Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, has been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday. Weisselberg, the Journal reported, is considered a witness in the federal criminal investigation into longtime Trump attorneyand his business dealings.
Oh, boy! Following the news of Cohen turning on him like a rat in drain, this new development ought to make Comrade Stupid feel like he just got knee’ed in the ‘nads!
Weisselberg has worked for the Trump family for decades. Now, his position as the organization’s CFO means he has access to the most detailed financial data and inner workings of Mr. Trump’s business dealings. Despite his close role to the Trumps, Weisselberg has kept a relatively low profile through the years.
Not any more! Look, if the guy who has prepared all the tax returns for decades is testifying under oath in front of a Federal Grand Jury, who knows what might come out? I believe that they do not get to have a lawyer present to shout “Objection!” to questions that might, you know, not be immediately related to the matter at hand.
