Well, we know that Ivanka Trump got quite significant sums paid to her as non-employee compensation that freed the Trump Organization from paying part of her taxes, and it put her in a status that I think the IRS would have lots of questions about. — Michael D'Antonio, who wrote a biography of Trump

Ivanka Trump could be the next target for Manhattan's district attorney, according to a former federal prosecutor
  • Ivanka Trump could be the next target for Manhattan's district attorney, according to a former federal prosecutor.
  • Manhattan's DA is investigating whether Donald Trump and his family committed financial crimes.
  • Trump's long-serving deputy Alan Weisselberg was last week charged with tax crimes.
Cynthia Alksne, a legal analyst for MSNBC and a former Assistant District Attorney in the Brooklyn, NY District Attorney's office, said Monday that the indictment presented in Weisselberg's case indicated that Ivanka Trump could be next to face charges.

"This is an opening salvo," Alksne told MSNBC's Alicia Menendez on Monday, per Raw Story.

"Ordinarily or quite often, New York State indictments are not as detailed as this. The prosecutors went to an amazing amount of effort to show Weisselberg: "We have everything we need."

"They're really not only pressuring him to flip, but the amount of detail in this indictment tells me they're trying to tell other people you have got to flip because we have everything," she said.

Speculation has been rife as to the identity of the "Unindicted Co-conspirator #1" referenced in the indictment unsealed against Weisselberg last week, and Alksne speculated that it was more likely to be one of Donald Trump's children than the former president himself.

She said: "I would focus it on the kids ... We've heard a lot of this reporting about Ivanka Trump getting consulting fees, or things she may or may not have done. That looks to be like the next place."

Michael D'Antonio, who wrote a biography of Trump, also speculated Sunday that Ivanka could be in legal trouble.

"The other person who I think is in peril is Ivanka Trump," D'Antonio told CNN's Jim Acosta. "One of the things that Allen Weisselberg is in trouble for is taking money as a contractor and then claiming self-employed status so that he can get some of the retirement benefits that the tax code allows for self-employed people."
