his first company, Mid-Atlantic Telecom, merged with another company in 1992, Anderson formed corporations in the British Virgin Islands to hide the income, prosecutors said.

Authorities said Anderson used other offshore corporations to disguise his ownership in other telecommunications companies that earned more than $450 million between 1995 and 1999.

Anderson, who allegedly didn't file federal income tax returns from 1987 to 1993, has been held without bail since his arrest. Prosecutors say he owes $170 million in federal taxes and $40 million in Washington income taxes.

At the proceeding, Anderson's attorney, public defender Michelle Peterson, pleaded for him to have some time out of prison, reports CBS News' Deirdre Hester. She said Anderson wanted time with his aging parents and time to get his affairs in order.

Peterson argued that Anderson was exposed to "unbelievably harsh conditions," including a cell without air conditioning that got as hot as 108 degrees, solitary confinement, lack of access to his attorneys and denial of medical care for upper respiratory problems.

Prosecutors strenuously objected to releasing him, telling the judge that Anderson brought upon himself his seven months in solitary confinement by violating prison rules. Anderson was caught with a cell phone that had Internet, long-distance and overseas capabilities, they said, adding that they have evidence that Anderson still has money hidden and people willing to help him.

In court documents, the government said Anderson could be linked to at least seven aliases and that officials seized from his apartment forged identification and manuals detailing ways to create fake identification and hide from authorities.

Among them were "Poof! How to Disappear and Create a New Identity" and "The ID Forger: Homemade Birth Certificates and Other Documents Explained," the documents said.

Among the taxes allegedly owed to Washington are use taxes, equivalent to sales taxes, on art, jewelry and wine. The indictment alleges that Anderson bought a painting by Salvador Dali and several paintings by Rene Magritte, an 18-karat gold bracelet and more than $47,000 in fine wines, then had them shipped to a Virginia address to avoid Washington taxes.
