Trump Org CFO Allen Weisselberg given immunity by prosecutors to testify

Trump Org CFO Allen Weisselberg given immunity by prosecutors to testify

As part of that probe, Cohen's offices were raided and investigators looked into his finances.

Trump's base will remain faithful to him to the bitter end, but the people who really matter are turning against him, and it doesn't bode well for his political survival.

Michael Cohen mentioned Weisselberg's name several times on a recorded phone conversation between Trump and Cohen about payment to kill a story about Trump's alleged relationship with Playboy model Karen McDougal.

Lukas Alpert, media reporter for the Wall Street Journal, talked with MSNBC's David Gura while describing the economic crisis facing Pecker's company. "I have spoken to Allen Weisselberg about how to set the whole thing up with funding".

Trump has given shifting explanations of his knowledge of the payment, most recently saying that it came out of his own pocket, which wouldn't necessarily preclude it from being a campaign violation.

Boxer Curtis Harper walks out of ring at start of fight
He walked away before a punch was even thrown. . "He defined what the most feared man in boxing means". It remains to be seen what the full ramifications of the decision will be for Harper .

Cohen, who was charged in the federal case with eight counts, including five tax fraud charges, pleaded guilty in Manhattan federal court Tuesday. Cohen refers to Weisselberg on the audio excerpt released publicly last month.

Cohen's lawyer has said his client is "more than happy" to help the collusion inquiry.

The White House has said Trump also denied having sex with Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Weisselberg was also treasurer of The Donald J. Trump Foundation, the president's nonprofit, which has been sued by the NY attorney general for alleged violations of state law.

It is unclear whether Mr Weisselberg discussed Mr Trump, who Mr Cohen claimed had directed him to make the payments - effectively accusing the U.S. president of being a co-conspirator in a crime.

Mr Trump has repeatedly denied collusion with Russian Federation, and Russia denies involvement in the 2016 election. USA intelligence agencies, and separate Mueller indictments of several Russian individuals, have concluded they did.
