The Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation into possible financial crimes of the Trump family has been expanded to include Eric Trump.
The prosecutor’s interest in the 7,000-acre property called Seven Springs is a significant addition to an investigation that began more than a year ago. It also comes closer to President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, the Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization, who was directly involved in discussions about the property currently under investigation, according to court records.
The prosecution sent grand jury summons to city officials within the past two months for documents and notices officials had with the Trump Organization about development plans they were considering for the rambling family fortune.
Washington, DC law enforcement agencies want to speak to Donald Trump Jr. about the potentially illegal use of Trump opening funds in 2017. The network around the Trump family is getting tighter. Ivanka Trump is at the center of investigations into potential fraud and tax violations.
The Manhattan DA is the Trump’s most serious publicly known criminal investigation. DA Cyrus Vance investigates the Trump family for potential bank and credit fraud. Any single member of the Trump family who has worked in the Trump organization for an extended period of time can face potential criminal liability.
In a few days, Trump will no longer be able to hide behind the presidency, and when he leaves the White House the clock is ticking to hold the Trumps accountable for possible crimes.
