The questioning, which the former prosecutor of the mob is now leading, and another person who is familiar with this investigation has said that this is aimed at the quite flipping Weisselberg.

Cyrus R. Vance Jr. (D), who is the top prosecutor of Manhattan, has still not formally accused a person of any wrongdoing, whether it is Trump or Weisselberg or anyone’s family as of now. But this focus on the Weisselberg has underscored this ambition and depth of Vance’s inquiry, which has undergone a criminal investigation that will be much broader than against Trump’s company, and he is known to have faced before much bigger investigations.

Vance’s sole focus is on Weisselberg, who has included these questions related to 2 of his adult children, a tactical one that could be used to increase pressure on the elder Weisselberg. It is known that one of the sons of Weisselberg has also worked to benefit the Trump Organization. It was for this company that he managed Central Park’s ice rinks. Another of the Weisselberg sons has worked for a company that has extended its loans of unknown nature to the Trump Organization. This is fishy.

Vance recently got millions of document pages of former president Trump’s financial reports and tax records. Now he wants to stay focused on the human equivalent: that is, finding a person who has been paying Trump’s bills and has kept his books from the 1980s.

Weisselberg, who has been the CFO since 2000, has said that he handles most of all its financial nature transactions. He later described himself in a position as Trump’s eyes and ears’ when understood from an economic standpoint.

A former employee of Trump has said that Allen was in charge of everything going around. But he spoke on the condition to remain anonymous due to this matter’s sensitivity, as has been done by several people who are familiar with this investigation going around.

Vance has also declined to comment on this report. The Trump Organization did the same thing. The attorney of Weisselberg, Mary Mulligan, has kept mum. They all believe speaking about the matter to the press might increase their problems, and this might go against them. 

Generally, these efforts for flipping the witnesses have two parts in common: First is the prosecutors’ work is to gather evidence that a witness might have legal liabilities of their own. In which they try to convince these witnesses that they can save themselves easily by turning on on the higher ones. The second one involves shaking up the person with the knowledge of the case, for which the prosecutors throw a wide net to make the person perplexed, which would lead the person to confess their guilt.

In the Trump case, the prosecutors have already scrutinized the work of Weisselberg in aiding in assessing the value of Trump’s buildings which the company used for obtaining property-tax reductions or loans. This was said by the people who are familiar with the investigation.
