Even More Developments Threaten Trump
Additional Signaling of Growing Legal Problems For The Former President
This is the second case just this week, notes public interest law professor John Banzhaf.
In the other, the GSA said it would turn over many of the records requested by House Transportation Chairman Peter DeFazio related to the Trump International Hotel lease of the Old Post Office Building.
In both cases, similar requests had been turned down during the Trump administration.
In a somewhat related development, which could also harm Trump, the Justice Department agreed to have former Trump White House counsel Don McGahn testify before the House Judiciary Committee.
So there's ever growing evidence that the noose is tightening around Trump, and that a criminal indictment against him is increasingly likely, says Banzhaf, whose formal complaint triggered a major criminal investigation of him in Georgia.
Now it appears that prosecutors in New York have subpoenaed records of a private school in an effort to prove that the Trump Organization's CFO Allen Weisselberg evaded taxes on some $500,000 which was paid in tuition by the Trump's organization for his children's tuition.
This appears to be part of an effort to pressure him to flip on his former boss, says Banzhaf.
These new developments are just the latest signals of growing legal trouble for the former president, suggests Banzhaf.
