Manhattan Attorney Cy Vance hired a prominent federal attorney who specializes in white collar crime and organized crime to help investigate Trump.
The New York Times reported:
When the Manhattan Attorney's Office stepped up the criminal investigation against Donald J. Trump, it sought outside of its ranks to hire a prominent former federal attorney who several knowledgeable people say is helping with the financial review of the former president's firm.
Former District Attorney Mark F. Pomerantz has extensive experience investigating and defending white-collar and organized crime cases, and strengthens the team under District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who investigates Mr. Trump and his family business, the Trump Organization.
The Manhattan prosecutor is investigating Trump and his children on a wide variety of fraud cases, including banking and tax fraud. Trump is being investigated for potentially misleading banks and tax authorities regarding the value of his real estate in order to obtain loans and tax breaks.
The Manhattan investigation seduced Trump and his adult children, all of whom are top officials in the Trump Organization. The Trumps are being investigated because they are literally an organized crime family.
For decades, the Trumps managed to evade law enforcement in New York, but presidency scrutiny included new information about Trump's financial dealings and possible crimes.
The Trumps are planning a political comeback, but the reality is they are more likely to be convicted of a crime than ever to be seen in the White House again.
