Trump Org Guilty of Tax Fraud and Other Charges After 3-Year Manhattan DA Probe

HeadlineDec 07, 2022

The Trump Organization was found guilty on all 17 counts, including criminal tax fraud, conspiracy and falsifying business records. The damning verdict comes after a three-year investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. The convictions centered on the Trump Organization providing lavish perks to its executives — including luxury apartments, cars and cash bonuses — without paying taxes on any of these over a 15-year period. Former Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg pleaded guilty in August to financial crimes, and prosecutors say Trump signed off on the tax fraud, though the former president was not charged in the case. Trump and his children are still facing a separate civil fraud suit by New York Attorney General Letitia James.
