New York Attorney General Letitia James said her investigation of the Trump Organization, which had been civil, has morphed into a criminal probe, making her the second state official who might bring criminal charges against the former president.

”We have informed the Trump Organization that our investigation into the organization is no longer purely civil in nature. We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan D.A. We have no additional comment at this time,” Fabien Levy, a spokesman for James, said in a statement issued late Tuesday.
