Now that indictments against the Trump Organization have already been unsealed and Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg has been charged with numerous crimes, the question remains: Who will be the first in Donald Trump’s inner circle to flip on the failed, one-term former president and cooperate with prosecutors?
Weisselberg would seem to be the most likely candidate, but he’s said to be slavishly loyal to his boss, whom he has worked for almost half a century.
Don Jr, Eric, Ivanka? Possibly, but they’re bound to their father by blood, and as the old saying goes, blood is thicker than water. Also, they depend on daddy for a living, because none of them have ever held a real job.
That leaves Jared Kushner, Trump’s former “secretary of everything,” who is reportedly in legal jeopardy, too, and also facing financial problems with his own real estate holdings. Would Jared become a cooperating witness for the prosecution?
Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen hinted recently that the reason none of the legal filings have had Jared’s name attached to them is because he’s already in the fold with the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr.:
Jared isn’t a Trump, and he must know that a long prison sentence would not exactly be a good thing for him. Fragile, doll-like men don’t tend to fare well behind bars.
Others agreed with Cohen:
Imagine the look on Ivanka’s face when she discovers her husband has just sold daddy down the river. Then again, Jared and Ivanka may bump into each other as they make a mad dash to Cy Vance’s office.
