WATCH: David Cay Johnston Predicts Trump and his Kids Will be Hit With Racketeering Charges

On Monday, it was revealed that accounting firm Mazars would no longer vouch for statements from the Trump Organization. The firm had initially sent Trump a letter about the decision on February 9th. Many think that the announcement portends even more trouble for the former President and his family. On Tuesday morning, David Cay Johnston predicted racketeering charges for Trump and his adult children during an appearance on CNN Tuesday morning.

Host John Berman asked the founder of Raw Story, “What happens if Mazars cooperates with investigators? Which, by all accounts, it does seem that they are.”

Johnston answered, “Well, Donald Bender, the Mazars accountant who prepares Trump’s tax returns testified before the Manhattan grand jury, and New York has this very unusual law, if you testify before the grand jury, you are granted immunity. That’s not true at the federal level and in other states. So, he no longer is in concern personally for anything he may have done, from the Manhattan prosecutors.”

Berman followed by asking what was next. Johnston responded:

“Well, the civil case — the civil matter by Letitia James — is going to result in a civil suit making numerous charges of falsification of documents, false claims, and obtaining benefits as a result. The Manhattan grand jury is eventually going to indict Donald Trump. They got 5 million pages of documents, John, they have to go through every one of them before they can finish their work.”

But Donald Trump will be indicted on a state racketeering charge, I’m confident of that. And perhaps in Westchester County, by Mimi Rocah, the new D.A. there and in Fulton County, Georgia, by Fani Willis, looking into voter fraud and now has a grand jury just for the purpose of investigating Trump’s effort to interfere with the Georgia vote count.”
