The Trump Organization’s chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, has been granted immunity in connection with the investigation that led to Michael Cohen’s guilty plea. Weisselberg was called to testify before a federal grand jury. Loyola law professor Jessica Levinson joined CBSN to discuss the impact.

Republican better start looking for impeachment if they want to keep some of the seed in congress, other ways they no only loose the power of people, but the most people who are support them for many years.

Feels like we're living in the twilight zone.

Immunity? All they have to do to these guys to get all the info and more is just threaten to zero out their bank accounts as an additional penalty of being found guilty and the weaklings will sing like canaries.

WEISSLEBERGER IMMUNITY BIGGEST PROBLEM FOR MOBSTER DUMPH. DUMPH WAS IN DEBT TO THE TUNE OF 900.000.00 YES ALMOST ONE BILLION. SO HE FILED BANKRUPTCY.

Darth Mueller handing out get out of jail cards to anyone who may give tabloid dirt on the President? I thought this investigation was started, under false fisa court info, to find Russian collusion. This thing has gotten way out of control. The real investigation is going on in Utah people. Stay tuned for the indictments to be handed out by the white hats. Darth is going down.

The irony – a couple of weeks ago the future well-being of the presidency was being compared to the sinking of the Titanic with all sorts of references to the berg ahead – and now the berg that surely will deal the coup-de-grace to this floundering administration will be a Weisselberg.

5:30 Notice the one-many relation between the facts that the witness/defendant will explain with information and the number of possible cases that the government might use that information to prosecute later. Therefore "cooperation" obtains through the development of an investigation, not the prosecution of a case. The relation is not "converse" or "convertible" logically, in that many secrets might come to light by means simply of granted immunities; which affects the status of any conspiracy the government might investigate among the players involved. The agreement at the basis of a conspiracy might obtain between or among the individuals being investigated, so if you haven't had voluntary cooperation from someone granted immunity prior to evidence of that conspiracy, then the liability remains civil or criminal for that witness according to the materiality of this information, something distinct from the proximity of the causes for action or the counts of alleged guilt. The proximate cause of an action or a crime is closer to the the effect; the material causes speak openly to the motives involved. The trials should correspond to certain events, not similar charges, but a conspiracy explains similar effects, not separate subjects.

Compare how Trumpanpo's CEO Alan Weisselberg strongly resembles Heinrich Himmler , head of Hitlers SS. Ya might have yo do a little work looking up these two Nazi's

Georgie Porgie · August 25, 2018 at 5:45 pm

Feeding frenzy in 3……2….

John Poole · August 25, 2018 at 5:48 pm

It may take a long time to put all the pieces together (with constant harassment by collaborators and Republicans), but if Robert Mueller can cut out this cancer from our political system and prove to his most stubborn defenders that Trump is simply a crook, it will be worth all the effort.

rant404 · August 25, 2018 at 6:32 pm

Comrade Donald is wondering if it's too late to send tricycle riding Jared over to Weisselberg's house with $130,000 and a NDA. (Cohen is no longer available.)

There are more "flippers" (Orange Sphincter's term) in the swamp than flippers in a pod of dolphins.

You people got it all wrong. When he says that he knows and he hires the best people, he didn’t specify the best people at what.

Steve Long · August 26, 2018 at 7:45 pm

Protect Weisselberg and keep an eye on the Russian's coming to America, Putin may send someone over to get Weisselberg and Cohen.

Hoffnung Verloren · August 28, 2018 at 10:55 pm

Why isn't Obama in prison for directing the FBI to clear Clinton and begin a bogus investigation against Trump?
