"So that's an awful lot of guilty verdicts. It will probably add up to 1.6 million in penalties for the Trump org. And if you say Donald Trump steals more than that from The White House on a daily basis, even now I would not disagree with you. I get it. I have been critical. This is the original Cy Vance prosecution and as the second it was turned over to Alvin Bragg, I have been critical of this in particular of the ridiculous sweetheart deal that was given to Allen weisselberg in connection where all he had to do was testify quote truthfully, other folks sort of said, well, you know, he can't testify truthfully and not implicate Donald Trump will shock her. He testified and did not implicate Donald Trump and did exactly what I predicted he would do, which is the I really abused Donald Trump's trust here and I just feel terrible about that. And you know, there is zero chance Alan weisselberg is going to be indicted for perjury in connection with that. And Alvin Bragg was making the rounds. He was on the various NBC shows, MSNBC shows last night touting this victory so yeah, that's all the bad. So if I'm getting that out of the way early, if what you want to say is, is this a real consequence? Most of that seems like no. I'm sorry, how? How is it that the organization has found guilty of a 170 things or whatever a lot of counts, but that means nothing bad for anyone. In my view, it does not mean nothing bad. Either for the Trump organization or for Donald Trump personally. So you said corporations are people, my friend, which, you know, is true with an asterisk, right? It doesn't put the Trump organ in orange jumpsuit, but it does mean that the Trump organization is a convicted felon, a multiply convicted felon, and when you apply for tries to get a job as another organization, when you apply for bank loans when you apply for

"Now on to the breaking news on weisselberg, we haven't talked as much on this. I feel like this has been more of a clean up topic and it seems as though and slash at Twitter topic, by the way, if you follow open args on Twitter, it seems like this was kind of a disappointing thing to you or something was amiss here. Why don't you clarify what happened with Allen weisselberg? Yeah, this is a massive miss for me. This is the Manhattan district attorney's investigation into the Trump board. You might recall, we talked about it on this show at the end of the year 2021 because Cy Vance was leaving on January 1st, 2022, which he did. And he was supposed to make a decision up or down before leaving that didn't happen. It got passed on to his successor Alvin Bragg, and we went through all the reasons why a democratic prosecutor would probably want the opportunity to bring a case against Donald Trump. And then there were rumors that this was sort of being left for dead. And in my view, this deal absolutely 100% confirms that Alvin Bragg is one of Lawrence lessig's chicken chip prosecutors. And here's why. Allen weisselberg is the CFO of the Trump organization. He is the guy who literally knows where the bodies are buried. He has signed off on or counter signed opposite that stupid Trump signature with his sharpie on every major fraudulent decision that Donald Trump made pre presidency, right? So that included the crazy deal in Florida where he had Mar-a-Lago by a picture of himself to satisfy an outstanding deal with the local officials in Palm Springs. I mean, just nonsense, right? This guy has been a close Trump confidant and that means willing to lie to protect Donald Trump for as long as Donald Trump has been around. So any 75. And the idea was to squeeze it, right? Let's see if the flip. And so Vance, again, somebody who's subject to a significant amount of criticism on the left as being not particularly diligent in going after folks like Trump. Vance set up a pretty good set of 15 counts against weisselberg. That are knocked down, charges for tax evasion. And they extended, you remember when this came out, it extends to weisselberg got rent free Manhattan apartment never declared and paid taxes on that. He got his kids and his grandkids into private schools, all totaled in amounted to avoiding $1.87 million in taxes. So the benefits were way larger than that. And the idea was, okay, so you've been super loyal to Trump. But this is going to be 15 years in jail, man. And maybe you'd like to flip right now. Yeah. And then things went silent. And then the deal and I have read the plea agreement. The plea agreement involves pleading guilty to those 15 charges in exchange for 5 months in prison. With time served, news outlets are reporting that as 100 days. And Rikers Island, so I had said previously, I think country club prison and Rikers is not a country club. So fair enough, he does have to go to Rikers for three months in a week. The biggest thing is it does not contain a cooperation agreement as part of the plea deal. In other words, he does not have to and he's not flipping. Cooperate with the prosecutors. What it requires him to do is testify at the October 24th trial against the Trump work. And some folks, including folks, I really, really respect Andrew weissman. You know, former chief counsel over at the FBI, super smart guy on our side. I respect him. I think he is reading. I think he's looking for