BREAKING: NY AG announces “We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity”

According to a new report from Axios “the New York attorney general’s office said Tuesday night it has informed the Trump Organization that its investigation into the company “is no longer purely civil in nature” and is now a criminal one.”

Fabien Levy, a spokesperson for NY AG Leticia James, said in a statement “We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan DA.”

Per Politico “James’ office is undertaking a sweeping probe of former President Donald Trump and his family over allegedly misstating property values to get tax benefits. In February, the Supreme Court paved the way for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s team to get eight years of Trump’s tax returns and financial records as a part of Vance’s criminal probe into potential tax, insurance and bank fraud.”
