Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether other officials in the Trump Organization violated campaign finance laws following their conviction last month of former longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who admitted to making hush payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, two women who claim to have had affairs with President Trump.
According to Bloomberg, Manhattan prosecutors are working on a parallel track to U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller and are looking at whether other top officials in the company were involved as well.
Trump Organization chief financial officer (CFO) Allen Weisselberg, who has been granted limited immunity in the investigation, is said to be cooperating with the probe. A source told the news outlet that Weisselberg has narrowly cooperated with authorities regarding details of Cohen’s payments to Daniels and McDougal.
Cohen admitted in federal court last month that he committed the campaign finance violation “in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office,” referring to President Trump.
