  • Former Trump CFO Allen Weisselberg pleads guilty to perjury in ex-president’s civil fraud trial
  • Weisselberg surrendered to the Manhattan prosecutor’s office and pleaded guilty to five counts of perjury.

Allen Weisselberg, the former CFO of the Trump Organization, pleaded guilty to perjury in New York in connection with his testimony at the ex-president’s civil fraud trial. Prosecutors accused Weisselberg of lying under oath about allegations that Trump lied about his wealth on financial statements. He will be sentenced to five months in jail. This comes as Trump appeals a judgment ordering him to pay over $454 million for submitting fraudulent information about his asset values. Weisselberg had previously served time for dodging taxes and testifying as a prosecution witness against the Trump Organization. The new criminal case against Weisselberg is separate from the one brought against Trump last year, and he is scheduled to stand trial on separate allegations involving hush money payments. Weisselberg’s guilty plea has implications for the upcoming trial scheduled on March 25.
