New legal troubles for Donald Trump: the Trump Organization and its Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg are accused of tax crimes, according to reports Wall Street Journal.
These are the first formalized accusations since the investigation into the organization of the former US President began three years ago, but he is not directly accused of crimes. However, it appears that further investigations into the account of Trump, also with reference to the payments that would be paid to some women who claimed to have had sexual relations with him.
Weisselberg, 73, began his career working alongside his father Donald Trump, Fred, in the early 1970s and for more than two decades has headed the financial management of Trump Organization.
He and his son Barry were reported to have gotten rich compensation from the Trump Organization, which according to the indictment were not properly reported.
Jennifer Weisselberg, Barry’s ex-wife, collaborated with investigators by providing elements including those relating to the apartment owned by Trump in which they lived for five years, without paying anything.
Ronald WhistlesTrump’s attorney called the case “embarrassing,” adding that “in over 50 years of career, I had never seen the prosecutor’s office pick on a company for the compensation and benefits given to one of its employees. As Shakespeare would say, much ado about nothing. I can’t believe I have to deal with such a case ”.
