(NewsReady.com) – Former President Donald Trump has faced many, many attacks from the Left both while he was in office and after he left. For the last three years, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has been investigating him in a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court. Now, there’s a shake-up in the situation, and rumors say the new DA isn’t quite as committed to the probe as his predecessor.
On February 23, two of the prosecutors who have been handling the case against Trump for years resigned suddenly. Mark Pomerantz and Carey Dunne submitted their resignations. Reports from unnamed sources claimed the reason they quit was that District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who inherited the case from Cy Vance, had indicated he wasn’t interested in bringing charges against the former president.

Bragg’s office denied the allegations made by the press. A spokesperson for the DA said the investigation is ongoing. A replacement for Pomerantz and Dunne was already named. Susan Hoffinger will now lead about 25 lawyers, analysts, and paralegals.
Trump has called the investigation a witch hunt and said he believes it’s not just politically motivated, but racially motivated as well.
The grand jury assigned to the case is set to expire in the spring.
