"When that happened. I'm not sure anybody really knew what exactly had precipitated. That freak out from him like was he sad. That more people didn't turn out on the mall to get justice for the people who attacked the capital in his name was he said that nobody turned up. Was that what upset him. Why is he going on about the witch hunt and the prosecutorial will hold out like where did this come from. Not sure anybody quite knew what to make of that meltdown from the former president until this afternoon we got the transcript of what happened in court today in the criminal trial of his business. The trump organization. You'll recall june thirtieth trump's business. The trump organization was charged with a string of felonies along with the chief financial officer from the trump businessman. They've alan weisselberg who was charged in his individual capacity. Today was the first day that mr weisselberg and lawyers for the trump organization were back in court following the initial arraignment back after charges for i filed in june and today really should have been kind of a no news. Hearing the point of this hearing today was basically for the lawyers just to ask for more time to prepare their defense. They did ask the judge for that and they got it. The trial probably won't be until almost a year from now which is interesting but in haggling over how much time they could try to get from the judge. The lawyers in the courtroom today particularly the defense counsel for mr weisselberg made quite a bit of news which may have had the side. Effect of melting down the former presidents in that statement. Judge for yourself. Here's what happened in court today. Defense attorney quote your honor. The law clearly gives the court discretion to set emotion schedule in the interest and fairness of justice. I'm asking the court today to exercise that discretion to set in motion schedule. That one is not practically impossible for mr weisselberg to me. And to not patently unfair to his interests mr weisselberg was indicted on the eighty days ago since that time we received approximately three million pages of documents just today. We got three million more pages of documents. That's over six million pages now to review those and some orderly schedule would still require us to review twenty five to thirty thousand pages of documents every day day in and day out seven days a week. Very very difficult to imagine how we do that. It is a herculean task. Made all the more difficult by the fact that i know. Is i sit here today. More documents are being produced by various parties. We don't even know what we are shooting at. It is a moving target. Says this quote also. We have strong reason to believe there could be other indictments coming again. We are shooting at a moving target. So there's a real procedural issue. And i just asked what is the rush. Okay whether or not there's a rush. What's that he said there. At the end we have strong reason to believe there could be other indictments coming really. Why do you believe that. tell me more. That was the defense attorney for the trump organization's chief financial officer allen weisselberg speaking today in court in new york now more indictments coming really allen weisselberg as the cfo the trump organization and the trump organization itself. They're already facing multiple serious. Felony counts in this alleged tax scheme. Now weisselberg defense counsel set in court today that he has strong reason to believe more indictments coming this is just a scheduling hearing today. You're not supposed to make news like scheduling hearing but wait. There's more and the other part of news here from this. Hearing came as the prosecutor was basically trying to refute the argument from the defense counsel that there's too much information to get through that the defense is buried and paperwork so the prosecutor and the defense counsel have an exchange here that leads to another revelation prosecutor quote. There's nothing unusually complex about this case. It is a simple case of executives hiding their compensation in order to avoid tax obligations the core documents that are relevant to these charges were produced on july first at the arraignment that fended have all been in possession of those records for eighty days at this point. Join in defense counsel's request for a schedule. That's fair and reasonable. I think we differ a little bit on what that means but in response to the arguments made. I would note that allen weisselberg is no stranger to these documents. These documents are almost exclusively. The overwhelming majority records are trump organization. Records mr weisselberg has been with the trump organization for thirty five years. He's the chief financial officer and while he may not have technical access to certain of the trump organization records with respect to relevant financial records. Mr weisselberg is the boss. Mr weisselberg is also not an innocent party. Being caught up as collateral damage here is an executive who stands accused by a grand jury of multiple felonies including fraud and tax evasion. It's the people's right to proceed on our case against him and it is his obligation to abide the schedule that the court sets. And then the defense counsel there's back and forth a little bit with the judge the defense counsel jumps in your honor one additional data point the judge. Yes briefly defense counsel. Thank you when we were back. In your chambers. It was represented us by the district attorney. This package includes documents. That were found in co-conspirators basements that our tax documents the go directly to the issues. So the statement that all relevant documents were produced eighty days ago just is not accurate. There are additional relevant documents that we received sixty days ago a few weeks ago and there are more in here..

