NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump’s chief financial officer is expected to plead guilty on Thursday to tax violations in a deal that would require him to testify about business practices at the former president’s company. That’s according to two people who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. Allen Weisselberg is charged with taking more than $1.7 millionin untaxed compensation from the Trump Organization. The people told the AP that Weisselberg will have to speak in court about the company’s role in the compensation arrangement and possibly serve as a witness when the Trump Organization goes on trial in October. Messages seeking comment were left with prosecutors and lawyers for Weisselberg and Trump’s company.
