The New York Attorney General’s office said Tuesday that it is pursuing a criminal investigation into the Trump Organization, in addition to the ongoing civil probe.
“We have informed the Trump Organization that our investigation into the organization is no longer purely civil in nature. We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan DA. We have no additional comment at this time,” said Fabien Levy, a spokesperson for the office said in a statement.
This is significant. You don’t announce an investigation is now criminal, unless you have some pretty good evidence.
The NYAG’s investigation into the Trump Foundation saw it closed down, Trump paying $2 million and Trump found unfit to be a charity director, without supervision, again. So they have a record of winning. This is going to be very interesting.