"And when these people get in power, they're protecting their own, they're protecting themselves, they're protecting their family members and they legislate accordingly. So, you know it the deck is stacked unfortunately and I'm not an accountant. I'm not a tax preparer, but when the deck is not stacked, the trumps of the world, the Allen weisselberg of the world commit crime to keep from paying their fair share. So it's either one thing or another I'm sorry, but human and training. Thanks for the $25. That's a hell of a Super Chat. He's got a question. Well, he's telling a statement that they have a person in Pennsylvania legislature wanting to do an arizona-style fraud it, why do they keep wasting taxpayer money on the on-going? Insurrection, like, why am Glenn? Why are they allowing this to continue to go on when it's not proven anything. It's just putting more money in front pocket. Exactly. It's to fundraise. And I'm sure these Pennsylvania politicians are fundraising off of their, you know, their determination to do a fraud it, you know, Pennsylvania style. So it's, it's to fundraise. They know, that's not going to change the election results, but they're doing it to fundraise. They're doing it to Curry favor with Trump's base. So, come the next election cycle in Pennsylvania, they can say, hey wage, Remember when we did an audit to, when we tried to keep Trump in office, vote for me, right? And they're doing it. I believe John to undermine confidence in the whole electoral process because that will make it even easier for them to refuse to certify. The next election that they lose. It'll make it easier for them to refuse to certify it off the winter and try to steal it. So I think there are a lot of reasons that we continue to see these products being attempted in other states isn't a crazy glint for guys. Like us back to be just a witness to all this lunacy and criminal bullshit that we're I mean good and like you know, you want to a stand-up guys on, you know, oh you grew up in Jersey. I grew up in Long Island. I mean, just like in all our lives, like I've never seen something like this. Like just just and dead. GQ pictures, like, in even in the states, even in the state senate and they're all buying into this, but why are they worshipping this fat? You know, our diaper-wearing adderal, snorting, lunatic money, and power money and power and they believe they can get more money and they can retain power if they worship along tick and that's all that matters to a lot of politicians money and power.

"They should have been paying. And so think about this thing just as a different kind of case. If i owned a restaurant and i wanted to pay my waiters under the table and i just would give them cash every week and then not report that to the irs. That'd be hard to prove because there wouldn't be records of it and you even if you if you arrested me. It would be hard to know how much money i had how much taxes i hit evaded because i didn't keep records of the cash gave out under the table. This is a different case. Allegedly the trump organization kept records. They understood that they were gonna pay allen weisselberg nine hundred forty thousand dollars every year but they worked hard to convert some of that nine hundred forty thousand into non-cash non paycheck payments and then they only paid taxes on the remainder that they paid through salary so they kept records showing they understood. This was compensation and then they also hit it from the irs. So they would. They were showing that they understood. What they were doing was wrong. But yes that makes sense to keep that separate book knowing it could turn up. It doesn't make a lot of sense. That's i think what surprise the tax law prosecutors so much that most people don't keep another set of books that show you exactly the details of their tax fraud knowing the company as well as i do. I think this is a collision of two values. In which trump had choose one over the other one of those values is not keeping records trump organization and trump particularly bitter famous for not keeping records on things. But there's also a current of cheapness right and the purpose of keeping the second set of books was to make sure that when you were giving these people payments under the table. Allegedly that you weren't giving them too much that they still weren't getting more benefits that ellen westerberg was getting paid nine hundred and forty thousand dollars a year not nine hundred forty one and so you had to keep these records to make sure that in the course this tax evasion. Alan weisselberg didn't get a little more cash than he didn't. He deserved for that. We can speaking to a large grab down. Theron seem to say well everybody do this destin. Everybody grant little here and a little there and help out with college. Tuition and an apartment. So he doesn't have to drive along way.

