Michael Cohen, former President Trump’s ex-lawyer, weighed in on the Thursday indictment of the Trump Organization and its longtime chief financial officer, calling the charges “the tip of the iceberg.” “I don’t want people to think that this case is about Allen Weisselberg and an apartment and a free car and so on. It is substantially larger in scope than just that aspect. That is but the tip, it’s the tip of the iceberg, and there is so much more that’s going to be coming,” Cohen said during an interview on “CNN Newsroom.” New York City prosecutors charged the Trump Organization and Weisselberg with multiple fraud and conspiracy charges. Weisselberg, who surrendered to the Manhattan district attorney’s office early Thursday morning, pleaded not guilty to all 15 charges, which included tax fraud, conspiracy, grand larceny and falsifying business records. Prosecutors said he avoided paying taxes on about $1.76 million in income between 2005 and 2017.
