Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, a Democrat, has announced he will not seek criminal charges against Donald Trump or his organization over alleged “hush money” payments and other non-criminal offenses.
Ronald Fischetti, a personal attorney for the Former President, did say Mr. Trump was not in the clear. Cy Vance and other Democrat prosecutors informed Trump’s legal team that criminal charges may be filed for failure to pay taxes on certain corporate benefits handed down to employees in the Trump Organization. Executives working for Trump were often rewarded with cars and apartments in New York City, and the Democrat prosecutors are targeting the Former President for such frivolities.
Fishetti spoke to Cy Vance’s team, asking for assurance that these were the only charges the Distict Attorney’s office was pursuing. And Cy Vance confirmed.
“It’s crazy that that’s all they had,” Fischetti said.
Trump’s attorney also confirmed that no charges will be brought to the Former President relating to allegations made by porn star Stormy Daniels about alleged hush money payments. The story was leaked by ex-Trump attorney Michael Cohen and the story was rebuked.
Fishetti assured that no criminal charges will be made against Former President Trump as the first round of subpoenas are handed out. After a thorough investigation into the Trump Organization, Cy Vance and his Democrat cohorts had little to go on.
Any criminal charges would be the first in Vance’s probe into Trump and his business dealings.
Some legal experts claim that the investigation against Trump could lead to bankruptcy and financial ruin, but the newest development announced by Vance and his team show otherwise.
Vance’s office has said it was investigating “possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct” at the Trump Organization, including tax and insurance fraud and falsification of business records.
It is possible that no charges will be brought.
It’s unlikely that Vance and James’ probes will complicate Trump triumphant return to politics. While who has lost some of his ability to communicate publicly after being permanently banned from Twitter and suspended for two years by Facebook.
Court filings records subpoenaed in Vance’s investigation sow that Trump’s chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg and his son Barry have received corporate perks and gifts worth tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars over their decades working with the Donald Trump — a common practice in most organizations.
If they failed to account properly for that money on tax returns and other financial filings, they could be in legal jeopardy, legal experts have said.
New York State Attorney General Letitia James’ has similarly launched a partisan attack against Trump, investigating whether his organization was involved financial fraud — an effort fueled solely by Democrat political maneuvering.
