If you’ve been following the news on Donald Trump lately, you’ll know that things are not looking good for the president of late. As more experts try to predict how this is all going to turn out for The Donald, the president’s situation continues to look more dire as the days go by.
Most recently, Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg was granted immunity, which looks like it could destroy the company according to former federal prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks. In an interview with MSNBC, Wine-Banks explained what Weisselberg’s immunity could mean for Trump — and considering the fact that Wine-Banks was a Watergate prosecutor, this is something we should all be listening to.
In speaking on New York’s investigation into the Trump Organization, Wine-Banks told MSNBC host Ali Velshi:
Obviously the state has gotten the information from the investigation in the Southern District of New York and they are pursuing it. And you are correct, it is something that Donald Trump cannot pardon anyone for, so it’s significant.”

She also made the case that Trump was guilty as hell:
There’s something really significant in the fact that they grossed up the amount — that shows that they knew that they were paying a sham invoice. If they had been actually reimbursing him, he wouldn’t have to pay taxes on it.
So that’s pretty clear proof that the Trump organization is guilty. And, it also … makes the crime at the state level a felony because they’re concealing another crime.”
She then compared Trump’s scandal to Watergate and touched on the immunity of the Trump Organization’s CFO.
So I would say there’s a couple of Watergate analogies, which is ‘What did the president know and when did he know it?’
If he’s smart and has a good immunity deal, he ought to get it all out now while he has immunity and that could really lead to the downfall of the Trump Organization.”

The last few days have been a blur for Trump and his team, as all of Trump’s minions go down one by one. It’s only a matter of time before the president gets his turn.
