Glenn Kirschner: Trump Org/Weisselberg Indictment Suggests 2 Other “Trump Employees” Also Up for Possible Indictment

There is an ominous sentence on page ten of the Trump Organization/Allen Weisselberg indictment that suggests two other Trump Organization employees might be next in line for indictment. The sentence reads: “In addition to Weisselberg and his family member, two other employees received substantial amounts of compensation in the form of lodging in New York City and the payment of automobile leases.” You don’t need to read between the lines to realize that these two unnamed Trump Organization employees may have committed the very same crimes for which Weisselberg was just indicted. This begs the question, who else might have been so high up in the Trump Organization or so firmly entrenched in Trump’s inner circle that they might also have been part of the criminal scheme to defraud. There are certainly some Trump family members that would seem to fit that description. Any way you slice it, this language about “two other employees” being beneficiaries of the criminal scheme is a strong signal that future indictments are likely.