"I want to go to another big news item this week. And that is the trump organization and it. Cfo alan weisselberg. I being charged in tax related investigation. Tiffany what can you say about these charges. And and what can happen to the trump organization as a result so it's important to remember legally corporations of function as people and so. It's important also not to conflate the trump organization with donald trump himself so we're looking at charges against the corporation the trump organization that holds his name. And it's cfo weisselberg and what this means is that for the corporation. there could be fines. There could be mandated oversight in its financial practices. It could mean incarceration time for if the f. o. is convicted but it doesn't at this point have any criminal implications for donald trump himself but it seems that the prosecutor would likely be working to get inside information from weisselberg. Potentially some type of agreement some type of plea deal based on what evidence they have. I think donald trump is the big fish. They'd like to secure a conviction against but at this stage again important to remember that it's just the trump organization and it. Cfo who have been criminally charged with these tax related crimes. Yeah that's a really good point. So variety i mean what does this mean for former president trump or his political image his influence there are people. You know who still believed that former president trump is the president that he's just in absentia away people to put him back in the white house. You know in a culture war sometimes. Any action can be leveraged for power especially if you are not bound by facts if you are bound by quote. Alternative facts the hit that keeps on giving kellyanne conway so i do worry a little bit not that it changes anything that the investigation into the trump organization will end up bolstering some of his supporters. I agree farai and what's interesting about donald trump being back on the campaign trail that rally. He had in wellington ohio. I watched portions of it and it was difficult to watch. I have to be honest. There's no platform. There's nothing but grievances fear and anger lots of rage emanating from donald trump and his supporters. Are eating it up. It's it's a scary sight. His supporters will follow him to the ends of the earth and we saw that at his first rally back on the campaign trail recently. Yeah tiffany. I want to jump in here because let's listen to a little bit to former president trump at that rally in wellington. Right outside of cleveland ohio. And we're going to elect an amazing slate of proud. American first republicans next year america first so forever i mean. How much impact do you think that. Trump's revenge plan is going to have on the midterms. Yeah that's a phrase from politico. The idea of a revenge plan. I mean you know you do start seeing again looking at Some of the the far right media outlets you are starting to see some people who are trump est saying that trump is no longer the standard bearer for his own ideology. So it's like it's not that these supporters are becoming more centrist. But they're saying you know what someone else needs to step into his place. And i actually think that there will be. There already are a wide range of elected officials in the federal government in in the legislature. Who have very trump ideologies. Not all of them you know the marjorie retailer greens. Some that are much more ready for prime time in a traditional sense..

"The federal case against michael cohen for the payoff stormy daniels included an unnamed person called individual one prosecutors say michael cohen acted in coordination with an at the direction of individual one was clearly an obviously donald trump. In today's indictment there is someone referred to as unindicted co-conspirator number one. It is not very clear who unindicted co-conspirator number one might be. There are many possibilities and putting someone who might already be secretly cooperating with prosecutors. The indictment says from at least two thousand five. Through the date of this indictment the named defendants and others including unindicted co-conspirator number one agreed to and implemented a compensation gain with the object of enabling weisselberg to under report has income to federal authorities and thereby evade taxes and falsely claimed federal tax refunds. To which he was not entitled on or before april fifth twenty ten the trump corporation acting through its agent unindicted co conspirator number one under reported alan weisselberg taxable income for the tax year. Two thousand nine joining us. Now daniel shapiro professor of tax law at new york university law school also with us tim. O'brien senior columnist for bloomberg opinion. He is the author of the book trump nation and he already wrote the book about donald trump's businesses. Professor of you tweeted your way onto the show today. When i saw your tweet describing your reaction to these charges you said this is these are serious violations of tax law. That really have to be prosecuted. Why well it's not really a fringe benefit case. Some of the spin on the ice fixation was it's like you give a company car to someone angie. They didn't really use it for work all the time. That's not what this is. This is kind of like if someone went to his or her boss and said wanted you reduce my salary by five thousand dollars this month but give me five thousand dollars in an envelope in cash in unmarked bills. That's what this is as previous guests. Were saying there's a fixed amount of compensation he's gone to get and then it's reduced so they don't have to report it but he he gets in some cases it was cash tuition. It's like buying a a flat screen. Tv it's really just a scheme to Do sneaky off the books cash instead of reported incomes so has nothing to do really