MSNBC just hit the Trump insider trifecta last night when they had not one, not two, but a total of three different former Trump officials or associates on their show, and boy, did they have tea to spill.
On last night’s edition of MSNBC’s The Beat, host Ari Melber spoke with Trump’s former personal attorney and self-described “fixer” Michael Cohen, Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg’s ex-daughter-in-law Jennifer Weisselberg, and Melania Trump’s former associate and old BFF Stephanie Winston Wolkoff — all at the same time.
All three of the former Trump era associates were quick to agree that the new criminal probe against the former president and his organization is set to put Donald and the majority of his inner circle in serious jeopardy — most particularly, Trump Organization CFO, Allen Weisselberg.
“I think [Allen] is the maestro,” said Weisselberg’s ex-daughter-in-law Jennifer. “He’s the one that has orchestrated — he’s at the apex of it. I think that — I don’t fully believe Donald knows the ins and outs — not of what’s going on, he’s absolutely fine with whatever saves him money on his taxes to benefit him, but Allen is the one who orchestrated all things and put the family and everyone in a bad position.” She goes on to say that she fully expects her former father-in-law to flip on Donald Trump.

“Allen is a very interesting guy because Allen was the gatekeeper for every penny that came in and went out of the Trump Organization,” Trump’s old “fixer,” Michael Cohen said. “But it wasn’t just the Trump Organization. It was Donald’s personal accounts. It was the kids’ business accounts, presidential inaugural committee, campaign. Any penny that had anything to do with Donald Trump went through Allen Weisselberg’s desk … I do believe that he has significant exposure, and I think his exposure is not one that you can just hide because the beautiful thing about numbers is numbers don’t lie.”
Host Melber asked Winston-Wolkoff, “Stephanie, when Donald Trump was ostensibly busy being president, who was running the Trump Organization, based on your knowledge?”
“Based on my knowledge, it was — i think they were all still involved,” Melania’s former close friend responded. “I don’t really have the authority to say who was. Supposedly Don Jr. and Eric, but Allen, as always, again knowing that he had his fingers all over the finances was so — I — I was so enraged because that was something thrown on me and my family, that I was accused of stealing millions of dollars after giving, you know, something that was supposed to be more patriotic … the reality of all of this is Allen was also involved with what happened to me so intrinsically and I wasn’t really aware until after it was brought to my attention and after I read the 900-page deposition.”
So, not only are many of Trump’s former “people” actively speaking out and working against him, they’re doing it together now.
