CNN: Manhattan Feds Seek Interviews With Trump Org Execs

Federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York are seeking interviews with top executives at the Trump Organization, CNN reported on Tuesday.

Prosecutors have already interviewed at least two former staffers with the Trump presidential campaign about potential links to the Trump Organization, the report says.

Investigators purportedly asked about coordination between the campaign and the organization, and inquired about the company’s payment structure and financial interactions with the campaign.

While the exact focus of the inquiry is unclear, the report comes one day after prosecutors from the same office issued a wide-ranging subpoena to the Presidential Inaugural Committee that managed the Trump inauguration as part of an investigation into whether the committee took in foreign money.

The number of people subject to the interviews and their positions are unclear from the report.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
