“No Doubt” Trump Committed Crimes

One of the two senior investigators who resigned from the Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation into former President Donald Trump’s financial documents last month said in his resignation letter that there was “no doubt” that Trump had committed a crime.

Mark Pomerantz (an ex-federal prosecutor) wrote the letter. He was retired and joined the investigation. was obtained by The New York Times this week. Pomerantz as well as attorney Carey Dunne abruptly quit their positions on February’s inquiry; sources indicated that Alvin Bragg, Manhattan District Court Attorney, was also present at the time. appeared “disinterested” in pursuing the investigation furtherAfter former DA Cyrus Vance had retired, he was elected to the position.

Bragg’s office has maintained that the investigation into whether the former president lied about his wealth in financial documents is ongoing. But Pomerantz’s letter seems to indicate that the office is unlikely to charge Trump with any criminal conduct, in spite of evidence showing that such a case would likely succeed.

“[Trump’s] financial statements were false, and he has a long history of fabricating information relating to his personal finances and lying about his assets to banks, the national media, counterparties, and many others, including the American people,” Pomerantz wrote in his letter.

“The team that has been investigating Mr. Trump harbors no doubt about whether he committed crimes — he did,” Pomerantz added.

The former prosecutor asserted that Bragg’s decision to slow down the investigation was “misguided and completely contrary to the public interest.” Pomerantz also stated in his letter that he and others in the District Attorney’s office have garnered sufficient evidence “to establish Mr. Trump’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Pomerantz continued:

No case is perfect. Regardless of the risks involved in bringing the case, I am convinced that failure to prosecute will pose greater risks to public confidence in fair administration of justice.

“I fear that your decision means that Mr. Trump will not be held fully accountable for his crimes,” Pomerantz concluded. “I have worked too hard as a lawyer, and for too long, now to become a passive participant in what I believe to be a grave failure of justice.”

A spokesperson for Bragg refuted the letter’s contents, telling The Hill that the investigation is ongoing and that a “team of experienced prosecutors is working every day to follow the facts and the law” regarding the case.

But there are signs that the investigation is winding down and won’t conclude with any charges against Trump, his family members, or those who handled his finances. The grand jury that oversees the inquiry This Friday, the expiration date of this Friday is setSince the beginning of the year, no witnesses have appeared before this jury.

Trump may still be required to answer for his criminal acts, as a separate inquiry at state level, led by Letitia James, New York Attorney General, continues. Upon the announcement last month that Pomerantz and Dunne had resigned from the Manhattan District Attorney’s inquiry, a spokesperson for James’s office said that her “investigation is ongoing, and there is a robust team working on it.”
