The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office subpoenaed the Trump Organization on Thursday for documents related to the money used in a hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels, an adult-film star who claimed to have had an affair with Donald Trump. According to The New York Times, the probe will look into whether senior executives “filed false business records” about President Trump’s reimbursement for the $130,000 payment to Daniels. More specifically, prosecutors are examining if executives listed Trump’s reimbursement to his ex-personal attorney Michael Cohen—who originally made the payment to Daniels—as a “legal expense,” according to the Times. Trump Organization attorney Marc Mukasey said the probe was a “political hit job” and “harassment of the president.” Separately, the DA’s office also subpoenaed American Media Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer, which also allegedly had a role in keeping Daniels quiet about her affair. The company has not yet commented on the subpoena.
