Donald Trump has a consistent habit of distancing himself from his top underlings once it becomes clear that they’re going to go down for their role in his crimes. In the week since Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg’s indictment and arrest, we’ve all been waiting to see if Trump would indeed begin throwing Weisselberg under the bus.

Now it turns out Weisselberg has indeed been ousted from at least one of Donald Trump’s companies. Martyn McLaughlin, a reporter for the Scotsman, is reporting that the company known as “Trump International Golf Club Scotland Limited” has just terminated Allen Weisselberg as a director.

There is no word of Trump terminating Weisselberg from The Trump Organization or any of his American properties. It’s not immediately clear if that is also forthcoming, or if this move is limited solely to Trump’s company in Scotland.

Nor is it clear why Trump would focus on ousting Weisselberg from his company in Scotland, when Weisselberg has been indicted in the United States. Forbes has previously reported that the Scottish government is looking at investigating Trump’s properties in Scotland for money laundering, but it’s unclear if this is connected to the Weisselberg move.

   

The only thing we know for certain is that just one week after Allen Weisselberg was criminally indicted for his actions within the Trump Organization, Donald Trump is already removing Weisselberg from the board of directors of at least one of his companies. That can’t be a coincidence, and now we wait for the other shoe – whatever it is – to drop.
