Two of the top prosecutors leading the Manhattan district attorney’s investigation into former President Donald Trump and his business have resigned, a spokeswoman for the DA’s office confirmed to CNBC on Wednesday.

The resignations of Carey Dunne and Mark Pomerantz came Wednesday, following a monthlong pause in the prosecutors’ presentation of evidence to a grand jury, according to The New York Times, which first reported the departures.

“We are grateful for their service,” said Danielle Filson, communications director for the DA’s office, in a statement to CNBC. “The investigation is ongoing. We can’t comment further.”

The Times, citing people familiar with the matter, reported that Alvin Bragg, the new Manhattan district attorney, has indicated having doubts about continuing to build a case against Trump.

Pomerantz and Dunne did not immediately respond to CNBC’s requests for comment.
