Former Mueller prosecutor says flipping Trump CFO is key to criminal case against Trump

Even though former President Donald Trump has been out of office for several months, he has a number of political enemies that are still working overtime on a number of investigations that mostly center around his finances, taxes and business dealings.

According to the Washington Examiner, Andrew Weissmann, a former prosecutor who worked under former special counsel Robert Mueller, revealed recently that the best way to hamstring the 45th president in a criminal case is to convince former Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg to flip on him.

Notably, Weismann was one of the key players involved in securing convictions against former Trump insiders like Paul Manafort and Rick Gates in the early days of Trump’s first and only term in the White House.

Though Trump still faces a number of pending investigations, most of which will likely not go very far, one being run by District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. seems to hold the most promise, according to what Weissmann said recently in an interview with New York Magazine.

“I think a really important piece is going to be flipping the CFO, Weisselberg,” Weissmann said. “I think that is going to just be so critical in terms of being able to deal with Trump’s defense of, ‘I didn’t know,’ or ‘Weisselberg was signing off on things, so I had no criminal intent. Who am I to second-guess accounting and legal issues?'”

Weissmann went on to express confidence that a case against the former president could be made if insiders like Weisselberg turn on his former boss.

Moves to make that happen are seemingly already underway, as just last week Weisselberg’s former daughter-in-law was subpoenaed for a variety of different financial records for her ex-husband, which would be Weisselberg’s son. Specific requests were made for records related to dealings with the Trump Organization.

Last week, the Trump Organization hired high-powered New York criminal defense attorney Ronald Fischetti as the company faces additional investigations, including one being led by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Only time will tell if Trump’s political enemies in New York are able to flip the right people and make the right moves to bring a criminal case against the former president, but one thing is clear: They don’t appear to be letting up.

  1. Because they feel threatened by Trump but not Biden and Harris. Also, Biden knows he stole the election so his time is limited as Potus. They need to let by gones be by gones.

  4. Just saw the tape of Biden in a veteran cemetery, he stopped looked at the tombstone, then just kept on walking, no salute or hand over his heart. Also, at the end of his speeches, he doesn’t say
    “God bless America”. Just sayin

  5. President Trump is no longer in the White house so you dumb [email protected]#%%^&cks need to drop it already and leave him alone. Stop trying to dig up sht on our President he is going to be back in the White house weather you like it or not

  6. God is in control and knows exactly what is going on and why and when the time comes [ Gods time ] , those that wanted to do evil toward Trump and the American people by way of control, will have to face God and the sins they brought upon themselves.

  7. These Anti Americans in NY and Calif are pushing and poking the grizzly and the grizzly is getting tired of this beware.
    The greatest president this country has ever seen. donated his entire salary to charities, no president has ever done this all while enduring such hatred from mindless, clueless libertards that want to destroy their own freedom. Now that is totally insane.

  8. November “Elections” were forced the Corporation way (speak “Democrat” way) like the political way from 1928 to 33 in Germany with a MONEY CABAL.
    Now, for the short time the so-called “Democrat” Cartel has its dirty hands in the power pot, “Justice” and “Courts” are forced into the same direction.
    It’s all a repetition of the slimy manipulations that got us into WWII – and Biden/Obama had already prepared the scenario for WWIII in Ukraine!
    BEWARE OF EVERY STEP YOU CAN SEE -as there are 100s you can’t- AND PUT YOUR LEG FORWARD TO MAKE THEM FALL!

  9. Don’t these Democrat clown circus fools have something else to do besides let their jealousy of Trump over take every second of their evil hateful miserable lives.these people have become so fixed on Trump they eat ,breathe, I bet never sleep thinking of what he will do next.and they know 2022, 2024 is going to knock them all out of power.its coming and I can’t wait.i hate Biden,Harris ,obama,Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell and the rest of the circus clowns. They are all worthless,evil,demons.they will pay dearly for all the evil they have done,the ones helping them with their evil deeds.you reap what you sow.

  10. What hatred and envious people we have become! Where are their thankfulness. In destroying people’s lives when they do good to others? They would rather see our country destroyed and all the rest of us and continue on their rotten road to “hell” trying to destroy a true American that gave up all his salary as president and causing a loss in his business so he could help save us and all we had to put up with the Democrats that we paid big bucks to was impeachment and the blame him for the Jan. 6 deal when if it all came down to it the root cause was their BLM and Antifa that dressed up like Trumpsters and attacked the Capital with their beloved CNN reporter paying BLM $35K to video this event and then the Democrats using the video to try to impeach Trump. Enough of these evil people. What was John S charge? Bet it was not as much as Republicans that had no record on the books against them before? Another question is why can Obama get all his stuff locked in vault and no one can see it and yet they dig up Trumps? Isn’t there a law about how far they go back? I guess with Trump there is no law with the scums and they are the terrorist along with BLM and Antifa that are destroying our nation and we poor people have no say today.

