Now that legal experts have had several hours to look over and dissect the massive indictment filed in a Manhattan court earlier today against the Trump Organization and Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg, we have a much better picture of exactly what sort of case Manhattan District Attorney has against the former president’s company, and it looks like an airtight one.
But there remains one mystery that has been lighting up social media since Thursday afternoon: Who exactly is the “unindicted co-conspirator #1” that’s mentioned on page 13 of the indictment?
Obviously, the unnamed co-conspirator could be Donald Trump, meaning that he will also be indicted as chairman and CEO of the Trump Organization, but is it really that simple?
Kyle Griffin, a senior producer for “The Last Word” on MSNBC set off the guessing when he posted this:
Here’s some of what followed on Twitter:
The most likely person, however, is Jeff McConney, controller of the Trump Organization who testified before a grand jury empaneled by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. a little over a month ago.
If McConney is the unindicted person, that means he’s cooperating with Vance’s office, which is terrifying news for Trump because McConney likely knows as much about the inner workings of the Trump Organization, meaning that the Donald is officially screwed.
If, however, the mystery person turns out to be a member of Trump’s immediate family, that would be the sweetest irony of all.
