Trump Org CFO Allen Weisselberg surrenders ahead of charges

Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg surrendered to the Manhattan district attorney's office Thursday morning ahead of expected criminal charges against him and the company in connection with alleged tax crimes, his attorney told CNN.
Weisselberg is set to be arraigned later Thursday at a lower Manhattan courthouse. Weisselberg's attorneys, Mary Mulligan and Bryan Skarlatos, said he plans to plead not guilty and "will fight these charges in court."
A Manhattan grand jury filed the indictments Wednesday, and they are set to be unsealed Thursday around 2 p.m. ET, according to two sources familiar with the matter. The precise type or number of charges they are expected to face was not immediately clear.
Though former President Donald Trump faced multiple federal and state prosecutorial inquiries during his administration, the district attorney's indictment would be the first to charge his namesake company, the Trump Organization, for conduct that occurred when he led it.
Trump himself is not expected to be charged, his attorney has said.

    1. @Joboygbp Edwards This started because you were pushing the frivolous “election fraud” hogwash. Then you moved on to a list of U.S. politicians you want locked up because you don’t like them. Then you moved on to calling the Democrats communists. What’s next?

    2. @Anonymous Sources Politicians who are crooked. And if the crooked FBI ever put half the man power into looking into them that they’ve put into Trump the convictions would be Yuge!!!!

    3. @Regulatory Affairs Hey vlad. So you joined in oct. 2020, a month before the election and you are only interested in ballots? Curiouser and curiouser. You are reported.

    4. @Anonymous Sources Don’t you know that most Communists, Socialists, and Marxists and BLM, and ANTIFA vote Democrat? I say most because there might be one or two out there that don’t. I’ve never heard of or seen any though.

  1. I don’t know this Weiselberder guy. I don’t think I’ve ever even met him. I take pictures with a lot of people. . .

    1. tRump:
      I know nothinnng!
      I never really met the GUY!
      But he and my son Donnie Jn and his mother, seemed to be very close!,
      They even had a lot of very secret meeting that I know nothing about!
      My whole Family and the criminal repuglikan party all hate ME!
      They are all trying to make me look BAD!
      Everybody knows that I am still the REAL PRESIDENT, so they can’t arrest ME!

    2. @vi_142 where I agree, if he did a crime he should have to pay, you are correct there. About creating jobs, ehh not actually accurate. If you look at a 15 year graph you will see the jobs he “created” were mainly continuing growth from the stock meltdown that happened under Bush and largely caused by a Clinton era change. These are natural ups in our economy after low points and no president deserves credit for it. But you can blame trump for how bad the economy got while he was president because it was his policies that diverted needed money to the richest possible recipients.

  2. When it comes to rich powerful leeches they “just dont have enough” to indict – atrocious injustice against everyday people

    1. @Rod Shhh they only allow the corruption of trump to be talked about, never anyone on the left. leftists get special protections and privilages.

    1. @Tammy Brothers LMAO! WOW! AREN’T YOU TRIGGERED!
      UPDATE! LATEST NEWS!
      PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT CHARGED WITH ANY CRIME. HOPEFULLY YOU CAN HANDLE THE FACT THAT HE IS NOT GOING TO PRISON AS YOU HAVE STATED AS A FACT. MSM LIES TO YOU GUYS!
      BTW…..I HATE THAT MY ALL CAPS BOTHER YOU. RIGHT NOW I CAN’T STOP, AS THE CAP LOCK KEY ISN’T WORKING AT THIS TIME.
      WHILE I WORK TO CORRECT MY CAP LOCK, YOU SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON SOME GRAMMAR AND PUNCTUATION. THAT IS ONE LONG SENTENCE YOU HAVE GOING ON.
      SINCE THERE IS ZERO DEBATE WITH REAL FACTS, I CHOOSE TO WASTE NO MORE OF MY TIME. NO NEED FOR AN EMOTIONAL WHINING RESPONSE.
      I HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT REST OF YOUR EVENING.

    2. @Tracy Rowe yet he was elected president, went to Wharton, makes liberals cry everyday, became a billionaire? Quite perplexing right?

    3. @Kees Hessels it’s up to each DA’s willingness whether to dig in legit or Illegit In this country, everything can be bought

    1. @Sunday Ske Biden and trump are both a lose lose situation to us both parties take advantage of there voters

    2. @mohamed said yeah I’ve heard that before, and there may be some truth to it but we have to stop normalizing Trump’s behaviors. It’s not normal for a guy to get caught on a phone call asking an official to find 11,780 votes and telling the official “it’s ok to say you made a mistake”. That’s not ok! Or to withhold aid from an ally in hopes of getting dirt on your opponent, only to get exposed and then say “well we eventually gave them the money so it’s not a bribe”.
      Newsflash, you still go to prison for ATTEMPTED bank robbery if you get caught doing so. It’s still a crime. Trump is a morally corrupt individual and I make this claim not based on hear say or rumors. He’s shown us who he is through actions, tweets, speeches, recordings, etc. The writing couldn’t be more clearly on the wall. Biden isn’t perfect but let’s stop comparing your runt of the mill politician to a man who’s non profit had to shut down because he funneled illegal funds through it.

  3. Ivanka’s _actual_ deposition: “Weisselberg? I don’t know him… I think he was an executive at Trump Organization”. Like father, like daughter-wife

    1. Liberal have you see what Biden is doing in the boarder ? Busses and busses full of illegal migrants coming in then being sent to a place of their choice… is that okay ?

    1. @kth. gllsp please explain how CNN headlines that he “surrendered” while they read a qoute from his lawyer saying he will fight the charges???

