Judge denies Trump Org and former CFO's motion to dismiss tax fraud indictment

Quote:
A New York state judge denied the Trump Organization and its former chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg's motions to dismiss tax fraud charges during a hearing Friday.

Judge Juan Merchan said he would grant a hearing to hear arguments over whether statements Weisselberg made while in custody the day of his arrest in July 2021 could be suppressed. The Manhattan district attorney's office did not oppose the hearing but opposed the motion.

Weisselberg and the Trump Organization were indicted last year on charges they were involved in a 15-year tax fraud scheme. They both pleaded not guilty.

The judge said jury selection would begin in the trial on October 24.

Tax fraud cases don't usually get started without a whole lot of evidence already in the bag. Fraud cases are not step one on the enforcement ladder.

I'll probably still be hearing that two years from now.

Meaning that Trump is going to slide? That's always a possibility, I suppose, but hopefully not.
