Manhattan DA Has An ‘Insider’ At The Trump Organization: Report

For months now, we’ve seen reports that prosecutors in the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. have been trying to get Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, to flip on Donald Trump and tell what he knows to investigators.

But what if Vance already has an insider that can provide just as much evidence as Weisselberg and has already appeared before a grand jury that may be handing down more indictments in the coming months?

That’s exactly what Andrew Weissman, the top prosecutor in the Mueller investigation, believes has happened.

Appearing on MSNBC’s “The Beat” recently, Weissmann told host Ari Melber:

“I’d like to throw out one more name, which is Jeff McConney, because I don’t think that’s gotten enough attention because last week the reports were that he went into the state grand jury and he is the controller of the Trump Organization So, again, all speculation, but clearly you’re looking for an insider. That’s why there is so much focus on Allen Weisselberg trying to get somebody who is on the inside who would know where every penny went. Well, that’s the controller as well as the CFO. So if Jeff McConney is cooperating, that is really bad news potentially for Weisselberg and for the Trump Organization and other individuals up to and including the former president.”

McConney has access to the same financial information as Weisselberg, Weissmann noted, meaning that there’s a very good chance he’s already spilled his guts to Vance’s prosecutors to keep from being charged with various crimes.

Weissmann then added:

“In other words, Manhattan may have found their insider, because it would be unusual to put somebody like McConney into the state grand jury, where he would be given immunity as soon as he testifies automatically, if they didn’t think that he had something useful to provide.”

It certainly makes perfect sense that prosecutors might have gone around Weisselberg and subpoenaed McConney first, if only to see if what he says matches up with Weisselberg’s testimony when he appears before the Manhattan grand jury.

No wonder Trump is reportedly sweating over what’s happening with Vance’s investigation. It appears the DA is gathering all the evidence and leaving no stone unturned. That alone tells you the future doesn’t look bright for the Donald.
