Don Jr. And Eric Gave Trump Org. CFO A $200K Raise After They Discovered He Was Cooking The Books

Allen Weisselberg, the former CFO of the Trump Organization, said said under oath Friday that Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump knew he was engaging in tax fraud on behalf of the company yet gave him a $200,000 a year raise after they found out about his crimes.

The New York Post reports that Don Jr. and Eric discovered Weisselberg’s illegal actions in 2017. Specifically, he and two other top Trump Org. executives were getting perks they didn’t report as income on their taxes, but the ex-president’s sons weren’t upset by the discovery.

The sons learned of the tax cheating during a “cleanup process” the company underwent with tax auditors when Trump took office as president, Weisselberg said.

When prosecutor Susan Hoffinger asked the longtime chief financial officer if the Trump Org. demoted or punished him in light of the discovery, he said no.

“Were you in fact given a raise … that totaled approximately $200,000?” Hoffinger asked.

“Correct,” Weisselberg replied on his final day of testimony.

Weisselberg pleaded guilty in August of accepting $1.7 million worth of unreported benefits that included free rent on an expensive apartment on the Upper West Side, luxury cars, and private school tuition payments for his grandchildren.

The Trump Organization is accused of helping Weisselberg and other top managers cheat on their taxes for 15 years by falsifying reports to the government.

Today’s revelations come as Trump, his children, and his company are facing massive civil penalties in a case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James. If Trump Org. is found guilty in that case, the company could face massive financial penalties and the imposition of a economic “death penalty” that prohibit them from ever doing business in the state of New York again. Trump Org. is headquartered in the Empire State even though the failed former president now lives in Palm Beach, Florida, at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

The one-term, twice-impeached ex-president it also facing the prospect of being charged under the Espionage Act for hoarding classified documents at Mar-a-Lago in violation of federal law.

Don Jr. Prematurely Claims GOP Midterm Victory And Gets Pelted With Internet Mockery

At exactly 8:15 p.m. Tuesday night, Donald Trump Jr., the son of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump sent out a tweet that he probably wishes he hadn’t.

Bloodbath? Maybe as it applies to his old man’s planned “comeback” on the political scene, but if the returns proved anything, it’s that the majority of voters are sick and tired of Trump, his lies about the 2020 election, and his attempts to blame everyone but himself for his massive failure in the last presidential race and the midterm.

Perhaps the most crushing loss for Trump was that Democrat John Fetterman beat GOP candidate Mehmet Oz and will be the next senator from the state of Pennsylvania. That seat was previously held by Pat Toomey, who decided not to seek another term.

So where exactly is the bloodbath? A look the mockery aimed at Don Jr. on Twitter suggests it might be in the bashing he took online.

Don Jr. And Eric Demanded A Stake In Their Father’s Truth Social Company: Report

Proving the old adage that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, a new report suggests that Donald Trump Jr. and his brother, Eric, are indeed grifters just like their old man, and even demanded a stake in his Truth Social company even though they played no role in the formation of the social media site which has been plagued by financial problems since it went live in February.

Will Wilkerson, a co-founder of Truth Social, told The Washington Post that Don Jr. and Eric asked for a “handout” even though they deserved nothing.

“They were coming in and asking for a handout. They had no bearing in this company … and they were taking equity away from hard-working individuals.”

Wilkerson was one of the very first Trump Media & Technology Group employees and later served as vice president of operations until Thursday when he was forced off the board by the ex-president. Why? Because he failed to be sufficiently obedient to Trump when it came to issues such as making sure that former first lady Melania Trump was also given stock in the company, even if that meant having to take stock from someone who actually worked at the company.

Now, however, Wilkerson is cooperating the Securities and Exchange Commission, which suspects possibly illegal behavior by the former president and others who are associated with Truth Social.

Included among the evidence Wilkerson has handed over to investigators is a computer log he kept while he worked for Trump Media. That log includes mentions of Don Jr.:

“Trump Jr. ‘needs a bedtime story and some love.'”

Not only does the apple not fall far from the tree, neither does the grifting.

Donald Trump Jr. Joe Biden WTF?!

Don Jr. Proclaims He Has ‘Two Words’ For Viewers: ‘Joe Biden Is A Freaking Idiot’

It’s one thing to be a pompous ass with a moronic opinion. But it’s quite another to not even know how to count.

That’s the lesson Donald Trump Jr. decided to give us today, and he did it while trying to make fun of someone else for the very same thing he did.

Speaking on Friday, President Joe Biden remarked:

“Let me start off with two words: Made in America.”

OK, so the president made a mistake. But let’s recall that his predecessor (who just so happens to be Junior’s daddy) once called Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, Tim Apple.

As he often does, Trump tried to lie his way out of the embarrassment, posting a incredibly lame excuse on Twitter:

At a recent round table meeting of business executives, & long after formally introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim + Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time & words. The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 11, 2019

And yet Don Jr. (a.k.a. Traitor Tot) thought he’d make a video and try to troll Biden, despite the fact that his trolling almost always comes back to bite him right on his rump.

In the video, Junior proudly proclaims, “I’ve got two words for you. Two words for you: Joe Biden is a freakin idiot.”

Maybe Junior is trying to mock Biden by using more words than he needed, but Twitter users weren’t impressed, and they quickly used the video to lay a major social media beatdown on the ex-president’s clueless spawn.

So who exactly is the freaking moron? Go look in the mirror, Junior, provided you’re not using the mirror for something else.

New Evidence Suggests Don Jr. Was Part Of The 2020 Election Coup With Roger Stone

According to phone records the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 Capitol insurrection has in its possession, it seems that Donald Trump Jr., son of failed, one-term former president Donald Trump, was involved in a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election with the help of longtime Trump confidant/convicted felon Roger Stone.

That’s one of the explosive revelations from a new book written by former GOP congressman Denver Riggleman entitled The Breach.

The Guardian reports:

Stone was one of more than 20 “high-priority targets” but the panel faced an uphill battle identifying his contacts after he refused to voluntarily allow the select committee to obtain his call detail records, forcing investigators to work backwards through associates, the book says.

The select committee was able to construct a detailed map of Stone’s contacts after obtaining the call detail records of Kristin Davis, also known as the Manhattan Madam, who was with Stone at the Willard hotel in Washington DC on the day before and the day of the Capitol attack.

[…]

The number for Stone also connected to a number of prominent Republicans that the January 6 committee believes played different roles in Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, including the Texas attorney general, Ken Paxton, and Arthur Schwartz, an aide to Donald Trump Jr, Trump’s eldest son.

So an aide to Don Jr. was allegedly in contact with Roger Stone as the latter attempted to plan events on Jan. 6 that would result in Congress refusing to certify the 2020 electoral votes and instead sending the election back to the states long enough for alternate electors to be appointed who would cast their ballots for Trump instead of Biden, despite what voters had told them to do. That is the very definition of a soft coup, and it almost happened.

But the larger implication is that the ex-president’s son was intimately involved in efforts to illegally steal an election for his father, meaning he has serious legal liability at the federal level.

The book also has serious implications for the former president, who is already facing charges in Georgia, New York, and in federal court for his hoarding of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

The good news for Donald and his son is that they might be able to request they serve their time at the same federal penitentiary.
