James became the chief prosecutor of New York later that year, and he made investigating Trump a key campaign promise. As the general election in November this year approached, James briefly discussed the race for governor of the Empire State, but withdrew from the competition last month to focus on prosecuting the former president.
James’ investigation is a civil investigation, focusing on whether Trump has exaggerated the value of the Trump Organization’s assets to obtain loans and depreciates it elsewhere to obtain tax deductions.
Another criminal investigation led by the Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance is also investigating whether Trump lied to banks and tax authorities about the value of his assets. Although Vance’s term as a Manhattan DA expires on January 1, his office is now led by Alvin Bragg and will continue to investigate. Last month, Vance also subpoenaed Trump to provide evidence, but Trump has not yet complied with the order.