with fringe benefits. It's about it's sort of again. This is just the allegation indictment. It hasn't been proven but it's it's about straight up fraud. Keeping two sets of books. You can't allow if that happens then. Basically no one has to pay taxes anymore. Just do silly things Like have side arrangements in dual sets of books So it's really a challenge to the taxes. I don't see how prosecutors could not charge this if you run across this. Even if they aren't trying to get leverage on weisselberg run saying if you come across this not to charge it would be rather amazing. And tim o'brien. The indictment is filled with unnamed characters and references to them does the unindicted co-conspirator. And then there. There's the references to others and other executives other high level executives And so the candidates for liability here include donald trump's children obviously include donald trump himself. Who's worried tonight as they read this indictment anybody in the upper ranks of this very small organization who advised donald trump or participated in any of these scams alongside ellen. Weisselberg of the trump trump organization is has scores of. Llc's under its umbrella. I suspect the trump corporation is is is another one of these entities and typically. There weren't a lot of people top that flew chain. It was it was it was a company that existed on paper it usually included alan whilst weisselberg and some constellation of the three children so to the extent that unindicted co conspirator number one is is someone in the trump orchid corporation and that nears other. Llc's trump organization typically constructs. It's possible the children are in danger. There I think the other issue that's going will come on very soon with the weight of this indictment is is people will start to rat one another out. Possibly i think this is an organization. We've talked about this before. There's not a lot of loyalty. Everyone understands that. Trump's saves his skin before. Anyone anyone else and i think a chill probably went down the spines of of people in senior ranks at the trump organization. When they read this. I think a lot of the spin around this as being a a frivolous suit without a lot of ammunition behind it got dispelled today. This is the very early stages of this investigation and a lot of people could be crossed. Caught up in. it's crossfire. a professor shapiro into weisman. just raise. The question of what do federal prosecutors do today. When they pick up this indictment and read it and to be fair to them. The manhattan prosecutors are the very first prosecutors who've had the tax returns of donald trump's company and donald trump to study for criminal behavior. So of course they would be the first ones to find it but what they found includes a federal crime. Yes no it's kind of funny because The new york state basis for the charges that it's defrauding someone so it could be that someone who's indicted into this statute devoted you or diverted me or devoted someone else on the show instead. They there was the federal government so they find the new york state people find federal income tax fraud which is undeniable if the facts of the indictment are proven and it is kind of Puts the it's embarrassing for the feds although as you say maybe they didn't have access to. It also seems to be stuff that once you look at enough documents. It's just right there and there's no denying it again if the if the indicted is provable. so yeah. I don't see how they cannot charge on this basis and tim. That's what's so striking about. The indictment is that you can see how this case can be made a b. big so so well because it is on paper it is right there and the man responsible for it. All is sitting in the courtroom allen weisselberg. You know that's an important thing to remember about the entire suite of this case lawrence. I don't think special grand jury would have been convened and the da's office targeted a former president. If they didn't have a lot of other paperwork in their hands already that that goes to some of these other hospital crimes. We've discussed bank fraud. Tax fraud accounting fraud falsification of business records and alan weisselberg were tanned in love with donald trump for decades creating the kind of paperwork that that company sent out to banks other lenders and media to present this mirage around who trump was deposed donald trump for two days in two thousand seven and that deposition is full of his acknowledgement. That he in weisselberg were closely together on this Professor day severo and tim. O'brien thank you both for joining this discussion tonight. Really appreciate.

Operatives who in some states can go around and say you know we'll collect your absentee male bows and just turn them all in and save you. The trouble of having to go to the post officer to a dropbox and so arizona had banned this and the court's ruling really lead to some sparring between the conservatives and the liberal justices and it's only really partly about arizona. This case was mostly about the broader broader rules for voting rights and the majority the conservative majority said. Look these kinds of rules are reasonable. And you're going to have to do a lot more than show. Maybe slight disparities or slight burdens on voting to prove that something's awful and so the liberals in response said you know that's not what congress wanted when it passed the landmark voting rights act back in nineteen sixty five and what it really wanted to do was to eradicate any burdens on minority voting. And they said both arizona provision did actually harm minorities. The ruling was one of two that divided the court ideologically on its final day before summer recess in another case conservatives on the court struck down a california requirement that tax exempt charities disclosed their major donors to state regulators.