  11. Let’s see the investigations into Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Eric Holder, Adam Schiff and the list goes ON AND ON.
    I really think right now we should especially be looking at Joe BRIBEM for crime’s against humanity, look at our Southern Border!!!! IT’S a mess because of good old Joe, Come on Man!!!!!!!!
    Sick of the witch hunts against Trump, HE was our best President ever, the one for the AMERICAN people!!!!!

  12. These children called demos need to GROW. Take your toys and go home. Leave the grown ups like TRUMP to run DC. My God I am so sick of hearing
    this crap, I am so sick of the witch and all of her cronies, going after Trump again and again. GO HOME. Take the idiot BIDEN with you, and don’t forget the garbage that is not even in this country legally, the obuma trash can.

  13. This never-ending vendetta against President Trump is stupid, but the democrats are so afraid of him that they are still trying to keep him from running again and the Biden administration is doing all it can to destroy what President Trump did that way they can keep on trying to destroy this nation

  14. Weissmann is a notable liar, a prosecutor that has been rebuked by judges as a disgrace to his profession, and a total weasel of a human. He should be in jail!

  15. Linda my words exactly. He is the only one that has given a Sh** about the people of this country and now the POS’s in the WH and Congress are doing everything they can to ruin it and the best President we have had in a very long time.

  16. john, AMEN !!!!! You are exactly correct about the scum in the WH and Congress and of course the others as well.

  17. Since you deleted my post which says practically whatever the rest here express. I tell you. Go F- k yourselves and NEVER mail me another one of your articles. Why do you keep a Reply space if you dont allow us to use it? Liars and HYPOCRITES! Take me off your mailig list NOW!
    mainstreet gazette: its over ERASE MY NAME from your worthless site.!!!! And the cowards that you are you will certainly delete this post also. Look. I dont need you. so erase me from your subscription.!

  18. Get off his back
    What goes around , comes back around, something like that,

    Trump is not going away, this nonsense is allowing idiot PBIDEN to wreck havoc on our country.
    fight , join us or get the F out of the way.

  19. I sincerely hope that President Trumps former colleagues stay true to the President! He did more for this Country and was not afraid of China or the WHO he built a magnificent wall which is partly laying on the ground and until Biden puts it up we are in serious trouble on our southern border! Our economy and jobs were the best it had Ever been! I support President Trump and there are a lot of people who want him back for a second term!

  20. They are just hell-bent on finding or manufacturing something to pin on President Trump. It doesn’t even have to be truth — just something they can roll out and say enough times that the public might starting believing. Trump hasn’t done anything they haven’t also done or that they have even done worse but just not yet be caught. People in high places do not get there without some “iffy” things in their background. Lets dig into the financial areas of many of the others like: Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, Mule Mouth Harris (listen to her bray) and Piggy Face Pelosi.

  21. JEEEZ !! When is enough is enough !!! You people hounded the President through his entire Presidency and he still did a good job !!! The Democraps tried to impeach him TWICE, Nancy Piglosi tripped over her skirts trying to find any kind of dirt on him (the whole time he performed his duties WITHOUT pay) and even after he has left office your still trying to ruin him and discredit his every move !!! YOU PEOPLE (and I use the term PEOPLE VERY loosely) are A BUNCH OF SICKENING POND SCUM !!! Get over yourselves and grow the F—ING UP !!!!!!

    1. Ha Ha Ha! A good Job???????
      Tax Fraud,
      Ie upon Lie, The Trump-Pandemic..killing us off! A good Job? Are you from Russia????

  22. So Weissmann LIES and wants to get some DEMOCRATIC SLUG to WEAR TO IT …
    LOW LIFE P.O.S…
    Just like ALL DEMOCRATS..
    LIE ! LIE! LIE!

      1. Another Demo witch hunt–If they are hungry for a conviction I got just the guy to put in your sights–you guessed it Hunter Biden-easy conviction
        on gun charges, taxes, money laundering. While you are at it Wisemannn could take a shot at Big Guy JOE— Hunter would crack like an Acme egg
        with just a little pressure. Just think you could make history. Next on your list could be Kamala Harris the real go-getter who sits in the V-P chair.

