Cristina Laila reported on the case earlier.
The Trump Organization last summer was hit with criminal charges by crooked Manhattan DA Cy Vance’s office.
The case was tied to tax-related conduct amid claims Trump Organization employees illegally ‘received tax-free perks such as apartments and car leases.’
These types of cases are almost never pursued, but the witch hunt of Trump and everyone connected to him never ends.
Last July the corrupt DA in Manhattan frog-marched the Trump Organization’s Chief Financial Officer, Allen Weisselberg into a New York court to be arraigned on bogus tax charges.
Weisselberg was cuffed and forced to wear a face mask as he entered the court last July.
Just the News reported:
Former Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg pleaded guilty Thursday in a Manhattan court to charges related to tax fraud – as part of a deal that will require him to testify in a case about former President Donald Trump’s real estate company’s business practices.
Prosecutors accused Weisselberg, 75, of being paid more than $1.7 million “off the books” over the years by Trump’s company to avoid taxes.
Weisselberg, who pleaded guilty to all 15 counts, is the only person to face criminal charges until this point in the Manhattan district attorney’s probe of the Trump organization’s business practices.
Officials expected him to plead guilty earlier this week as part of the plea deal.
Judge Juan Manuel Merchan agreed to sentence Weisselberg to five months in jail followed by five years of probation along with a $2 million fine, The Associated Press reported.
