Trump Organization Investigation Turns Into Criminal One, New York DA Announces

New York prosecutors have revealed that their investigation into the Trump Organization has changed.

What started out as a purely civil investigation over the organization’s inner workings has turned into a criminal one.

Fabien Levy, the press secretary to New York Attorney General Letitia James, told CNN that they “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,” he added. “We have no additional comment.”

The announcement comes after Michael Cohen, who was former President Donald Trump‘s personal attorney, had been interviewed by the district attorney.

The criminal inquiry has focused on whether the Trump Organization had engaged in tax and insurance fraud, among other crimes.

Just a few months ago, the DA obtained Trump‘s official tax records for the investigation.
