NEW YORK CITY – Former Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg pleaded guilty Thursday to tax violations spanning over a decade, agreeing to serve 100 days behind bars and testify about the Trump Organization's business practices.
Weisselberg, 75, was charged with evading taxes by receiving perks that were not counted as income. He pleaded not guilty to 15 counts, including grand larceny last year, which, in the state of New York, is the unlawful taking of funds or property valued at $50,000 or more.
"In one of the most difficult decisions of his life, Mr. Weisselberg decided to enter a plea of guilty today to put an end to this case and the years-long legal and personal nightmares it has caused for him and his family," Weisselberg's attorney, Nicholas Gravante Jr., said.

And yet Al Sharpton runs free.
vicious phony Jesters in US Jesters System.
You can also add Bill and Hillary, Hunter Biden, and most other swamp creatures.
Has Biden reported his free luxury digs in the White House as taxable income? His free security detail? His free franking privileges?
Why do well compensated people do this? They’re not going to miss the money.
Put this guy on the list of pardons for Trump’s “45/47” term.
Expect more tax violations with the buffed up and weaponized IRS agents.
What makes you think he broke the law at all?
Trump is friends with Sharpton, I don’t think Sharpton ever worked for him.
AND Aoc!!!! 😡
To hug Hillary at ritzy Hamptons parties. Life is good for them.
I think perks that do not need to be reported, often very large ones, is a privilege that is limited to our elected officials who appear to be exempt from any such IRS rule.
You go to jail. They go to one of their paid up free and clear vacation homes. I guess it is our way of rewarding all that hard work they do writing those complex bills they pass.
Actually, Trump would be the victim of these act.

There out to dominate Adam, before the Revelation of the Embodiment of the Antichrist.
The Grand Deception.
Did he plea guilty because he is guilty? Or did he plea guilty to stop a years-long investigation with no end in sight?
He’s 75. He probably just wants to live whatever time he has left without this offer his head.
Because you can guarantee that this investigation and prosecution would follow him to the grave.
> Why do well compensated people do this? <
I don’t know how honest this guy is. But there are something like 100,000 federal laws and regulations. You or I might have broken a few this week without even knowing it.
It’s also worth mentioning that the tax laws are so convoluted that ask five tax advisers for a tax opinion, and you’re likely to get five different answers.
Depends on what the ‘deal’ is.
The problem is, once you plead guilty, any deal you think you made can be bypassed. They can still find a way to put you in jail.
This may be a dumb question but if the company car was used solely to do business and the apartment was owned by the company and the tenant was staying there because of serving the business would it be taxable?