a reason to read this optimistically. And I'll give you what I think is the best steel body of his position in a minute. But I want to get out the negatron board first. And that is requiring somebody to testify who is a serial liar. Is almost no requirement at all. And so folks, if well, you know, you could try them for perjury and it's like this DA didn't want to try him for 15 knock down super easy anybody you could try this case, Thomas. Oh, I can awesome. I wish you'd get on it. If you weren't going to take him. Jelly beans fall out. Right, yeah. But if you weren't going to take weisselberg to trial over 15 heavily documented tax fraud crimes. You ever got to take him to trial over perjury, right? This is a guy who's been lying for 75 years. He knows how to couch the lie, right? He's just going to say they didn't say. If they ask him any Trump questions at all, which by the way, they may not. This is a trial solely of the Trump org, and the highest ranking non Trump member, the highest ranking day to today person at Trump work is Allen weisselberg. So, you know, what he'll testify is, yes, I at the Trump organization conspired with the Trump organization to make sure that I got an apartment rent free. Did anybody else assist you in that? Well, not really that I can recall. What about Donald Trump? No, I don't even know what goes on here. Yeah, he's kind of checked out. I mean, I feel bad about that. How the hell are you going to prove? I don't know. I think he knew later on that maybe I had my hands in the cookie jar, but and I think that probably disappointed him and I'm ashamed of that, but he probably let it go in light of my years of service. I'm making that off the top of my head. The excuses you can give for giving a dishonest answer when you're not backstopped by a cooperation agreement are almost infinite. And it is virtually impossible to prove that that's perjury. How are you going to prove that Alan weisselberg didn't think that Donald Trump was disappointed in him or didn't, oh yeah, you showed me, okay, you're right. I hadn't recall that when he asked me that question the first time around, you're right. Okay. Yeah, in all of this, we've talked about perjury a lot, and it just seems like it's kind of a zero. Every time. That's what I've been saying to people on Twitter is, okay, show me perjury prosecutions show me perjury convictions from the past ten years. She can't find them. Which is going to ask you in all of this Trump stuff and everything. January 6th even. Off the top of your head, has anyone been successfully charged and found guilty of perjury in this? Not that I know of. And because all of that of all the liars and all the everything, that's a pretty convincing argument to me. And on the other hand, when you put cooperation in the agreement, that's super easy to have, right? Because that's at the subjective control of the Department of Justice. And they just have to say, oh yeah, this guy's been cooperating versus, oh yeah, no, this guy, the second he signed that deal, stopped cooperating with us. And fed us misinformation. And so we're blowing up his deal. And you see that happen all the time. That's what happened with Paul Manafort, right? Remember? Way back at the beginning, people thought, oh, Paul Manafort signed a deal. Well, the reason they took him to trial was because his deal required cooperation.

Of course she sent weisselberg as being trump for so many years probably one of his most loyal. I don't know what to say whether the call him an employee or not but he is stood by trump for all these years. How likely is it that would turn state to. I think it's very unlikely in. Oh what one thing we learned about donald trump. When he was in the white house is that there is nothing more important to him than loyalty to a fault right. I mean he wanted people loyal to him over the government in the united states over the people of the united states. So if this is the person who's his closest business associate and has been by his side for years and who donald trump helped you know. Pay take care of his apartment and put his kids through college and everything else. I have to think the bond between these two men is incredibly strong and something that maybe some of us couldn't even comprehend because we don't know what you know what they're like and so. I think it's very unusual very difficult to comprehend the idea that they would turn weisselberg against trump in this case. Although it guess it depends on what else they have they might have some really incriminating stuff on him that might send them to prison for the rest of his life and then he would have to decide. Do i want to spend the rest of my life in prison. Is the loyalty to trump worth that and that. I think we haven't seen yet. And what do we actually know that cy vance may have that could send her to prison for the rest of his life. Well it seems clear that they have a lot of evidence that weisselberg did not pay taxes on a lot of gifts that he received from president trump free housing. You know other kind of financial benefits and you can't just give people's things like that right that's income that's the kind of income and so the fact that there weren't taxes paid on that you know is a problem now we're not talking you know.

