His attorney stated to CNN that Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of Trump Organization, surrendered to Manhattan District Attorney’s Office Thursday morning in advance of likely criminal charges against him. These are related to alleged tax crimes.
Weisselberg will be arraigned at a lower Manhattan courthouse on Thursday. Mary Mulligan and Bryan Skarlatos representing Weisselberg said that he intends to plead not guilty to the charges and will fight them in court.
The indictments were filed Wednesday by the Manhattan grand jury. They are due to be unsealed on Thursday at 2 p.m. Two sources familiar with the matter say ET. It was unclear what type of charges or how many they would face.
Although former President Donald Trump was subject to multiple state and federal prosecutorial investigations during his presidency, the indictment of the district attorney would be the first to accuse his namesake organization, The Trump Organization, for conduct that took place when he was its leader.
Trump is unlikely to face charges, according to his lawyer.
