Former President Donald Trump’s organization is denying any wrongdoing following the recent indictment against him by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. The charges, which include falsifying business records and tax fraud, stem from an investigation into the Trump Organization’s financial practices.

In a statement, the Trump Organization maintained its innocence, stating that “this is a politically motivated indictment that amounts to nothing more than an effort to tarnish the reputation of a private citizen and intimidate others from coming forward to tell the truth.”
The organization also accused the district attorney’s office of bias, claiming that the investigation was conducted with a preconceived notion of guilt and that evidence was selectively presented to support that conclusion.
However, the indictment alleges that the Trump Organization engaged in a scheme to evade taxes by manipulating property values, and that company executives conspired to hide the true nature of payments made to employees.
Trump himself has also spoken out against the charges, calling them a “witch hunt” and accusing the district attorney of partisan motivations. He has vowed to fight the charges in court.
The legal battle between the former president and the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is expected to be a lengthy and contentious one, with both sides showing no signs of backing down.
