Update from Attorney Alan Dershowitz.
We have some good news and some bad news.
First, the good news.
According to Dershowitz, the charges against Allen Weisselberg will not stick and they will be thrown out.
Charges related to federal taxes that have filed in New York City against the Trump Organization and its CFO Allen Weisselberg, will end up being thrown out, Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax on Saturday. https://t.co/N6iGqsLF6e

Charges related to federal taxes that have filed in New York City against the Trump Organization and its CFO Allen Weisselberg, will end up being thrown out, Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax on Saturday.
“You can’t get a city district attorney indicting somebody for failing to pay federal income taxes when the IRS hasn’t even gone after him,” Dershowitz told “Saturday Report.” “One of the charges, a major charge, is grand larceny against the United States government. That shows the extent to which they are prepared to stretch existing law and the Constitution to give them authority over federal taxes? It’s absurd.”
Now, the bad news.
Dershowtiz pointed out that if Weisselberg didn’t work for the Trump Orgization he would have never been indicted.
Derhowtiz then laid out the end goal of this investigation.
The end goal is to get Weisselberg to flip against Trump and the orgaization:
“If he doesn’t turn, they will sentence him to prison, probably will not be a long prison term. Generally for crimes like this relating to a relatively small amount of taxes, there’s either no prison time or a small amount in prison time,” Dershowitz said.
Or, Weisselberg might turn, and then “the dominoes will fall,” he continued.
“That’s the goal, to try to get people like him to testify against the higher-ups,” Dershowitz said. “The ultimate goal here obviously, is Donald Trump and the question is will they get people to turn on him.”
Now, we did see this same tactic used in the Mueller probe, and in the end, it fell flat because no crime was committed.
The one thing we do know is that this is about political retribution and stopping Trump from running in 2024.
