(JustPatriots.com)- Last week, the New York Times obtained the resignation letter from the Manhattan prosecutor who quit last month after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg shut down the investigation into former President Donald Trump’s business.
In his resignation letter, Mark F. Pomerantz, who resigned from the DA’s office on February 23 along with another prosecutor, Carey R. Dunne, argued that the DA’s office could have convicted Trump and claimed that the former President was “guilty of numerous felony violations.”
Pomerantz blasted the DA’s office, saying in his resignation letter that it was a “grave failure of justice” not to pursue an indictment against Trump.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office was investigating allegations that Donald Trump manipulated the financial statements of the Trump Organization to secure loans. However, District Attorney Alvin Bragg, concerned that the prosecution would be unable to prove the charges, last month decided to drop the case.
According to the New York Times, Pomerantz and Dunne had wanted to charge Trump with altering business documents on annual financial statements, a felony in New York State. In his letter, Pomerantz wrote that the team investigating the allegations “harbors no doubt” that Donald Trump broke the law.
Pomerantz wrote that, while there may be risks in pursuing an indictment against Trump, he was convinced that failing to prosecute the former president “will pose much greater risks in terms of public confidence in the fair administration of justice.”
In a statement to the New York Times, Trump’s lawyer Ronald P. Fischetti said charges would be unwarranted, adding that Pomerantz had several opportunities to present the results of his investigation to the District Attorney “and failed.”
Fischetti told the Times that DA Bragg should be applauded for making an apolitical charging decision only based on the lack of evidence “and nothing else.”
In a statement to the Times, the Trump Organization described Pomerantz as a “Never Trumper.” It blasted the investigation saying there had never been “this level of corruption” in the legal system.