        1. And not just hunter biden, there was so much un-covered about the muslim congress person omar, Marriage FRAUD, Tax FRAUD, citizenship FRAUD using somebody else’s last name, giving campaign funds to present husband and who knows what else could be un-covered – yeah, the dims never look at their own, like also swalwell being used by a chinese spy, feinstein having had a chinese spy as driver….I mean THAT party is just REEKING of criminals, not to forget j. biden’s corruption, voter FRAUD, as he told us himself that he has a big, inclusive voter FRAUD organization = probably one of a very FEW times he told the TRUTH…….

          1. seems, Democrats, cover for each other and have become very wealthy by doing so…which democrats in Washington, were asked to show all tax records.. ??? ..Yet they all have become very rich, ONE’S husband has made millions $$$$.. is there possibly some inside trading there.? no democrat has been investigated like the TRUMP FAMILY the devil people own the media a cabal..like the mafia. LEFT WING political in congress, in USA seats of power pretend to be Americans, caring for the USA interest..when all they are really doing is selling us all out..making millions. Most SEEM TO BE crooks,,liars and thieves. or stupid.. This is only my opinion. DISGUSTED by whats happening to our country..however I know what time it is, and it is written, READ YOUR BIBLE BEFORE IT BECOMES UNLAWFUL TO OWN ONE.

    1. You know there is real reasons for digging into Biden and son and they completely that they completely ignore. They are so set on keeping a witch hunt on Trump while Biden and son have real criminal acts that they ignore. So interesting.

    2. Like Karen says”lies,lie, and more lies from Democrats “Weismann was the prosecutor in the Enron trials read “ license to lie “ by Sidney Powell.

  23. Trump must have them really scared that he’ll take back the white house to go thru so much trouble. Once again, it’s a witch hunt and hopefully will end with the same results as in the past.

    1. You Call Going after this Known and Recorded Biggest Liar This Government Has Ever Seen! A witch Hunt! Funny way of calling things! He is a Witch!

  24. I pray the former TRUMP confident IN NOT FOOLED into flipping on PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!!!!!! GOD IS IN COMPLETE CONTROL, AAAMEN!!!!!!!!

    1. The only reason this is happening is because Obama Hillary Biden Harris and Polosi are terrified Trump will win 2024 and destroy them and the entire Democrat Party.

      1. Dennis I agree but right now they have the power and money and both go to their heads like helium!! 😂😂😂they will do anything they can but they are forgetting that there is another 4 years of the PUPPET ADMINISTRATION!! By then they may pull their heads out of their butts!

      2. Andrew Weissmann HOLDS THE WORLD RECORD
        for having his prosecutions OVERTURNED by a
        Higher Court!
        This Clown should be in jail!
        Look up his record and than tell him to shut his
        PIE-HOLE!

    2. when they say flip, they mean: do their evil deeds, live their evil ways, most likely for the love of money… God and man both have power and authority over all demons, wizards Satan, evil, etc. The best is GOD is the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY. Evil can win a few battles but God wins… at war. Currently we are at war inside our own borders and have been for decades. ‘We the People’ are at war with many different kinds of evil and we each need to take a stand, right where we are, or lose this once great nation. Anybody up for it or would ya rather play a round of golf or watch a ball game? How’s that workin for ‘we the people’, or does that matter? WE can be in complete control, if we ask GOD to help get us there. But we have to stand up first! ASk through prayer, then God WILL help us… got it? He needs us too…

    3. Wow you pray to god that that someone will not tell the truth about trumps lies and corruption. Arent lies and corruptions sins? If so you are not a good christian yourself. No wonder so many people have left the republican party

      1. You,… Marie Says: I think we know which Marie you are, one with the Biggest Yapping Hole, and this is all can say? This is what I say for you, and 75 Million Americans. “MARIE, MARIE, YOU SUCK. AND, SUCK, AND SUCK MUCH MORE, you have no room in our page, Go to tweeter and Dump you CRAP, if you haven’t done it yet.

    4. I think Trump should press charges against the ones who are trying to take him to court just because he is Donald Trump! They are courrupt and maybe they should actually go after Biden and his criminal son for all the crimes they both committed! I want to know why they are trying to charge Trump while ignoring two criminals like Biden and his son !

      1. Ha Ha Ha! Trump…The Biggest Criminal To Ever Land in OUR White House!
        Liar,Theif,Cheater,TX Fraud,Bankruptcies galore,Mean,Cruel,Ugly Man in and Out!🤮🤮🤡🤡🤮🤮 Hang Him!!!!!!!

      2. Because they feel threatened by Trump but not Biden and Harris. Also, Biden knows he stole the election so his time is limited as Potus. They need to let by gones be by gones.

    5. Ha Ha Ha! I pray He Tells Us the a truth on Trump!!! Go Man Go!
