From the Wall Street Journal:
Allen Weisselberg, President Trump’s longtime financial gatekeeper, was granted immunity by federal prosecutors for providing information about Michael Cohen in the criminal investigation into hush-money payments for two women during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to people familiar with the matter.
Weisselberg had been subpoenaed by prosecutors earlier this year to testify before a grand jury as part of that probe.News of Weisselberg’s immunity deal follows a Thursday report that David Pecker, the chairman of publishing giant American Media, had also received federal immunity as part of the Cohen investigation.
Alan Futerfas, an attorney for the Trump Organization, declined a request for comment from CNBC. Neither the White House nor an attorney for Cohen immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.
