The New York Attorney General’s office is now conducting a criminal probe into the Trump Organization, a spokesperson told CNN on Tuesday.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo reported Tuesday evening that New York Attorney General Letitia James will join the Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation into the Trump Organization.
The attorney general office’s investigation into the Trump Organization, which has been underway since 2019, will also continue as an ongoing civil probe, but the office recently informed Trump Organization officials of the criminal component, reports CNN.
“We have informed the Trump Organization that our investigation into the Organization is no longer purely civil in nature,” spokesperson Fabien Levy told the outlet.
“We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan DA.”
