One of the worst weeks the Trump administration has weathered to date has ended with a disastrous development for the incompetent conman. Savvy forecast predicts a thunderous tweetstorm building on the horizon.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Allen Wisselberg, the Chief Financial Officer of the Trump Organization, has been granted immunity by the federal prosecutors investigating longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen.
Cohen pleaded guilty earlier this week to numerous charges include campaign finance violations. He has stated that it was Trump himself who directed him to the commit the crimes.
Earlier this year, Wisselberg testified in front of a grand jury as part of the investigation into Cohen. He was also mentioned by name on the recording released last month in which Cohen discussed hush money for a playboy model with Trump.
Today’s revelation comes on the heels of yesterday’s news that David Pecker, the CEO of the company that publishes the pro-Trump rag National Enquirer has also been granted immunity for his cooperation with the Cohen probe.
Pecker was involved in Trump and Cohen’s secretive plans to use hush money to pay off women who allegedly had extramarital affairs with Trump. The bribes were expressly intended to influence the 2016 election. The Enquirer is also said to have been involved with catch-and-kill practices, in which they bought the rights to stories unfavorable to Trump in order to quash them.
While it’s still unclear what Pecker and Wisselberg have delivered to prosecutors, the fact that each of their testimonies was valuable enough to secure immunity bodes ill for Trump. Whatever secrets they’ve spilled are sure to cause legal shockwaves for the administration in coming weeks.
