Former Trump Organization executive vice president Barbara Res predicted on Friday that Allen Weisselberg, the company's longtime chief financial officer, knows of at least five additional hush money conspiracies.

Res appeared on MSNBC's "All In" with Ari Melber to discuss what Weisselberg will likely reveal when called to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.

"Do you think there may be other hush money payments you don't know about?" Melber asked.

"Yes," Res answered.

"How many?" Melber asked.

"Just instinctively, lots," she replied.

"More than five?" he asked.

"Probably," she answered.

"More than ten?" he asked.

"I can't say," she replied.

However many the number, they may have Trump's signature on the check.

"Trump would do that kind of thing and Alan would be the guy who draw out the check, probably Trump would sign it himself," she added.
