Prosecutor Says Trump ‘Guilty of Numerous Felonies’
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1977: 583 die in aviation’s worst ever disaster when two Boeing 747s collide at Tenerife airport in Spain.
Mark Pomerantz, one of the top prosecutors leading the Manhattan district attorney’s investigation into former President Donald Trump and his business dealings, said in his resignation letter he believed Trump was “guilty of numerous felonies.”
“His 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 a resignation letter to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D).
“The team that has been investigating Mr. Trump harbors no doubt about whether he committed crimes — he did.”
A Bragg spokesperson said that the investigation is still ongoing.
Trump spokesperson Liz Harrington said: “President Trump built a great business, and did nothing wrong. New York should get back to solving their skyrocketing crime problem, rather than spending so much time and energy on partisan witch hunts.”
“Never before have we seen this level of corruption in our legal system,” the Trump Organization said in a statement, adding that Pomerantz is a “never-Trumper.”
