Jacob Wohl, who was once a teenage hedge fund manager later became one of Donald Trump’s youngest supporters. The young man did his best to help the president whether it was by visiting hipster coffee shops or by holding a bizarre press conference where he accused Robert Mueller of sexual assault.
Despite having a father who is an attorney and commentator on Fox News, Wohl’s antics as a trader have now caught the eye of law enforcement. The Daily Beast is reporting that there is a felony arrest warrant out against the now 21 year-old.
The arrest warrant names Wohl and Robert Johnson who co-founded Montgomery Assets. Johnson and Wohl stand accused of unlawfully selling securities centers.
The complaint reads, “In 2016 Jacob Wohl and Matthew Johnson represented themselves as members of a company called Montgomery Assets. On July 27, 2016 through August 27, 2016 Jacob Wohl and Matthew Johnson offered for sale unqualified securities in violation of California Corporations Code 25110 which has a three year statute of limitations and must be tolled by the issuance of an arrest warrant.”
Wohl, who was formerly a prolific supporter of President Trump on Twitter was kicked off of the platform back in February of 2019. The ban came after Wohl freely admitted that he planned on creating a number of fake accounts to spread disinformation about Democrats.
In April of this year, Wohl and sometimes collaborator, Jack Burkman were accused of attempting to frame Democratic presidential hopeful, Pete Buttigieg.
Neither of the men named in the suit have responded to requests for comments.
