Allen Weisselberg has officially been removed as Trump Organization’s CFO, as well as CFO of hundreds of subsidiary companies. This news comes after Weisselberg turned himself in to the Manhattan District Attorney in early July after being indicted on tax fraud.

Weisselberg will remain with the organization, but his role and title will change. He has worked for the company 1973, starting with Trump’s father, Fred Trump. Trump has spoken out about Weisselberg’s case, saying “I’m with him all the way.”

Legal experts say it is normal when an employee of a company is under indictment, they are removed from their positions. The Florida Department of State business records now list Donald Trump Jr. as the CFO of numerous Trump companies.

It is widely believed that that the D.A. is seeking Weisselberg’s cooperation to get him to flip on the former president to save himself from time in prison.
