According to a new report published by Business Insider, the former daughter-in-law of ex-President Donald Trump’s longtime CFO is cooperating with investigators looking into the Trump Organization’s finances.
The report cites an attorney representing Jennifer Weisselberg, the former daughter-in-law of the Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg, who told the publication “she’s cooperating with prosecutors conducting an inquiry into Donald Trump’s finances and ‘refuses to be silenced.'”
“Jennifer Weisselberg is committed to speaking the truth, no matter how difficult that may be,’ her attorney, Duncan Levin, told Insider in a statement. “She will continue to cooperate fully with the various law enforcement agencies that are investigating her ex-husband’s family and the very powerful interests they represent,” he added.
Allen Weisselberg is one of Trump’s longest-serving business partners. Experts have speculated that, because he knows everything about the Trump Organization’s accounting, he would be one of the biggest possible threats to Trump if he flipped on him in a criminal investigation.
While Weisselberg does not appear to have divulged any secrets yet, Trump’s former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen has suggested he may ultimately cooperate to save himself and his family.
