Trump grand jury: New York prosecutor­s have convened a special grand jury that could decide whether to indict former President Donald Trump and other executives at his company, the Trump Organizati­on, on criminal charges, the Associated Press and The Washington Post reported this week. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has led a two-year investigat­ion focused partly on whether the Trump Organizati­on inflated property values to get loans and undervalue­d them to lower its taxes. Trump called the seating of the grand jury “a continuati­on of the greatest Witch Hunt in American history.” New York Attorney General Letitia James and Vance also are pursuing criminal investigat­ions targeting the Trump Organizati­on’s chief financial officer, Allen Weisselber­g, reportedly hoping he will give evidence against Trump. Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said Weisselber­g could be a dangerous witness against Trump and his company. “Every single penny in and every penny out went through Allen Weisselber­g’s desk,” Cohen said.
