Trump called the criminal investigation against his company in New York a witch hunt

The former US president noted that the investigation in search of evidence is trying to cover the widest possible list of organizations with which the Trump Organization came into only fleeting contact many years ago.

Former US President Donald Trump believes that the inclusion of criminal aspects in the investigation of the Trump Organization by the New York authorities continues the “greatest witch hunt” initiated by supporters of the Democratic Party against him and his supporters. This is stated in the statement of the former head of the White House, published on Wednesday on his website.

On Tuesday, the Attorney General of the state of New York, Letitia James, announced the relevant decision of the department under her control. “There is nothing more corrupt than an investigation that desperately needs a crime,” Trump responded, ” but rest assured, that’s exactly what is happening in this case.”

The former president also pointed out that James announced plans to investigate him even before she became a prosecutor and gained access to the case file. He also noted that the investigation in search of evidence is trying to cover the widest possible list of organizations with which the Trump Organization came into only fleeting contact many years ago. “These investigations actually represent the continuation of the greatest political witch hunt in US history,” he added. The New York State Attorney General opened an investigation into the Trump Organization last March. The company is suspected of artificially inflating the value of its assets to obtain loans. The trial was launched after the former lawyer of the former US President, Michael Cohen, made allegations that the Trump Organization resorted to this practice. He worked for the company for about 10 years. New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance has conducted a similar investigation since 2019.
