Former daughter-in-law of Trump Organization officer says she's prepared to testify to grand jury

Washington (CNN)The former daughter-in-law of a Trump Organization officer said Monday evening that she is prepared to testify before a grand jury convened by Manhattan's top prosecutor as part of the investigation into former President Donald Trump's sprawling company.

Jennifer Weisselberg -- a former ballet dancer who was married to Barry, the son of Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization -- told CNN's Erin Burnett on "OutFront" that "we're prepared, and we are getting prepared" to testify before the panel.

Weisselberg declined to say whether she'd been formally asked to testify, and didn't offer a potential date or time.
Prosecutors in the Manhattan district attorney's office are likely to announce charges against Allen Weisselberg as soon as this week, people familiar with the matter told CNN. He is under scrutiny for benefits he received, including a company-funded apartment and car.

1. An indication that they are still investigating.

2. If she hasn't testified yet and the DA is "likely to announce charges as soon as this week"

then something doesn't add up.

Maybe the DA doesn't need her to testify b/c she's a peripheral drop in the bucket, so hasn't asked her and won't.
Maybe the DA thinks she's useless as a witness, so hasn't asked her and won't.
Maybe the DA has no intention to file charges and therefore doesn't want useful witnesses in front of the grand jury, so hasn't asked her and won't.
Or maybe this supposed timeline is bullshit.

We will find out eventually...

3. They're Not Getting Weisselberg

But they can get the Ex Daughter In Law. Wow! Time to celebrate justice!

4. How Did You Get That?

Testifying in a grand jury session doesn't mean one is a target.
It could simply mean she has material information that would further the case against Weisselberg & others.
This doesn't mean Weisselberg's off the hook. I think he's already heading to trial.
Not sure what you mean here.

5. I Mean They're Getting Her Testimony

I don't think her testimony is that big a deal. Her Ex-Father In Law's is, but she's on the outside looking in, despite what she may know.

I'm still not expecting any sort of justice, but hope to be proven wrong.

6. Now I Get You

I think this is putting more pressure on Weissellberg to cooperate.
I'm less pessimistic about him. I think he's in a world of hurt.

7. He's A LOYAL Servant & Cult Member

I just don't think he's going to cooperate. He truly knows where the bodies are buried.

He's still reporting for work each day. I sincerely doubt that would be allowed if it looked like he was going to turn on his boss.

He's part of the "inner circle," and I think anyone in that position will fall on the sword for Drumpf.

8. I Buy That

But, I think that sword he's falling on is real. And very sharp.
