The investigation into potential criminal charges against Donald Trump went up a notch this week as US Attorneys appointed Paul Weiss lawyer (on leave for the purpose) to assist in the investigation of Trump and his family and businesses.
Pomerantz is an experienced white collar crime attorney. He had established a small criminal defense practice before joining Paul Weiss and has also served as a federal prosecutor in the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, eventually leading the appellate unit.
When he left he departed in 1982 for private practice, he defended numerous cases involving organized crime; his law partner later estimated that they handled about 25 cases related to organized crime. In one notable case regarding mobster Anthony Indelicato, Pomerantz argued on appeal that Indelicato had been involved with a single criminal episode—the simultaneous murder of Carmine Galante and two others in an attack in a Brooklyn restaurant— and thus could not be convicted of a “pattern of racketeering” as required for conviction under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).]The case was reheard en banc (i.e., by all twelve active judges on the appeals court), a rare step, leading to a decision clarifying the meaning of the RICO law
Already having a team of financial experts to assist, the Attorney General’s Office is to assess possible offenses by Trump and his interests, which are to include tax fraud, insurance and banking activities.
The former president and senior executives of the former White House occupier, one of Donald Trump’s key debtors Deutsche Bank, “one of the key partners and a loyal defender, asked for access to additional data such as Sans, the former president and” did everything to get away from him after the January 6 Capital invasion. ”
Newspaper reports indicate that the possible frauds relate to illegally raised values permitting large borrowings and the financial ‘under valuations’ that permit him to pay lower taxes than would otherwise be the case.
