A federal judge has confirmed that the Southern District of New York has closed their investigation into Trump Campaign finance violations that was focused on Michael Cohen and the Trump Organization.

According to The Daily Caller:

A federal judge Wednesday confirmed federal prosecutors in New York City ended their investigation into Trump campaign finance violations, which focused on former Trump attorney Michael Cohen and the Trump Organization.

Judge William Pauley confirmed the end of the probe in an order to release the remaining files in the case against Michael Cohen, the former Trump attorney who is serving a three-year prison term for several crimes.

The end of the investigation indicates that no additional Trump Organization executives — a group that includes Donald Trump Jr. — will be charged in the investigation, which was led by attorneys in U.S. attorney’s office in the Southern District of New York (SDNY).

CNN reported earlier in July that prosecutors were winding down their investigation and were planning not to charge anyone else in the investigation.

The investigation was focused on whether Trump Organization executives and Trump himself violated campaign finance laws by reimbursing Cohen for out of pocket expenses.
