In the US, the New York Attorney General’s Office announced that the investigation into former president Donald Trump’s family business, which started as a civil investigation, has turned into a criminal investigation.
Fabien Levy, the spokesperson of the Attorney General’s Office, said in a statement, “We have reported that our investigation into The Trump Organization is no longer entirely civil. We are now actively pursuing the company in criminal capacity, together with the Manhattan District Attorney.”
TRUMP REFUSES CLAIMS
However, The Trump Organization did not comment on the issue. Trump said the investigation led by Democrat James was politically motivated.
Attorney General Letitia James is investigating whether Trump’s company has misrepresented property values to secure loans and gain tax benefits. Separately, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance has been investigating Trump’s pre-presidential business relationships for more than two years.
In the statement made by the prosecutor’s office, it was stated that Trump and his team were investigated in criminal capacity and court applications were made in this direction.
The investigation has accelerated since Republican Trump lost his second term offer to President Joe Biden, a Democrat.
