The New York Attorney General’s office announced a “criminal” investigation into the Trump Organization on Tuesday evening.
Attorney General Leticia James was already conducting a civil probe of former President Trump’s company. Her team added the criminal investigation into the Trump organization on civil charges this evening.
James is said to be collaborating with the Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr’s office who is reportedly investigating whether the Trump Organization manipulated the value of its real estate holdings in order to lower its tax bill.
Trump has previously called both the investigations political witch hunts. Both investigations are being conducted by Democrat officials.
