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.
