@#1 ... Only the best people: ...

Woof, that is a succinct yet, in my view, frightening, summary of the current status of those who have orbited fmr Pres Trump.

And there are some who want more of that in 2024?

Attica! Attica! Attica! Attica!

Let's see how loyal this guy is now, standing on the precipice, about to spend (perhaps) his final days on this earth wearing a number, rising at 6am to swing a mop, and eating something beige every day, all in tribute to his lord and master, the orange insurrectionist. I'll wager that threatened with time in a scary state pen he will blab all day long, pull files and point to where the bodies are buried...

Weisselberg knows where all the skeletons are buried. He must have made one hell of a plea deal.

My guess is that guilty plea earned him a very light sentence with little or no prison time. He saved the state a lot of money by reducing the amount of time it was going to take to convict Donald J. of tax evasion ~~ not to mention all of Trumps shady banking and insurance fraud schemes for the past 15 years (which will spill over to federal charges.)

And maybe even some missing pieces about that Trump Tower-Moscow deal that made Trump's heart go pitty-pat for Putin all these years.

Some updates:
-Allen W. may be facing 15 years, and Bloomberg reports he may get only about 100 days in the can.
-He may subpoenaed for the trial trump faces, scheduled to begin October 24.
-Apparently Allen is NOT a CPA; those with that designation who are convicted of tax fraud are typically stripped of the designation

I'm just wondering why Bragg is letting him off with a plea deal and no cooperation. Smells fishy.

At least he didn't wear a tan suit.

He won't flip on the boss.

This guy is the very definition of a crook. Never liked his dealings and before any of this took place I accused him of actually being in charge of money laundering. If you actually saw this guy speak ever, you can instantly see he is up to no good.

Kind of like how the southern district just folded it's investigation of Trump abruptly causing the attorneys to resign in disgust?

It's almost like there is a bribe somewhere in there.

Expect AW to suddenly come down with a "serious health matter" that results in requiring home confinement so he can receive the care he needs.

They are already reporting he won't flip.

However, his guilty plea won't play well for them Trumps in their other civil cases.

Why would your cult leader trust a crook like this for so many years?

HUMTAKE will whine about people on both sides being crooks and then cheer Trump as he is declared President for Life.

Wow, there sure are a lot of guilty beyond a reasonable doubt criminal pieces of ---- in Trump's immediate orbit. I'm sure it's all just a big coincidence.
