CNN: Trump seemingly acknowledges facts of prosecutors’ case against Trump Organization while criticizing charges over ‘fringe benefits’
Former President Donald Trump appeared to acknowledge the core facts in New York prosecutors’ case against the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer even as he characterized the charges as a political attack aimed at him.
Trump said, “Murders, OK; human trafficking, no problem. But fringe benefits, you can’t do that.”
Fmr. Pres. Trump downplayed and then essentially admitted to Trump org. tax crimes. 🧐 “This is more than fringe benefits fraud,” says @joycewhitevance, “This is a 15 year conspiracy…not some sort of garden variety activity.” #Velshi pic.twitter.com/X0Xzsh37BJ
