Witch Hunt: Manhattan DA Prosecuting Trump Org Previously Refused to Go After Weinstein, Epstein

• Western Journal

Cyrus Vance Jr., the Democratic district attorney for New York's Manhattan District, is more than happy to go on a fishing expedition against former President Donald Trump and the Trump Organization. When it came to being tough on Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein, however, Vance's office couldn't be bothered.

According to The Wall Street Journal, a New York grand jury indicted the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization — as well as the organization itself — for allegedly evading taxes on fringe benefits such as car leases and apartments.

The indictment, unveiled Thursday, alleged Allen Weisselberg, who has worked for the Trump organization for 48 years, evaded taxes on $1.76 million since 2005.