Prosecutor in Trump Criminal Probe Convenes Grand Jury to Hear Evidence, Weigh Potential Charges
"And I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning, Manhattan's district attorney has convened a grand jury to consider evidence in a criminal investigation. I could indict former President Donald Trump or other members of the Trump Organization. The grand jury will sit for six months, three days a week, looking into whether Trump lied about assets to defraud insurance companies and banks. News was first reported by The Washington Post and has not yet been confirmed by the prosecutor's office. William Merritt from member station W. And my see in New York is here to talk about it with us, Hialeah. Good morning. What does convening a grand jury tell us about where the D A. Cyrus Vance is with this case. Well, let's just say it is such an extraordinary situation. Usually the grand jury process plays out completely in secret. You never know what's happening. But as we have seen, nothing ever unfolds in the expected way, when it comes to Donald Trump and the courts, so this entire probe is played out. In partial public view, and that's in large part because Donald Trump tried to block it every step of the way, forcing prosecutors to go to court to get the records they were seeking. This probe went to the Supreme Court twice and prevailed both times. And along the way, there have been leaks and just very intense media coverage. So this special grand jury will be a panel of men and women, ordinary citizens being presented with evidence of potential wrongdoing at the Trump Organization and potentially related to Donald Trump. Cording to the Washington Post is you say the grand jury will be impaneled for six months, meaning three days a week. Now it's district Attorney Cy Vance may ask the special grand jury for an indictment. Or he may just use it to gather evidence and corral witnesses. But either way, it's a very meaningful step forward for that investigation. We know that advances office one access to former President Trump's tax records. Based on that. What? What do we know about the possible crimes that looking at here? The ones that he has named in his court filings are scheme to defraud falsification of business records, insurance fraud and criminal tax fraud on he said that it could go further than that what we know about the business practices. Underlying those possible crimes really begins with the hush money scheme to silence to women who claimed they had affairs with Trump around the 2016 campaign. You'll recall that former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen went to jail for his role in that scheme, but no one else was ever charged. From there. Vance reached further back in Trump business history following a pattern described by Michael Cohen of either understating or overstating either the value or revenues of the trump business to get bigger loans if he was talking to banks. Or small tax bills If he was talking to the government now, to be clear, both Trump the man and Trump the business are investing under investigation. This probe could result in charges against Trump or people close to him or the business

On The Media
Examining the media coverage of the Trump investigation
"Is the media midweek. Podcast i'm bob garfield and it was a tough monday morning for one guy. Been waiting on this decision since the middle of october and now the middle of february. We're finally getting this decision from the supreme court they are saying that the manhattan district attorney cy. Vance can in fact get to former president. Donald trump's tax returns. This is something that has been playing out in the courts for more than a year. Now that there is an oldie but a goodie the intriguing prospect of an allegedly rule breaking tax dodging constitution shredding president on riled prosecutors and fulton county georgia have launched a criminal investigation into former president. Trump's january phone call with the georgia secretary of state where he told secretary reference burger to quote fine. Vote lean. while new york's attorney general is investigating whether or not the trump organization misled investors by inflating assets. We should probably expect that. There will be charges filed against him that he will be indicted on. This case will probably go to trial. I think there's an excellent chance that he will be found guilty and if he is found guilty. There's an excellent chance he'll wind up in prison. Yeah not so fast. Late last year in the new york review writer lawyer and former federal prosecutor uncooked kadoorie reviewed the various arguments including his own ford. The prosecution of donald trump elsewhere he had characterized such as quote insane among his critics. One too many former prosecutors himself included represented in the commentariat to too few defense attorneys. Who know how to find holes in any complex case and three as he told brooke in december. No one is willing to say. We just can't know. I guess it's not a great way to get twitter. Followers or cable