On Thursday, new reports indicated that Manhattan prosecutors have convened a second grand jury to investigate whether to file more charges against former President Donald Trump's family business.

Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold shed some new light on what, specifically, this grand jury is investigating.

"[One] person familiar with the case said staffers for District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. (D) and New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) were working together closely on this phase of the investigation," said the report. "Prosecutors recently inquired about the initiation fees Trump golf courses charged new members, the person said, and Trump's role in setting those fees for individual customers. Trump often cited his clubs' initiation fees in the statements he sent potential lenders, as a sign of the courses' financial health."

The former president is famous for his exorbitant membership fees. Shortly after he was elected, membership prices at Mar-a-Lago doubled to $200,000 — a change some speculated could be an attempt to charge for access to the president.

"On Thursday, neither Trump's company or his post-presidential office responded to requests for comment. Ron Fischetti and Phyllis Malgieri, two of Trump's personal lawyers, declined to comment," noted the report. "In the past, Trump and his family have criticized Vance's investigation — and a separate civil inquiry into his business by James — as motivated by politics and not the law."

Trump so far has not been charged with any criminal wrongdoing.
