Former President Donald Trump blew up New York City and state attorneys after Trump was told by his attorney that he would not be charged in the two-year-old prosecutor’s investigation into his property.
“Radical left New York City and prosecutors who let killers, rapists, drug dealers and all other forms of crime soar to record levels,” wrote Trump.
And “who have just announced that hundreds of people involved in violent crimes will be released back onto the streets without retaliation are rude, angry, and completely biased in the way they use lawyers, agents, and some of the wonderful longtime Employees and people within the Trump organization, “he continued.
Trump organization lawyer Ron Fischetti said the president would not be charged for the time being – but added that it does not mean future charges are ruled out.
“I can’t say that he’s still completely out of the woods,” said Fischetti.
However, that hasn’t stopped Trump from waging an endless tirade for almost as long as the Trump Organization’s two-year investigation.
“After hundreds of subpoenas, over 3 million pages of documents, 4 years of searches, dozens and tens of interviews, and wasted millions of dollars in tax dollars, they are still ‘looking for a crime’ and will do anything to scare people into it bring up the stories or lies they want but totally couldn’t get, “wrote Trump in one long sentence.
“It’s a continuation of the greatest witch hunt of all time.”
Trump’s primary target with Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr., who has led the investigation since its inception.
His comments came when Fischetti and other Trump Organization lawyers met with Vance’s office.
Lawyers have said the Vance-appointed grand jury is about to vote on the number of charges to be brought.
Fischetti said Trump would not be charged – “at least not with what’s coming this week.” He added that the company itself could face charges.
However, prosecutors are trying to bring charges against Allen Weisselberg, the Trump organization’s chief financial officer.
Investigators so far have focused on benefits for top executives such as apartments, cars, and school fees.
Prosecutors are currently not planning to charge Trump with alleged “hush money” payments to porn star Stormy Daniel or real estate fraud, his lawyer said.
Fischetti alleges members of Vance’s team said he was weighing charges against the Trump organization and various employees for alleged non-payment of taxes on corporate benefits and other perks.
The perks included cars and homes and only affected a small number of executives, Politico reported.
“We asked: ‘Is there anything else?”, Fischetti told the sales point. “They said ‘no’.”
Fischetti said it was “crazy” that “that’s all they had”.
When asked whether the meeting mentioned allegations by Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen and ex-porn star Stormy Daniels regarding alleged “hush money” payments, Fischetti said “no”.
“Nothing. Not a word about it, ”he continued.
The attorney added that Vance’s team had informed him that they had no intention of indicting Trump themselves if the first indictment fell.
