In a new statement, former President Trump ripped NY prosecutors and their case against him.
According to a new report from Politico “Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance has indicated he does not currently plan to charge the Trump Organization with crimes related to allegations of ‘hush money’ payments and real estate value manipulations, according to a personal lawyer for Donald Trump.”
Trump said in a statement “After hundreds of subpoenas, over 3 million pages of documents, 4 years of searching, dozens and dozens of interviews, and millions of dollars of taxpayer funds wasted, they continue to be ‘in search of a crime’ and will do anything to frighten people into making up the stories or lies that they want, but have been totally unable to get,”
Trump also caledl the investigation into the Trump Organization “a continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt of all time.”
“They will do anything to stop the MAGA movement (and me), even if it involves prosecutorial misconduct and harassment of a political opponent, which they are using at levels rarely seen before,” Trump said. “They leak, they lie, and they campaign based on information that has already been gone through in other of the many investigations I have put up with.”
Per The Hill “Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr.’s (D) office has reportedly been investigating an array of potential financial misconduct, including criminal fraud, involving the Trump Organization. Vance earlier this year convened a grand jury to weigh criminal evidence against the company and its top executives.”
“Vance is now working alongside New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) after the two separately investigated Trump’s business. The Washington Post reported prosecutors were looking at potential charges against the Trump Organization as an entity as well as its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg,” the report adds.
