The 45th President issued a statement Thursday via email from “Save America” PAC responding to prosecutors in New York who are targeting the Trump Organization.

Allen Weisselberg, the longtime chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, pleaded not guilty to tax fraud and other charges Thursday — in the first criminal case brought as part of Manhattan DA Cy Vance’s investigation into former President Donald Trump’s business dealings. In addition to the tax fraud rap, Weisselberg was hit with scheme conspiracy, grand larceny and falsifying business records charges, prosecutors said in Manhattan Supreme Court, New York Post reported.

“The political Witch Hunt by the Radical Left Democrats, with New York now taking over the assignment, continues. It is dividing our Country like never before!” President Trump said in an email statement.

Prosecutors had probed whether Weisselberg and his family had accepted a number of gifts from the former president during his decades-long employment at the organization but failed to pay taxes on the bonuses.

In a statement prior to his arraignment Thursday, Weisselberg’s attorneys, Mary Mulligan and Bryan Skarlatos, said he intends to fight the charges in court, reported New York Post.

The indictment against the longtime Trump confidante represents the first charges brought by Vance, who, along with New York Attorney General Letitia James, has been investigating Trump’s business empire for two years. Continued Below

“This is not justice; this is politics,” the company said. Continued Below
