President Trump is fighting back against the latest witch hunt against him.
Mark Pomerantz, a former senior prosecutor on the Manhattan DA’s team investigating Trump resigned in protest after District Attorney Alvin Bragg ended the investigation.
One of the major reasons why the Manhattan district attorney’s investigation of Donald Trump has assumed an Ahab-like odor in its insistence of getting the man rather than first identifying a particular crime is the role of Mark Pomerantz. A retired former prosecutor and defense lawyer in his seventies, once with a distinguished reputation (I encountered him when I was looking for Wall Street law firm jobs as a law student in the mid-1990s), Pomerantz came aboard the Trump investigation without pay in order to investigate a particular man rather than any particular crime. This led to the investigation perfectly tracking the warnings of Robert Jackson and Antonin Scalia about the hazards of special prosecutors with tunnel vision: a constantly shifting focus from one theory to another, held together only by the hope of finally finding something to stick to Trump.
When district attorney Alvin Bragg pulled the plug on the wasteful and meandering investigation (one he has since revived), Pomerantz resigned in protest, then took his resignation letter public in March 2022, using his position as an investigator of non-public matters to publicly accuse Trump of committing unspecified crimes — to which I objected
He then went on to write a book on the topic.
In the book, he claims the investigation “developed evidence convincing us that Donald Trump had committed serious crimes.”
60 minutes brought on Mark Pomerantz to promote his new book.
A former Manhattan special assistant district attorney who investigated Donald Trump said Sunday night there are “many bits and pieces of evidence” the district attorney could use to bring criminal charges against the former president.
Mark Pomerantz, a former senior prosecutor on the Manhattan DA’s team investigating Trump and his organization’s business dealings, said prosecutors weighing similar evidence against anyone other than the former president would have moved ahead with charges in a “flat second.”
Pomerantz made the comments in a “60 Minutes” interview promoting a new book about his time investigating Trump. He pointed to evidence he had access to during the investigation – principal among them, that Trump personally signed off on inflating his own net worth to obtain more favorable banks loans.
“There were many bits and pieces of evidence on which we could rely in making that case,” Pomerantz told CBS’s Bill Whitaker.
Donald Trump responded to it calling the interview a “hit job.”
He said, the interview didn’t mention “that the Financial Statements have a powerful & complete “Disclaimer Clause,” that the properties & assets are generally worth far more today than they were in the financial statement, that the most valuable asset is not even listed in the statement.”
He also called out Pomerantz’s ties to Hillary Clinton.
Trump said, “sounds like Hillary’s Lawyer Pomerantz wanted to make money with a Book, but has put himself in great legal jeopardy.”
The 60 Minutes “hit job” doesn’t say that the Financial Statements have a powerful & complete “Disclaimer Clause,” that the properties & assets are generally worth far more today than they were in the financial statement, that the most valuable asset is not even listed in the statement, that lawyer Mark Pomerantz & his law firm were Clinton’s lawyers who then went to work for the D.A. to “get Trump,” that Pomerantz & his antics make it impossible for me to be treated fairly, & NOBODY WAS HURT!
Crooked Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, radically deranged Mark Pomerantz, led the fake investigation into me and my business at the Manhattan D.A.’s Office and quit because D.A. Bragg, rightfully, wanted to drop the “weak” and “fatally flawed” case. Now, Pomerantz got himself a book deal, and is obsessively spreading falsehoods about me. With all of this vicious disinformation being revealed by a “prosecutor,” how can I ever be treated fairly in New York, or anywhere else? End the Witch Hunts!
This is disgraceful conduct by Pomerantz, especially since, as always, I’ve done nothing wrong!
According to David LaBahn, President and CEO of the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys:
“The most likely implication for any lawyer disclosing publicly any materials derived from a grand jury proceeding without a written court order, including witness testimony, is a formal felony criminal charge for violating grand jury secrecy…”
While he has totally discredited any case against me, people still don’t write the fact that Mark Pomerantz represented Crooked Hillary Clinton, and then left his office “without pay in order to investigate a particular man rather than any particular crime” (National Review).
It shows from the beginning, as were many other events, it was nothing more than a political Witch Hunt!
Sounds like Hillary’s Lawyer Pomerantz wanted to make money with a Book, but has put himself in great legal jeopardy. I have done nothing wrong!
What Mark Pomerantz did, according to the highly respected J. Anthony Jordan, President of the District Attorneys Association of the State of New York:
“By writing and releasing a book in the midst of an ongoing case, the author is upending the norms and ethics of prosecutorial conduct and is potentially in violation of New York criminal law.”
End the witch hunts!
