The Manhattan district attorney’s office has expanded its criminal probe of President Donald Trump’s company to include a sprawling property in Westchester County, New York.
A lawyer for the town of Bedford, New York, told CNBC that DA Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office issued a subpoena to the town for records related to the Trump Organization’s Seven Springs Estate site sometime “before Christmas” as part of a criminal investigation.
Bedford’s lawyer, Joel Sachs, said he believed that in addition to Bedford, the towns of New Castle and North Castle also had records subpoenaed by Vance’s office for the criminal probe, because the 213-acre property spans all three towns.
Prosecutors’ interest in the 212-acre property called Seven Springs is a significant widening of an investigation that began more than a year ago.
It also draws closer to President Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization, who was directly involved in discussions about the property now under scrutiny, according to court filings.
Prosecutors sent grand jury subpoenas within the past two months to town officials seeking documents and communications that officials had with the Trump Organization relating to development plans it considered for the sprawling family property.
