Trump’s top executive Allen Weisselberg surrenders to face charges

The Trump Organization and Mr. Allen Weisselberg have been found in connection with a tax investigation. They are expected to appear in court later Thursday.

Donald J. Trump’s long-serving chief financial officer, Allen H. Weisselberg, surrendered on Thursday to the Manhattan district attorney’s office. The Trump organization and Allen prepared to face charges in connection with a tax investigation, according to sources.

The exact charges were not yet known. Mr. Weisselberg along with his lawyer Mary E. Mulligan, walked into the Manhattan district attorney’s office about 6:20 a.m. on Thursday. He is expected to appear in court in the afternoon along with the representatives of the Trump Organization.

Mr. Weisselberg was once praised by Mr. Trump for doing “Whatever was necessary to protect the bottom line”. The charges against the Trump Organization and Mr. Allen emerged from the district Attorney’s inquiry   into the business practices of Mr. trump and his company.

Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the prosecutors in the office of the district attorney, has been examining whether Mr. Allen failed to pay taxes on valuable benefits he along with his family received from Mr. Trump. The benefits include private school tuition for at least one of his grandchildren, free apartments, and leased cars.

The prosecutors, along with lawyers from the office of the New york State attorney general, Letitia James, have investigated whether the Trump organization have failed to pay payroll taxes on what should have been taxable income.

The lawyers of Mr. Allen said in a statement that, “Mr. Weisselberg intends to plead not guilty and he will fight these charges in court.” The Trump organization also issued a statement, saying that Mr. Weisselberg was used as a “pawn in a scorched-earth attempt to harm the former president.”

These charges may affect financially to the Trump organization in the long run.
