Grand Jury Seated for Trump Investigation

by Jan Frazier

New York (Washington Insider Magazine) On Tuesday a special grand jury convened “to consider evidence in a criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump’s business dealings.”

In order to get Trump’s tax records and his business dealings, the Manhattan district attorney’s office has had a two-year investigation and is continuing to move forward with seeking charges.

Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, Jr., is “conducting a wide-ranging investigation into a variety of matters such as hush-money payments paid to women on Trump’s behalf, property valuations, and employee compensation.”

A grand jury that is considered “investigative” is being used by the Democratic prosecutor. During the entire investigation, the prosecutor has issued subpoenas and has also obtained documents. This panel has continued to work even though other grand juries, as well as court investigations, were shut down because of Covid-19.

“The investigation includes scrutiny of Trump’s relationship with his lenders, a land donation he made to qualify for an income tax deduction, and tax write-offs his company claimed on millions of dollars in consulting fees it paid.”

The Washington Post has said that the grand jury will be assigned to meeting “three days a week for six months.” Trump claims that this is a “witch hunt.”

Trump said that all of this is merely political and an embarrassment to the “75 million voters who supported me in the Presidential Election.”

Attorney General, Letitia James, commented last week that she has two lawyers working with Vance’s office concerning Trump’s involvement in criminal activities. James, who is a Democrat, also continues her civil investigation into Trump’s activities.

Recently, Vance “hired former mafia prosecutor, Mark Pomerantz, to help run the investigation and has been interviewing witnesses, including Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.”

Last week, Trump stated that he’s “being unfairly attacked and abused by a corrupt political system.” All of the investigations are simply a plot that the Democrats have organized to “silence his voters and block him from running for president again.”
