13. Sounds like wishful thinking to me.

He doesn't say "we're not going to pay taxes on those payments." And payments like that would seem reasonable, even a boon to the people that receive them. I know my parents would've much preferred to not have to pay for college, rather than get a 3% - 5% raise.

Conspiracy to defraud the government requires intent. And Trump can always say that he trusted his CFO to make the proper tax payments.

In addition, Jennifer Weisselberg seems to be highly partisan, and she's divorced from the family and described her divorce as 'bitter'. She's clearly got an agenda, and she's been screaming to anyone that will listen about this stuff for months. She's given half a dozen interviews to journalists. If the prosecution had any desire to use her at trial, they'd have made sure she didn't give interviews, kept a low profile, and all kinds of stuff.
