New York State Attorney General Letitia James

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement regarding the criminal indictment of Trump Corporation and the Trump Payroll Corporation — together doing business as the Trump Organization — as well as Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Allen Weisselberg on multiple criminal charges:

“Today is an important marker in the ongoing criminal investigation of the Trump Organization and its CFO, Allen Weisselberg. In the indictment, we allege, among other things, financial wrongdoing whereby the Trump Organization engaged in a scheme with Mr. Weisselberg to avoid paying taxes on certain compensation. This investigation will continue, and we will follow the facts and the law wherever they may lead.”

Donald Trump

The charges relate to the alleged failure by Weisselberg to pay New York state and federal income taxes on approximately $1.7 million in compensation. This is part of an ongoing criminal investigation conducted by Attorney General James and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.

This weekend at a Florida rally, Trump Organization main man Donald Trump blasted the allegations, yet downplayed the charges while seemingly acknowledging the goings-on took place.

    At least Trump is doing something about these money hungry, power grabbers. The Government obviously doesn’t do anything. They’re all too deep in eachothers pockets.

    Trump is just another Leona Helmsley, and should be behind bars. I’m sure his slammer buddies will like his behind because he is so full of it.

    If I get a $100.00 gift certificate from my employer I have to pay taxes on that $100.00

    If I get a $500.00 dollar bonus from my employer I have to pay taxes on that $500.00

    If I go to the casino, and win big money I have to pay taxes on that money.

    If I win a car I have to pay taxes on that car.

    If I win a sweepstakes or a game show prize I have to pay taxes on that.

    What makes your Republican Cult King any better.

    He needs to pay his taxes just like all the poor and middle class do.

    You brainwashed numbskulls need to be deprogrammed.

    Remember this Republicans can WIN without Independents, and by recent polling you LOSE.

    Why the Media gives Trump and his cronies the time of day is beyond comprehension.

    You do know the dude is playing you. He will say or do whatever necessary good or bad to stay in the limelight as long as it make headlines for him.

    My advise is to stop playing his game, and going down that rabbit hole. It seems the media just keeps falling into the rabbit hole over and over again.

      I hope you have kids, and they lie to your face ten times as bad as your cult leader king does.

      Your all for what this dingaling says and does, but I bet he doesn’t even know your damn name, or care whether you go to the slammer for him or not because there will always be another idot to take your place.

          I don’t trust ANY politician, but I sure as he’ll do trust Biden more than I will EVER trust cult LEADER Trump. Anyone with a brain could see a riot coming January 6th,2021 miles away because CRYBABY’S VOTES didn’t go his way. The capitol should have had extra security that day.

            Vince Foster did kill himself and the Clintons were cleared in any wrongdoing in the Whitewater case. In case you forgot, Kenneth Starr was the Independent Counsel looking into the Whitewater case. He was a Republican – and still is. (he is a big Trump supporter). You guys just listen to the wackos were present themselves as news reporters when they are just actors playing a role.
