    Trump Secures Blockbuster Victory – Criminal Investigation Has Been Dropped

    Published on

    A New York district attorney has given former president Donald Trump some legal positive news for a change. According to Business Insider, the Westchester County district attorney’s office concluded its investigation into The Trump Organization and the former president without pursuing legal action earlier this month.

    According to a source with knowledge of the probe, “District Attorney Mimi Rocah closed the investigation earlier in June,” the publication reported.

    Elliott Jacobson, a special prosecutor appointed by Rocah, reportedly resigned in late 2022, according to an unnamed source who is not authorized to speak publicly. According to the source, Jacobson concluded that the information gathered during the investigation did not support any criminal allegations, did not pertain to any activity for which the statute of limitations had expired, and did not overlap with any other active law enforcement investigations.

    A significant portion of the documents fell under the purview of the New York attorney general’s office. According to Insider, the attorney general’s office can file civil lawsuits, while the district attorney’s office can only prosecute criminal charges.

    Also, the source stated:

    In September, New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a landmark civil lawsuit against the Trump Organization, which is scheduled to go to trial in October of this year.

    Two years ago, the district attorney’s office in Westchester, a county north of New York City, initiated the investigation. It investigated whether the family business of the former president unlawfully misled authorities regarding the value of Trump National Golf Club Westchester in order to pay reduced property taxes. Court records reviewed by Insider reveal that the village of Ossining had been embroiled in civil litigation with the club over the property’s actual value and appropriate tax bill for years prior to the criminal investigation.

    The New York Times reports that in 2021, the office subpoenaed the golf course’s financial documents. However, the investigation’s details have become sparse over time. According to a source familiar with the matter, the scope of the investigation was ultimately expanded to include the former president’s personal conduct when determining the value of the golf club.

    The Manhattan district attorney’s office has been investigating the finances of the Trump Organization for quite some time, and Rocah’s office discovered other investigations against the company. The district attorney’s office had been investigating the organization’s finances for a long time, resorting to legal actions that twice reached the Supreme Court in order to acquire tax information.

    “Manhattan prosecutors brought criminal charges against the company and then-CFO Allen Weisselberg in the summer of 2021, alleging they falsified tax payroll tax records, and won at trial last fall,” Insider noted.

    In May, a Manhattan grand jury indicted Trump on 34 counts of manipulating financial documents pertinent to adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Prior to the 2016 presidential election, Trump allegedly paid Daniels to keep silent about their affair in 2006.

    Trump pleaded not guilty to all charges, and prominent individuals are criticizing the case for being politically motivated and devoid of substance.
