Trump Organization could face New York state criminal charges next week | Fox News

Donald Trump’s lawyers have been notified by the Manhattan district attorney’s office that it is considering charges against the Trump Organization, according to reports Friday.

The charges, which could be announced by district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. as early as next week, involve fringe benefits the organization allegedly awarded to top executive Allen H. Weisselberg – the organization’s longtime chief financial officer, an attorney for Trump Organization and Donald Trump confirmed to Fox News.

Prosecutors are reportedly looking into perks that were awarded to the top executive, including tens of thousands of dollars for private schooling for one of Weisselberg’s grandchildren, along with car leases and apartment rent doled out by the organization.

Trump has repeatedly called the investigation a “witch hunt” and claimed it is politically motivated.
