Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has been investigating the Trump Organization for two years but refused to look into the Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein sex trafficking crimes, according to The Daily Caller.
Cyrus Vance Jr. is currently in his third term as a District Attorney.
“I have to tell you, I’m a little overwhelmed because I have never seen a prosecutor’s office do anything like this,” a judge said.
“There is nothing more corrupt than an investigation that is in desperate search of a crime.”
“But, make no mistake, that is exactly what is happening here,” Trump stated.
“After hundreds of subpoenas, over 3 million pages of documents, 4 years of searching, dozens and dozens of interviews, and millions of dollars of taxpayer funds wasted, they continue to be ‘in search of a crime’ and will do anything to frighten people into making up the stories or lies that they want, but have been totally unable to get,” Trump said.

100 women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein was sentenced in 2020 to 23 years in prison for rape in the third degree and committing a criminal sexual act in the first degree.
Epstein pleaded guilty to charges of procuring a person under 18 for prostitution and felony solicitation of prostitution.
More From The Daily Caller:
Vance’s office came under fresh scrutiny when charges of conspiracy and sex trafficking were brought in 2019 against disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
Epstein had plead guilty in Florida in 2008 to charges of procuring a person under 18 for prostitution and felony solicitation of prostitution and was thus required to register as a sex offender.
Three years after the plea deal, Vance’s office argued in 2011 on Epstein’s behalf before the New York Supreme Court.
Assistant Manhattan DA Jennifer Gaffney argued before a shocked Justice Ruth Pickholz that Epstein should be allowed to downgrade his registered sex offender status from the most-dangerous Level 3 to the lowest possible classification, Level 1 despite the assessment that he was a dangerous sex offender likely to prey on young women again.
The New York Post also reported in 2018 that Vance believed Epstein’s lawyers, who claimed in 2011, according to records, that “there are no real victims here.”
