Donald Trump's civil fraud trial resuming with ex-CFO Allen Weisselberg on the witness stand

Allen Weisselberg, Donald Trump's longtime finance chief, is set to testify in the civil trial against Trump and the Trump Organization. Weisselberg, who recently served time in jail for tax fraud, is expected to testify about his role in preparing Trump's financial statements and allegations that he manipulated them to inflate Trump's net worth. Trump is not expected to attend the trial. Weisselberg has kept a low profile since leaving jail and has not given interviews or commented publicly. The trial concerns allegations of conspiracy, insurance fraud, and falsifying business records, with the New York Attorney General seeking $250 million in penalties and a ban on Trump doing business in New York. Weisselberg's association with the Trump family dates back to 1973, and he has been a key figure in Trump's financial operations.
