More Charges May Be Coming for Trump Organization As Manhattan DA Convenes New Grand Jury

A new report in The Washington Post sats that the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is convening a new grand jury related to its probe of the Trump Organization, opening up the possibility for new charges against the company.

The Washington Post reports that the new grand jury was seated last week and is “expected to meet three days a week over six months,” where it will hear evidence of potential criminal wrongdoing at the Trump Organization. An earlier grand jury convened by the Manhattan DA charged Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg with committing tax fraud.

The WaPo’s sources say that the grand jury “was expected to examine Donald Trump’s company valued its assets,” which the paper says “appears to be a separate issue than the one described in indictments from the first grand jury, which has dealt with allegations that Weisselberg and other Trump executives evaded taxes on their pay by systematically hiding some of their compensation from the IRS.”

Former Trump fixer Michael Cohen testified before Congress in 2019 that Trump would deliberately manipulate the values of his assets to score more favorable tax treatments.
