NYAG initiates criminal investigation into Trump org

KEYTNew York Attorney General Letitia James is joining the Manhattan district attorney’s office in a criminal investigation of the Trump Organization, James’ office said Tuesday.

The attorney general office’s investigation into the Trump Organization, which has been underway since 2019, will also continue as a civil probe, but the office recently informed Trump Organization officials of the criminal component.

“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,” James’ spokesman Fabien Levy told CNN. “We have no additional comment.”

Just like her investigation into the NRA, this is a purely political exercise.

Hopefully, the Trump organization has not been so foolish as to leave itself vulnerable.

Even if it has, it does not change the obvious political motives behind the investigation. I'm frankly sick and tired of Trump being investigated for everything by people who are determined to investigate the person until they can find the crime. That's not how it is supposed to work.
