Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

Trump Organization CFO Surrenders After Grand Jury Indictment

HeadlineJul 01, 2021

The chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, Allen Weisselberg, surrendered to authorities early this morning. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is expected to file charges today against him and the Trump Organization after indictments by a grand jury. Weisselberg has worked for Donald Trump and his family for nearly 50 years. The Wall Street Journal reports the charges are related to the evading of taxes on fringe benefits such as cars, apartments and private school tuition. Many legal experts are speculating prosecutors targeted Weisselberg with the hope he will flip and help investigators in other ongoing probes into the former president’s company.
