Donald Trump’s children would likely flip on their father if they faced criminal charges, Mary Trump, the former president’s niece, suggested. She told MSNBC on Thursday that Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Trump Jr. would be unlikely to show the same sort of loyalty to their father during a criminal case as Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization’s longtime chief financial officer, had. Weisselberg and the Trump Organization on Thursday were charged with several crimes stemming from an investigation into Trump’s financial arrangements. Weisselberg had refused to cooperate with investigators. A 25-page indictment suggested that other Trump Organization executives had benefited from the scheme investigators described, raising the prospect that Trump’s children could be next to face charges. Mary Trump told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that she thought Trump’s three eldest children “should be quite anxious right now.” She said that while her uncle would “expect the same kind and level of loyalty from them as he expects from Allen,” it would likely not be forthcoming.