    2. Wake the hell up. The NYC prosecutor literally campaigned on “getting Trump” 4yrs ago. She said she would get him before even having the job. Nothing to see folks. Then, after promising the radical left & CNN she would have Trump in jail, , this all she has? If he’s so corrupt, why does it take the entire democratic party 50 million to “charge”, not him, but his cfo. At that, with something that literally every big New York company executive could be accused of doing. We’d all technically be in jail is our taxes got dissected with 1/2 the effort democrats have dissected Trumps. Yes, he’s still clean. Laughable.

    1. Why do you think Rump’s headin back out on the fundraising trial /revenge tour?? And People are Stillll willing to give this crook their hard earned $$ . Merica!

  4. “Many people are saying it’s going to be a big, beautiful jail term. The greatest jail term in the history of our country. Believe me”

    1. @sonny johnson the racist part of the population of the US BLAMES OBAMA EVERY DAMN DAY YOU TWERP!

    2. @sonny johnson The answer is no one associated with Obama or his administration went to prison. And exactly how was it Obama’s “2008 financial debacle” when he took office in 2009?

    3. @sonny johnson You said the 2008 financial debacle was “under Obama” Your words.

    4. @Anonymous Sources Obama did not cause the 2008 financial crisis . nor did he punish those who actually caused it.. that the point !!!. stay focus. Therefore Trump will not see jail time, no matter how egregious his actions

  5. If I, one of the little people, am late filing my taxes the IRS come at me with guns blazing. This shady outfit, led by one of the biggest shysters in the country who couldn’t lie straight in bed, gets charged.. “oH, iTs PoLiTiCal.” I hope they throw the damned book at them all.

    1. There is a difference. A one-time gift of courtside seats at an NBA game or a trip to Fiji is just doing business. A multimillion-dollar condo free of charge is legit trying to pay someone off the books and is prosecutable.

    1. @Michael Bristol lol tRUMP isn’t about America first -he’s about tRUMP FIRST.
      But keep telling yourself he’s for America if it makes you feel better…
      Just know its harder to face the truth the more you CHOOSE to stay in denial.

    2. @Tracy Rowe Loss of energy independence, six dollar a gallon gas, taking in the fat asses and criminals that won’t work from south America, massive inflation, lock-downs, America being sold, constitutional rights taken. Just what part of this coup is it that you are benefitting from? Or, does someone just pay you to write sht in support of this treasonous cabal…. like CNN.

  6. “If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.”
    I guess I’m not very sympathetic about this gang of multimillionaires trying to save a buck here and there? Or millions of bucks here and there?

    1. Thing is, the rich and powerful elite (like Trump) CAN do the crime because they DO get away with it and RARELY do the time.

  7. He was a loving and devoted husband and father? So was walter white but he still cooked meth.

  8. “The biggest most beautiful bankruptcy in the history of the world”

  9. He broke the law prosecute him, what does being a loving father grandfather have anything to do with anything…..I bet Al Capone was a loving grandfather father, uncle Boss etc

    1. It’s like talking to one eyed blind sheep, his b.s. has been proven time after time and still the sheep follow, obviously stupid people

    1. @Lindsay P Why are they disgusting? Compared to the Biden family who used their political influence, influence we as taxpayers gave them, and using that to make millions. But Trump used nothing from taxpayers to make wealth but hard work. How can you compare that?

    2. @Anthony Poe Anthony, I don’t understand your what about. I assume you mean what about Trump’s misadventures, which I understand. But if you really think Trump’s misadventures are anything to Hunter’s misadventures you have to be kidding me.

    3. @Shabo B trump used the money his father gave to him, cheated many, many small businesses out of paying for work they did when trump had buildings and the casino built by refusing to pay them and then using his lawyers and bankruptcy repeatedly to deny them for work they contracted for and did in good faith. trump has made most of his money not by building but by leasing his name to buildings because he had created the illusion that he was successful. U.S. banks refused to loan trump money for the last 3 decades because he was widely known for not paying his bills. Only Deutsche Bank would loan him money and that is coming out as fraudulent because the loan officer in charge of the section that loaned him money had a large financial stake in the trump organization. The only thing that bailed trump out was his salary on the apprentice and fraudulently declaring losses and using fraudulent tax schemes (all coming out not in the N.Y. cases) to avoid paying the taxes he was supposed to pay. trump did not do any hard work except having his financial people figure out schemes to avoid paying taxes and promoting a lie that he was successful at business when all the records to date show failure after failure.

    4. @jd190d I love your respnse jd: To the point we can elect a President who is evil vs a President who is a lesser evil. But in this case I feel we elected the worser evil. Because Biden and his family used their political positions(positions we pay for with our tax dollars) to gain enourmous wealth. Biden owns like 9 premier properties as a Senator, not withholding his actual financial assets all while making a poultry salary as a Senator. Trump took none of our tax dollars but is possibly guilty of manipulating the financial system for his benefit which is not illegal but what rich people do. I’m just tired of those in public office making millions via our tax dollars when we all know most of their time is being spent on them creating wealth due to their political position. Aren’t you tired of this? Pelosi made 25 million pre pandemic because she used her inside information to make millions. No Senator or Congressperson should ever make millions due to their position of which we put them into office. And Hunter is not charged? His entire laptop was given to the Justice Department yet not one single charge? The entire system is corrupt and not fair. As a conservative I want things to be fair. For every person, every race, every sexual orientation, etc. Yet, top Democrats in control of tech and media are not playing fair. Trump had us on a great course. Albeit he f’kd up some stuff he had our country moving in a good direction. Black men were less incarcerated, made more money and more options under Trump than all of Obama’s term. And Obama did nothing for the black community except give cheap health insurance, which is great, but he did nothing else really. I look forward to your reply and helping me understand where I am wrong. I am not very bright on these issues.
