Trump lawyer says Manhattan DA won’t charge Trump with crimes

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.”

“Ronald Fischetti, a New York attorney who represents the former president, said on Monday that in a meeting last week, he asked Vance’s team for details on charges they were considering,” the report adds.

“According to Fischetti, members of Vance’s team said they were considering bringing charges against the Trump Organization and its individual employees related to alleged failures to pay taxes on corporate benefits and perks. It has been widely reported that those perks included cars and apartments and appear to only involve a small number of executives.”

Fischetti told POLITICO “We asked, ‘Is there anything else?’ They said, ‘No. It’s crazy that that’s all they had.”

Trump adviser Jason Miller responded to the report by tweeting “Serious question – where does President Trump go for his apology? He, his family, his friends, his company, have all been smeared and maligned for months!!!”
