Anti-Trump prosecutors trying to ‘flip’ Trump Organization CFO against former president

According to former Department of Justice official and FBI general counsel Andrew Weissmann, the successful prosecution of former President Donald Trump will likely require the cooperation of Trump Organization CFO Allen, the Washington Examiner reported.

In an interview with New York Magazine, Weissmann said that because of Weisselberg’s insider knowledge of Trump’s business affairs, he could have a key role in the ongoing investigation by District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. into whether Trump committed either bank, insurance, or tax fraud.

Key to a successful case

“I think a really important piece is going to be flipping the CFO, Weisselberg,” Weissmann said.

He continued, “I think that is going to just be so critical in terms of being able to deal with Trump’s defense of, ‘I didn’t know,’ or ‘Weisselberg was signing off on things, so I had no criminal intent.'”

From the standpoint of a prosecutor, Weissmann said that having an insider like Weisselberg, is “really important” if you do not have “tapes or a paper trail.”

“It’s too early to really speculate until you know whether [Weisselberg] flipped or not,” Weissmann said.

But, he said that if Weisselberg does flip, then Vance’s case against Trump is likely going to be successful.

Flipping Weisselberg

As Weissmann noted, it isn’t certain whether Weisselberg has “flipped” on Trump, but it’s clear that Vance and his investigators in New York are doing their best to get him to do so.

Last month, investigators subpoenaed Weisselberg to get his personal bank records. Just this past week, investigators subpoenaed Weisselberg’s former daughter-in-law, Jennifer Weisselberg. Jennifer was previously married to Allen’s son Barry, who runs the Trump Organization’s Central Park Wollman ice rink, until their divorce in 2018.

According to The Washington Post, investigators seized potential evidence from Jennifer, including a laptop computer and at least three boxes of documents.

In the past, Jennifer had claimed that she had financial documents related to the Trump administration as well as other documents on the Weisselberg family. Her lawyer has said she “has joint-bank-account information, credit cards, tax records, [and] tax returns.”

Jennifer told The Post that her “knowledge of the documents” and her “voice connect the flow of money from various banks and from personal finances that bleed directly into the Trump Organization.”

  4. I wish the DOJ would spend the same amount of time on Quean Hillary and Hunter ,and the FBI Director James Commie. As is look like that King Biden and Queen Harris are being favored by the DOJ and the media to only go after members of the RNC. IS this a beginning of dictatorship run by the DNC.

    1. You are absolutely right Robert. The Media is owned and controlled by our enemies as well. Sad but the Public listen to them and believe the lies Seeing Culture Marxism live.

  5. Another Stalin-like so called investigation against Trump sponsored by the corrupt radical leftists and their multiple political crime families. Helped by anti-trumpets and enemies with an axe to grind! No investigations on the Clintons, Obama’s, or Biden’s though! Corrupt government without end! No accountability!

  6. Are there any Democrats with a brain? They have been pounding on Trump for years and haven’t found anything except how to waste money. When are the going to stop their BS? They make me sick.

  7. WHY ARETHE “SO CALLED LEADERS NOT BUSY ABIDING BY THEIR OATHS?” “WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE”. THEY HAVE PLENTY ON THEIR PLATES WITHOUT TRYING TO KEEP MEDIA AND ALL EYES ON TRYING TO DESTROY OUR GREAT FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP. THOSE EVIL SO CALLD OCCUPANTS IN THE WHITE HOUSE ALL NEED TO BE INVESTIGATE D FOR NUMEROUS LIES, BETRAYALS, VIOLATING THEIR OATHS OF OFFICE, ETC ETC. WHEN ARE OUR AMERICAN CITIZENS GOING TO WAKE UP AND HELP CEAN OUT THE SWAMP?

  8. They have enough on Biden’s without digging! Leave President Trump alone and go after Hunter Biden and family. Look into the Democrats backgrounds, I am sure there are plenty of crap there. We are not interested in who Biden’s dog bit, we are interested in Biden’s going to prison and take their cronies with them! The even admit to wrong doing and nothing is done!

  9. Fraudulent government is the reason of all trouble and baseless accusation against Donald Trump. Those rats shall be destroyed, and our Government need deep cleansing, since such horrible things are taking place!

  10. Wiessmann is saying that the CFO transferred money from one bank account to another and that is an al-edged crime then you would have to prosecute almost every American with bank accounts who move money from one to the other .

  11. I think we now know the FBI has been Corrupted and I’m sure that corruption goes deeper than we ever dreamed A fine example is Hillary Clinton Like Benghazi and The Clinton foundation it’s all about cover ups And the money behind them
    I don’t think we have a Justice Department anymore not one with any integrity or respect they lost all that when they allowed Obama to get away with Obama gate the biggest scandal in US history and the media won’t cover it if you really think about How many of these people actually commit treason
    And like everything else Democrats twist everything and they pray you let them sweep it under the rug

  12. In the back of my mind, I wonder how much $$ they offered the CFO’s “former daughter-in-law” to turn over everything she had??
