Who is Allen Weisselberg, Trump's loyal money man?

"Weisselberg's family is deeply entwined in the company. His son Barry has managed the Trump Wollman Rink in Central Park. Another son, Jack, is an executive director at Ladder Capital, the biggest lender to the Trump Organization behind Deutsche Bank. Ladder had more than $100 million lent out to Trump's company last year, accordin g to the president's financial disclosure report."

The Teleprompter Test: why Trump's populism is often scripted | World news

1 Share
New research into Donald Trump’s speeches reveal why the president’s scripted brand of populism doesn’t come easy
Donald Trump spent much of his presidential campaign mocking his rivals for relying on teleprompters – until, reluctantly, he was forced to do the same. “If you run for president you shouldn’t be allowed to use teleprompters,” he complained. “Because you don’t even know if the guy’s smart.”
But intelligence isn't the only trait that politicians can fake by relying on automated scripts. New analysis suggests Trump struggles to express populist ideas unless he’s reading remarks prepared by his scriptwriters.
The research by Team Populism, a network of political scientists, analysed Trump’s speeches – both scripted, and off-the-cuff – looking for three core elements of populist discourse.

Manichean world view

Depicting a moralised battle between good and evil.

People-centrism

Portraying a romanticised vision of a common popular will

Anti-elitism

Blames the people’s difficulties on a malign establishment that had subverted the system for their benefit
This piece is best experienced with sound
Kirk Hawkins, an associate professor at Brigham Young University, said there was a “dramatic difference” in the language in Trump’s speeches, depending on whether or not they were scripted. “Trump’s speeches with teleprompters all have longer words, longer sentences, and less frequent use of his pet words. And they have much higher levels of populism,” he said. “This is powerful evidence that Trump’s populism is not entirely his own.”
No other Republican candidate, aside from Ted Cruz, scored as highly as Trump in the populism grade that researchers gave speeches. But what really stood out was the remarkable inconsistency in levels of rightwing populist discourse in Trump’s speeches.
Levente Littvay, an associate professor at Central European University, who also worked on the study, said the president might be best described as a half populist. Others may suggest Trump’s reliance on an automated script for his populism warrants the creation of a new label: telepopulist.
Hawkins and Littvay also identified the specific reason why Trump appeared to stumble when off-script. The president tended to reliably score high on the metric of anti-elitism, lashing out at the so-called Washington swamp or attacking America’s financial heavyweights, even when ad-libbing. But unlike more consistent populists, Trump struggled, whenever he was speaking without a script, to deliver a message that was also people-centric.
“In the extemporaneous speeches he doesn’t really talk a lot about the people; he’ll talk about himself, about people on his team, but he doesn’t say things like, ‘Only you, the people, can rescue our country’. Instead it’s more about him: ‘I’m here, I’m going to do this, my team, we’re awesome’,” Hawkins said. “He is consistently anti-establishment (but) the pro-people part changes depending on whether he’s coached or not.”
The research suggests Trump’s populism should really be credited to the likes of key advisors like Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, and Vince Haley, who is head of speechwriting at the White House.
