Former Prosecutor on Trump Probe: Cohen and Weisselberg 'Know Where All the Bodies Are Buried'
Former Morris County, N.J. prosecutor Bob Bianchi said Thursday that two key employees of the Trump Organization likely "know where the bodies are buried" when it comes to any potential criminal activity that may or may not have occurred.
Bianchi said that in any business the two most important people are the top attorney and the top accountant.
Michael Cohen previously served as then-mogul Donald Trump's personal attorney, and Allen Weisselberg is the current Trump Organization CFO.
Weisselberg has been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury in the Cohen probe, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The Journal also reported that Weisselberg helped facilitate the Trump Organization to pay Cohen, who had shelled out $130,000 to pornographic actress Stormy Daniels as a means to goad Daniels to keep quiet about an alleged tryst between the current president and the porn star.
"Once [investigators] speak to [Weisselberg], they'll get to Cohen," Bianchi told Shepard Smith.
Bianchi was referencing the probe centered in federal court in the Southern District of New York State.
Smith asked what potential crimes are being investigated.
Bianchi said that investigators are likely looking to see if campaign finance violations or wire fraud occurred.
Bianchi said Cohen is likely not cooperating with the feds, explaining that a cooperating witness would not go public with the new recording aired by CNN anchor Christopher Cuomo that included part of a conversation between Trump and the attorney.
Smith noted that he and Bianchi were not speculating as to whether Trump or any associates committed any crimes, but instead what the "legalities" might be as the probe moves ahead.