news hits but it just fundamentally true. There are lots of things we don't know and facts could change. And you know it's very rare that anyone saying that which brings us back to august. Virus vans says painter last year to door shebang as part of its investigation into president. Trump's business dealings time says. The bank complied with that subpoena. When that news broke a lot of people were strongly suggesting there might be a bank fraud case. What the manhattan. Da is looking at here is overstating the value of your assets to get loans understating the value of your assets when it comes tax time that kind of thing is straightforward textbook fraud. It's much easier for prosecutors to prove those kind of charges. Well just compare the two and then you know. He's in huge trouble. If they're not the same a bunch of people were. This is not just a bunch of people but a bunch of prominent former prosecutors with significant followings on twitter and cable news contributor gigs i was just really taken aback because i founded the fundamentally very misleading basically said. The speculation was insane. That you've done this at doj and it's simply not how fraud investigations are conducted. That is the word used in the wall street journal insane in particular about the suggestion that had been made by former acting solicitor. General under obama. And you'll cut. You'll i think it's totally possible for all of this to come out before the twenty twenty election in terms of new york's prosecutors getting this information on in acting on it and so that was really surprising to be coming from someone who is at least supposed to know better. According to convicted trump lawyer michael cohen trump inflated his assets when it was opportunities so deflated them when that was profitable. And if cohen is right. Doesn't that mean that a prosecutor could just compare one accounting book with another. Find the mismatch numbers. And you know it's over. No i mean. It's a very reasonable supposition. But when you're investing financial fraud case the fact that some documents some numbers may differ from one set to another is often. Just the start of a case you have to figure out why they differ doesn't matter why they differ who prepared them if their lawyers accountants and auditors involved. What did they have to say about. The relevant figures trump did not have a huge business. Right this is something. That i think david farrell hold at the post has been very good at illustrating for the public. Ns fairly small organization but that organization still had lawyers had an accountant. That is going to substantiate complicate any investigation if the lawyers overstepped and they can't prove that this was a conspiracy with which trump was involved. Then he's not liable that's correct. We don't even really know what trump's involvement was in the preparation of any of these figures that would be the crucial question. You'd want emails if they exist and of course he notoriously email. You'd want to know whether he had spoken to people and provided with them potentially with oral instructions now in the case of cohen. That is what he says right. That trump instructed people to falsify these figures but he's not a great witness is not a great witness at all. So you would want people to corroborate that you'd want much more than michael cohen.

"Tell you, I feel a little badly better. They went back 12 years to get things that he did 12 years ago. After former President Donald Trump expressed sympathy for his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. Several times, the Manhattan district attorney attempted to bring a pardon proof case against Manafort in New York. But the state's highest court stopped that attempted end run because of New York's tough double jeopardy law. So Manafort is now in the clear after Trump pardoned him for his conviction on federal financial crime and illegal lobbying charges. Joining me is former federal prosecutor Jennifer Rogers, who teaches at Columbia Law School. Jennifer, could you give us sort of a primer on the federal double Jeopardy Law and New York's law? Basically the double separately promises that you can't be tried twice for the same crime by the same government. So in the federal system, that means that You know if the U. S attorney told you here for bank fried, but they can't turn around and later church you again for the same thing Frog, but it doesn't apply to other governments. Similarly, under our federal system of government, the state they're all separate sovereigns as well. So the double jeopardy prohibition on charging someone twice for the same crime doesn't apply to a state charge. So all citizens are entitled to the protections of the U. S Constitution. That's kind of the floor. That's the baseline. But these are also free in their own constitution to give their own citizens or protection and New York state is a state that doesn't factor is its citizens more protection than the federal Constitution does in a whole bunch of areas but one of those areas Is in the