Donald Trump has just secured a substantial legal victory.
A New York prosecutor has dropped a two-year tax investigation into a golf course owned by former President Donald Trump.
Westchester County District Attorney Miriam Rocah announced that no charges would be filed against the former president or the Trump Organization following an investigation into allegations that Trump’s business had provided dishonest property evaluations to save on taxes.
“AFTER GOING THROUGH A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION FOR TWO YEARS BY THE DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NEW YORK, IT WAS JUST ANNOUNCED THAT THE CASE HAS BEEN DROPPED, AND NO CHARGES WILL BE FILED,” the former president said in a statement on Truth Social. “THIS WAS THE HONORABLE THING TO DO IN THAT I DID NOTHING WRONG, BUT WHERE AND WHEN DO I GET MY REPUTATION BACK? WHEN WILL THE OTHER FAKE CASES AGAINST ME BE DROPPED? ELECTION INTERFERENCE!!!”
The probe focused on taxes related to the Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, located in Westchester County.
“The Westchester County District Attorney’s Office conducted an investigation regarding certain properties owned by Donald J. Trump and/or the Trump Organization located in Westchester County, New York,” Rocah’s office said in a statement.”Our investigation is now closed. We approached this investigation as we do all of our investigations, objectively, and independent of politics, party affiliation and personal or political beliefs.”
“It’s really important, more important than ever in our country, to make sure that people understand that we have independent prosecutors, we have a justice system that operates independent of politics,” she said to CBS News.
The legal victory for Trump comes as he faces 37 federal charges related to his handling of classified documents and charges in Manhattan over alleged payments to Stormy Daniels.
