The Memo: Immunity for Trump Org figure rattles White House
By Niall Stanage - 08/25/18 01:00 PM EDT

A grim seven days for President Trump and his allies was capped on Friday by news that Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, had been granted immunity by prosecutors.

The immunity deal is said to involve only Weisselberg’s testimony against the president’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

But supporters of the president worry about the potential ramifications of even a relatively narrow deal — and fear major consequences if Weisselberg were to be persuaded to talk more broadly.

“It’s hard to see how you could minimize it,” said one GOP strategist close to the White House. “He was the brains of the operation.”

Wow, this could be bad news, or it could clear Trump.
I suppose we'll find out soon enough.

Prosecutors generally don't give immunity to help the defense.

@GrouchoTex

If the Dims thought there was any danger of it clearing Trump,they wouldn't have offered immunity.

Unlike the alleged Republicans,Dims play to win.

@INVAR

I guess that means Priests and Nuns were all evil because they mostly associated with evil people?

Take it to it's logical conclusion,and I must be a communist because I was surrounded by communists on a regular basis in VN,Laos,and Cambodia?

They went into business, had friendships and partnerships with evil people?

Or were they pointing evil people in a right direction and attempting to save them from the consequences of evil???

There is a difference you know.
