A bomb -- Malik Rory -- -- -- the half brother to the president is -- pulling a fast one and raising money for himself or is the Barack H Obama foundation actually helping to pour.
So far the organization's nonprofit status is still.
Very very unclear Bret -- tried to find some clarity take -- -- The foundation claims to be a tax exempt federally recognized nonprofit.
But it is not the national legal and policy center reports.
The organization did not but didn't register rather in Virginia in 2008 but has failed to -- since -- requirement for soliciting donations there.
There are no expense filings on record something the IRS requires of larger charities the -- Obama tells fox the organization is registered.
And his quote at this stage of infancy fueled only by its mission and vision to help others.
This afternoon I called the president's brother in Kenya at first I got an answering machine for Malik Obama.
OK -- -- called again and this time -- and answered.
He wouldn't could identify himself put over the next twelve minutes he kept insisting that -- Obama did nothing wrong at times the conversation got heated.
As the person.
The person try to explain like why we should not be interstate it in the league Obama at one point he told me.
-- Obama is nobody wiry -- why are we interested in him.
I had several times from to identify himself to no avail so -- mystery phone friend in Kenya why do you have.
The week Obama's name on your answer machine lets welcome attorney can result of who specializes in fraud cases sir have you looked into this case.
And we have not have not looked into it very closely I've just gotten some of the Faxon and in fact some of -- is something that we're missing here is.
-- Home we really need more facts to develop this and and be able to espouse.
An opinion about you know exactly what's going on.
Well apparently there are people who are questioning whether or not is a legal and he can can they solicit funds if they haven't applied for our tax exempt status with the IRS.
First with the -- -- -- a question for me.
They can solicit funds and it happens it's not ordinary it's not customary but the IRS does allow.
Charitable organization to file their paperwork.
Up to 27 months after their form.
Literally it's just that number 27 months if they do what women if they make the filings within 27 months it's fine.
And everything is retroactive -- they can they can raise funds during.
Now one step further Brett Baer pointed out that at one point they were registered in Virginia but then.
They let that registration laps are they allowed two solicit funds in the state of Virginia.
Technically know when your when your charter or lapses you -- Out of business whether -- a regular corporation number charity -- it is something that's fixable.
But it's definitely not the way that business is -- war for that matter charities one or short -- -- let me -- out to the panel -- listening here are we making a lot.
Out of nothing or or is it is -- concerning should not be concerning to us that here's a man -- -- using the Barack H Obama foundation using the name.
All of the president granted it's his father's name as well -- Clearly using the name is the president to attempt to raise funds.
Yeah I think it's corruption and I mean that's the kind of thing that shouldn't be tolerated.
I think it's shameful and and you know he's just taking advantage of the fact that his Brothers president.
It reminds me what happened we know with Neil Bush.
Who do you know got caught defrauding an -- and -- cost the American people billions of dollars so this -- that this is the kind of thing you know you think back to Billy Carter.
You know these Brothers I think they -- a lot of trouble but this is there's no excuse for this because you know what the people who are getting hurt are people who care about poverty in Kenya and the Kenyans themselves.
And it sounds like this guy is just the clowns would be good to get him out here.
I had twelve minute conversation with and Gibson today I don't know who I believe is that an exam.
Literally had an answer machine said Malia Obama on it I call back -- obviously the guy he was angry that got angry at me he was angry at fox surrogate why did you go chase bin Laden at what point.
-- loans -- but that's what I want -- it's.
Why are you going after Obama's mother why you calling her a prostitute I said what are you talking about I think it's simply look for -- -- not a good practice there did you think that.
Has got the biggest interest in shutting down this as one put it corrupt brother is Brock gates for Obama to junior.
Who has the IRS at his disposal and can say -- -- shut down corrupt organizations carrying my name I advise the president do this.
That he if he gets a corrupt charity out of business.
He that he has no further embarrassment.
And we had to point out Monica he was the best man at that the president's wedding.
Right on -- -- photos of the of the two of them they're not exactly did get in or alienated in it in anyway but it I'd let one is right.
Every president has embarrassing family members the question with this embarrassing family member is.
Is he committing fraud and John is absolutely right -- president of the United States this story comes to light.
You should do everything within your power and the powers of the presidency -- -- In order to shut this thing down and get it off the radar so it doesn't metastasized and become a bigger scandal sort of assert.
What is the litmus litmus test what's the that the level the bar that -- -- that it.
Two to clear.
So that he doesn't commit fraud.
Well he's got to keep -- charter and intact he's got to file with the IRS he's got to file financial reports in application he's got to file tax returns.
And this is a situation where it's it's the old expression where there's smoke there's fire.
When you've got you've got a non filing it actually has gone beyond 27 months that's partially bad you've got a -- of the charter -- say bad.
One plus one is but fixable.
Well when a scenario one pick up once you get beyond 27 months that's not fixable anymore so again you still need to.
You still need to -- you know.
Double don't develop the facts but it's not -- fantastic and -- -- leave it there I think it can be.
