The resignation letter of a federal prosecutor, Mark Pomerantz, who worked for the Southern District of New York, illustrates that the investigation into Donald Trump will now come to a halt for an unspecified period of time.
While handing in his resignation last month, Pomerantz also criticized District Attorney Alvin Bragg for giving up on chasing an indictment against the former president.
Prosecutor Carey Dunne worked with Pomerantz in the case against Trump on orders from former District Attorney Cyrus Vance. Last month, the two prosecutors resigned after Bragg decided to halt the investigation.
In response to the case, Trump labeled the investigation a political vendetta against him and adamantly maintains his innocence.
According to a report by the New York Times, under former District Attorney Vance, Dunne and Pomerantz were going to indict Trump on the charges of fabricating financial records. However, last year, when Bragg became the new district attorney, he suspended the investigation due to a lack of evidence supporting the charges.
A report by Fox News highlighted that prosecutors leading the investigation into Trump discovered that his financial statements alone actually exonerate him. Fox News also quoted an anonymous source who affirmed that Bragg made the right decision by stopping the investigation.
An official from District Attorney Bragg’s office also told Fox News that they are still looking into Trump’s financial records.
