Vance has been making headlines as his investigations into the Trump organization have ramped up over the past few months. In February it was reported that Vance had brought on former prosecutor Mark Pomerantz to help with his investigation into the family. Pomerantz has a long history of prosecuting white collar crimes as well as organized crime in the New York system.
Vance has also interviewed Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. concerning the murky self-dealing aspects between the Trump organization—the family’s private business—and Trump’s Inaugural Committee. The New York District Attorney’s office has also reportedly expanded their investigation into Trump family real estate holdings, and has been able to secure some of the Trump’s long-hidden tax returns. Whether or not Vance’s investigation will uncover how Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s personal wealth ballooned while they were technically White House advisers remains to be seen.
An interesting aspect of the Trump extradition story is that while Trump does have a residency in the Sunshine State, he usually moves to New Jersey’s Bedminster during the summer months. While New Jersey has a similar extradition statute to Florida, the governor of the state is Democrat Phil Murphy. Frankly, almost any governor not named DeSantis would be one step closer to justice. In March, Vance announced his plans to retire at the end of 2021. Hopefully, he can place Donald Trump (and friends?) back in a New York court before he leaves.
