Former Manhattan District Attorney Mark Pomerantz said in his resignation letter that Trump was guilty of several crimes.
The New York Times received the letter of resignation and reported:
One of the top Manhattan prosecutors investigating Donald J. Trump believed the former president was “guilty of several crimes” and that failure to hold him accountable was “a serious flaw in the judiciary,” a copy of the report said. his farewell letter.
Mr. Pomerantz and Mr. Dunne planned to charge Mr. Trump for falsifying business records, specifically his accounts – a crime in the state of New York.
Mr. Bragg’s predecessor, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., had in his last days in office decided to work toward an indictment, leaving Mr. Trump only a few weeks away from a possible indictment.
Bragg’s decision not to sue Trump can haunt the nation if the twice-failed, failed former president ever returns to power.
The documents and evidence are in the position of the prosecutor. Publicly reported information makes it clear that Trump inflated his fortune to obtain credit and deflated the same fortune to avoid paying taxes.
Trump has been involved in criminal behavior, and if the prosecutor is too scared to lose to prosecute him, then Manhattan needs a better prosecutor.
An indictment against Trump would have been a circus. It would have competed with the OJ Simpson trial as the trial of the century.
The decision not to prosecute is both confusing and angry.
