All so far is being focused on miso berg. Are there others. that could be named or involved. Yes in the charging documents. There was reference to a number of other people. Both who helped weisselberg run the scheme weisselberg. He's the one person named as sort of the person who was in charge of the tax fraud but it says that he did with quote unquote others at the company and there are others who benefited from tax fraud from the charging documents. It appears of westerberg son berry. Who worked for the trump. Ice rink is one of them and a couple of other executives. None of them have been charged. There's been a mention of this guy named matthew calamari who is the trump organization c o other news outlets of written that he got some free benefits free apartment in a car. I don't know if they'll be charged or not. The weisselberg was he was both the president and the client in this situation and he was the you know he was the one who was running the scheme allegedly and he's the one who benefited from the scheme so he's a much easier target to charge than somebody downstream or who has a financial role who might have gotten these benefits and sort of comme. The case like why didn't know what i you know. I didn't know what the law was here. I was just doing what allen weisselberg told me so there hasn't been. I haven't been other folks charging in this tax scheme but it sounds like other people benefited from it. Some charges are possible down. The one sell trump is trying to convince probably doing a pretty good job trying to convince his supporters is is all a political attack. How much politics is involved here. That's a really good question that it was a da's underlying who spoke at the arraignment last week and who said you know this is not about politics. This is a clear tax fraud case.

"May start feeling them Monday Tuesday of next week, so still a lot to kind of sort out with this. Best advice right now, Start thinking about a plan. Have your emergency get ready just in case and start doing all that stuff if we do need to take action Got it. All right. Thanks very much. We'll talk to you next hour. See, then? Yep. The Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus Vans finally got something not much, but something when it comes to charging people involved with the Trump organization, although he didn't touch President Trump with a glove Um, this this one involves his CFO, a long, long time CFO. And, um, the CFO, um, is charged with what? The Friday or and let's see. Let me get the exact charges for you because I don't want to screw this thing up. Uh, charged. Let's see two Trump Organization to charged. Long time CFO Alan Wisenberg with tax fraud. That's according to an indictment until Thursday in New York. First brought by prosecutors in New York and a case since they launched an investigation nearly two years ago. Remember, they went to the Supreme Court to get the president's tax records and all that stuff. Yeah. All right. So, you know, they're trying to put pressure on these guys What they're trying to do here to talk about it or pleased to be joined again by the I D, uh, our friend of Iris and, uh, Has been for a long time. David Weinstein, former state and federal prosecutor, now criminal defense lawyer in Miami. Follow me on Twitter at David S. Weinstein or to David. Good to talk to you. Good morning, Jimmy. Good to speak with you as well. Isn't this all about trying to get trump in some some way, shape or form? It's a about holding the Trump organization accountable for the allegations about holding it had to CFO Westerberg accountable for What has happened. And, yes, it is trying to put pressure on Trump himself, and they're doing that by charging whistle Burke and making him look at some time here some some actual jail time. So this participation in these allegations? Do we have any idea how many other companies in New York City that advances going after in the same way? It appears that he's not going after any other companies at the moment. This is the only one that he's made public about it. There are other companies that have been so long charged in the past. And it's a practice that, uh, companies used unfortunately to evade taxes for the people involved. And do it often, don't they? I mean, they may take an executive the topic. They haven't said. We're going to pay for your car and they can do that. There's nothing wrong with that, except they've got to be able to claim that they did that. So so the the proper tax element is charged both to the company into the executive correct. Yes, Jimmy, and that's what it's at the heart of the allegations here. It's one thing to compensate to an executive and pay for his car's papers. Housing. Things to that's nature's, but it's the way that it's treated on the books and the way it's reported back to state taxing authorities and to the IRS that gets people in trouble. Uh, they're looking at whether or not this was, in fact income to y Silberg. And whether or not the corporation itself was actively participating in this criminal conspiracy by shielding these payments and improperly re characterizing them. Right. In fact, I'm reading this ABC article and they're saying Trump himself is his airplanes are charged to the company Well. Would be nothing wrong with that would there Again. Nothing wrong with allocating certain expenses as business expenses as long as they are truly business expenses and are not compensation that are being improperly re characterized. There's a big difference for me between avoiding taxes and evading taxes in the heart of this indictment charges here. Is that the Trump Organization and Westerberg evaded taxes and did so in a matter that improperly reported this, uh what would have been income back to about the state Taxing authority in New York, New York City and the IRS. So they so they went after Weissenberger and they said, Look, if you give us Donald Trump We won't do that. We won't charge you with this. Correct. I mean, let's be honest about that. That's the probability You haven't been part of those types of similar conversations in my prior and current career. Yes, that's you know, that's what happened. During these cases. The charging authority develops its evidence developed this information. And then presents you with a choice. Would you like to cooperate with us? If so, will reduce or or not charge. If you don't, then we're going to file these charges in It's a game of poker that's played, and it came time to call the blocks and Vance decided that he wasn't kidding and filed these charges. Right and advanced in my right that that the the, uh the attorney and the man's days office. Vance's is an ISO way out of office. Is that correct? That is that's correct. They've had some preliminary primary elections, a number of people that are running to take over and then it will be their responsibility to pick up this prosecution when he exits office towards the end of this year. Or not pick up this prosecution up to them. Well, you know, the the charges are filed. And yes, it's up to them when they're not. They're going to continue to move forward with it. Right. Hey, David, Thanks so much for your time. As always..
