New York Investigation of Trump’s Business Falling Apart as Two Prosecutors Resign From Manhattan DA Office
“The New York Times, citing sources, reported that the grand jury investigation had stalled, with no sessions in the last month, and that Dunne and Pomerantz quit after Bragg raised doubts about pursuing a case against Trump himself.”
The left’s never-ending investigations and harassment of Trump took a major blow this week. Two of the prosecutors involved in the Manhattan DA’s probe of Trump’s business resigned due to doubts.
The ‘resist’ crowd is going to lose its hive mind over this.
From the Associated Press, via Politico:
Prosecutors in charge of Trump criminal probe have resigned
The two prosecutors in charge of the Manhattan district attorney’s criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump and his business dealings suddenly resigned Wednesday, throwing the future of the probe into question just as pressure was building on Trump on several legal fronts.
A spokesperson for District Attorney Alvin Bragg confirmed the resignations of Carey Dunne and Mark Pomerantz, top deputies who had been tasked with running the investigation on a day-to-day basis. Both started on the Trump probe under former District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., and Bragg asked them to stay when he took office in January.
Dunne, the office’s former general counsel, argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in a successful, multiyear fight for Trump’s tax records. Pomerantz, a former mafia prosecutor, was brought out of private practice by Vance last year to add his expertise in white collar investigations and had been involved in questioning witnesses before the grand jury.
“We are grateful for their service,” Bragg spokesperson Danielle Filson said. She declined to comment further, saying the investigation is ongoing.
The New York Times, citing sources, reported that the grand jury investigation had stalled, with no sessions in the last month, and that Dunne and Pomerantz quit after Bragg raised doubts about pursuing a case against Trump himself. No former president has ever been charged with a crime.
Kevin Breuninger of CNBC has more:
The resignations raised questions about the state of the DA’s probe, with some experts suggesting the proceedings have been put on ice. The Times, citing people familiar with the matter, reported that Alvin Bragg, the new Manhattan district attorney, has indicated he has doubts about continuing to build a case against Trump.
New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office is conducting a related criminal investigation into the Trump Organization, as well as a civil probe. Both offices are reportedly eyeing claims by Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen that the Trump Organization fraudulently misstated its real estate valuations to get better tax and loan deals.
A person from the attorney general’s office told CNBC that investigation “is still ongoing and there is a robust team in place working on it.”
Lots of people are going to be very disappointed by this news.

The amount of cope this going to produce is going to be epic. If you haven't been paying attention, this was THE hope of the left to take Trump down. Now all that remains are some long-shot pipedreams about the January 6th committee. https://t.co/AHO9wSzIvc

This was never about anything more than politics. Democrats are terrified of another Trump run and they’re trying to bury him in investigations and bad press, much like they did while he was president.DONATE
