Longtime Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg has been subpoenaed, the Wall Street Journal reports. That should come as little surprise; he was invoked twice in Michael Cohen’s taped conversation with President Trump about buying the rights to former Playboy model Karen McDougal’s story.
“I’ve spoken to Allen about how to set the whole thing up,” Cohen says on the September 2016 recording. He adds: “I spoke to Allen about it, when it comes time for the financing. …”
But that doesn’t mean it’s not a potentially huge moment. More than anything — more than whether Trump proposed paying cash for McDougal’s story or warned against it — this could be what matters on that tape.
