Trump Organization now subject to criminal investigation in New York, state attorney general's office tells CNN
  • New York prosecutors are conducting a criminal investigation into the Trump Organization, CNN reported.
  • "We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity," the New York Attorney General's office said.
The New York Attorney General's office is now conducting a criminal probe into the Trump Organization, a spokesperson told CNN on Tuesday.

"We have informed the Trump Organization that our investigation into the Organization is no longer purely civil in nature," spokesperson Fabien Levy told the outlet. "We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan DA."

The news comes weeks after it was revealed that Michael Cohen, former President Donald Trump's one-time personal attorney, had been interviewed multiple times by Manhattan's district attorney. The DA's criminal inquiry has focused on whether the Trump Organization — an umbrella company for the former president's business interests — engaged in tax and insurance fraud, among other crimes.

Speaking to Insider, Cohen said his former boss should expect more bad news.

"As more documents are reviewed by the NYAG and NYDA, it appears that the troubles for Donald Trump just keep on coming," he said. "Soon enough, Donald and Associates will be held responsible for their actions."
