Dershowitz: Charges Against Trump Organization CFO Will Be Thrown Out!


Allen Weisselberg is in a lot of trouble….or so it would seem.

Alan Dershowitz thinks that these charges against The Trump Organization’s CFO will be dropped, and that the charges are “absurd”.

Dershowitz even hinted that this may just be a ploy to get to President Trump.

I trust what he has to say on the issue, he has definitely been right before, and his track record is nothing short of impressive. If Dershowitz says these are bogus charges, I believe him.

Here’s his professional legal opinion:

Newsmax reports:

“You can’t get a city district attorney indicting somebody for failing to pay federal income taxes when the IRS hasn’t even gone after him,” Dershowitz told “Saturday Report.” “One of the charges, a major charge, is grand larceny against the United States government. That shows the extent to which they are prepared to stretch existing law and the Constitution to give them authority over federal taxes? It’s absurd.”

Weisselberg and the Trump Organization pleaded not guilty Thursday to fraud and theft charges in the first criminal case coming from a years-long investigation of former President Donald Trump and his business dealings.

Weisselberg and company lawyers appeared in a lower Manhattan courtroom Thursday afternoon for arraignment the charges filed by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. The charges that were read include grand larceny and scheme to defraud.

CBS News outlined the original charges:

A grand jury returned a 15-count indictment against the Trump Organization and Allen Weisselberg, its chief financial officer, late Wednesday evening. Prosecutors from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office detailed the alleged crimes at Thursday’s initial court appearance and in the 25-page indictment filed in state court.

The indictment alleged the company and Weisselberg orchestrated a scheme to funnel more than $1.7 million in untaxed “indirect employee compensation” to the longtime executive beginning in 2005. Prosecutors said the Trump Organization failed to properly report the payments to tax authorities.

“It was orchestrated by the most senior executives, who were financially benefiting themselves and the company, by getting secret pay raises at the expense of state and federal taxpayers,” Carey Dunne, an assistant district attorney, told the judge.
