On Thursday (June 15), a legal weight was lifted from former President Donald Trump’s shoulders.
Westchester County District Attorney Miriam Rocah, a Democrat, confirmed that her two-year investigation into the valuation of a Trump Organization golf club ended without criminal charges.
Rocah launched the investigation to determine whether the Trump Organization submitted misleading assessments to ease the tax burden on Trump’s Westchester National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, about 25 miles north of downtown Manhattan.
Rocah shared that the reason she had revealed the probe wasn’t ending in criminal charges because “It’s really important, more important than ever in our country, to make sure people understand that we have independent prosecutors,” adding that the “justice system that operates independent of politics.”
Rocah made the comments on CBS News Thursday after a news conference regarding other events in her office.
Insiders had revealed a day earlier that the case was closed earlier this month.
Rocah expressed being proud that she was an impartial prosecutor, saying, “I look at every subject of any investigation, every organization that’s a subject of an investigation, the same way.”
Trump praised the district attorney’s move on Truth Social, describing it as the “honorable thing to do” because he “did nothing wrong.”
However, the former President asked when he would be getting his reputation back.
Trump continued, “WHEN WILL THE OTHER FAKE CASES AGAINST ME BE DROPPED? ELECTION INTERFERENCE!!!”
Trump’s legal troubles in New York are not over. Democratic state Attorney General Letitia James filed a civil fraud lawsuit against Trump, his three children, and the Trump Organization for overvaluing the former President’s estate by billions of dollars.
Trump also faces 34 criminal charges brought by Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for allegedly paying adult film star Stormy Daniels hush money. Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges and has denied any wrongdoing.
