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:
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:
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.
