Trump blasts reported grand jury, part of 'greatest Witch Hunt'

Trump blasts reported grand jury, part of 'greatest Witch Hunt'”

The grand jury, which was formed recently and will sit three days per week for a period of six months, would decide whether to indict Trump, according to a report by The Washington Post. He said this likely explains why the DA has reportedly set a six-month session for the impaneling, which is longer than regular grand jury assignments in NY.

The new grand jury is the latest sign that criminal investigations against the former Republican president and his company, the Trump Organization, are gaining momentum.

The district attorney obtained the sought-after files earlier this year, and the office's probe continued to heat up, with the hiring of a forensic accountant and outside counsel with experience prosecuting the mob to help out on the investigation.

New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. convened a large arbitral tribunal to evaluate the evidence he collected during his trial.

Her spokesperson said the inquiry into Mr Trump's property company was "no longer purely civil".

The former president went on to say, "This is purely political, and an affront to the nearly 75 million voters who supported me in the Presidential Election, and it's being driven by highly partisan Democrat prosecutors".

Trump claims that the investigation is a "witch hunt".

Trump also suggested New York officials should have higher priorities, writing, "New York City and State are suffering the highest crime rates in their history, and instead of going after murderers, drug dealers, human traffickers, and others, they come after Donald Trump". She doesn't say why her office expanded the investigation into criminal investigations.

In recent months, 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. An election next month is all but certain to determine who that will be. 8-year tax return and related documents for the former president, Trump organization and other Trump entities.

Trump issued a statement last week complaining that he's being "unfairly attacked and abused by a corrupt political system".

In February, the US Supreme Court upheld Vence's investigation by clarifying how prosecutors would execute and obtain subpoenas at Trump's accounting firm.

According to several media, Vance's team has been looking closely at the Trump Organisation's long-serving chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, one of the family's most loyal servants.

Allen Weisserberg was summoned in a James civil investigation and witnessed twice previous year.
