CNN reporter Kara Scannell revealed on Monday that the attorneys representing longtime Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg don't think he's the last person at the organization who will face criminal charges.
While talking about Weisselberg's Monday court appearance, Scannell broke down some surprising moments that had potential implications for former President Donald Trump.
"One of his lawyers spoke up and he said he strongly believes indictments are coming in this case," she explained. "He didn't say who, or how many, or why he believed it, but we have been reporting that the [Manhattan District Attorney's Office] has been investigating another top Trump Organization official -- Matthew Calamari, he's the chief operating officer."
Weisselberg was first indicted this past July on 15 charges that included four counts of criminal tax fraud and one count of grand larceny.
The longtime Trump Organization CFO has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Marjorie Taylor Greene's impeachment rant goes off the rails: 'God will no longer provide protection'
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) explained on Monday why she supports articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden.
In a floor speech, Greene said that she was prompted to file articles of impeachment because of "his disgraceful actions having to do with Afghanistan."
According to the Georgia Republican, Biden is guilty of treason because he gave "aid and comfort to the enemies."
Greene also pointed to the "security crisis created at our southern border, which today is actually being invaded."
The lawmaker then veered into a rant about abortion.
"But heading into this week, perhaps the most evil and disgusting thing that is going to happen in this 117th Congress is the bill that's going to be introduced that makes it a federal law to allow abortion up until the day of birth," she complained. "This wall [in the House chamber] says 'In God We Trust' and if that is the case then this Congress will reject this evil bill and protect the innocent unborn."
Greene added: "If this nation becomes a nation where we have such a federal law that can kill a baby up until the day of birth then God will no longer provide protection and his grace over America."

Elementary school staffer protested vax mandate by wearing Blackface to portray herself as Rosa Parks: report
A staff member at an elementary school in Newberg, Oregan has been suspended after she wore Blackface to class in an attempt to protest against her school's vaccination mandate.
Ryan Clarke, a reporter at the Newberg Graphic, explained that the teacher in question wore Blackface to try to portray herself as legendary civil rights icon Rosa Parks, who famously refused to obey racist laws that forced Black people to sit in the back of public busses.
Clarke noted that the vaccine mandate in schools extends to both teachers and staff members, although "staff can seek exemptions but those are granted in very rare circumstances (medical, religious)."
A statement posted by Newberg Public Schools condemned the staffer's actions and said that the staffer was placed on administrative leave following the incident.
"The administration of Newberg Public Schools condemns all expressions of racism," the school district said. "It is important to remember how Blackface has been used to misrepresent Black communities and do harm... Blackface has no place in our schools, and we are committed to the work of created spaces where every student belongs as we move forward together in our mission of educating students."
