Daniel R. Alonso was quoted in The Guardian article, “New York grand jury stores up trouble for Trump Organization executives,” which discussed the report from the New York Times that the Manhattan district attorney’s office might be nearing the final stages of their criminal tax inquiry into the Trump Organization’s Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg. This report came after news that Jeff McConney, a senior vice-president and controller for the Trump Organization, has testified before the Manhattan special grand jury. Alonso discussed how McConney’s testimony could provide insight into prosecutors’ strategy and thoughts on potential wrongdoing.
“It appears from the reporting that Jeff McConney is getting immunity. They either don’t think that he has criminal exposure or if he does, they’re more interested in getting people higher up on the food chain if they can. And because a controller has daily interaction with a CFO, there are undoubtedly lots and lots of questions that the district attorney has asked him, or will ask him, or lots and lots of documents that they can show him that will make it difficult for him to feign a lack of memory.”
