Manhattan DA Considering Criminal Charges Against Trump Organization: NY Times

Allen Weisselberg, the Chief Financial Officer of the Trump Organization, will testify in a probe involving the US President's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organisation's chief financial officer, was said to have met prosecutors weeks ago after a grand jury summons.

On Tuesday, Cohen pleaded guilty to eight felonies, including two counts related to hush money to women who alleged affairs with Trump.

Two executives at American Media Inc, which publishes the National Enquirer, a tabloid reportedly involved in making the payments, have also been granted immunity in the investigation.

The US president's comments, delivered by tweet, amount to the strongest criticism yet of North Korea from Mr Trump since he met the country's leader Kim Jong-un in June.

Cohen mentioned Weisselberg on a secret recording the Trump attorney made in September 2016 and which was aired on CNN last month. When Mr Trump stepped away from the company after his election victory, he handed control to his two sons and Mr Weisselberg.

Mr Weisselberg, who has been at Mr Trump's side for four decades, is also treasurer of the Trump Foundation, the family charity under investigation for misuse of...

Weisselberg then sent the invoice to another Trump Organization executive via e-mail directing him to "Please pay from the Trust".




Both women claimed affairs with Mr Trump, which he has denied, and were paid for their silence.

The company paid Cohen more than double what he claimed he ultimately spent for Trump's campaign.

A former National Enquirer bureau chief says that there is a trove of stories about President Donald Trump in a safe - and he revealed what kind of stories are being locked away from the public. "That must just amaze him", said D'Antonio, author of "Never Enough, Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success".

Cohen was prosecuted by the U.S. attorney's office for the southern district of NY, acting on a referral by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The White House official insisted that West Wing staffers continue to keep their heads down and do their jobs. A third team of prosecutors, in the Manhattan district attorney's office, said Thursday that they were beginning an investigation of whether the reimbursements for the hush payments broke state law.

Positive headlines for Trump, a Republican, were matched by negative stories about his opponents, including Hillary Clinton, a Democrat: an Enquirer front page from 2015 said "Hillary: 6 Months to Live" and accompanied the headline with a picture of an unsmiling Clinton with bags under her eyes.

On "Fox & Friends" on Friday, Penn said there is a clear double standard in how Trump and his associates have been investigated compared to Clinton over her private email server and handling of classified information.
