The announcement followed a busy day of legal developments yesterday involving former president Donald Trump and his associates. A federal judge said that he is “inclined” as early as next week to unseal some of the affidavit central to the recent FBI search of Trump’s Florida home. And Allen Weisselberg, the longtime top financial officer of Trump’s company, pleaded guilty to committing more than a dozen felonies, including criminal tax fraud and grand larceny.
