Excluding only one of the women Trump married, it seems every woman who ever met Donald Trump has had a disturbing experience with him, but Jennifer Weisselberg, ex daughter-in-law of the Trump Organization’s CFO Allen Weisselberg, is speaking out publicly about her experience with the former president as well as privately with investigators from the southern district of New York. In addition to Ms. Weisselberg having had a similar experience to many other women who met Trump, she was also witness to the corruption in the Trump family business.
Jennifer Weisselberg is committed to speaking the truth, no matter how difficult that may be. She’ll continue to cooperate fully with various law enforcement agencies that are investigating her ex-husband's family and the powerful interests they represent. https://t.co/Ao4l31iI06

Weisselberg has known Trump for more than 25 years and her lawyer says she is committed to telling what she knows about the Trump Organization’s corruption, including instances of tax and bank fraud, no matter how those involved try to silence her. Her attorney, Duncan Levin, confirmed that she is working with the SDNY on their ongoing investigation into Trump and his business dealings.
Levin told Business Insider:
‘Jennifer Weisselberg is committed to speaking the truth, no matter how difficult that may be. She will continue to cooperate fully with the various law enforcement agencies that are investigating her ex-husband’s family and the very powerful interests they represent.
‘Jennifer refuses to be silenced any longer by those who are conspiring to prevent her from sharing what she has learned over the past 25 years

In exclusive statements to The New Yorker, Weisselberg accused Trump of corruption and tax fraud as well as making inappropriate sexual comments to her and showing photos of naked women to attendants at a shiva, a Jewish mourning ceremony, at her father-in-law’s home. She says that Trump also made inappropriate advances toward her and her father-in-law was too devoted to Trump to speak up for her. She also says that Trump gave her and her husband an apartment rent-free for seven years, which her father-in-law wrote off as “corporate property,” a tactic used to avoid paying taxes. She reports a number of other instances for which Trump could be held criminally liable.
‘In Jennifer’s first extensive public remarks, she told me that, when someone works for the Trump Organization, “only a small part of your salary is reported. They pay you with apartments and other stuff, as a control tactic, so you can’t leave. They own you! You have to do whatever corrupt crap they ask.’

Unfortunately, Ms. Weisselberg also says that it’s unlikely that her former father-in-law will “flip” no matter how hard investigators press him to do so with evidence of his own crimes. Mr. Weisselberg, according to his former daughter-in-law, is enthralled by Trump and more devoted to him than his own wife and family.
‘Jennifer described her former father-in-law as being in Trump’s thrall: “His whole worth is “Does Donald like me today?” It’s his whole life, his core being. He’s obsessed. He has more feelings and adoration for Donald than for his wife.” Asked if Allen Weisselberg would flip under pressure, she said, “I don’t know. For Donald, it’s a business. But for Allen it’s a love affair.’
