WATCH: Former Trump Org Exec Says Former Guy ‘Deserves’ Prison

The walls are closing in on the Trump Organization.

With the announcement that the Manhattan DA’s office has formally contacted Trump’s attorneys to let them know that charges could be brought this week, those who once were close with the Trump family are now its most dangerous opponents. Aside from former fixer Michael Cohen, there’s another player who could be incredibly damaging to the defense once the case against the organization goes to trial.

New York state and local prosecutors are digging through CFO Allen Weisselberg’s finances as they build a potential case against his boss, and Barbara Res, a former Trump Organization executive, knows exactly what they might find. Res has suggested that Trump’s apparent generosity toward Weisselberg and his family was a way to exert control over him.

“Trump doesn’t do things for nothing, ever,” Res said. “He always has to have something over somebody.”

Res appeared on CNN on Sunday to speak about the latest developments in the case against the Trump Organization. Watch her segment with Jim Acosta, below.
