According to a source familiar, lawyers representing the Trump Organization will meet with Manhattan district attorneys’ office prosecutors Monday in an attempt to persuade them to drop the charges against the company.
This meeting comes after a conference that was held online late last week, where prosecutors informed the company that it will likely be facing criminal prosecution for benefits it provided to employees. An attorney for the company told CNN Friday that other sources had also reported on the matter.
Ron Fischetti, an attorney for Trump Organization, stated to CNN that prosecutors have not yet shown interest in hearing arguments that the prosecution is not justified. The decision on charges could be made as soon as next week.
Prosecutors will also be expected to accuse Allen Weisselberg of receiving benefits. CNN reported that Weisselberg had recently told prosecutors that he wouldn’t cooperate with the investigation.
At this time, there is no indication that Trump’s former president or his family members will be charged.
