New report suggests that Manhattan DA won’t indict Trump

Critics of former President Donald Trump have long accused him of having committed criminal wrongdoing in his business empire.

However, a bombshell new report suggests that those who hope to see the former president get indicted are in for a disappointment. 

“Waning activity” in the DA’s office

In a piece published on Friday, National Review contributor Caroline Downey noted that Trump has been “under investigation for falsely inflating the value of his assets in annual financial statements.”

Yet she also pointed to a recent New York Times story which said there are signs of “waning activity from prosecutors.”

According to Downey, this includes the fact that “[a]t least three crucial witnesses have not been in contact with the district attorney’s office in months, and have not been asked to testify.”

What’s more, she went on to cite the Times story as saying that “a key prosecutor once pivotal to the probe has taken a step back from it.” This is on top of the fact that Mark F. Pomerantz and Carey R. Dunne both moved to submit their resignations earlier this year.

According to the Times, Pomerantz decided to leave in February “after the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, abruptly stopped pursuing an indictment of Mr. Trump.”

Pomerantz said in a resignation letter obtained by the Times he remained “convinced that a failure to prosecute will pose much greater risks in terms of public confidence in the fair administration of justice.”

Yet despite suggestions that efforts are winding down, Bragg was quoted as assuring the Times that his investigation of Trump will continue.

“It’s a work in progress,” the Manhattan district attorney insisted, stressing, “We’ve got seasoned prosecutors working every day. It’s not going to be on a timeline.”

As she drew to a close, Downey pointed out that the lack of an indictment by Bragg wouldn’t necessarily mean the end of Trump’s legal troubles.

A lawyer working for New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office announced during a court hearing this past Monday that her office may file a civil suit against the former president.
