As the Manhattan district attorney’s office plows ahead in its investigation of the twice-impeached one-term president’s business dealings, prosecutors seem to have their sights set on Trump Organization chief financial officer: Allen Weisselberg, who is reportedly considering to “flip” and testify against Trump.
“He’s not going to let his boys go to prison,” Michael Cohen told The New Yorker. “And I don’t think he wants to spend his golden years in a correctional institution, either.”
Weisselberg, 73, has worked closely alongside Trump for decades, and legal experts and others close to the case agree he would make a star witness.
“Allen Weisselberg knows where all the bodies are buried,” said the president’s niece Mary Trump.
Weisselberg started out as a bookkeeper for Trump’s father after answering a newspaper ad, and by the mid-1980s was doing books for the future president — and his sons, Barry and Jack Weisselberg, are also linked to the Trump Organization and potentially part of the case.
Barry has managed the cash-only Wollman ice-skating rink and carrousel in Central Park, which have been run for New York City by the Trump Organization.
Jack Weisselberg works for Ladder Capital, which loaned more than $270 million to Trump and is one of the Trump Organization’s largest lenders and is connected to four building projects — including the 40 Wall Street property that has been examined by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, according to the report.
