Prosecutors circling Trump's businesses after Cohen plea

Mr Weisselberg, who has been at Mr Trump's side for four decades, is also treasurer of the Trump Foundation, the family charity under investigation for misuse of...

Other major dominoes have fallen since, as National Enquirer CEO David Pecker and Weisselberg have both received immunity for useful information on these on payments.

Mr. Trump has also denied having sex with the second woman, adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

Trump expressed his irritation at Cohen, once steadfastly loyal to him, and "flippers" in general. "I think everybody would be very poor", the president said in an interview with Fox News.

Now the private and loyal Weisselberg is in the spotlight as the latest Trump confidant, and perhaps the most significant, to strike a deal with federal investigators for protection and to tell what he knows.

The man who knows the most about Donald Trump's murky finances has been granted immunity from prosecution in the case against the President's former lawyer. "He knows where the money is", said CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin on Friday.

Calls for Trump's impeachment came in the wake of revelations by his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen that he paid hush money to two women, on Trump's instruction.

Making matters worse, Michael Cohen, Trump's long-time fixer, also pleaded guilty to eight felonies in connection with fraud.

The Trump Organization paid Cohen in $35,000 installments through 2017, and submitted false invoices for the payments which it said were part of a monthly retainer.

Trump biographer Michael D'Antonio says the president may be surprised that he can't exert more control from the West Wing over his former friends and employees.

A cooperation deal between Weisselberg and prosecutors could be damaging to the president given the CFO's longtime role in Trump's business affairs.

Experts said the deals were a sign Weisselberg, Pecker and Howard faced criminal exposure because the government did not grant immunity lightly.
