Former Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Accused of Perjury in Relation to Civil Fraud Probe

Trump’s former CFO faces perjury charge in connection to civil fraud investigation

Allen Weisselberg, the former Chief Financial Officer of the Trump Organization, is currently engaged in early-stage negotiations with the Manhattan district attorney’s office, contemplating a potential guilty plea. This potential plea is linked to allegations of fraudulent testimony on Weisselberg’s part during his appearance as a witness in Trump’s civil fraud trial.

Sources familiar with the matter, as reported by The New York Times, suggest that for the negotiations to progress, Weisselberg would need to acknowledge his falsehoods on the witness stand concerning Trump’s financial matters.

He would have to admit to providing false information under oath during an interview with the New York attorney general’s office, which initiated the civil fraud case.

The reported agreement under negotiation would not necessarily require Weisselberg, who is 76 years old, to cooperate against his former employer.

Despite his involvement in a pivotal aspect of the case – a hush-money payment intended to suppress a potential sex scandal just before the 2016 election – it is anticipated that prosecutors will not summon him as a witness. Furthermore, the district attorney’s inquiry into Trump’s finances, which initially necessitated Weisselberg’s cooperation, may no longer hold the same level of priority for the prosecutors.
