- A grand jury in Manhattan previously indicted the Trump Organization and its CFO, Allen Weisselberg.
- WSJ: The organization removed Weisselberg as an officer at some subsidiaries.
- Despite his reduced role, Weisselberg is expected to remain with the company.
Allen Weisselberg, longtime chief of financial operations for the Trump Organization, has been removed as an officer at some of the company’s subsidiaries, according to reports.
Weisselberg’s removal comes after prosecutors recently accused him and the Trump Organization of a 15-year tax-fraud scheme. The ex-CFO was head of multiple entities of the company belonging to former President Donald Trump.
The Wall Street Journal first reported on the removals.
Weisselberg was terminated last week as director at Trump International Golf Club Scotland Limited, which is tied to Trump’s Scotland golf course, the Journal reported as one example.
Weisselberg, who has worked for the Trump family since 1973, is expected to remain with the company despite changes in duties and title, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The Trump Organization and Weisselberg were charged in a 15-count indictment alleging criminal tax fraud, conspiracy and falsifying business records.
The case was among the first criminal charges resulting from a multiyear investigation into Trump’s business dealings by the Manhattan district attorney’s office in tandem with the New York attorney general’s office.
Both the Trump Organization and Weisselberg have pleaded not guilty.
