When Allen Weisselberg’s lawyers stated in court on Monday that they expect more people to be indicted in the New York criminal probe into the Trump Organization, Palmer Report pointed out that indictments tend to move up the chain of command – and that everyone in the Trump Organization who outranks Weisselberg is named “Trump.”
Now it turns out Michael Cohen, who has met with New York prosecutors about this criminal case a double digit number of times, sees it the same way we do. In response to the news, Cohen tweeted “The prosecutors are coming…the prosecutors are coming!!! This new evidence is definitely not a good sign for @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump @IvankaTrump #MatthewCalamari.”
This means that three of Donald Trump’s kids have to worry about being indicted for their roles in the Trump Organization’s decades-long crime spree. We also agree with Cohen that Trump Organization executive Matthew Calamari is going to end up in serious trouble if he doesn’t end up cooperating; his son Matthew Calamari Jr. already reportedly testified to the New York grand jury earlier this month.
Our guess is that Calamari ends up cutting a cooperating plea deal and testifies against the Trump family. In such case, Calamari would be getting the leniency that Allen Weisselberg was offered but turned down.
