Two Senior Prosecutors Probing Trump Organization Resign| Latest News!

In a statement released Wednesday, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office revealed that two top prosecutors involved in a criminal investigation of former President Donald Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, have left the agency.

Both Carey Dunne and Mark Pomerantz, a former mafia prosecutor who was recruited from his private practice to assist with the investigation and who championed the legal fight to obtain the former president’s tax returns and tax-related documents all the way to the Supreme Court twice and won, have resigned from their positions.

A representative for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Danielle Filson, said in a statement that “we are appreciative for their service” and that “the inquiry is ongoing.” Filson said she was unable to provide any further comment.

Requests for comment from Dunne and Pomerantz did not receive a response right away.

The New York Times was the first to break the news of the resignations.

When Cyrus Vance decided not to run for re-election in January, the Manhattan district attorney’s office changed hands, and Bragg was appointed to take over for him.

According to the New York Times, which cited two individuals, the resignations came after Bragg began to back away from the inquiry and had temporarily halted grand jury testimony.

President Donald Trump has not been charged with any wrongdoing in connection with the probe, which he has described as a politically driven “witch hunt.”
Earlier this year, the Trump Organization and its former chief financial officer were accused in connection with what prosecutors described as a massive,

15-year plot to compensate top executives at Trump’s company “off the books” and aid them in their efforts to avoid paying taxes. Both have entered a not-guilty plea.

In order to avoid paying taxes, prosecutors claim that the corporation participated in an “orchestrated” operation to compensate executives “off the books.”

“Contrary to today’s allegation by the company’s former CEO [Trump], this is not standard practice in the business community,’ nor was it the conduct of a rogue or isolated employee,” Dunne stated in court at the time.

According to Dunne, “rather, it was engineered by the most senior executives, who were financially enriching themselves and the corporation by receiving hidden pay rises at the expense of state and federal taxpayers.”

In addition to his competence in white-collar and difficult financial matters, Pomerantz was engaged by Vance to work on the case because of his knowledge of white-collar and complex financial issues.

During an interview with CNN prior to taking office, Bragg hailed Dunne and Pomerantz as “two very good lawyers,” and he expressed his hope that they would continue to work on the case.

“I believe it would be a disservice to Manhattan if they were to leave,” Bragg stated.
