‘An opening salvo’: Former prosecutor suggests Ivanka Trump could face criminal charges

New York prosecutors last week announced indictments against the Trump Organization and Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg on allegations of tax evasion.

Although former President Donald Trump was not charged, one expert recently opined that his eldest daughter could soon find herself charged with a crime.

“We have everything we need”

According to MSNBC legal analyst and former federal prosecutor Cynthia Alksne, the recent indictment represented just “an opening salvo” with Ivanka Trump representing the next likely target.

“Ordinarily or quite often, New York State indictments are not as detailed as this,” she said during a recent appearance on the cable news network, according to Breitbart. “The prosecutors went to an amazing amount of effort to show Weisselberg we have everything we need.”

She went on to suggest that prosecutors are not only “pressuring” Weisselberg to “flip” on the former president.

“The amount of detail in this indictment tells me they’re trying to tell other people you have got to flip because we have everything,” Alksne said, as Breitbart reported.

Noting that “there are a lot of other people mentioned” in the court documents released by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, Alksne theorized that prosecutors hope that Weisselberg’s cooperation will spark a chain reaction that “builds and builds.”

“This case is over”

As for where the case is likely to go next, Alksne said she would “focus on the kids” when pursuing such charges.

“We’ve heard a lot of this reporting about Ivanka Trump getting consulting fees, consulting fees, or things she may or may not have done,” she said.

Both the Trump Organization and Weisselberg pleaded not guilty to the charges against them in a Manhattan courtroom on Thursday. Company attorney Ron Fischetti told Fox News that this is a bad-faith prosecution rooted in political animus rather than fact.

“I have never seen this office bring a case like this and, quite frankly, I am astonished,” he said. “The district attorney is supposed to be apolitical, but everyone knows that the only reason they are proceeding with this case is because it is Trump. As far as we are concerned, this case is over.”

Prosecutors allege Weisselberg neglected to pay taxes on about $1.76 million in income and fringe benefits over the course of 15 years.

  6. Keep it up Libs – you are really making people angry with the constant bullying of a family. Where are your investigations into ANYTHING connected with the Dems????

  7. Keep it up libs. If you think for a minute that Jan 6 was an innsurection, you have seen nothing of whats coming.

  8. In other words, they are trying to manufacture a reason to indict Trump! If they would put this much effort into prosecuting actual criminals like the BLM and ANTIFA, then the problems New York has may be cut in half!

  9. After 4 years of witch hunts…..I no longer believe anything the dems or left have to say. Everything they ever claimed has been total lies.

  10. This is total insanity only worthy of the “Reign of Terror” during the French Revolution when any member of the nobility could be brought before the guillotine for public execution or prosecutions in Russia of any wealthy person or “prosperous” farmers called “Kulaks” who only kept a small amount of grain for their own use or during the “Cultural Revolution” in China when just being an educated person could get you executed or sent to a prison camp. Everyone at the New York Attorney General’s office needs to be psychologically evaluated for possible commitment to a mental facility.

    1. agree it time to test and question the motives here? This is not justice? Condemn with out a crime? Pure witch hunt? Time to stop this racketeering?

    2. no
      everyone in the NY ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE NEEDS TO BE HUNG FOR LYING, NOT UP HOLDING THIER OATHS, FOR ABUSE OF POWERR, TREASON, AND MANY OTHER THINGS. I am tired of these corupt lawyers, politicians, and the super rich that drive them getting away with murder.

  11. The Democrats need to go. The sooner the better. America can’t withstand the nonsense being spewed on a daily basis. Our country has become the laughing stock of the world.

    TA, the lies are not coming from the dems, it’s the other side, just take a moment to LISTEN to good old Mitch and ‘don’
    Jackie. you say a family is being bullying? Were the members of the Five Familes of New York bulled by the police and the prosecutors?
    Kise, the prosecutors have a life, that is to put bad people behind bars. Hopefully they will be able to do it soon.

  14. Can’t these prosecutors be prosecuted? How filthy is this anyway?! NY attorney general made the decision to go after Trump BEFORE she was even elected to office! I would hate to be a democrat right now. They will be responsible for the fall of the US to China! We are all aware of this! You would have to be deaf, dumb and blind to take that path! Best be learning Mandarin!

  15. Don’t talk to me about prosecuting anybody after what the Democrates have pulled. You will lose this battle of lies, just like all the rest you have tried to prosecute.
