Manhattan’s District Attorney, Cyrus Vance Jr joins Jill and Victor for an in depth discussion of his life and some infamous prosecutions.

Manhattan’s District Attorney, Cyrus Vance Jr. is looming large in former President Donald Trump's life as he is leading one of the most high-profile criminal investigations into Trump financial dealings. In addition to his investigation of Trump, Cy has also worked to transform the Manhattan District Attorney's office to include cybercrime, sex trafficking, and terrorism while also leading numerous other high-profile courtroom victories, including People v. Weinstein. Prior to being elected District Attorney in 2010, Cy worked as an Assistant District Attorney in the office he now leads, served as special assistant to the New York Attorney General, co-founded the McNaul Ebel Nawrot Helgren & Vance law firm in Seattle, and joined Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello as a partner when he returned to NY. We join him on this episode to talk about his upbringing, some of his proudest moments as District Attorney, his investigation into former President Trump, the Harvey Weinstein case, and what's in store for him after he retires at the end of the year.

Yes we know the audio quality is not as good as we would want on Mr Vance Jr’s end, but we hope you still enjoy the show.
