Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg granted immunity to testify

Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg granted immunity to testify

Porn actress Stormy Daniels was reportedly paid $US130,000 for the rights to her story.

Allen Weisselberg, 71, provided information to federal prosecutors in the case against Michael Cohen, Mr Trump's lawyer. "They didn't come out of the campaign, they came from me".

A co-operation deal between Mr. Weisselberg and prosecutors could be damaging to Mr. Trump given the executive's long-time role in Mr. Trump's business affairs. Daniels was paid $US130,000, and McDougal was paid $US150,000.

But as a long-serving employee in the Trump family business, he is rich repository of knowledge, and the idea of him answering questions to investigators under oath poses a new danger for the president as federal prosecutors in Washington and Manhattan dig deeper into the president's business affairs. He also said he was only aware of the payments "later on".

However US intelligence officials have also said that North Korea may have increased production of fuel for nuclear weapons at multiple secret sites, according to an NBC News report in July. "You know the saying, "where there's smoke, there's fire"?", Ware said.

In fact, prosecutors said, Cohen had no retainer agreement with the Trump Organization at the time, and the invoices were not in connection with any legal services he provided in 2017.

"Correct", Cohen replies. "So, I'm all over that".

Coconut Oil Is ‘Pure Poison,’ Harvard Professor Claims
The group said to "opt for naturally occurring unhydrogenated vegetable oils such as canola, safflower, sunflower or olive oil". The video, which has garnered 400,000 hits, comes after the American Heart Association has advised people to avoid coconut oil.

Mr Weisselberg's deal comes on the heels of several media reports that Mr Trump's longtime friend David Pecker, the CEO of National Enquirer publisher American Media Inc, has also been granted immunity in the Cohen probe, as well as the company's chief content officer, Dylan Howard.

There is no indication their cooperation extends beyond the scope of the Cohen probe.

On Tuesday-the same day as Cohen's plea-former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was convicted on bank and tax fraud felonies.

On one of the worst days of his presidency, Donald Trump was chatting aboard Air Force One when the conversation took a detour into gallows humor. But the mere existence of the previously unknown payment suggests that Cohen may have been doing more for Trump, and for the Trump campaign, than simply paying off women.

The Enquirer endorsed Trump for president in 2016, the first time it had ever officially backed a candidate. What they found was passed on to NY judicial authorities.

Positive headlines for Trump, a Republican, were matched by negative stories about his opponents, including Hillary Clinton, a Democrat: an Enquirer front page from 2015 said "Hillary: 6 Months to Live" and accompanied the headline with a picture of an unsmiling Clinton with bags under her eyes.
