Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg surrendered to Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
- “In light of the many statements that have already been made about this case, I’d like to clarify for the court briefly what this case is, and is not, about,” Assistant Manhattan District Attorney Carey Dunne said Thursday.
- “The chief financial officer himself avoided taxes on $1.7 million of his income, which hardly amounts to an incidental ‘fringe benefit’,” he continued. “And the former CEO signed, himself, many of the illegal compensation checks. To put it bluntly, this was a sweeping and audacious illegal payments scheme.”
