Federal prosecutors granted an immunity deal to Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, in their probe that secured a guilty plea from Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, it was revealed Friday.

Weisselberg is the executive who runs the Trump Organization along with Don Jr. and Eric under a trust created by the president after the 2016 election.

He is both a bookkeeper and a key executive running the organization who is familiar with major aspects of the organization.

The Wall Street Journal reported his immunity deal – just a day after it was revealed National Enquirer publisher David Pecker has received an immunity deal himself. Both men were involved in talks to secure a $150,000 payment for a former Playboy model who claims she slept with Donald Trump.

Cohen spoke to Weisselberg about negotiations with former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

‘I’ve spoken to Allen Weisselberg about how to set the whole thing up. So, I’m all over that. And, I spoke to Allen about it,” Cohen told Trump in a tape recording from September 2016 obtained by CNN.

And Weisselberg was identified as the executive from whom Cohen sought reimbursement from company funds after using a home equity loan to pay $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels.

It was not immediately clear what was the extent or nature of the immunity deal he secured. Weisselberg was subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury investigating Cohen earlier this year.

His grant of immunity may have been related to cooperation in limited matters relating to Cohen. But word of the immunity deal raised immediate prospects that prosecutors had secured the cooperation of someone with intimate knowledge of how the Trump Organization operates.

Weisselberg began working for Trump’s father, Fred, in the 1970s

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators handed off the Cohen case to the Southern District of New York. Previous reports have shown investigators have shown an interest in some Trump Organization business that Weisselberg may conceivably have information about, such as discussion of a Trump Tower Moscow during the 2016 campaign.
