Federal prosecutors in New York have quietly closed the book on their investigation into any role the Trump Organization – the umbrella organization for President Donald Trump's hundreds of private businesses – played in the payments of hush money to a porn star and a Playboy Playmate.

Both women allege they had sexual relationships with Trump.

CNN, in reporting the breaking news minutes ago, notes federal prosecutors "have been ordered by a judge to release additional information connected to their related probe of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, according to court documents filed Wednesday."
