President Donald Trump’s former fixer and personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, dropped several bombshells about the president’s alleged crimes during his Congressional testimony on Wednesday.
A report by The Daily Beast picked apart Cohen’s testimony and exposed the one Trump exec that could still hold damaging information about the president.
Democrats might be looking to subpoena Trump’s longtime chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg. The report explains that Cohen hinted at Weisselberg being an important member of Trump’s hush money scandal involving adult film star Stormy Daniels.
“In the process, he cast the spotlight on Weisselberg, a longtime member of the Trump operation since Fred ran it but a relative newcomer to the Donald Trump investigation,” The Beast wrote.
“News organizations had already reported that Weisselberg is the pseudonymous ‘Executive-1’ in Cohen’s plea agreement. Weisselberg doesn’t show up in the court documents’ narrative until around January 2017, when Cohen is trying to get paid back for the money he’d paid his boss’ mistress,” the report said.
However, the report explains that Weisselberg’s knowledge goes way beyond Daniels and that he may contain vital information about Trump’s taxes.
“Nor is Weisselberg’s potential knowledge limited to Stormy Daniels. Cohen testified that Trump fudged his net worth to make himself look richer on his personal financial statements.”
“Weisselberg may want to start picking out a testimony tie because it sounds an awful lot like the House Democrats are gearing up to subpoena him and potentially Donald Trump Jr,” the report said.
