Trump’s longtime CFO, whose testimony could send him to prison, suggests he had a don’t ask, don’t tell policy on breaking the law


An unearthed deposition suggests he knows the Trump Organization has broken the law. As you’ve probably heard by now, at present Donald Trump is drowning in criminal investigations and is possibly legally screwed. Aside from the whopping 29 lawsuits he is facing — which is no small thing to set aside! — he is the subject of at least three criminal investigations, the most worrisome one, from the standpoint of staying out of prison, being the Manhattan district attorney’s. For months now, Cyrus Vance Jr. has been looking into possible tax, banking, and insurance fraud, and in February scored a major victory when the Supreme Court cleared the way for him to get his hands on Trump‘s tax returns, which the ex-president responded to like a man who knows he’s broken the law and is about to get caught. Another seemingly crucial development appeared to occur earlier this month, when the former daughter-in-law of longtime Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg turned over a trove of documents to Vance‘s office that could contain the kind of information that might get Weisselberg, who has described himself as the “eyes and ears” of the Trump Organization, to flip and testify against his boss.
