Allen Weisselberg, who has served as chief financial officer of the Trump Organization for over two decades, has surrendered to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office to face criminal charges, his lawyer confirmed to the media.
The 73-year-old was seen entering the Lower Manhattan building that houses the office of DA Cyrus R. Vance Jr., accompanied by his lawyer, early on Thursday morning, media outlets reported.
The legal development reportedly stems from a wider investigation that Vance is conducting into the business practices of the former US president and his company. His office is cooperating with New York State Attorney General Letitia James. If confirmed, this week’s indictment would be the first that the probe has resulted in so far. Donald Trump himself is not expected to be charged with any crime on Thursday.
Earlier, the US media said Weisselberg and the company he works for had been indicted by a grand jury on Wednesday.