double jeopardy contact. So in New York state if you've been charged and convicted by the says for specific conduct, you cannot be charged by the state unless an exception applies. Can you describe the charges that the Manhattan D, a Cy Vance brought and how he thought that they were different from the federal charges? Yeah, that looked really good question, because when all of this was happening, and he started to hear reporting that Cy Vance was going to bring charges is Legal observers were talking about what are the charges gonna look like? Clearly, he must have Think different the charge, right? You know, it's generally speaking mortgage fraud, bank fraud types of charges, but a lot of the sauce it maybe there were specific, you know, reporting requirements in the state that maybe she filled out some salt forms that are Olin chargeable in the state are lost of those source of state crimes books and records. Types of crimes. I don't have a federal corollary, so a lot of us thought there would be something like that. But when the charges came out, they really weren't factually distinct from the federal charges. And so it was a little bit puzzling and a lot of thought that in fact, what is that It's happening would happen, Which is that Those charges would be being too factually close to in the thing from the federal charges, resulting in rejection under the double jeopardy law. So when Vance brought those charges, as you mentioned, it was fairly clear that he was doing it because of the concern that Trump would pardon Manafort, which he did. But is there anything wrong with Vance's motivation there in bringing the charges? I don't think so. I mean the point is that if something is chargeable in the states, which bank fraud and mortgage fraud are chargeable in New York state if you have jurisdiction and venue over those senses People of the state have an interest in seeing that those charges are brought and that you if you do that crime in our state are punished for that. So it's not that there's something wrong with him trying to vindicate the interests of the citizens. Of New York state, and, you know, In fact, this notion of being charged by the feds but then getting out of the apartment was seems so problematic that the New York state legislator changed the law. Saying that that now is an exception. Like if you are charged, but then pardon federally. You now can be charged for that thing conduct by the state. That change was made too late to impact Manafort's case because the law is not retroactively applicable, so I don't think there's anything wrong. It's kind of unethical matter was bringing the charges. The problem is, they just didn't have enough of a distinct factual basis. Get through the double jeopardy law as it existed, then for Manafort, without the pardon exception. So Jennifer the New York Court of Appeals didn't issue an opinion in rejecting the Manhattan D A's appeal. But is there anything in the lower court opinions that struck you? Not really. I mean, they just rejected the notion that this was different enough. And, you know, I think the reaction of a lot of legal commentator was frustration. That dance brought a case that just wasn't strong enough. Not that people thought that he shouldn't be chargeable in the state. Given that he's now gotten off scot free on the federal side, but that do you really do have to comply with the line? Bring something that's factually distinct enough, and unfortunately, they didn't have that King. And if you don't have the keys, you shouldn't bring the thing. So I didn't see a lot of complaints about what the judges did hearme or just frustration that Vance got something that is the end of the day wasn't going to succeed because they just didn't have enough of a distinct factual pattern here. Thanks, Jennifer. That's Jennifer Rogers of Columbia Law School. Coming up next revenge of the voting machines in billion dollar lawsuits. I'm junior also, and you're listening to Bloomberg. Once you have your card.

I'll take your answer off the air assed far as do you think that that should be something that should be changed that presidents should Have the authority to pardon themselves would were first full. There is no authority at this moment. What will happen is and it's really important. You hear this? If President Trump between now and January, 20th issued apartment to himself. He has the full power to pardon his Children. But if he pardoned himself immediately, there would be a lawsuit that would go directly to the Supreme Court to challenge whether or not a president has that right. Have here enough material. I could spend the next three hours talking about a president's power to pardon himself whether he does or he doesn't I can assure you that if the president were to do such a thing, the first thing I will do is come on the air and give it to you straight exactly what the legal precedents are. But well, let's cross that bridge when we come to it, Okay? Sure. Alright, sir, I appreciate your call. I'm always happy to answer these these questions.

