On Wednesday, news broke that charges could be delivered tomorrow against the Trump Organization and CFO Allen Weisselberg. While Trump is not likely to be charged tomorrow, his long-time company is in serious jeopardy.
New York investigators have been working hard to deepen their case against the Trump Organization. And while the probe is now a criminal one, prosecutors want to deepen their case.
A key part of doing so is getting CFO Allen Weisselberg to flip. The long-time Trump moneyman has, thus far, been resistant to do so. During a Tuesday appearance on MSNBC, Jennifer Weisselberg explained why he hasn’t done so quite yet.
No matter what room he’s in, Donald Trump always assumes he the smart person in it. When he was in the White House he frequently ignored the ideas of more experienced and educated advisers.
And whether he realizes it or not, Trump is now in the biggest legal fight of his life. Michael Cohen, a long-time lawyer for the ex-president, says he will take control of his defense and he has no idea what he’s doing.
Working in the White House communications office is not an easy job. And there are only so many people understand the pressure of doing so. Nicolle Wallace does. The MSNBC host worked as George W. Bush‘s Communications Director from January of 2005 through the summer of 2006.
The Trump White House never felt the need to tell their voters the truth. Kellyanne Conway perfectly represented this ideal when speaking about Sean Spicer. Trump’s first press secretary never lied to the American people, she claimed, he just offered “alternative facts.”
New York investigators are casting a wide net in their investigation of the Trump Organization. And they have been targeting long-time executives in the company to testify against their boss.
According to reports, company CFO Allen Weisselberg has been a reluctant witness so far. And investigators are now looking into former bodyguard and COO Matthew Calamari. Barbara Res, a long-time employee of Trump, says Calamari could be a compelling witness.
In the 6 years he was the senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell wielded his power with an iron fist. He laughed at the idea of bipartisanship. He placed radical right-wing judges in lifetime appointments. The Kentucky senator even blocked the senate from even having a vote on the Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland.
The New York investigators looking into the Trump Organization have continued to widen their probe. Allen Weisselberg, the long time CFO of the company has been in their cross-hairs for months.
Weisselberg, though, has reportedly been a reluctant witness against his boss. So now investigators have set their sights on COO Matthew Calamari. According to a new report, Calamari and his son are being advised to lawyer up.
Allen Weisselberg has been with the Trump Organization for a very long time. So long, in fact, that when he started Fred Trump ran the company, not Donald.
But Weisselberg is facing serious legal jeopardy in the state of New York. And with an indictment looming, it looks like he may soon have the choice of saving himself or saving Donald Trump. During a recent interview on MSNBC, Andrew Weissmann explained the sort of trouble Weisselberg is in.
Recently, former MSNBC host Chris Matthews published “This Country,” his memoir of major historical moments in America. You may have known Matthews as the host of MSNBC’s ‘Hardball’ or from his political analysis. Just over a year ago, he left the network following accusations of inappropriate flirting.
Anti-Trump Republicans like Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney would have you believe that, behind closed doors, their colleagues are against Donald Trump. In public, though, very few GOP members are wiling to speak out against the former president.
New York prosecutors have been looking into the Trump Organization for a while now. And the news has continually gotten worse for the former president.
In addition to the Trump children, the state is also looking into people who worked for the family business. The media has focused on CFO Allen Weisselberg who began his career working for Fred Trump.
Slowly but surely, the fight against COVID-19 is coming to an end. A fair amount of people in the country are now fully vaccinated and businesses are fully opening.
And now that Donald Trump is now out of office, Republicans are focused on gaslighting the public on his leadership during the pandemic. One of the ways they choose to do so is by attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci. Fauci appeared on Meet the Press Daily on Tuesday and ripped into some of his critics.
Donald Trump hit the stage again this weekend, speaking at a North Carolina GOP event. The speech featured a litany of lies including Trump’s continued claims about 2020 election fraud.
In 2016, Russia helped Trump get elected, hoping for a pliable world leader who would turn a blind eye to their abuses. According to Frank Figliuzzi, they got that and more.
At one point, it looked like Jaime Harrison could take out Lindsey Graham in South Carolina. But in the long run, Graham retained his seat and now Harrison serves Democrats as the chair of the DNC.
During a Sunday appearance on MSNBC, Harrison was asked about Joe Manchin’s lack of support for the For The People Act. He chided the West Virginia Democrat for making Mitch McConnell more powerful with his vote.
Donald Trump has given every indication that he plans on running for president again in 2024. And most Republicans have been quick to fall in line behind him.
But behind closed doors, there have to be some ambitious young Republicans who want to run for president in 2024. And according to David Jolly, the decline shown by Trump during last night’s North Carolina speech opens the door for people like Ron DeSantis and Kristi Noem.
Democrats rejoiced in January when wins by Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff won their races giving the party control of the senate. And that advantage allowed them to push through a major COVID relief bill that aided millions of Americans.
Michael Cohen was willing to do anything for his former comment, Donald Trump. The former lawyer went to jail, essentially for protecting his former client.
And now that Trump is set to face consequences for his actions, Cohen has been taking a bit of a victory lap. And during a Wednesday appearance on Ari Melber‘s show, Cohen talked about the serious legal issues Trump is facing.
Donald Trump brought a lot of new people into the Republican party. Despite losing the 2020 election, he still received the second most votes in American history.
At the same time, many have left the party because of Trump. And that includes a number of former campaign strategists. On Wednesday Nicolle Wallace talked to some of those strategists about how the GOP should move forward.