"Former president. Trump's personal lawyer rudy. Giuliani had his license to practice. Law suspended in new york this summer. Thirty five years ago this summer president. Trump's other personal lawyer roy cohn was disbarred from the practice of law altogether but there was another one in between those two. It has been almost three years now. Since trump personal lawyer. Michael cohen also lost his license to practice law when he pled guilty to multiple felonies in a scheme by which illegal contributions for made to trump's twenty sixteen presidential campaign. Those illegal contributions came in the form of hundreds of thousands of dollars that were paid out to women to stop those women from speaking publicly about them. Allegedly having affairs with the president those payments were designed to hush those women before the campaign the payments were therefore designed to benefit his presidential campaign. They were illegal payments they were in fact federal felonies. Michael cohen remains the only person who went to prison for that scheme even though he didn't benefit from those payments donald trump. Did that said federal prosecutors quite famously said in court documents michael cohen actually testified in open court that he committed those felonies in coordination with an at the direction of individual one was donald trump was of course the person who was also the beneficiary of the actions described in those felony counts and that that raise all sorts of actually still outstanding questions as to why federal prosecutors in the southern district of new york would ascribe that kind of blame to an individual who directed the commission of this felony so actually benefited from the commission of those felonies but then they closed the case without ever bringing charges against that individual. It's one thing to think that individual one president trump was saved from indictment himself there because he was president at the time and the justice department won't indict a sitting president but he's no longer president nevertheless sdn y case was closed in addition to individual one though there was also executive one described by prosecutors executive won a top executive at the trump organization who prosecutors said disguised the reimbursements to in for those hush money payments disguise them as legal expenses on the trump organizations books. Executive one is the trump organization's chief financial officer allen weisselberg prosecutors described his key role in covering up the commission of that felony by falsifying the books of that new york business. The reason why zuckerberg was apparently not the reason why was not charged in that hush money scheme was that he apparently got immunity in exchange for his testimony but again the testimony in that case was only used to lock up michael cohen individual. One an executive one both got away. These questions still about why. sdn y. Closed out that case and why michael cohen is still the only person who ever faced the music for those felonies. Even though federal prosecutors identified other people having played bigger more important roles in those felonies than he did but that was it apparently in terms of any federal case. Something maybe someday we'll figure out what happened in. Sdn why there. But tonight washington post was first to report nbc news and others have now confirmed that a grand jury in manhattan has filed criminal indictments against the trump organization and its cfo. Allen weisselberg and those indictments will be unsealed tomorrow afternoon. These are not federal charges. These are state charges under new york. Law the post is reporting that. Mr weisselberg expected to surrender tomorrow morning at the manhattan district attorney's office and then he's expected to be arraigned later in the day before state judge and a new york courtroom. The trump organization will also be a range It's hard to arraign an entity. At least it's hard to imagine that the way it works in person is that it'll be the entity will be represented in court by one of its attorneys. A person familiar with the matter. Nbc news tonight. That the indictments are expected to be unsealed at around two pm eastern time tomorrow because the indictments are sealed until then. We don't know exactly what the charges will be. There's been lots of reporting that they're the charges are expected to focus on tax related alleged felonies. The trump organization lawyers have been working overtime for days telling the media that the charges are small potatoes and politically motivated. And they can't believe prosecutors would even bother to charge piddling little crimes because everybody does this kind of stuff and of course you would expect defense lawyers to say exactly that the truth is we just will not know what the charges are until they are unsealed tomorrow afternoon. What we do know is that the state prosecutor. That's been working on this along with the new york attorney general's office that's been working on this. It's been years that they've been at work on this case and the question of whether former president donald trump personally himself ever faces charges in this case that remains open an open question. The trump organizations lawyer ron fischetti has said that what he's heard from prosecutors is that donald trump himself will not be charged in tomorrow's indictment. But that doesn't mean that he might not be charged in a subsequent indictment or as they call it in legal terms a superseding indictment now people who watch these things. Tell us that that's not unusual. It's not routine but it's not at all unusual for an initial indictment of a company like this or individuals associated with a company like this in the case of and weisberg. It's not unusual for an initial indictment to be followed by subsequent superseding indictments with additional charges. Either more charges against the original defendants or potentially more charges against additional defendants. My question is why do they do it. That way and as we're looking at the first potential legal accountability for former president trump in this case connected to reportedly alleged tax felonies committed at his business. This prospect of his potential individual criminal liability remains open because of this expectation that there might be further indictments. What is the basis for that expectation for those of us. That aren't lawyers. Should we understand that as a reasonable expectation to have in this case. Is that just wishful thinking by people who are hoping that donald trump will get indicted. Someday how should we understand. This in proper context have answers for you ahead hold that thought. It.

