Trump’s “empire” is crumbling on all fronts as a judge ruled that the criminal case against former Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg can proceed.
A New York State judge ruled Friday that a criminal fraud and tax evasion prosecution against the Trump Organization and its former CFO, Allen Weisselberg, can proceed.
Weisselberg and the companyto dismiss all 15 counts charged against them. Judge Juan Merchan dismissed one of several tax fraud counts against the Trump Organization but allowed all others to remain.
Trump’s lawyers again tried to claim that the prosecution was political and asked the judge to dismiss all of the charges, but as has been the outcome in every case where Trump has tried their political persecution defense, it was rejected.
Trump is desperate to return to politics because it is the only way for him to make money and halt the prosecutions.
Without the ability to corruptly use the power of the presidency to protect himself, Donald Trump and his family are finally facing justice.
