On Wednesday, a Manhattan grand jury filed criminal charges against the Trump Organization and its CFO Allen Weisselberg. The indictments will remain sealed until Thursday afternoon but sources familiar with the matter said they were related to allegations of unpaid taxes on benefits for Trump Organization executives. Weisselberg will surrender himself on Thursday and is “expected to be arraigned later in the day in front of a state court judge. The Trump Organization will also be arraigned, represented in court by one of its attorneys.”
According to the Washington Post:
Trump himself is not expected to be charged this week, the people said, and no others in his orbit are expected to face imminent charges. But the indictments could mark a significant escalation in his legal problems — both by exposing his company to potential fines and by raising the pressure on Weisselberg. Prosecutors hope Weisselberg will offer testimony against Trump in exchange for lessening his own risk, according to another person familiar with the case.
