In the coming weeks, this nation will face some sort of strange predicament that we’ve never faced before, as a former President is likely to be bombarded with legal maladies that may or may not have any merit at all.
That’s the price you’d pay for waltzing into Washington and impeding the status quo, and that’s precisely why Donald Trump was elected in the fist place.
So, now, Trump will be examined under a microscope the likes of which we haven’t seen in the modern era.
And, even worse, there are plenty of folks in his ecosystem that might be looking for a handout as well.
Manhattan prosecutors may have found their “insider” as a grand jury considers whether charges are warranted against former President Donald Trump, according to a top prosecutor in Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.
Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official and FBI general counsel, said reports about the testimony of a senior Trump Organization official may be a game-changer for the New York-based inquiry. Trump denies any wrongdoing and in February decried what he dubbed a “new phenomenon of ‘headhunting’ prosecutors and AGs.”
“I’d like to throw out one more name, which is Jeff McConney, because I don’t think that’s gotten enough attention because last week the reports were that he went into the state grand jury, and he is the controller of the Trump Organization,” Weissmann said on Wednesday on MSNBC.
“So, again, all speculation, but clearly you’re looking for an insider. That’s why there is so much focus on Allen Weisselberg trying to get somebody who is on the inside who would know where every penny went. Well, that’s the controller as well as the CFO,” he added. “So if Jeff McConney is cooperating, that is really bad news potentially for Weisselberg and for the Trump Organization and other individuals up to and including maybe the former president.”
Trump has survived “rats” before, however with former lawyer Michael Cohen having turned on the form NYC realty mogul with a swiftness after being convicted earlier of lying on his behalf.
