The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the New York Attorney General’s Office have obtained indictments against the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, two people familiar with the matter told NBC News on Wednesday.
The charges, handed up by a New York grand jury, are expected to be unsealed in court Thursday afternoon in Manhattan, one Trump representative told NBC News.
The charges stem from a scheme to pay compensation to Weisselberg and possibly others “off the books” by the Trump Organization.
A spokesperson for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has declined to comment on a report that indictments have already been filed against the Trump Organization and Weisselberg.
NBC News reported last week that District Attorney Cy Vance’s office was expected to charge the Trump Organization as early as this week.
