Trump CFO Allen Weisselberg Pleads Guilty To Tax Scheme, Will Testify Against Trump Org

• Zero Hedge

Trump Org CFO Allen Weisselberg has pleaded guilty to 15 felonies - admitting that he conspired with other Trump Organization executives to carry out a tax-avoidance scheme connected to lavish corporate benefits - including lease payments for a luxury car, rent for a Manhattan apartment and private tuition for his grandchildren.

As part of the deal, he has agreed to testify against the Trump Organization in an October trial - however he has refused to implicate Donald Trump in any wrongdoing. The company is accused of helping Weisselberg and other executives dodge taxes by failing to accurately report their full compensation to the IRS.
