The New York Daily News reports:
The National Rifle Association may have committed fraud by trying to declare bankruptcy earlier this year, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Sunday, pointing to the gun group’s heavy spending on advertisements.
The NRA’s attempt to declare bankruptcy was dismissed in May by a federal judge in Texas who said it was a bad faith effort to weasel out of a lawsuit from New York Attorney General Letitia James.
Now Schumer is calling on the Justice Department to investigate whether the NRA’s bankruptcy claim amounted to fraud or other offenses.

The U.S. Department of Justice must investigate if NRA committed fraud or other offenses ASAP
