New York AG says probe into Trump Organization ‘is no longer purely civil’

The political witch hunt that followed Donald Trump throughout his presidency is showing no signs of going away now that he’s out of office.

With Trump hinting at another run at the presidency, Democratic prosecutors in his hometown of New York are tightening the screws. According to the Associated Press, New York state Attorney General Letitia James has announced that her long-standing civil investigation of Trump’s business interests is now a criminal probe.

No reason given for escalation

The news, while dramatic, came with no detail about what prompted the escalation. James gave a terse statement, saying her office “informed the Trump Organization that our investigation into the company is no longer purely civil in nature.”

“We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan DA,” her spokesperson said, according to the AP.

James and Manhattan’s District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, Jr., both Democrats, have been engaged in a years-long fishing expedition scrutinizing Trump’s finances.

The Vance probe originated in 2018 with a now-arcane controversy over Stormy Daniels and Trump’s “hush money” payments to the porn actor, and James started her own investigation in early 2019.

That they are now converging is an unusual development, with The Washington Post calling collaboration between the offices “rare.” The coordination certainly seems far from coincidental.

“The greatest witch hunt in history”

In a statement, Trump ripped the new criminal probe as a “continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of the United States,” after he spent about half of his presidency embattled by the bogus claim that he was secretly an agent of Russia.

“After prosecutorial efforts the likes of which nobody has ever seen before, they failed to stop me in Washington, so they turned it over to New York to do their dirty work,” the former president said.

Democrats, Trump claimed, are resorting to politically repressive tactics seen in “third world” countries to stop him from running for the White House again. He also slammed James, who has aligned herself closely with “the Resistance,” as a partisan with an ax to grind, noting she has been threatening to pursue him since her political campaign three years ago.

“If you can run for a prosecutor’s office pledging to take out your enemies, and be elected to that job by partisan voters who wish to enact political retribution, then we are no longer a free constitutional democracy,” the former president opined.

For years, liberal partisans chanted that the “walls were closing in” on Trump, only to see those hopes dashed by reality. Could they finally get their wish?

  4. In response to the criminal investigation on Trump, I hate to say this but Latisha, u can not say this is a criminal investigation when there us NO Crime! How stupid can u be!! The court will not go for it and until u can prove anything without a shadow of a doubt u are just wasting ur time, heresy is not proof!! GO MAGA!!!

  5. Maybe after the President Trump is cleared maybe the AG in NY and a few others should face federal charges for a few federal problems–One especially, making charges and comments without proven fact–Remember Mr. Trump is a citizen–and the State of NY could be charged with a lot of things that could cost many dollars and his position.

  6. They are Satan’s workers….this proof of that. I would put NOTHING past the Dem Party. We are finding all kinds of possible criminal facts about the left…but nothing is ever done about it….including the Covid Farce during an election year with corrupt Fauci developing the virus and he and gates benefitting from the sale of the vaccines…..a whole other story…..and then we have the criminal intent to unseat a duly elected President in 2020…with nobody held accountable for theft of our votes (yet). I pray that justice for the demented Dems will soon be coming. But it will not be soon enough for these non-patriots. (There are numerous other crimes they have done which are not accounted for yet…..all kinds of treason, etc. )

  7. The NY AG is a biased,partisan hack.Before she became NY AG,she said she was going to do a criminal investigation into the Trump organization.She started this investigation to look for a crime.When she finds no crime,will she create one out of thin air?

  8. well if it’s a criminal investion on stormy Daniel hush money? That is not illegal to pay someone to keep quiet on something. for one. and the other point is it was not President Trump who offered and made the payment to stormy daniels. It was his then attonery who violated client attorney privelge long standing rule and admitting that it he who offered her the payment and not Trump and it was coehn who is the guilty person in that payment to stormy daniels as a hush money and not Trump. So they are now inventing laws and not even grandfathering them. Plus stormy daniels broke the signed written agreement and talked about it to whole world so she is guilty of break a contract which she signed on her own. That alone is guilty of crime in itself.
    So did nothing wrong in that and no matter what coehn is self admitted guilty and stormy Daniels is also guilty in this and not trump?????
