At Trump Org. fraud trial, defense rests and deflects blame


The defense has rested its case as the tax fraud trial against the Trump organization reaches its final stages. Closing arguments are slated for later this week in the criminal tax fraud trial against Donald Trump's real estate empire. Defense lawyers say prosecutors are seeking to punish the entire company for one person's scheme to avoid personal income taxes, on company perks like apartments and luxury cars. Finance chief Alan weisselberg has already pleaded guilty to taking $1.7 million in unreported compensation and he testified against the Trump organization. But defense lawyers blame weisselberg and longtime accountant Donald bender. Suggesting bander should bear the blame for not catching the fraud. There are no allegations against the former president nor members of his family. I'm Jackie Quinn
