D.A. Is Investigating Trump and His Company Over Fraud, Filing Suggests

The Manhattan district attorney’s office suggested on Monday that it has been investigating President Trump and his company for possible bank and insurance fraud, a significantly broader inquiry than the prosecutors have acknowledged in the past.
The office of the district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., made the disclosure in a new federal court filing arguing Mr. Trump should have to comply with its subpoena seeking eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns. Mr. Trump has asked a judge to declare the subpoena invalid.
The prosecutors did not directly identify the focus of their inquiry but said that “undisputed” news reports last year about Mr. Trump’s business practices make it clear that the office had a legal basis for the subpoena.
The reports, including investigations into the president’s wealth and an article on the congressional testimony of his former lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, said that the president may have illegally inflated his net worth and the value of his properties to lenders and insurers. Lawyers for Mr. Trump have said he did nothing wrong.

Which opens the question, if illegal activity by Trump is so easily found, was her limiting the inpeachment investigations obstruction of justice?

the House has to investigate any, part, or all of impeachable/criminal offenses…
You would think that they should and would, but since the object is political power rather than justice, the path isn’t so clear to our current Congress. I mean, after all, who wants to find that the criminal wrong doing used to impeach/unseat a current sitting president/impeachable official is used against one of your own tomorrow?
It isn’t like the days of Nixon when the good of the country came before the good of the political party.

What of these activities do Dems and their favored parties have their fingers in. May not want to look too closely as the knife could cut both ways.

Which means a Biden Administration definitely won’t investigate Trump on its own volition.
