WE WILL BRING YOU THE PRESIDENT’S REMARKS LIVE WHEN THEY HAPPEN. AND THIS IS BREAKING THIS HOUR, THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION ACCUSING NEW YORK’S ATTORNEY GENERAL OF CARRYING OUT A

POLITICAL VENDETTA AS SHE ANNOUNCED A NEW LAWSUIT THAT LOOKS TO DISMANTLE THE ORGANIZATION. THIS IS "OUTNUMBERED OVERTIME." I’M HARRIS FAULKNER.

THE NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL FILED A LAWSUIT TODAY AFTER 18 MONTHS OF INVESTIGATION. SHE SAYS THAT REVEALS GRAVE MISCONDUCT AMONG SOME OF THE NONPROFITS NONPROFIT’S MOST

HIGH-PROFILE FIGURES INCLUDING THE ALLEGATION THEY USE THE GUN DISTRIBUTE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN FUNDS FOR THEIR PERSONAL USE. >> THESE YEARS OF FRAUD AND MISCONDUCT, WE ARE SEEKING AN

ORDER TO DISSOLVE THE NRA IN ITS ENTIRETY TODAY. WE SEND A STRONG AND LOUD MESSAGE THAT NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. NOT EVEN THE NRA.

>> Harris: IN THE LAST 20 MINUTES WE’VE BEEN COVERING THE BREAKING NEWS ON THIS, THINGS HAVE HEATED UP. THE NRA HAS COME BACK WITH A STATEMENT TO END OUR LAURA INGLE

IS ON THE JOB. LAURA? >> HI, HARRIS. THE NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL A SHORT WHILE AGO OUTLINING THE STUNNING ALLEGATIONS AGAINST THE

NRA AND FOUR TOP EXECUTIVES WITH A LONG LIST OF MISDEEDS THAT SHE SAYS HAVE ALLEGEDLY DRAINED THE ACCOUNT OF THE LONG-STANDING ORGANIZATION FOR YEARS. NEW YORK’S TOP LEGAL OFFICER

FILING THE LAWSUIT TODAY IN STATE SUPREME COURT IN MANHATTAN AGAINST THE NRA AND THE EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE POWERFUL GUN RIGHTS GROUP, STATING THAT INVESTIGATORS HAVE

BEEN LOOKING INTO THE FRAUD ALLEGATIONS SINCE FEBRUARY OF 2019. NOW THE LAWSUIT CLAIMS THAT SEVERAL TOP LIEUTENANTS ENGAGED IN A DECADES LONG PATTERN OF

FRAUD TO IRRADIATED THE FUNDS OF THE NRA FOR PERSONAL GAIN, DRAINING THE ORGANIZATION OF $64 MILLION IN JUST THREE YEARS, SAYING THEY’VE BEEN USING MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS FROM THE NRA FOR PERSONAL USE, INCLUDING FOR LAVISH TRIPS FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES, PRIVATE JETS, EXPENSE TO AND OTHER PRIVATE TRAVEL.

THE INVESTIGATION REVEALS THAT THE ORGANIZATION WENT FROM A NEARLY $28 MILLION SURPLUS IN 2015 TO A $36 MILLION DEFICIT IN 2018. LAPIERRE AND HIS KEY DEPUTIES

ARE ALSO BEING TOLD THAT THE LAWSUIT IS TO REPAY THE NRA, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ALSO ADDING THAT LAPIERRE RECENTLY SET HIMSELF UP WITH A POST-EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT WORTH

$17 MILLION, NEVER ASKING THE BOARD FOR APPROVAL. THE NRA, WHICH DENOUNCED JAMES AFTER SHE REFERRED TO THE GROUP AS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION RELEASED A STATEMENT THAT READS

IN PART "AS EVIDENCED BY THE LAWSUIT FILED BY THE NRA TODAY AGAINST THE NY AG, WE NOT ONLY WILL NOT SHRINK FROM THIS FIGHT, WE WILL CONFRONT IT AND PREVAIL."

PRESIDENT TRUMP, A LONG-STANDING SUPPORTER OF THE NRA WHICH HAS ENDORSED HIM IN THE PAST HAD THIS REACTION. >> THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A LONG TIME, THEY’VE BEEN

ABSOLUTELY DECIMATED BY THE COST OF THAT LAWSUIT AND IT’S VERY SAD BUT I WOULD SUGGEST THAT THAT’S WHAT THEY SHOULD BE DOING DOING. >> SUGGESTING TO RELOCATE AND

THE REASON THE NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL HAS REGULATORY AUTHORITY OVER THE NRA IS
