Not Even Hiding It Anymore: Potential Trump Witness “Neutralized”

Democrats can breathe a sigh of relief. A potential witness that might have theoretically (gasp) helped Trump in the Stormy Daniels case has been, per Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, “neutralized.”  

Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization’s former chief financial officer, has been safely eliminated from a possible pool of Trump witnesses by being sentenced to jail time on Rikers Island, starting on April 15.  

The date coincidentally happens to be Trump’s first day of the Stormy Daniels trial. 

Weisselberg has been found guilty of lying under oath in a civil lawsuit against Donald Trump. He provided false testimony on three occasions during the trial, including during depositions and court testimony.  

This isn’t Weisselberg’s first time facing jail. He previously spent 100 days in Rikers Island after being convicted of various tax crimes in a separate case linked to a broader investigation into Trump’s business practices. The perjury charges against Weisselberg were part of the fraud case targeting the Trump Organization. In February, New York Justice Arthur Engoron ruled that Trump and his co-defendants had “illegally” inflated property values to secure more favorable financing terms. 

The former CFO has agreed to admit guilt to two felony charges linked to false statements he provided concerning his awareness of the dimensions of Trump’s triplex apartment in Manhattan during a deposition with New York Attorney General Letitia James in 2020. James initiated a civil fraud lawsuit against the former president, alleging that he inflated the worth of his assets in financial documents used for obtaining loans and negotiating agreements. 

Now, he will once again eat the cafeteria food at Rikers Island. 

Glenn Kirschner, a former assistant U.S. attorney and host of the YouTube show Justice Matters, said that Weisselberg would never be called as a witness for the prosecution in the hush money trial because he never agreed to testify “truthfully” about Trump. However, the defense might snatch him up as a witness despite the contentious relationship between Trump and Weisselberg. 

The greatest fear for prosecutors is that Weisselberg might confirm that his former boss knew nothing about the payment arrangements for Daniels. During a recent segment on his show, Kirschner said Weisselberg was convicted “first and foremost because he committed more crimes…but frankly, equally important, he’s being prosecuted so he will be neutralized as a defense witness in Donald Trump’s upcoming criminal trial.” 

 But Weisselberg was in the scandal up to his elbows. 

In January 2017, Weisselberg, alongside then-Trump attorney Michael Cohen, struck a deal. As per prosecutors, Weisselberg guided Cohen on settling with Daniels before the 2016 presidential election. The payment was intended to ensure Daniels remained silent about her alleged affair with Donald Trump.  

Weisselberg facilitated monthly payments totaling $420,000 to reimburse Cohen for the Daniels payment. His involvement has been a significant aspect of the ongoing legal inquiries concerning the Trump Organization.  

Deep from a jail cell at the Federal Correctional Institution Terminal Island in San Pedro, California, disgraced Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti shared his viewpoint on the hush-money case. Avenatti argues that the entire case is “stale” and relies on a “legally weak theory.” He points out that the events occurred roughly eight years ago and that pursuing them now in a New York state court is misguided. Avenatti suggests that potentially depriving tens of millions of Americans of their presidential choice based on this case is unwise. 

Avenatti highlights Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer, as a crucial witness in the case. He believes Cohen’s testimony could be problematic, potentially leading to a “disastrous” outcome. Prosecutors allege that Trump reimbursed Cohen for payments to Daniels, falsely labeling them as legal fees, potentially violating both New York state and federal campaign finance laws. 

Most compellingly, Avenatti asserts that Trump won’t receive a fair trial in New York, echoing arguments made by Trump himself. 

Democrats are stacking the deck in the face of case delays and judges who refuse to play along with their legal persecution of Trump. They’ve secured the perfect arena for a one-sided battle, New York City, and ensured a corrupt judge was hearing the case. Nothing is left to do except gag orders that keep the public unaware of the judge’s connections to Biden, ensure that testimony that would help Trump is not allowed, and eliminate the possibility of anyone defending Trump during the trial. 

This is justice, Biden style.
