Trump Organization expected to be charged with tax-related crimes on Thursday
NBC - The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is expected to charge the Trump Organization with tax-related crimes on Thursday, two representatives of the company told NBC News.
One person said that the charges are expected to be filed around 2 p.m. ET. As of Wednesday morning, law enforcement officials have not confirmed the timing of the charges.
It is not clear whether the company’s chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, will also be charged Thursday.
NBC News reported last week that District Attorney Cy Vance’s office was expected to charge the Trump Organization as early as this week.
The charges come amid an investigation Vance has been conducting into a variety of allegations of financial improprieties against former President Donald Trump’s company. Vance’s office had been looking into criminal conduct at the Trump Organization, court documents previously showed, such as falsifying business records, insurance fraud and tax fraud.
The Wall Street Journal first reported that the charges would be filed Thursday, including against Weisselberg.