Bannon and Miller have strong reputations for populism. Evidence of their influence creeping into Trump’s speeches include the Republican national convention speech in 2016 (“I have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up on people who cannot defend themselves”), and an address in West Palm Beach, Florida, that year (“The corrupt establishment knows that we are a great threat to their criminal enterprise. They know that if we win, their power is gone, and it’s returned to you, the people, will be”).
Bannon, a former executive director of Breitbart News, told the Guardian that Trump’s 2015 speechwriting teams were typically small. “It’s a couple of people and Stephen was clearly speechwriter; I would consider myself the architect of the speeches and Trump really a co-writer. It’s very much in his voice. He will change it up and change the cadence and change the sequencing up until the last second.”
Trump, he said, was often provided a speech outline before a rally and then told: “If you want to take a riff, take a riff, and that’s what he does best, when it’s impromptu”. Referring to the teleprompter – a thin, barely-visible glass lectern – Bannon said: “The audience loves it when he goes off the glass and personalises the speech.”
Benjamin Moffitt, a senior lecturer at the Australian Catholic University, who was not involved in the research, said while analysis of the the content of Trump’s speeches was useful, it was also important to consider the symbolic aspects of his delivery. He argued: “Populism is not just about what political actors say, but also how they act.” He gave the example of the occasions on the campaign trail when Trump theatrically ditched his teleprompter, on one occasion even knocking over his glass lectern to raucous applause.
Iactuallylikedmyspeechbetterwithoutteleprompters.WhatIlikeaboutit...waitaminute,letme...youknowwhat,Ilikeitbetterwithouttheteleprompter
“Trump making a big deal out of abandoning the teleprompter on several occasions should be read as something of a populist act,” Moffitt said. Such gestures, he said, were intended to convey that Trump – in contrast to his stiff and scripted rivals – was an entertaining and authentic figure who had common with his audience than professional politicians controlled by their aides. “While critics may see Trump’s ‘gaffes’ and ‘off-script’ remarks as mistakes, they miss the point – these kind of stylistic acts are part and parcel of his populism.”
The latest example occurred last week, during Trump’s speech before the Conservative Political Action Committee. “You know I'm totally off script right now,” he told his audience. “And this is how I got elected, by being off script. True. And if we don’t go off script, our country is in big trouble, folks. Because we have to get it back.”
Trump may have a unique brand of performative populism, but he has also betrayed a misunderstanding of what the term actually means. Back in 2010, when Trump was considering a presidential bid, Bannon visited him in New York. According to Bannon, when he encouraged Trump to run as a populist, explaining the virtues of a disruptive candidacy pitting the common people against nefarious elite, Trump replied: “That’s what I am, a popularist.” Bannon tried to correct him but Trump insisted on “popularist”.
And in remarks last year at a rally in Fargo, North Dakota, Trump even toyed with something akin to reverse-populism when he told supporters that they were the country’s real elite.
Wegotmoremoney,wegotmorebrains,wegotbetterhouses,apartments,wegotnicerboats.We'resmarterthantheyare,andtheysay"theelite".We'retheelite,you'retheelite
It was not the first time Trump had wanted to use this conceit, turning populism on its head and actually praising the elite. “One of the arguments we used to have is about the use of ‘elites’,” Bannon conceded. “He hated Miller and I going after elites because he said, ‘What you’re saying is, we’re not elites. We are elites. I’m the elites. My audience is an elite audience.’ And I said that’s not actually technically correct. He wasn’t having it.”

