1. I think he will cut a deal............

isn’t his son also implicated? That may be the “push” needed to get him to cooperate.

2. It sounds like he's going to keep quiet.

Don't ask me why.

25. I'm wondering if he's sick..I mean like terminal sick..

remaining quiet and doing prison time might not be that much of a threat..just a theory...

4. Or maybe get disappeared or Epsteined?

I actually don't think he will talk. He is one bitter hard cold old man. Take a look at the photo here, https://www.democraticunderground.com/100215576870

I was so disappointed to read that Teflon Don won't even be arrested.

10. He'll fall on his sword IMO

Apparently, his chief goal in life was to please Shitstain, who almost certainly still has a hold on him. He’s thinking by the time he has exhausted all options a Trump acolyte will have regained the White House and he’ll be pardoned. If that doesn’t pan out then he can always revisit his strategy.

15. RSO

He's being charged with State, not Federal crimes. No Trump acolyte in the WH can help him.

24. Forgot that

Pivot to other “inducements” that will keep him on the team, ie threats from any number of pro-Trump sources.

11. He won't talk.

Just my guess. I bet the charges -- and thereby the penalty he is risking by going to trial -- will be underwhelming.

12. If the charges are just not paying taxes on some fringe benefits

--which has been reported so far -- there would not be much reason to talk. Those charges are not prticuolarly serious at the federal level.

13. Loyal Servant & Cult Member

He won't talk.

Drumpf won't be indicted.

Those are my predictions. Hope to be proven wrong, but I know that this is America.

17. I think he will appeal any conviction and get away with paying a fine. Afterwards, the media

will spend a few days droning on about how the system favors the wealthy and then move on to the next shiny object.

18. Think it will end like Michael Cohen. He talked and cooperated, yet nothing touched trump. n/t

What exactly do we think Weisselberg will say that will take trump down? So far, it sounds like a few people in the Organization will get hit with avoiding taxes by not reporting some taxable perks.

19. He has to get a solid witness protection deal

Weisselberg was never as crazy as the people he worked for.

On the other hand, it's possible that the DA can make this case without Weisselberg's testimony. How much evidence do they really have? Maybe it's enough to take them all down.

We'll see.

The whole thing's a clown show.

26. He might not talk until they threaten to arrest his son for failing to pay income tax on the

condo deal gifted by Trump or something else that is related. The son's former wife is blabbing to the prosecutors so the house of cards is going to collapse. If Weisselberg protects Trump and goes to jail he's one of the stupidest people on earth. Trump will not be elected again and there will be no pardon. Weisselberg will end up dying in jail.

29. That's the beauty of our checks and balances of power: No one person can make anything happen

so grifting requires the assistance of many people who later can turn state's evidence. I wonder if that wasn't the original thinking back in the 1780's.

28. They'll have to charge him with something more serious than what's being talked about.

Failure to pay taxes on fringe benefits does not carry are serious weight. We'd be lucky to get a fine and probation out of those charges.

30. Michael Cohen who has been through the federal prosecution

wringer already says Weisselberg will flip. Says Weisselberg doesn't know how much pressure the prosecutors can apply when they want to do so.
