House Intel will call Trump Org moneyman Allen Weisselberg to testify

The House intelligence community intends to call the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer to testify, The Daily Beast has learned.

Allen Weisselberg received renewed congressional attention after disgraced Trump fixer Michael Cohen on Wednesday repeatedly mentioned the Trump Org CFO as crucial to various aspects of dubiously legal practices by the president, from the Stormy Daniels hush-money payments to potential insurance fraud.

“The Committee anticipates bringing in Mr. Weisselberg,” a Democratic committee aide told The Daily Beast.

Cohen, in marathon testimony to the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday, didn’t directly tie Weisselberg to the Trump camp’s interactions with Russia, the central preoccupation of the House intelligence committee.