Who is Allen Weisselberg, Trump's loyal money man?

1 Share
NEW YORK — Allen Weisselberg is seemingly everything his longtime boss, Donald Trump, isn't.
The modest money man has always been content to work behind the scenes, with no hint of flash, braggadocio or ostentatious spending.
He lived in the same three-bedroom ranch house in suburban Long Island with the same woman for decades, shows up for work at Trump Tower every day and almost always goes to the same spot down the block for lunch. The bald, bespectacled, 71-year-old chief financial officer of the Trump Organization is known for being loyal, unobtrusive and, well, somewhat dull.

AP
But Weisselberg also has his name on all manner of checks and documents of the company going back decades, is familiar with its tax returns, its lenders and investors, and is said to track every penny going in and out. And given what he knows, the prospect of him testifying in federal probes and congressional investigations of Trump's business empire could pose a new danger to president from one of his longest-serving confidants.
"He was like from central casting, a green-eyeshaded accountant," said Gwenda Blair, who interviewed Weisselberg for her book, "The Trumps: Three Generations of Builders and a President."
"He was not even remotely colorful, eyes cast down on the spreadsheet and the calculator — click, click, click," she said. "He's been in the inner, inner circle, but he is so colorless that he faded into the woodwork. That was his job, not to be noticed."
Weisselberg, who through the Trump Organization did not respond to requests for an interview, may not be able to keep that up much longer.
At least one of the Democratic-led House committees investigating Trump's finances, hush-money payments and taxes is seeking to question Weisselberg following Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's explosive testimony last week in which he dropped Weisselberg's name nearly 20 times.
Weisselberg also spoke to federal prosecutors last year as part of the investigation in which Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign-finance violations for payments to buy the silence of two women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump — porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal.
Weisselberg has not been charged in that case, but Cohen has said he was deeply involved and ultimately the one who decided how to secretly reimburse Cohen for a $130,000 payment to Daniels.
For his grand jury testimony in the Cohen case, Weisselberg received limited immunity, which would preclude any truthful statements from being used against him in a criminal case. Federal prosecutors in New York have declined to say whether they are investigating Weisselberg himself.
Weisselberg started working for the Trump family in Brooklyn in 1973 under Fred Trump, Donald's father, and was there for all the son's big successes and flops.
He was overseeing the books when Donald built Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, bought up several casinos in Atlantic City, and then drove them into bankruptcy. And he was there when Trump rose again as a reality-TV businessman and began slapping his name on hotels and residential towers owned by others. It was during that era that Weisselberg made a rare, if quiet, public appearance — as a guest judge on a 2004 episode of "The Apprentice."
He was so trusted by Trump that he was named as the only non-family member to help Trump sons Eric and Don Jr. manage the trust the president set up to hold his business assets while he is in office.
Weisselberg's family is deeply entwined in the company. His son Barry has managed the Trump Wollman Rink in Central Park. Another son, Jack, is an executive director at Ladder Capital, the biggest lender to the Trump Organization behind Deutsche Bank. Ladder had more than $100 million lent out to Trump's company last year, according to the president's financial disclosure report.
As is the case with his boss, Weisselberg was registered as a Democrat for years, according to the research service Nexis. He gave money to campaigns by New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and New York Gov. Mario Cuomo before switching to the Republican Party for the 2016 election.
But that is pretty much where the similarities to his boss end.
Weisselberg has no Twitter or Facebook account, though he does maintain a LinkedIn page with one "connection" listed — Michael Calamari, a former bodyguard turned Trump Organization's chief operating officer.
He has bought a few properties over the years beside a home in Wantagh, New York. He has a vacation home in Boynton Beach, Florida, that he purchased 17 years ago for $282,000. He bought two condominiums at Trump-branded buildings in Manhattan but sold them.
Weisselberg barely merits a mention in the many Trump biographies, nor in the many written by the man himself. He doesn't appear in "The Art of the Deal," for instance.
Trump's daughter, Ivanka, told The Wall Street Journal in a profile before the 2016 election that Weisselberg "is deeply passionate, fiercely loyal and has stood alongside my father and our family" for decades.
Weisselberg has also been tied to several Trump ventures tarnished by scandal. He reviewed the finances at the now-defunct Trump University, the real estate school hit by a fraud lawsuit that the president settled for $25 million. He was a director of the shuttered Trump Foundation, which is being sued by New York's attorney general for allegedly tapping charitable donations for political and business purposes.
And in testimony before the House Oversight Committee last week, Cohen said Weisselberg knew about what Cohen said were falsified financial statements that Trump used to dupe insurers and investors. Cohen also said that it was Weisselberg who decided that the hush money that Cohen paid out of his own pocket to the porn star should be reimbursed in installments spread out over 12 months to "hide what the payment was."
And Weisselberg is likely to know the answer to the biggest question since his boss pulled off his surprise election to the presidency: Just how much is Trump worth?
Trump testified in a 2007 deposition that Weisselberg was the one who valued his properties and other assets.
"My numbers are pretty in line with what he says," Trump testified.

