    Allen Weisselberg refuses to cooperate against Trump and pleads guilty to tax fraud

    One of Donald Trump’s most trusted executives, Allen Weisselberg, appeared before a judge on Thursday and pleaded guilty to 15 felonies, admitting that he conspired with the businessman’s company to carry out a plan to avoid paying taxes on lavish perks while refusing to implicate the former president himself.

    As part of the plea agreement with the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, Allen H. Weisselberg must testify at company trial if prosecutors decide to call him and admit his role in the conspiracy with Trump’s company to carry out the tax regime. That testimony could tip the balance against the company, the Trump Organization, while he is preparing for a trial in October related to the same accusations.

    “Yes, your honor,” Weisselberg said over and over in response to questions from the judge, Juan Merchan, who asked directly if he and the Trump Organization committed the criminal conduct underlying each of the 15 charges.

    According to the plea agreement, it is expected that Allen H. Weisselberg receives a sentence of five months in prison and with time credited for good behavior he is likely to serve a 100-day sentence. One of Trump’s most trusted executives, who initially faced a sentence of up to 15 years behind bars, he will also have to pay nearly $2 million in taxes.
