Dershowitz: 'Greatest Risk' to Trump Is From NY Prosecutors, Not Mueller Probe

Trump Organization CFO granted immunity in Cohen investigation

Weisselberg has been a Trump confidant who started working for his family in the early 1970s.

Separately, the Manhattan district attorney has launched a preliminary investigation into whether the Trump Organization falsified business records relating to payments made to Cohen, a source confirmed to CBS news.

Giuliani told the Post that he counseled against the move at least until the end of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation - but Fox News later reported that Giuliani said that Trump had not broached the idea of a pardon for Manafort specifically.

Prosecutors said that Mr Cohen had been reimbursed for his role in the payments through a $35,000 monthly retainer arranged by executives at the Trump Organisation.

And as we have repeatedly pointed out, the real rigged election in 2016 was the one that resulted in Hillary Clinton becoming the Democratic presidential nominee.

Additional key players, including Trump's long-time CFO, Allen Weisselberg, and American Media head David J. Pecker, have also begun to cooperate with Mueller. WaPo cited "a person familiar with Cohen's thinking" who said that Cohen was interested in talking about Trump's advance knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting with Mueller.

After President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to multiple charges, Ms O'Connor, an accomplished journalist who works in the United States, tweeted, "Just taking a beat to remember the day 3 yrs ago when Michael Cohen told me he'd "ruin my life and take everything I have" because I wrote about Macy's dumping his then-employer's sweatshop suit brand".

And federal law treats a loan to a campaign as a contribution, subject to contribution limits and disclosure requirements. The problem is this interferes with both Trump's ability to hire "only the best people" and get the loyalty he demands.

Since the passing, President Donald Trump tweeted out his condolences from his official account. He was a leader to senators from both parties, a touchstone on foreign and domestic issues .

The "Trust" refers to the entity that Trump set up after the election to hold his assets.

Cohen mentioned Weisselberg on a secret recording that Cohen made in September 2016 and which was aired on CNN last month. He isn't even mentioned in numerous biographies of his boss.

Money and loyalty also drove Cohen to make guilty pleas this past week in a spinoff from the swirling investigations battering the Trump White House.

From his first job helping with the books for Trump's father, Fred, in 1973, the Pace University graduate has gotten his fingers into almost every aspect of the family business - vetting deals, arranging financing, auditing, managing cash - eventually rising to oversee all finances of its far-flung operations.

Friends claim it was Cohen's father, a surgeon, who persuaded his son to flip, arguing that he had not survived the Holocaust to have his name besmirched by Trump.

Weisselberg comes off in depositions in that case and others over the years as unobtrusive, loyal and undemanding. "I think it would be a big mistake", Duncan, 54, told Reuters after an on-camera interview on Friday, adding that she believed it would be a mistake from both a moral and a political perspective.
