Manhattan DA convenes grand jury to assess potential charges against Trump Organization


Manhattan District Attorney Summons Second Grand Jury examine potential charges against the Trump Organization relating to the company’s financial practices, The Washington Post reported, citing people familiar with the subject.

One person who spoke to the Post said the grand jury must examine how the assets of the Trump Organization are being valued.

In addition, sources told the newspaper that on Thursday the jury is due to hear testimony about former President TrumpDonald Trump Legal organization files ethics complaint against Trump’s lawyer Eastman Overnight Defense & National Security – US still warns Putin to think invasion of Ukraine Krysten Sinema is less of a political conundrum than it is is not a strategic decision maker PLUSthe Surrogate’s Court cases in Manhattan.

Over the next six months, the grand jury will meet three times a week, the Post reported. It is not known what assets the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office will specifically investigate.

The newspaper noted that summoning the second grand jury may not result in no one facing charges. Based on the grand jury seats, it does not appear that any other companies or officials linked to Trump would be charged, the Post noted.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office declined to comment to The Hill on the Post’s report. Manhattan prosecutor-elect Alvin Bragg also declined to comment.

The Hill has contacted Trump’s personal attorneys, a spokesperson for Trump and the Trump Organization for comment.
