While a significant part of his business career has taken place in courtrooms, Donald Trump has been immune to law enforcement for the past 4 years. However, that protection is now over and Trump has to face the music in New York and Georgia.
It’s faster in Trump’s hometown. New York State recently announced that the case against the Trump Organization is a criminal case. And on Tuesday it was reported that Allen Weisselberg, CFO of the Trump organization, could be indicted by the summer.
During an appearance on Tuesday night on MSNBC, Neal Katyal explained why Weißelberg has no choice but to cooperate. Former White House attorney told Joy Reid, “I think the prosecutors here know something else, namely that Allen Weisselberg knows where all the keys to the kingdom are.
The former White House attorney continued:
“So most normal companies have a compliance office that deals with all of these issues. Not the Trump organization. The Trump Organization’s compliance office was basically a giant drawing of the presidential seal or something like that. So it’s really all up to Weißelberg. And if they can turn Weisselberg around, and I suspect they can because of this dynamic that Michael Cohen just revealed, this kind of prisoner’s dilemma where he has to worry that Trump might turn on him if Weisselberg doesn’t cooperate . That is what each of them has to worry about and it becomes a race for information and so I end up thinking bad news for Trump. “

Donald Trump was always ready to attack former friends when they are no longer useful. Weißelberg will soon have to make an interesting decision.
