New York criminal prosecutors have made clear they’ll do whatever necessary to try to get Weisselberg to flip on Donald Trump. So they’ll obviously seek a harsh prison sentence if his case heads to trial. There’s no chance they seek probation or a fine. And Weisselberg is surely figuring this out.

With these charges and this proof, Weisselberg will almost certainly be convicted. Hoping for acquittal is not a valid strategy for him. His only hope would be if the judge gives him a surprisingly lenient sentence after he’s convicted.

But with prosecutors being this aggressive, if they ask for let’s say five years, and the judge is feeling lenient and gives him something like two years, that’s still two years too long for someone Weisselberg’s age.

Prosecutors have already signaled that they’ll go after Weisselberg’s kids if necessary to get him to flip. So even if he’s willing to send himself to prison, is he willing to send his kids? He’ll almost certainly end up having to face that choice.

   

We don’t know for certain what Weisselberg will do. But we can safely ignore anyone who says he’s facing a likely slap on the wrist, because that’s not reality. And as the days and weeks go on, Weisselberg’s current stance to not flip will be severely tested. This is only getting worse for him.
