After Trump's Arrest, New Jersey is Looking at His Golf Club's Liquor Licenses

New Jersey’s attorney general’s office is looking into whether Trump’s recent conviction in the New York hush money case could make it harder for him to keep liquor licenses at three of his golf clubs in the state.

As of Monday, a spokesperson for the office of the attorney general stated that the liquor licenses at Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck, Lamington Farm Club, and Trump National Golf Club Pine Hill are still valid. Trump has a golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. It is called the Lamington Farm Club.

In an email, a representative for the New Jersey Attorney General’s Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control said, “We are looking into how President Trump’s conviction will affect the licenses in question and will not make any further comments at this time.”

The law in New Jersey says that no liquor license can be given to anyone under the age of 18 or who has been accused of a “crime involving moral turpitude.” In the division handbook, it says that “moral turpitude” crimes are “those deemed serious by society.”

It also says that people who want to get liquor licenses must have a “reputable” character and run their businesses in a “reputable manner.”

Last month, a jury found the former president guilty on 34 counts of falsifying business records related to a payment he made to Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer, to back up Stormy Daniels’ story that she had an affair with Trump.

The former president denied having a romance and said he was not guilty. Four days before the Republican National Convention next month, where he is expected to be officially named the GOP’s presidential candidate, he is set to be sentenced.

He has also promised to review the decision.
