BREAKING: Trump Organization and CFO indicted by NY Attorney General

According to a new report from NBC News “The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the New York Attorney General’s Office have obtained indictments against the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, two people familiar with the matter told NBC News on Wednesday.”

“Specific charges sought by the Manhattan district attorney and New York AG are unclear as the indictment will remain sealed until Thursday afternoon. Two lawyers for the Trump Org. said Wednesday they expected it to be charged with tax-related crimes,” the report adds.

Per the report:

The charges, handed up by a New York grand jury, are expected to be unsealed in court Thursday afternoon in Manhattan, one Trump representative told NBC News.

The charges stem from a scheme to pay compensation to Weisselberg and possibly others “off the books” by the Trump Organization.

A spokesperson for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has declined to comment on a report that indictments have already been filed against the Trump Organization and Weisselberg.

NBC News reported last week that District Attorney Cy Vance’s office was expected to charge the Trump Organization as early as this week.

The charges come amid an investigation Vance has been conducting into a variety of allegations of financial improprieties against former President Donald Trump’s company. Vance’s office had been looking into criminal conduct at the Trump Organization, court documents previously showed, such as falsifying business records, insurance fraud and tax fraud.