"Next guest has already made history in the house of representatives this year and he is going to make history again. It is a bit of history that he shares with bernie sanders. John yarmuth is the chair of the house. Budget committee senator. Sanders is the chair of the senate budget. Committee passed through their committees the single biggest budget resolution in history which became the legislative framework for president. Biden's covert relief built. And now john yarmuth and bernie sanders are going to do it again. They're going to pass another budget resolution. Which will be bigger than the first budget resolution that they passed this year and so to add to the historic nature of the second budget resolution. It will be the first time in history but the house and senate chairs. the budget. Committee's will have passed more than one budget resolution in the same year passing a budget resolution is the single most complex and difficult thing chair. A budget committee has to do after budget resolution is passed other committees of the house and senate go to work on the specific legislative changes that are only outlined in the budget resolution. It normally takes a few months for the committee's the to finish that work which they then send directly to the senate and house floors to be passed together in what is then called a budget. Reconciliation bill the reconciliation bill in bookkeeping terms reconciles the numbers that were outlined in the budget resolution with real and specific legislative changes in taxes and spending that add up to those same numbers today speaker. Nancy pelosi said once again that she expects the partisan bill to i be passed in the senate at the bipartisan bill. To i be passed in the senate sent to the house where she will. Then hold it until john yarmuth Budget resolution is ready to pass the house. What i said last week and i reiterate now is that in our in in the house of representatives that that particular version as it is is something that we would take up once we see what the budget parameters are of the budget. Bill that the senate will pass challenge facing chairman yonathan chairman. Sanders is that they have to write a budget resolution. That will get almost all of the democratic votes in the house and has to get all of the democratic votes in the senate and one of those democratic votes in the senate doesn't sound ready yet to give president biden everything. He's asking for in that bill if they think in reconciliation. I'm gonna throw caution to the wind and go to five or six trillion dollars when we can only afford one or one and a half or maybe two and what we can pay for then. I can't be there. Joining us now is democratic carson. John yarmuth of kentucky. He is the chair of the house. Budget committee the history-making chair of the budget committee chairman. mr chairman. You just you have that difficult position in the house of you could write a bill in the house. Budget resolution the house That could easily pass the house. But you know that you have to have something identical to what the senate passes in. You just heard joe. Manchin say what he believes at this stage. He's not willing to do. He's not willing to go above maybe two trillion dollars maybe three trillion dollars. The president wants to go much higher than that. What do you say to senator mansion. Well i say to him..

"The last word with lawrence o'donnell anything alerts rachel and tomorrow afternoon we will. Of course be reading every word of these indictments which should be made public sometime in the mid afternoon tomorrow and you know me. I'll be acting them out on television if fast. They're going to be up there the screen. No one's gonna miss anything important in those indictments. It will be a big revelation about exactly. Where is this case legally as of tomorrow night. That's going to be very very important stage of this and that that question of what comes after this as you were addressing with your guest earlier is where they'll be a lot of focus tomorrow night but the question is what clues will we have in those indictments. Will there be clues that are experts can tell us point to something else in the future and how serious the jeopardy is for the trump organization. I mean how the prospect that the president's business might face very serious charges that those charges might be enough to effectively or directly drive the company out of business. I mean that's an that's an existential challenging prospect for the former president. And that of course happens while potential superseding indictments looming in this case. As you were just describing. There's also i mean an ongoing criminal investigation of which he is the center in georgia. There's also i mean like all this is tomorrow. Sorta day one of a whole new saga in his life. That i think is going to make him a very unpredictable. Figure and i think is going to. I think it's going to be something that we all need to be. Very open minded about in terms of it's going to change the news on a day-to-day basis. Defended trump really officially begins. Tomorrow it will be the company trump That becomes a criminal a criminal. Defendant but you know that's what you get when you end the company after yourself and so the question becomes Any other uses of the word trump in future indictments. That will be the big question tomorrow night. Exactly exactly next lawrence like you rachel. This is actually why. I never thought he would run for president. What will happen at two pm tomorrow in manhattan is exactly why. I thought he would never ever run for president. Based on the kind of businessman. Donald trump appeared to be always appeared. To be scribe by marco rubio when he was running against donald trump as a con man based on that conman character that he so clearly seemed to be i believe donald trump's businesses and financial affairs could not survive the kind of scrutiny. Their presidential campaign would attract and so based on no inside information based solely on. How thoroughly sleazy a human being. Donald trump has always appeared to be. I thought he would never run for president because this would happen. And