Investigators intend to find leverage on Allen Weisselberg and force him to cooperate with the authorities, the sources of CNN said.
According to her, the state Attorney General’s office, headed by Letitia James, is engaged in checking the tax records of the Trump Organization’s financial director Allen Weisselberg. At the same time, the New York District Attorney’s Office (located in the state of the same name), under the leadership of Cyrus Vance, is investigating his role in the Trump company, as well as the personal finances of Weisselberg and his son, who is an employee of the Trump Organization.
As CNN clarifies, the investigators intend to find leverage on the company’s CFO so that he begins to cooperate with the authorities in the investigation concerning the Trump firm. At the same time, it is emphasized that Weisselberg has not yet been charged with any charges.
The day before, James reported that the investigation against the Trump Organization, which was previously exclusively administrative in nature, is now being conducted in the criminal field. The former president himself called it a continuation of the “greatest witch hunt.”
The New York State Attorney General opened an investigation into the Trump Organization last March. The company is suspected of artificially inflating the value of its assets to obtain loans. The trial was launched after the former lawyer of the former US president, Michael Cohen, made allegations that the Trump Organization resorted to this practice. New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance has conducted a similar investigation since 2019.
