There is a lot of speculation as to who will be the person to bring down Donald Trump? Besieged on all sides, Trump watchers are watching frantically watching new information this week about Michael Flynn’s 19 interviews with regard to three separate investigations, Michael Cohen’s latest admissions and revelations regarding Trump Tower Moscow and the soon to be revealed depth of Manafort’s crimes and lies. The media is laser-focused on each new shiny object while forgetting the man who will be the most damaging to Donald Trump. The man that knows it all.
For a few days back in July, the man made headlines when he testified before a Federal Grand Jury in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York in the Michael Cohen investigation. In late August, the man was granted immunity by Federal prosecutors. While media speculation is rampant about what Flynn, Cohen, and Manafort might know. This man knows everything about the Trump Organization, the Trump Foundation, FEC violations, payoffs to Playmates and Porn Stars. He can document any and all of Trump’s trips to Moscow. He has the still unseen Trump tax returns. Somehow forgotten in the constantly moving media frenzy is Allen Weisselberg, longtime account for Trump and involved in his business operations since the 1970s.
Allen’s name first came up in the Cohen tapes describing the $150,000 payoff to Playmate Karen MacDougal to keep her story of an affair with Trump out of the papers. Weisselberg is one of the three people in charge of the Trump Foundation which is facing civil and potential criminal charges in New York related to fraud and self-pay. Trump himself hasn’t contributed to his own foundation in decades, although he has allowed it to buy portraits of himself to hang in his golf courses.
More seriously, Weisselberg knows all about Trump’s mafia ties, fraudulent business practices, failure to pay contractors, money laundering and more. Red flags should have gone up when Allen was granted immunity. While we haven’t heard a peep out of Weisselberg since. We can be certain the 72-year-old accountant has no desire to spend his final days in jail. We can also be sure Robert Mueller now knows everything Weisselberg does about how Trump does business.
We can watch with great anticipation, every tidbit involving Flynn, Manafort, and Cohen (the free $50 million condo to Putin was a good one). But it’s the testimony of his accountant, Allen Weisselberg, that will do Trump in!
