Trump & His Children are Going Down Now That Weisselberg Has Flipped

A lawsuit filed back in June by the State of New York has the potential to bring down Donald Trump and his children as it exposes a conspiracy to misuse charitable funds and break multiple laws. This is especially true now that Trump’s financial executive, Allen Weisselberg, is cooperating with prosecutors.

The lawsuit was filed against President Trump and “his three eldest children” who are Ivanka, Eric and Don Jr.. It is not an exaggeration to say that the misdeeds being alleged in this New York case, if proven, could result in all four Trumps spending numerous years in jail. And proof of their crimes can now come from the testimony of Allen Weisselberg.

Law professor and former FBI special agent Asha Rangappa pointed out the connections between the Weisselberg deal and the Trump Foundation lawsuit in an important thread she posted on Twitter.

In it she explains how the New York Attorney General lawsuit (which is seeking restitution from Trump in the amount of $2.8 million) has uncovered a conspiracy by Trump and his children (all trustees of the Trump Foundation) to commit various crimes, including (but not limited to) tax fraud. She believes Weisselberg can now provide all the details the prosecutors need to prove their case.

Here is what Rangappa wrote:

“The Weisselberg news can’t be divorced from the current civil suit against the Trump Foundation by the NY Attorney General.”

“The gist is that the Trump Campaign used the Foundation – supposedly a charity – as its campaign slush fund and to enrich the Trump Org. This is a no-no, because charities are tax exempt, since the idea is that they are being, you know, charitable.”

“Weisselberg, along with Trump and the Trump kids, are on the board of the Foundation (though Weisselberg testified in a deposition that he had no idea he was on the board, since it never met). But he signed the tax forms, and knows how the money was spent.”

“The NY AG doesn’t have jurisdiction to file criminal charges, since tax and campaign finance violations are federal. But the info was referred to the IRS, the FEC, and DOJ back in June.”

“A coordinated attempt to use a sham charity as a source of campaign funds and self-enrichment is…conspiracy. And on that front, noteworthy in the WaPo piece above is the role of Corey Lewandowski in asking Weisselberg to bring the Foundation checks to campaign events.”

“So even if this remains only on the campaign finance track, this is, I think, about more than just the hush money payments to women POTUS had affairs with. The campaign finance angle leads to the Foundation, which leads to how the entire Org was keeping its books.”

The importance of this cannot be overstated. There is already a New York State lawsuit under way, and the President of the United States is powerless to prevent it from proceeding. The New York authorities have already brought in the IRS, the Federal Election Commission, and the Department of Justice, all of whom are likely to find evidence of crimes totaling millions of dollars.

And they all have the authority to investigate and prosecute these crimes. And they have already begun the investigation process, looking at multiple alleged crimes committed by Trump and “his three eldest children.”

Here is more information from the Washington Post article written by David A. Fahrenthold that was published on June 14th. This article says that:

New York’s attorney general filed suit against President Trump and his three eldest children Thursday, alleging “persistently illegal conduct” at the president’s personal charity and saying that Trump had repeatedly misused the nonprofit organization to pay off his businesses’ creditors, to decorate one of his golf clubs and to stage a multimillion-dollar giveaway at 2016 campaign events.”

“In the suit, Attorney General Barbara Underwood asked a state judge to dissolve the Donald J. Trump Foundation. She asked that its remaining $1 million in assets be distributed to other charities and that Trump be forced to pay at least $2.8 million in restitution and penalties.”

“Meanwhile, Underwood sent letters to the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission in which she identified what she called “possible violations” of tax law and federal campaign law by Trump’s foundation.”

The point here is that Weisselberg has personal knowledge of all of these illegal financial transactions by Donald Trump and his children. There is no doubt that he can prove that the theft of charitable funds took place.

There is also no doubt that what Weisselberg knows (and can help prove in court) may bring down Donald Trump and his children who have played a major part in his financial frauds for many years.
