Trump Organization Found Guilty On All Charges In Tax Fraud Scheme

A jury has found the Trump Organization guilty on all charges, including criminal tax fraud. Prosecutors accused Donald Trump's company of tax evasion in a 15-year scheme of paying executives through gifts and off-the-books compensation. The one term President has been lashing out over this case for days on Truth Social, and we can expect another Trumper tantrum after the guilty verdict on 17 criminal counts was announced. CBS News reports: The jury began Monday around noon, after testimony and closing arguments wrapped up in the six-week trial. The two Trump Organization companies, called the Trump Corporation and Trump Payroll Corporation, were indicted in July 2021, along with the company's longtime chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, and accused of using a variety of methods to reduce payroll liability from executive salaries through untaxed bonuses and luxury perks worth millions. Weisselberg pleaded guilty in August and agreed to testify against the company as part of a deal with prosecutors.
