Manhattan Prosecutor Who Helped Bring Down John Gotti Jr. is Now Working on Trump Case
In the 1980’s and early 1990’s the city of New York had a major organized crime problem. But the state district attorney’s office was systematically able to bring down the mobsters. Mark Pomerantz played an important role in that mission.
Pomerantz was responsible for the prosecution of John “Junior” Gotti who took over the Gambino crime family from his father in 1992. And according to recent reports, Pomertantz is now working on the Manhattan DA Cy Vance’s case against Donald Trump.
According to reports, Pomerantz was hired to help with the investigation into Trump. And the prosecutor has already gotten to work. He interviewed former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen on Thursday.
The New York Daily News reports, “Thursday’s sit-down with Pomerantz was Cohen’s fifth interview with Vance’s team, suggesting the ex-Trump attorney is of key interest to the DA as he ramps up his investigation now that the former president is no longer in the White House.”
Molly Crane-Newman also notes, “As part of the investigation, Vance has reportedly also contracted FTI, a major financial consulting company, to help him scrutinize Trump’s voluminous financial dealings. Deutsche Bank and Ladder Capital, two of Trump’s main lenders, have been subpoenaed in the probe.”
While Trump was acquitted in his impeachment trial, his legal jeopardy in New York is quite serious. The former president may also be facing charges in the state of Georgia for election tampering.