Report: Government kept tabs on journalists, 'instigators'

1 Share
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The U.S. government ran an operation to screen journalists, activists and others while investigating last year's migrant caravan from Mexico, a San Diego TV station reported Wednesday, citing leaked documents.
Dossiers that included photos from their passports or social media accounts, date of birth and other details were kept in a database and some freelance journalists had alerts placed on their passports and were flagged for secondary screenings at customs points, the station KNSD-TV said.
One freelance photojournalist was denied entry to Mexico for reasons that were never stated, the station reported.
The documents, in the form of dossiers and screenshots, were provided to NBC 7 Investigates by a Homeland Security source on the condition of anonymity, the station reported. Those listed as warranting secondary screening included 10 journalists — seven of them U.S. citizens — a U.S. attorney and 47 people from various countries labeled as organizers, instigators or "unknown," the station said.
The intelligence-gathering efforts were done under the umbrella of "Operation Secure Line," which was designed to monitor the caravan of thousands of people who began making their way north from Central America late last year to seek asylum in the United States, the source told the TV station.
A Customs and Border Protection statement sent to The Associated Press on Wednesday said the extra security followed a breach of a border wall in San Diego on Nov. 25 in a violent confrontation between caravan members and border agents. The confrontation closed the nation's busiest border crossing for five hours on Thanksgiving weekend.
Such "criminal events...involving assaults on law enforcement and a risk to public safety, are routinely monitored and investigated by authorities," the statement said.
"It is protocol following these incidents to collect evidence that might be needed for future legal actions and to determine if the event was orchestrated."
The statement didn't address specifics of why journalists would be on the list to have their passports flagged.
The American Civil Liberties Union condemned the operation.
"This is an outrageous violation of the First Amendment," attorney Esha Bhandari said. "The government cannot use the pretext of the border to target activists critical of its policies, lawyers providing legal representation, or journalists simply doing their jobs."
The documents, dated Jan. 9, are titled "San Diego Sector Foreign Operations Branch: Migrant Caravan FY-2019, Suspected Organizers, Coordinators, Instigators and Media." The source said the material was used by agents from the CBP and other agencies, including some San Diego FBI agents.
Two freelance photojournalists confirmed to the station that the information in their dossiers was accurate. Both were pulled in for secondary questioning at border crossings and one, Kitra Cahana, eventually was stopped in Mexico, denied entry and had to fly back to the U.S. They were not told why they were targeted.
One dossier was on Nicole Ramos, the refugee director and attorney for Al Otro Lado, a law center for migrants and refugees in Tijuana, Mexico. It included details such as the kind of car she drives and her mother's name, KNSD-TV reported.
"The document appears to prove what we have assumed for some time, which is that we are on a law enforcement list designed to retaliate against human rights defenders who work with asylum seekers and who are critical of CBP practices that violate the rights of asylum seekers," Ramos told the station by email.

On the books, the Trump family business is real estate, resorts and hotel management. The true family business is self-dealing, wrecking institutional norms and humiliating any who get in their way, then lying about ever having bent the rules.
Erstwhile Trump fixer Michael Cohen testified to as much in his congressional hearing last week, potentially implicating both Don Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump in the Trump Tower Moscow discussions.
Now come reports that President Trump overruled multiple individuals, including former chief of staff John Kelly and ex-counsel Don McGahn, to grant his son-in-law Jared Kushner a top-secret security clearance. This, despite opposition by multiple career White House security specialists, who no doubt worried about Kushner’s many foreign business entanglements.

Kelly wrote a contemporaneous memo disclosing Trump ordered the approval. A separate McGahn memo disclosed that the CIA raised strenuous objections. The latter’s objection is especially disconcerting given Kushner’s central role in shaping Middle East policy.
In January, the President claimed he “was never involved” with the clearances. “I don’t want to get involved in that stuff.” Uh huh.
Ever the scion, Ivanka last month said, “the President had no involvement pertaining to my clearance or my husband’s, zero.”
She further contended the reason Kushner’s long-delayed clearance was held up was a “backlog.” In truth, he had to revise his application multiple times due to “forgotten” financial holdings and, of course, the old standby – undisclosed meetings with Russian officials.
Remember how a candidate for President complained about the system being rigged?
