Trump’s second arraignment: Watch how it happened
Donald Trump gloated on Thursday as he scored a rare legal win in the investigation into the taxes of his New York golf club.
The Westchester County, New York district attorney confirmed that a two-year investigation into the Trump Organization’s valuation of a golf club there has been closed and will not result in any criminal charges.
Mr Trump took to Truth Social to describe the dropping of the case as the “honorable thing to do” and asked “when do I get my reputation back?”
“WHEN WILL THE OTHER FAKE CASES AGAINST ME BE DROPPED? ELECTION INTERFERENCE!!!” he wrote in an all-caps rant.
The move comes just days after Mr Trump appeared in court in his second criminal case in as many months.
On Tuesday, the former president was arrested and arraigned on 37 charges over his handling of classified national security documents after leaving the White House to which he pleaded not guilty, claiming he was a victim of political persecution.
He marked his 77th birthday as the first current or former president arrested on federal criminal charges in American history.

He echoed some other Republicans — including Bill Barr, Chris Christie, and Mike Pompeo — in his criticism of the former president, though certainly not all of his fellow Republicans.
