New York DA may have just 'found their insider' in the Trump Organization: former Mueller prosecutor
On Wednesday's edition of MSNBC's "The Beat," former top Robert Mueller prosecutor Andrew Weissman highlighted how the calling of Trump Organization executive Jeff McConney to testify before a Manhattan grand jury signals prosecutors might already have their window into what makes the company tick.
"I'd like to throw out one more name, which is Jeff McConney, because I don't think that's gotten enough attention because last week the reports were that he went into the state grand jury and he is the controller of the Trump Organization," said Weissman. "So, again, all speculation, but clearly you're looking for an insider. That's why there is so much focus on Allen Weisselberg trying to get somebody who is on the inside who would know where every penny went. Well, that's the controller as well as the CFO. So if Jeff McConney is cooperating, that is really bad news potentially for Weisselberg and for the Trump Organization and other individuals up to and including the former president."
"In other words, Manhattan may have found their insider, because it would be unusual to put somebody like McConney into the state grand jury, where he would be given immunity as soon as he testifies automatically, if they didn't think that he had something useful to provide," added Weissman.
