US NEWS: Donald Trump’s business empire is targeted

New York prosecutors have told attorneys for former US President Donald Trump that they must respond Monday to any final arguments as to why criminal cases should not be included in his family’s business, The Washington Post reported on Sunday.

The newspaper, citing two people familiar with the matter, said the deadline was another strong indication that Manhattan regional attorney Cyrus Vance and New York attorney general Letitia James were considering criminal cases against the company as an organization.

On Friday, The New York Times reported that Vance could announce charges against the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, about next week.

Vance’s office said it was investigating “criminal conduct that is likely to be widespread and time consuming” for the Trump Organization, including tax and insurance fraud and fraudulent business records.

Meanwhile, Trump’s attorney general Bill Barr told him a month after the 2020 election that allegations of voter fraud were baseless, but he denied it, reports Atlantic magazine. “We saw right away that it was just a bull,” Barr told Jonathan Karl, an ABC News reporter who was going to publish a book about Trump’s last days in office.
