Longtime Trump Pal Gets Visit from Manhattan District Attorney as NY Pursues Former President

This could spell trouble for No. 45.

Trump may be gone, at least from political office, but he’s certainly not forgotten.

The former NYC business mogul is still actively pursuing whatever his next maneuver will be, whether that’s another shot at the White House in 2024, a media empire catering to the MAGA movement, or maybe even a role in prompting one his children’s political careers.

But, on the flip side of that coin, The Don is also under a great deal of scrutiny, and many a keen eye are still on him.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and a newly hired high-profile litigator interviewed Donald Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, on Thursday, as part of a criminal probe of the former president’s business dealings, said two people familiar with the investigation.

The interview came after Mark Pomerantz, who has extensive experience in white-collar and organized crime cases, joined District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s team investigating the Trump family business. Pomerantz started on Feb. 2 as special assistant district attorney, said Danny Frost, a spokesman for Vance.

Pomerantz’s hiring is part of a flurry of recent activity in Vance’s investigation, including the issuance in recent days of roughly a dozen new subpoenas, according to the sources. One of those went to Ladder Capital Finance LLC, a major creditor used by Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, to finance the former president’s commercial real estate holdings, the sources said.

Vance’s office has also conducted interviews with Ladder’s staff, one source familiar with the matter said. Ladder did not reply to requests for comment.

This could worry Trump, as Cohen has been extremely forthcoming with information detrimental to his former client, in pursuit of clearing his own name.
