BREAKING: Prosecutors Leading Trump Investigation Abruptly Resign
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1868: U.S. House of Representatives vote 126 to 47 to impeach President Andrew Johnson
The top prosecutors leading the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s investigation into former President Donald Trump’s financial dealings have abruptly resigned.
Mark Pomerantz and Carey Dunne’s resignations came after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg signaled he had “doubts about moving forward” with the case.
Pomerantz confirmed that he had resigned but did not elaborate. Dunne declined to comment.
The Manhattan DA’s investigation into potential tax and bank-related fraud has stalled for over a month because of Bragg’s reluctance to move forward, according to multiple reports.
In that time, they have not questioned any witnesses in front of the grand jury, essentially halting their investigation into whether Trump inflated the value of his assets to obtain favorable loan terms from banks.
The precise reasons for Bragg’s reluctance are unknown.
When asked for a response to Pomerantz and Dunne’s resignations, Bragg said he was “grateful for their service.”
