New York prosecutors claimed on Wednesday they have a new “insider” in the investigation against former President Donald Trump, according to a new interview by Andrew Weismann on MSNBC.
Weissmann, a former Justice Department official and FBI general counsel, said during the interview, “I’d like to throw out one more name, which is Jeff McConney, because I don’t think that’s gotten enough attention because last week the reports were that he went into the state grand jury, and he is the controller of the Trump Organization,” Weissmann said on Wednesday on MSNBC.
“So, again, all speculation, but clearly you’re looking for an insider. That’s why there is so much focus on Allen Weisselberg trying to get somebody who is on the inside who would know where every penny went. Well, that’s the controller as well as the CFO,” he added.
The Latest Trump Accusations
“So if Jeff McConney is cooperating, that is really bad news potentially for Weisselberg and for the Trump Organization and other individuals up to and including maybe the former president,” Weismann said.
Regarding a possible insider, Weismann included tough words against the former president and the investigation.
“In other words, Manhattan may have found their insider, because it would be unusual to put somebody like McConney into the state grand jury, where he would be given immunity as soon as he testifies automatically if they didn’t think that he had something useful to provide,” he said.
Trump’s Latest Response
Trump wrote a scathing statement on Thursday of the “witch hunts” against him.
“Now that I have been totally exonerated on the Mueller Witch Hunt with a charge of No Collusion, I have often wondered, if a fake investigation is illegally started based on information provided and paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, shouldn’t they be held accountable?” Trump said.
“Not to mention, wasting tens of millions of taxpayer dollars and interfering with years of a presidential administration?
“I fought the made-up Hoax strongly and effectively, and I won,” Trump added.
The former president concluded, “But fear not, the Radical Left, country destroying, illegal Witch Hunts continue, and I will win those too!”
