Allen Weisselberg, the tax-dodging Trump Organization chief financial officer who refused to flip on his boss and chose jail instead, was released from New York City’s Rikers Island jail on Wednesday.
The 75-year-old, whose family members feared he would have a difficult time in the violence-ridden and filthy jail complex, spent his entire stay there at a relatively docile jail subdivision reserved for the sick and elderly, called West Facility.
The accountant had been former President Donald Trump’s trusted money man for decades, cutting real estate deals and managing cash flow—for a company that was convicted of tax fraud at trial and is now under investigation for maintaining fake business records, inflating property values, and defrauding banks and insurance companies.
