Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., who is overseeing a criminal investigation that poses one of the biggest legal threats to former President Donald Trump, won’t seek re-election.

“Over the next few months, while the election goes on outside, our work -- powered by your talent, ethics, and unbending professionalism -- will continue,” Vance said in a staff memo posted online Friday. “Inside, our investigations and trials -- from the high-profile to the ones that never make the newspaper -- will proceed.”
