Mark Pomerantz resigned on February 23 along with other prosecutors Carrie Dunne from the criminal investigation into the former American president.

Summaries from a letter published Wednesday by the American daily confirm that the two men resigned in protest of the choice of Alvin Bragg, the new district attorney in Manhattan, not to prosecute the Republican billionaire.

The New York Times reported that Mr Pomerantz had written in his resignation letter that such action was “against the public interest”. “The team investigating Mr. Trump has no doubt that he committed a crime – he did,” he added.

This criminal case is particularly related to suspicions of fraudulent valuation of assets in the Trump organization – including golf clubs, luxury hotels and other real estate assets – by obtaining more lucrative loans from banks or reducing its taxes.

The newspaper said the two prosecutors planned to convict Donald Trump for creating false financial documents.

Mr Bragg promised to continue the investigation without the two resigning.

If it is related to the same facts, this trial is different from the civil file led by New York State Attorney General Letitia James. She has so far failed, asking the former president and his two children, Donald Jr. and Ivanka to testify by oath.

The criminal investigation has already led to the indictment of the Trump organization and its historic finance director, Allen Weiselberg, in July, especially for tax evasion on the income and benefits of this close ally of the former American president. The Donald Trump team and Mr Weiselberg have pleaded not guilty and are due to stand trial in 2022.

At the same time, a grand jury was set up on the subject of suspicions of fraudulent appraisals of assets, to decide on potential indictments. It is in this area that the tax returns of the former New York businessman, the first American president since the 1970s, are prosecuted before the Supreme Court.

The former president has expressed doubts about his party’s intention to seek re-election to the 2024 presidential election.
