1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: New York State targets Trump Organization CFO on its way to taking Donald Trump down



And so it begins. For the past year New York State has had a widely documented grand jury in the process of indicting Donald Trump for financial crimes. Now that Trump has lost the election, we’ve been waiting for New York to start putting information out there making clear to Trump that it has him cornered. Well, here we go.


   


Bloomberg is reporting today that New York is putting the squeeze on Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg and his family, targeting them for alleged tax fraud, and seemingly making a point of leaking it to the media. The implication seems clear enough: New York is looking to force Weisselberg to flip on the Trump family.


This is how these kinds of prosecutions tend to work, moving up the ladder one rung at a time. It’s not at all surprising to see New York going after Weisselberg on its way to Trump. What’s notable here is the timing. Trump just lost the election, he now has a clear cut timeframe for when he’ll be out of office and thus subject to arrest, and now New York is suddenly letting it be known that it’s picking off Trump’s CFO. This is only going to escalate from here.
