What has already been a truly disastrous week for the scandal-ridden ex-president just turned absolutely hellish, as CBS News now reports that a motion to dismiss filed by former longtime Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg was brutally smacked down by a New York judge today in his case on charges of conspiracy, grand larceny, criminal tax fraud, and falsifying business records. In a bombshell — and quite frankly damning for Donald Trump — ruling handed down this morning, the judge officially ordered that the criminal fraud and tax evasion case against both Weisselberg and the Trump Organization as a whole will move forward.

CBS News reports, “Weisselberg and the company asked a judge in February to dismiss all 15 counts charged against them. Judge Juan Merchan dismissed one of several tax fraud counts against the Trump Organization, but allowed all others to remain. The Trump Organization and Weisselberg accused prosecutors of targeting them ‘based on political animus’ toward former President Donald Trump.”

Law & Crime also reported on the bombshell news, adding, “The Manhattan District Attorney’s office unsealed the 25-page indictment, which also named the Trump Corporation and Trump Payroll Corp. as co-defendant, in July 2021.”

“Prosecutors accuse Weisselberg of a 15-year scheme to defraud federal, New York State, and New York City tax authorities of $1.76 million in ‘off-the-books’ compensation. These included $359,058 in tuition expenses for multiple family members, $196,245 for leases on his Mercedes Benz automobiles, $29,400 in unreported cash, and an unspecified amount in ad hoc personal expenses, according to his indictment,” their report continues.

Weisselberg — who began his long-term career with the Trump Organization under Donald’s father Fred back in 1973 — worked as the now ex-president’s top-level accountant for the family company, handling almost the entirety of Donald Trump’s various business interests and was actually the co-trustee of the trust that was put into place when Trump took office in 2017.

Truly, it’s only a matter of time at this point before something finally takes Donald Trump out for good.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
