Manhattan DA reportedly collected data from former daughter-in-law of Trump Org exec
Jennifer Weisselberg speaks to NBC News about her former father-in-law, Allen Weisselberg, the company’s CFO.
Former daughter-in-law of the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg handed over financial records to Manhattan District Attorney investigator Cyrus Vance Jr. Thursday in response to a grand jury subpoena, the Washington Post reported.
Jennifer Weisselberg was married to Weisselberg’s son Barry Weisselberg from 2004 to 2018. She previously said she was working with prosecutors in Vance’s office and claims she was given several boxes of materials to give to investigators during the divorce proceedings.
The subpoena asked Jennifer Weisselberg to hand over any materials in her possession related to her ex-husband’s bank accounts, credit cards, asset statements, and tax returns, according to the Washington Post, which received a copy of the order.
The subpoena specifically requested materials related to the Trump Organization and an ice rink the company operates in Central Park, the Washington Post reported Wollman Rink. According to the newspaper, Barry Weisselberg manages the ice rink for the Trump Organization.
Vance, who is researching former President Donald Trump’s finances, has recently focused on Allen Weisselberg, possibly as part of an effort to get him to work together. The New York Times reported last month that Vance’s office had summoned Allen Weisselberg’s personal bank records.
Vance has said that he is investigating possible banking and insurance fraud related to the Trump organization. After a protracted legal battle that reached the Supreme Court twice, he received years of Trump’s closely guarded personal tax returns and other financial records in February.
Trump has called the investigation a witch hunt. Vance’s office has not brought charges against Trump, Barry or Allen Weisselberg. Neither Barry nor Allen Weisselberg responded to requests for comments submitted to the Trump Organization on Thursday.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Jennifer Weisselberg said, “My knowledge of the documents and my voice link the flow of money from various banks and personal finances that flow directly into the Trump organization.”
Duncan Levin, her attorney, said in a statement that “Jennifer Weisselberg works with prosecutors and is completely transparent. She has given them documents and continues to do so, and is determined to do everything possible to assist with the open investigation. “
