The prosecutor’s office first probed this scandal several years ago, before reaching a dead end. Then, the prosecutors shifted focus to Trump’s business practices, and they eventually charged Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg, although not Donald Trump himself.
Cyrus Vance was the District Attorney for many years before he resigned in January. Now, the new District Attorney Alvin Bragg has moved to reopen the investigation into Trump’s alleged use of campaign funds as “hush money”People familiar with the situation told reporters that Stormy Daniels was a former stripper.
Bragg, evidently, is doing the same as Vance and expecting completely different results. This dream will never end!
His deputies told reporters that Bragg is still optimistic.
Bragg may be trying to find new evidence through negotiations with Weisselberg.
In August, Weisselberg (75) pleaded guilty to tax fraud. He was sentenced to a period of five months imprisonment as part of his plea deal. Weisselberg was facing up to 15 year imprisonment and said that he had previously refused an offer for one to three more years.
Weisselberg provided prosecutors with valuable information regarding the tax fraud case. Weisselberg, for example, told the prosecutors that Trump Organization employees kept their jobs after being charged with tax fraud.
Barry Weisselberg was the ex-manager of Central Park’s ice rink. This CFO also mentioned his son. Matthew Calamari Sr., the Chief Operating Officer was also mentioned.
Bragg is yet to decide whether or not he will bring charges against Trump. Bragg might exercise prosecutorial discretion, and decide to prioritise other cases. Some observers may be already encouraging him to do so.

In other words, the district attorney’s office has been suffering from a losing streak… and they have yet to change course.
