Its longtime chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, pleaded guilty and testified for the prosecution. The Trump Organization has pleaded not guilty. Its lawyers have argued that an outside accountant from Mazars USA who prepared tax returns for the company, Donald Bender, should have caught Weisselberg's fraud and blown the whistle. Bender "turned a blind eye to Allen Weisselberg's wrongdoing," defense lawyer Susan Necheles said in her closing argument on Thursday. Mazars cut ties with the Trump Organization earlier this year.

Trump’s post came after Twitter CEO Elon Musk promoted a series of tweets Friday revealing internal documents about how the company handled a New York Post article about Hunter Biden in 2020. While he said he “vehemently disagrees” with the former president’s statement, Turner did not directly answer the question, even after host Margaret Brennan pressed repeatedly. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., a vocal opponent of Trump who serves on the House Jan. 6 committee, called Trump's statement “insane." Meanwhile, Democrats swiftly rebuked Trump’s statement shortly after it was posted. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he “vociferously” condemns Trump’s remarks and urged his colleagues on both sides of the aisle to do the same.
Those requests came from both the White House and the Biden campaign during the election cycle. The long Twitter thread, dubbed "The Twitter Files," was hyped up by Elon Musk, the social media platform's billionaire owner and self-styled "free speech absolutist." Trump's White House, however, was the government, but Musk did not address reporting that said they also made and were granted requests. Taibbi did not provide evidence the White House — or the Biden campaign — "ordered" or coerced Twitter into removing content. Taibbi did not include any additional details or an example of a request from the White House.

Rep. Jeffries dismissed Sen. McConnell calling him an "election denier" over his criticism of Trump. Last week, McConnell remarked that Jeffries "baselessly said the 2016 election was 'illegitimate.'" "He'll do what he does, and I want to stay focused on fighting for the people," Jeffries told CNN. "For example, the newly-elected incoming leader of the House Democrats is a past election denier who baselessly said the 2016 election was 'illegitimate' and suggested that we had a 'fake' president. I supported the certification of Donald Trump's election," he continued to say.

Trust in women leaders is decreasing across the globe, a new study found. Experts say that the normalization of sexism, as well as perceived failures of some female leaders, may be why.

WASHINGTON, Dec 1 (Reuters) - The chairman of the U.S. Congress committee that has been given access to Donald Trump's tax returns on Thursday said he supported legislation requiring future presidents to make such information public. "I think it would be fair to say that it would be a good idea for presidents down the road to be required to release their tax returns," House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal told reporters. Neal added that he did not know whether U.S. presidential candidates should be included in such a requirement. Neal used his comments to reporters to dispute a "false" suggestion that Democrats on the panel on Thursday were meeting to review the Trump tax returns. The U.S. Supreme Court on Nov. 22 cleared the release of those returns to Neal's committee, which has sought them for nearly four years.
"The entire defense strategy here is to promote the notion that Weisselberg did it for Weisselberg," Steinglass told the jury in a New York state court in Manhattan. Steinglass told jurors that Trump executives other than Weisselberg were involved, saying the company's chief operating officer and a former general counsel received Christmas bonuses as if they were independent contractors.

At a November 16 press conference, DeSantis told people to "chill out" about a possible GOP civil war between him and the former president.
In closings, a prosecutor took the extraordinary step of accusing Trump of "sanctioning tax fraud."

President Joe Biden denounced antisemitism and took a veiled jab at Donald Trump days after the former president dined with rapper Ye, who has made a string of recent antisemitic comments, and white nationalist Nick Fuentes. Trump, the presumptive frontrunner for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, had dinner last week with Ye and Fuentes at his Mar-a-Lago club, sparking widespread condemnation. "I love Jewish people, but I also love Nazis," Ye told Jones on the show, also praising what he considered Hitler's contributions to society. Trump has not yet condemned the men he had dinner with at Mar-a-Lago, and he claimed not to know who the white nationalist Fuentes was. Sen.
