A Running List Of The Probes That Pose The Greatest Threat To Trumpworld

It was never just about Russia. When Donald Trump entered the Oval Office in January 2017, he brought with him an ever-evolving cloud of scandal that has hung low over his entire administration. There are currently several ongoing congressional, city, state and federal investigations into Trump’s personal finances and sexual relationships, his real estate company and his family members. Some — like the lawsuit alleging corruption at the Trump Foundation, twin suits alleging Trump’s D.C. hotel ...

Trump’s Bad Week: One-By-One The President’s Men Turn Against Him

WASHINGTON (AP) — On one of the worst days of his presidency, Donald Trump was chatting aboard Air Force One when the conversation took a detour into gallows humor. Trump was returning from a rally in West Virginia just hours after two former members of his inner circle were found or pleaded guilty, when one passenger quipped that a news story would surely soon be breaking about the president fuming onboard. Everyone laughed, including the president. Despite the momentary levity, though, Trum...

Fearing Trump’s Slipperiness, Associates Created Evidence Against Him

President Trump has more than a few characteristics that make him a challenging boss. He is mercurial, quick to turn on subordinates deemed insufficiently loyal, and has a slippery relationship with the truth. Those traits help explain why so many of the President’s associates in business and government felt compelled to document their interactions with him. Out of self-preservation, a desire to keep an accurate record, a lack of trust—or some combination of the three—everyone from former FBI Di...

From Casinos To Trump U: Subpoenaed Trump Org CFO Was Key To Major Endeavors

When the news broke last week that the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer was subpoenaed to provide testimony in Michael Cohen’s criminal investigation, the company resorted to one of Trump’s favored tactics: minimization. CFO Allen Weisselberg was a “bookkeeper who simply carries out directions from others,” Trump Organization attorney Alan Garten said. But that characterization of Weisselberg is belied by years of reporting, court documents and even Trump’s own words. “Allen has been...

‘Foot In The Door’: Prosecutors Penetrate Trump Org With Subpoena To CFO

This week brought an unwelcome turn in the spotlight for a notoriously under-the-radar fixture in President Trump’s inner circle: Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg. Weisselberg’s name first cropped up in a now-public audio recording of Trump and his former fixer Michael Cohen discussing a payment related to Trump’s alleged  affair with a former Playboy playmate. Then, on Thursday, the Wall Street Journal broke the news that Weisselberg has been subpoenaed to testify be...

Trump Allies View Cohen As Greatest Threat To Trump Presidency

WASHINGTON (AP) — The sudden public airing of Donald Trump talking about paying for a Playboy model’s silence marks a turning point in the legal game of cat-and-mouse between the president and the lawyer who once promised to take a bullet for Trump but now seems out to save himself. The feud between Trump and his onetime legal “fixer,” Michael Cohen, escalated when an audio recording of their 2016 pre-election conversation was released Tuesday by Cohen, prompting Trump to tweet Wednesday: “What ...
