A two-year-long tax inquiry of a golf facility owned by former President Donald Trump has been closed by a Democrat prosecutor in New York.
After examining claims that Trump Organization gave false property appraisals to reduce taxes, Westchester County District Attorney Miriam Rocah declared that no charges would be filed against the former president or his corporation.
The former president asked in a Truth Social message how he could restore his good name after dropping charges that implied he was a tax cheat. He called it “election meddling.”
The investigation began in 2021 and centered on Trump National Golf Club’s taxes in Briarcliff Manor, Westchester County.
Rocah’s office said the Westchester County DA’s office investigated properties owned by the Trump Organization, and they’ve “ finished their probe.” They said they performed the investigation with the same lack of bias and objectivity as every other inquiry.
Rocah stated that Americans must trust the rule of law.
Trump has won a judicial battle despite being charged in Manhattan for alleged payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and on 37 federal counts linked to his handling of secret documents.
On Tuesday, the former president was arraigned in Miami and entered a not-guilty plea to all accusations against him. These include 31 counts of violating the Espionage Act for the “willful retention” of national defense secrets and charges of obstruction and making false statements.
Aileen Cannon, a Trump appointee to the U.S. District Court, will preside over the subsequent trial, which Special Counsel Jack Smith has promised will be “speedy.”
In Georgia, Trump is being sued by E. Jean Carroll, a woman who claims Trump raped her, and by state prosecutors for allegedly interfering with the state’s election. The former president, favored to win the Republican nominee for president in 2024, has said that the investigations against him are politically motivated and has denied any wrongdoing.
