For months now, New York prosecutors have treated their investigation into the Trump Organization like an investigation into organized crime. And like high profile mob case, investigators are trying to get lower level soldiers to flip on the boss.
Speaking to The Daily Beast, psychologist Mary Trump, who has been a vocal critic of her extended family and wrote the book Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, said that she believes Ivanka Trump will turn on her father and is “much less likely to be loyal” than Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization‘s chief financial officer charged with 15 felony counts for evading $1.76 million in taxes over 15 years.
Today was a bad day for the Trump Organization. This morning, Allen Weisselberg, the CFO of the company turned himself into authorities. And New York prosecutors are hoping that the long-time money man will eventually flip on Donald Trump.
Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer, has officially surrendered to the Manhattan district attorney’s office ahead of the expected criminal indictment against him and the company in connection with financial crimes. He will be arraigned later today.
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.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office is expected to charge the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg with tax-related crimes on Thursday, according to people familiar with the matter who spoke with The Wall Street Journal.
Few people understand what makes Donald Trump tick more than Barbara Res. Res was a pioneer in the New York business world. In the 1970’s and 80’s she became an Executive Vice President in the Trump Organization.
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.
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.
Donald Trump would like to act as if he’s facing no legal trouble and that he will be president against come 2024. But the truth of the matter is that his legal problems are very real and the walls are closing in in New York state.
Donald Trump has tried his hand at a number of different businesses. There was Trump University which was sued for defrauding the students who enrolled. There were also failed ventures like Trump Wine, Trump Water and Trump Steaks.
Thanks to a ban from Twitter, Americans are hearing so much less from Donald Trump these days. The former president seems to occupy most of his days playing golf and preparing for his upcoming court cases.
Most hospitality businesses had an incredibly difficult year in 2020 and the Trump Washington DC hotel was no exception. The hotel struggled to book guests with the COVID-10 pandemic raging.
And the hotel is also having trouble due to Donald Trump being voted out of office. CNN‘s Brian Todd recently reported, “It wasn’t that long ago the Trump International Hotel was buzzing, but tonight there are serious questions about its future. With Donald Trump out of office, there now seems to be little to attract guests to his gilded hotel.”
For the last four years, Donald Trump has had nearly everything he wanted. The former businessman has immeasurable power. He had immunity from all his looming court cases. And he could play golf whenever he wanted to on the people’s dime.
Donald Trump has been unhinged his entire presidency. Since the lost the presidency in November, though, he has become even more unhinged.
And all his crazy behavior and comments came to a head last week when a mob of his supporters stormed the Capitol. And there will be consequences for his actions.
Democrats, Republicans, and the White House announced a deal in the early hours of Wednesday morning meant to give much-needed relief to American workers and businesses across the country affected by the economic downturns created by the coronavirus global pandemic.
Last week House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass) sent a letter to the IRS Commissioner demanding six years of Donald Trump’s tax returns. This started a huge legal and political fight in Washington, with both sides prematurely claiming victory.
New York Attorney General Letitia (Trish) James promised after she was elected in November that she would “use every area of the law” to investigate President Donald Trump. She won in a landslide, primarily because the theme of her campaign was “Get Trump.”
Former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen testified under oath yesterday that he believes President Donald Trump committed insurance fraud and tax fraud. And after that bombshell he went one step further and actually gave up the names of the Trump Organization executives who were involved in and would have information about such illegal schemes.
