According to the Washington Examiner, James and Vance Jr. are investigating the possibility of bank, tax, or insurance fraud by former President Donald Trump and the organization.
ABC News reported that the office of the Manhattan DA presented evidence to a grand jury as it digs into the personal and business tax returns of former President Trump to see if they should file criminal charges.
A spokesperson for the former president did not immediately return a request for comment.
