Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. does not currently plan to charge former President Donald Trump or the Trump Organization as part of Vance’s office probe into “hush money” and real estate manipulations, Politico reports one of Trump’s attorneys as saying.
“In other words, President Trump was right once again,” said nationally-syndicated radio host Todd Starnes. “And the fake news is — well — still fake news.”
Ronald Fischetti told Politico that he asked Vance’s office last week about details of the charges it may file.
But Fischetti said that Vance’s team did say they were looking at filing charges against the Trump Organization and some of its employees over alleged failure to pay taxes on corporate benefits and perks, according to Politico.
According to previous reports, those perks look to involve only a few executives and include cars and apartments.
“We asked, ‘Is there anything else?'” Fischetti said. “They said, ‘No.'”
“It’s crazy that that’s all they had,” Fischetti said.
Politico asked Fischetti if the meeting with Vance’s lawyers delved into allegations made by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and the adult film star who claims to have received “hush money” on Trump’s behalf, Stormy Daniels. Fischetti said, “Nothing. Not a word on that.”
Trump’s lawyer added that Vance’s team added that they have no plans to bring any charges against the former president himself when the first indictment is made public.
“They just said, ‘When this indictment comes down, he won’t be charged. Our investigation is ongoing,'” Fischetti said.
