It’s a very Trumpy 4th of July and Trump is where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, when joining me at my table for the full hour to discuss the Trump, Inc. indictment, the grumpy Supreme Court decisions, grr, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and so much more is my partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.
Trumpy is back in the news. Did he ever go away? The Trump Organization and Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg pleaded not guilty Thursday to crimes related to what prosecutors called a “sweeping and audacious” scheme to avoid taxes on compensation for the CFO and other executives. The company is owned by former President Donald Trump, who was not charged. A 15-count indictment says the Trump Organization and Weisselberg devised a scheme to compensate Weisselberg and other company executives in an “off the books” manner, in which they “received substantial portions of their income through indirect and disguised means.” A prosecutor in court said that the “the former CEO” of the Trump Organization — ex-President Trump — “signed, himself, many of the illegal compensation checks” to executives. Then Trumpy’s Supreme Court took another major stab at voter’s rights and protected dark money’s infiltration of our politics. Halli goes off on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Matt catches us up and “This Week on Tucker Carlson” but that’s just where we begin. Tune in
