Court documents in the plea deal that the Southern District of New York (SDNY) has given to Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg, and the charges against Cohen reveal that he was criminally conspiring with two Trump Organization executives to make illegal hush money payoffs – and one of them appears to be one of Donald Trump’s kids.
As reported by Politico, Cohen was plotting with “Executive 1” – who is all but certainly Weisselberg – and an unidentified “Executive 2.” The thing is, there are very few officials in the Trump Organization who could have signed off on something like this. In fact, the only plausible possibilities are three people named Trump. Politico is making the argument that it’s most likely Donald Trump Jr. There is reason to suspect it might be Eric Trump, as it was reported months ago that Donald Trump ordered Eric and Michael Cohen to silence Stormy Daniels. There is also an argument to be made that it’s Ivanka, based on her overall role in the Trump Organization at the time.
The bottom line is that the SDNY knows who it is, and likely has the person nailed.
Allen Weisselberg is definitely in a position to testify first hand about this person’s crimes, and Cohen may have direct knowledge of the person’s crimes as well. Further, the charges against Cohen allege that Donald Trump criminally conspired with Executive 2.
So not only does it appear that SDNY is on the verge of indicting and arresting one of Donald Trump’s kids, but it also appears that doing so will officially make Donald Trump an unindicted co-conspirator in a felony.
The Trumps are running out of alibis and it looks like we’re on the verge of one of the president’s kids being indicted and arrested, and Trump not being able to do anything at all about it.