what will happen as a result of him. Launching a presidential campaign is now happening. Nbc news reports the manhattan attorney's office and the new york attorney general's office together have obtained indictments against the trump organization. And its cfo ellen. Weisselberg to people familiar with the matter. Tell nbc news. The charges are expected to be unsealed in court. Tomorrow in manhattan one trump representative told. Nbc news earlier today that the charges will be unsealed around two pm as nbc. News reported last week. The charges center around a scheme to pay compensation to weisselberg and possibly others off the books. By the trump organization. The washington post reports. Weisselberg is expected to surrender thursday morning at the office of manhattan attorney. Cyrus r vance junior to people familiar with the plan said he is expected to be arraigned later in the day in front of a state court. Judge the trump organization will also be arraigned represented in court. By one of its attorneys. This would not be happening. If donald trump did not bring new scrutiny to his businesses by running for president this is not a political prosecution. This is the kind of attention you get when you run for president and certainly the attention you get when you become president. This is the attention. I always thought. Donald trump's financial affairs could not possibly endure today. The brookings institution released a report from four recognized legal experts in white collar crime including the former republican justice department official donald air which concludes that quote trump is at risk of eventual indictment. Even if he is not named in that initial filing the authors wrote a fifty four page analysis of the applicable new york state law the donald trump may have violated the lawyers right we conclude based on the publicly available information that trump is at serious risk of eventual criminal. Indictment in new york state report identifies five areas in which donald trump could be charged one allegations of falsifying business records to alleged tax fraud. Three alleged insurance fraud four scheme to defraud banks and five enterprise fraud allegations in an apparent attempt to distract attention from the criminal charges. Donald trump went to the southern border. Today it did not work today. The lawyer for allen breaks former daughter-in-law jennifer weisselberg told business. Insider she is ready to testify against allen weisselberg app trial. We are very gratified to hear the re the reporting that the da's office is considering bringing criminal charges. We have been working with them and other investigators since late last year and provided investigators with a mountain of evidence about not only fringe benefits but also other potential tax issues. We will discover the indictments reveal tomorrow. What other potential tax issues could be involved and today in an interview with. msnbc's halley jackson.

So the idea was your you would keep the information about how the company actually worked among a small number of people. And then keep those people close and let two people I would have said who were the two non Trump's that. I would have said embodied that ethos two years ago would be Allen Weisselberg and Michael Cohen both of them had been on the inside for a long time in new a lot about the whatever. But the business was doing. Now Cohen is out Weisselberg is the CFO Trump organization. He is the essential person. E you could take down Trump junior Vonk oh out of that business would still run. You can't take out of he knows everything about the finances. He touched every financial part of Trump's life the business. The charity. It was all like Alan Weiss over kept the checkbook. For all those things. So if you're going to find anyone who understands the real financial underpinnings of the Trump organization Y, you know, where it's money came from. What is money was spent on Almaz will work knows all of that as he been called to testify. Here's been subpoenaed. But he's a number of committees are interested in talking to him, partly because Michael Cohen said his name over and over again, the guess I tallied up thirty times allies name was mentioned in the Cohen hearing. He's the one who knows everything. And he and he has spoken to investigators. It's not like he has taken this oath of Marta. He's not ever going to speak about the Trump organization. Weisselberg talked to southern district of New York. Prosecutors under limited immunity last year to describe the payments to my Ochoa n- as part of the stormy Daniels hush money scheme while also talked to a new York Attorney General in their investigation of the Trump foundation in which western basically admitted several this different instances with Trump foundation seems to have broken the law. So WestLB is not somebody who will go down with the ship for Trump. The question is what will he say? Now what we say publicly saying private. But if you're gonna understand Trump's business worked, you don't need to interview a hundred people in need interview, one Alan Weisselberg, the one thing that goes back to the campaign are Trump's Tetra turns and we never seen him. He's simply refuse the first president in quite a while to do. So so are we now going to see is tax returns we have to define now, we're going to see people asking for the House Ways and means has asked for them preparing to ask for them. And they there is a law from the nineteen twenties. That says that the Senate committee in the house committee that right taxes can request the tax returns of any high ranking White House official including the president. So was it means is that committee in the house? They're they're going to do it. The question is obviously Trump's on just going to hand them over what kind of legal battle result, and how long legal battle take a before. Trump's tax returns are given over one thing that people always ask you. What will we see in the if we ever get them? We send does them. Well, an accounting firm called Mazari's used to be called wiser MS ours. They're not they're kind of a team accounting company based on Long Island.

