Trump’s team ‘far more worried’ about Southern District of New York investigation than Mueller: report
Members of President Donald Trump’s team believe his legal problems may not end with the Mueller probe, Axios reports.
While Trump has steadfastly maintained that Russia collusion was the only topic to be investigated by the special prosecutor, the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg made an immunity deal with federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York and no one knows what information he gave up.
While Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani told Axios he was not worried, he also said he had not talked to the former CFO.
“I guess I don’t know for sure,” Giuliani said. “Somebody could’ve misled me, something new could’ve come up. Maybe say ‘reasonably confident’. That would be a better way of phrasing it.”
Axios reports that “people have told us they’re far more worried about the Cohen investigation in New York than they are about whatever Mueller comes up with.”
