The Manhattan district attorney said Thursday the criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump and his company is continuing with prosecutors reviewing new evidence, dismissing speculation that the case was closed following the high-profile departure of two senior prosecutors.
“Investigations are not linear. So we are following the leads in front of us, and that’s what we’re doing,” Alvin Bragg Jr. told CNN in an interview. “The investigation is very much ongoing.”
The comments from Bragg, a former federal prosecutor and assistant New York attorney general, are aimed at ending speculation that he has shut down the long-running investigation and comes six weeks after the prosecutors departed and Trump’s lawyers all but declared victory.