Supreme Court Issues Key Rulings on Trump's Finances
"On the final day of its term, the Supreme Court issued two highly anticipated rulings involving president trump's financial records. One decision clears the way for Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance to potentially view the president's taxes. The other was a mixed decision involving congressional efforts to obtain the president's personal financial documents both were sent back to lower courts for further consideration. Joining me now with more details is our legal affairs reporter Brent Kendall. So rent. The court rejected the president's efforts to block New York subpoena seeking his tax records, but issued a mixed ruling in a related case involving subpoenas from House Democrats. Can you tell us more about these rulings? And why in the congressional case? It was a mixed ruling. On the congressional case we'll start there that the court made pretty clear that it was not at all satisfied with either president trump's position. which the court said would really neuter Congress and make it harder for the legislative branch to do investigation while also being equally dissatisfied with Congress's position here and said look. Lawmakers you're under the belief that you can just get almost anything you want under the Sun, and the the you know, the president here is different. This is about his personal papers, and we really do need to give more scrutiny here to make sure that these requests are targeted and limited and these. Don't harass the president or become a really burdensome on him in some ways that case ended up as kind of a draw, and we will have significant further lower proceedings, and it's. It's hard to know at this point at the end of the day whether Congress is going to get. Any some all of these records that it is seeking the one thing we do know. It's extremely unlikely that they're going to get any of them before the election in November The vans case with a lot clearer and a lot. More of a straight forward and fairly sweeping loss for the president who argued that he was absolutely immune from having his financial information, disclosed or turned over to state prosecutors Wyle. He was in office, and the court flatly rejected that claim and basically sided with newer prosecutors and all their basic. That case isn't completely resolved. either. The president still potentially has more arguments. He can make against the subpoenas which he will certainly try to do in the lower courts, but it did remove a big roadblock for prosecutors in Manhattan who are examining whether President, trump or people close to him violated any state record keeping laws. So these separate cases, both came down and seven to two votes, and the president's appointees neal gorsuch and bright cavanaugh were in the majority. What do you make of that breakdown? While I mean it's a pretty remarkable thing and most of the big cases here right at the end of the term, the chief justice avoided five four rulings, and so for example we had some big religious freedom cases that were issued on Wednesday and have been the kinds of cases in the past. We're liberal justices, all descended and they're. The just got to the Liberals to join with the Conservatives, and what is was a pair of fairly conservative rulings in favor of religious institutions, and then flipping things around today we had the chief justice in the four liberal justices, and the chief was also bring along justices, neal gorsuch and Brett Cavanaugh, who are both trump appointees and to the majority in both of these rulings, those two didn't agree on all the same reasoning, but joined the outcomes. We ended up out of the nine justices with only two dissenters justices clarence. Thomas Samuel Alito. Tell us more about what happens next. For these two cases, what questions are now left for the lower courts? especially as we're looking ahead to the November election, even if these issues won't be resolved by then. There are a lot more issues for the lower courts in the congressional cases, basically because the Supreme Court crafted a whole new set of standards, the judges should now look out for these kinds of disputes. I mean the disputes. Themselves are pretty rare, normally congress and the White House work out their differences when Congress wants to have people testify when they want information. But now the court is basically said you lower chords take these new standards. We've articulated that we think will provide some protections to the president as well as some protections to Congress and sort out who's got the better argument here. That's going to take time. The New York case may take a little less time. The president still has some arguments available to him to contest the criminal subpoena here to his accountant's but they're more straightforward at. That courts can deal with more quickly, but even there it's going to take time, and even if he loses and the accountants turnover this information to Manhattan prosecutors. This comes in the context of a secret grand jury proceeding, and it will be many months, if ever, before details of of what prosecutors learn would become public. And the president quickly responded to these rulings on twitter. We are hearing responses. Continue to roll in. Tell me a little bit about your impressions of what he's been saying well, the president has been frustrated with a Supreme Court on several of its rulings, including one day invalidated his cancellation of the Dhaka and program and right after the ruling came out today, and he expressed clear frustration on twitter that this case would continue and express his views that this is sort of a political partisan prosecution that's designed to harass him, and he said that it was not fair to him or his administration. While the president was frustrated with the rulings today. Sivan's in New York. The prosecutor who is leading this investigation was thrilled and said this was a day really where the Supreme Court affirmed the rule of law that is applied to the president, just like everybody else. And he said now his team would get back to doing the business that had been doing of investigating this case and proceeding as it had planned to proceed, while also knowing they're still future battles ahead against president trump and his lawyers as this probe continues. France it's been a busy few weeks as supreme. Court now heads into its recess. Any final thoughts that you're leaving with well. It was a really big momentous term, even though the court ended up hearing less cases than it had planned because of corona virus, but we had these major rulings today on presidential power. We've had blockbuster rulings on religious freedom on gay rights in the workplace on the DACA immigration case. A lot at the court has tackled, and so it will take at at least a little bit of a breather now while we all sort out what's on the horizon. Wall Street Journal. Legal, affairs reporter Brent Kendall Brent thank you so much for joining me sure. Thank thank you.
