Former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen on Wednesday testified under oath that he believed President Donald Trump had committed insurance fraud and he listed Trump Organization executives who would know more about such schemes.
Axios’ Jonathan Swan reports that Cohen’s revelations will give Congress all the justification it needs to launch a deep probe into the Trump Organization for the first time.
In particular, Swan believes that things are about to get very uncomfortable for top Trump Organization executives Allen Weisselberg, Ron Lieberman, and Matthew Calamari.
“Unless you’re a student of The Trump Organization — the thinly-staffed Trump family business — you may never have heard of Weisselberg, Lieberman or Calamari,” Swan writes. “But over the next year, these men and their colleagues may become household names as they endure a far-reaching, multi-armed investigation into Trump’s family business and personal finances.”
Swan then quotes Trump biographer Tim O’Brien about what these executives can expect in the coming months.
“This organization has never had a proctology exam like it’s about to get,” he said. “It’s going to surface records that’s going to become problematic for all of them to keep their stories straight.”
