Allen Weisselberg, longtime chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, has been granted immunity by federal prosecutors as part of their investigation into President Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen. . . .
News of Weisselberg’s immunity deal follows a Thursday report that David Pecker, the chairman of publishing giant American Media, had received federal immunity as part of the Cohen investigation. The deal will escalate pressure on the president, who was implicated in a number of crimes that Cohen pleaded guilty to on Tuesday in Manhattan federal court.
