Will Allen Weisselberg, Trump Organization CFO, Spill His Guts?

Bloomberg’s Tim O’Brien is one of the very few journalists who have seen former President Donald Trump’s tax returns. He told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell on Thursday night Trump “is very afraid of what’s in these documents, I think,” because they put him in severe criminal jeopardy.


While Donald J. Trump plans he re-entry into politics in an attempt to get even with Republicans that have proven disloyal using the 2022 primary process, and sounding like he intends to run for President in 2024, he’s will also be facing dozens of civil lawsuits and potentially 4 to 5 criminal indictments in 4 jurisdictions.

One of his critics, Bloomberg’s Tim O’Brien, during an interview Thursday night with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, said he…

 “Will sleep better now that Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance finally has eight years of Trump’s financial documents, from 2011 to 2019, and insisted that Donald J. Trump isn’t the only individual the tax returns will implicate if the returns reveal fraud.

O’Brien believes that Trump’s chief accountant, Allen Weisselberg, will now be forced to flip on Donald Trump, his businesses and his three oldest children….

 “The thing to really focus on here is that it’s not just the tax records that Cyrus Vance has now. He probably has reams and reams of the accountant’s work product. This is a criminal case; they’re going to need to prove criminal intent on the part of Trump, his three eldest children, Allen Weisselberg, and anyone else in the Trump Organization who’s fallen under the parameters of this investigation.”

O’Brien offered the opinion that…

“if there are emails, notes, letters and other records of communications about how they were going to handle tax liabilities that include inflating the value of buildings so they could get loans against them and then turned around and deflated the value of the buildings so they could pay lower taxes on them, and there’s a communication around that that predates any of these tax entries, that is gold for a prosecutor.”

Earlier in the day, O’Brien, during an MSNBC’s interview with Nicolle Wallace that the particular eight years of documents Vance’s team has been given could demonstrate some serious crimes were committed…

“is important because it predates Trump’s ascent into the White House, and I think helps build the narrative around the money trail and Trump’s motivations for his destructive and obscene dance with people like Vladimir Putin. It’s a shame they couldn’t go back further — think this is one of the tragic misses of Robert Mueller’s investigation, he could have gone back further, I think, than Cy Vance is able to into Trump’s finances.”

O’Brien pointed out that the Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation could potentially implicate Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump. O’Brien went further, saying…

“The investigation also targets people inside the Trump Organization who might flip on Trump if they’re exposed to criminal liability.”

O’Brien also pointed out…

“The brass ring in all of this is that if Trump has a criminal conviction, he cannot run for president again, and that’s looming over this entire thing as well.”