"Some of the big names that are targets of the House Judiciary committee. And I told you last week, and we've mentioned this name numerous times that the Democrats and Muller and the southern district in New York. Very interested in Allen Weisselberg Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer at the Trump organization for a long time decades and decades, in fact Weisselberg was there and worked with Trump's father. Fred trump. And they are. They're looking probably rattled his tree pretty heavily. And hoping that he's going to lead them to where they think all of the bodies are buried. So, you know, you look at the names here inside the Trump organization who the House Judiciary committee is going after. And these folks have gotten letters. You have Donald Trump junior. You've got Eric Trump. You have Alan Weisselberg as I just mentioned the Michael Cohen. Obviously, you have Ivanka's husband, Jared, Kushner, you have Corey Lewandowski, you have jaysekulow you have Paul Manafort, the National Enquirer publisher, the AM. I chief David Packer who struck a deal with federal prosecutors, Don Mcgann, the former White House attorney you've got Carter page. You have a whole picks. Former communications at the White House Jeff Sessions, Ryan's Priebus, former chief of staff and head of the RNC at one point. And also, Michael Flynn. Those are some of the big names knows vodkas not on the list haven't seen a vodka. Here. So again, as I mentioned last segment are the Democrats waiting for the Muller report to come out. And again, we're hearing the rumblings again that the Muller report that could be any day now completely imminent. That's coming out. Did the Democrats wait for the Muller report? No, they're not waiting for the report. I mean Keiichi there's put your pants back on at least wait for that report to hit going full throttle here. Nope. Can't wait not the Democrats. They're going forward. And we have this this unbridled this. This car bomb of activity from the House Judiciary committee, and this is huge. This is the largest most massive probe to date. Into President Trump's connections, his business his family the campaign the administration again, it is a it's a fire hose, it's an explosion here. So as I mentioned, the chair of the House Judiciary committee is the nad. Chairman Jerrold Nadler, who we'll just call the nad or called nad NATs, and he wants documents. He wants details from these eighty one individuals who have gotten letters apparently. And these are all folks that are inside Trump's orbit personal and professional and so what is the goal? What is the goal of this from neds? Clearly, it's it's maximum disruption its maximum damage its maximum suffering, its maximum noise. The decibel level is turned all the way up to eleven. Or the the volume switch is all the way up to eleven clearly the decibel level is going to exceed that of a Boeing seven four seven take off from runway one seven it left. And listen, the the suffering clearly is aimed at the president those that are being targeted. And clearly we we the people without a doubt not supposedly the probe is going to focus on three key areas. Obstruction of Justice public corruption and the abuse of power and the nad nad 's Jerry Nadler. Is going to be looking at everyone that was involved in the June twenty sixteen Trump Tower meeting the Trump Tower project in Moscow. The hush money that was paid to Karen McDougal, the former playboy model, and you know, she was in that catch and killed situation with the National Enquirer as well as Stephanie Clifford. Aka stormy dangles, a a fine points porn star. She is. So in a statement from nad 's from Jerrold Nadler. It accuses Trump of eve aiding quote accountability for his near daily attacks on our basic legal ethical and constitutional rules and norms. And then the Napster also said quote investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of congress and a core function of the House Judiciary committee. We have seen the damage done to our democratic institutions and the two years that the congress refused to conduct responsible oversight. Congress must provide a check on abuses of power. Oh, how how constitutionally heart warming? That is how how noble the nets? There is. Let me tell you what the total crock of crap is what it is. Now is Trump is Trump and angel? Oh, eastbound angel. What is it worthy of this full court press? I'm talking about throttles all the way we're talking about the RPM's in the red zone. The needle shaking and quaking is it worthy of all this. No. And clearly the politicizing here is out of freaking control. We knew this was going to happen. We knew that as soon as the Democrats took control of these these committees these chairmanships investigatory subpoena. We knew this was coming. But this is as hard core and his as fast as it's getting Nancy Pelosi is not going to allow at this point the impeachment games to begin and not the hunger games, but the impeachment games. So Nancy Pelosi is not going to permit this at this point. So Nadler, just like Adam Schiff, Adam Schiff for brains. They're doing everything they can without the utilization of the word hang on elite say that again without the use of the I word..

"That President Trump ordered that his aide and son-in-law Jared Kushner be given a top secret security clearance against the advice of career intelligence officials who are concerned about his finances and contact with foreigners during the election. The president has denied any involvement.

President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen wrapped up his third straight day of testimony before congress this time behind closed doors with the house intelligence committee NPR's Tim Mack reports. Congress isn't finished with him yet as Cohen less the private room where he had been grilled for more than seven hours. He told reporters he would be back for more.
