New York Federal Prosecutors Request Interviews With Trump Organization Execs: CNN

New York federal prosecutors are seeking interviews with Trump Organization executives, CNN reports Tuesday. It’s not clear exactly what information the prosecutors are seeking—but CNN notes that in the past few months, the attorney’s office has launched at least two probes into Trump-linked organizations. The first is the investigation into potential campaign-finance violations stemming from alleged hush-money payments to former fixer Michael Cohen; the second is a probe into possible financial abuses by the Trump inaugural committee. Just yesterday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office reportedly subpoenaed all documents concerning the committee’s donors and vendors. CNN reports that the subpoena revealed that prosecutors are probing other possible crimes including conspiracy against the U.S., false statements, mail fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering.
