According to a resignation letter from one of his top prosecutors, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has “indefinitely” paused his department’s criminal investigation of former President Donald Trump and his company, the Trump Organization.

After Bragg began voicing reservations about pushing through with a case against Trump, Mark Pomerantz and Carey Dunne, who were overseeing the investigation under former DA Cyrus Vance, resigned last month. Pomerantz stated in his letter that he disagreed with Bragg’s decision to discontinue the probe.

“At this time, you have decided not to proceed with the grand jury presentation and not to seek criminal charges,” Pomerantz said in his resignation letter, which was first published by the New York Times. “The probe has been put on hold indefinitely.”

Pomerantz responded to Bragg, “Of course, that is your decision to make.” “I don’t doubt your authority to create it, and I believe you did it in good faith.” “A judgment made in good faith may still be erroneous,” Pomerantz remarked.

“I think your choice not to prosecute Donald Trump now, and on the current record,” Pomerantz wrote, “is erroneous and entirely antithetical to the public interest.”

“As a result, I am unable to remain in my existing position.” The now-retired prosecutor went on to say that he believes the former president is “guilty of several felony offenses” and that not prosecuting him would be a “grave failure of justice.”

After Vance’s tenure ended in January and Bragg took over, Pomerantz and Dunne both opted to stay in the district attorney’s office. According to reports, Vance was on the verge of indicting Trump, despite his office spending nearly a year researching Trump, a former New York City resident.

According to Fox News, Bragg claimed he was learning about the Trump inquiry at the time and promised to “follow the facts.” “It’s a subject that’s on my radar screen, as you’d expect, and something I’m cognizant of and paying attention to,” Bragg said. While Pomerantz and his colleagues were ready to press charges against Trump, the new District Attorney was not.

Despite Bragg’s decision, Pomerantz wrote in his resignation letter that his investigation team “harbors no doubt about whether Trump committed crimes—he did.”

However, a person familiar with the investigation who talked to Fox News Digital denied Pomerantz’s account. The past president’s “Statement of Financial Condition,” which is a report that details an entity’s assets, liabilities, and ability to generate and utilize cash, was referred to by the source.

According to the source, Trump did not inflate his financial statements intentionally, as prosecutors suspected or claimed, but rather underestimated his assets. According to the source, Trump has never missed a payment to a bank, and his financial statement includes that information.

According to Fox News, Trump never missed a payment to a bank, and his financial statement featured “caveats” that “refuted” assertions made by the DA’s office. One person involved with the inquiry told Fox News that the case against Trump was politically motivated and pushed by the former president’s political foes, and that Pomerantz “shouldn’t have been in the DA’s office in the first place.”

Pomerantz was a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison in New York before joining Vance’s office. Last year, he took a leave of absence from the company to work for Vance’s office, which is investigating Trump’s financial transactions. Robert Schumer, the brother of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, is a partner with the company. Pomerantz sent money to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016.

“The fact that Alvin Bragg came in and stopped the injustice against Trump is a huge testament to the system,” a source close to the probe told the network. “Bragg and his colleagues did the right thing legally and ethically, and they didn’t go the usual political way.” According to the source, Bragg and his colleagues “realized they didn’t have a case, so they ended it.”
