Wednesday, 19. May 2021 04:50

The office of New York State Attorney General Letitia James announced that it is now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a "criminal capacity" along with the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.

"We have informed the Trump Organization that our investigation into the organization is no longer purely civil in nature," Attorney General James' spokesman Fabien Levy informed the media.

The investigation, which was launched in 2019, has been looking into whether the Trump Organization inflated the value of its real estate assets on financial statements. Former President Donald Trump previously dismissed the probe led by the Democratic attorney general as a political "witch hunt."
