Trump’s investigation: New York prosecutor may convene a grand jury and signal accusations

Washington — Prosecutor Former President Donald Trump, criminal investigation into his close trajectory and his business A grand jury that could decide to prosecute was convened, according to a report on Tuesday.

The Washington Post first reported The Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance recently convened a grand jury, who will sit three days a week for six months. According to the post, the grand jury will hear some issues during that period, not just Trump.

The investigation is investigating potential tax and banking fraud. Prosecutors are particularly interested in whether Trump has overvalued his property and obscured his debt in order to obtain valuable loans and other financial negotiations.

The grand jury convocation shows that Vance believes he is suing Trump or someone else in his orbit.

Mr. Trump, who lacks the power to exempt him from prosecution as president and pardon allies, conducted an investigation as a political motivation.

“Nothing is more corrupt than a survey desperately looking for crime,” Trump said earlier. “But definitely that’s exactly what’s happening here.”
