The Manhattan District Attorney's Office is expanding its criminal probe of President Trump and his businesses -- issuing subpoenas for documents pertaining to a Trump property in suburban Westchester County, N.Y., Fox News has confirmed.  

The land in question is the Seven Springs Estate which is composed of 213 acres across three towns north of New York City: North Castle, New Castle and Bedford. The lawyer for North Castle, Roland Baroni, told Fox News that town received a subpoena "on December 16", 2020, and that it has fully complied with the request from the office of Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr.  

Baroni says Vance's office asked for "voluminous" files that included "all the planning board" and "any tax records pertaining to the assessment" and "valuation of the property." The DA also wanted to know if President Trump had challenged its value, "which he did."

In 1995, the town settled with Trump for $7.5 million. By 2012, the property was said to be valued at about $300 million when Trump tried to build a golf course and then a residential complex at the site.
