More Indictments Are Coming For Team Trump, Predicts CFO Allen Weisselberg’s Attorney

Allen Weisselberg, formerly the Chief Financial Officer of the Trump Organization, made a court appearance Monday morning in relation to his indictment on allegations of a long-running scheme to dodge tax laws. The appearance was mostly uneventful, but Weisselberg’s lawyer did confirm what has long been suspected: those on the inside also expect more indictments to come.

Weisselberg and the Trump Organization were both indicted at the end of June, and the ongoing investigation since has been widely seen as an indication that there will be more indictments. In fact, Richard Signorelli, former Assistant U.S. Attorney at the SDNY, says he’s confident the investigation will continue with Donald Trump and his three oldest children as its ultimate target.

Law & Crime reporter Adam Klasfeld, reporting from Weisselberg’s Monday morning court appearance, shared a comment from Weisselberg’s attorney confirming that he, too, expects that this won’t be the end of this case, or the indictments.

This puts Weisselberg’s trial off well into next year, but that doesn’t mean the wait for more indictments will be that long. Trump’s former attorney and fixer, Michael Cohen, has predicted that the ex-president will face charges by the end of the year, and that his successor as personal attorney to Trump, Rudy Giuliani, will also face prosecution.

Cohen has said that he’s spoken with investigators multiple times, and indicated that he’s sharing everything he knows about Donald Trump and his business practices — and Cohen has said previously that Trump uses deceptive and illegal practices to evade taxes.
