The former daughter-in-law of Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg on Thursday turned over monetary records to investigators working for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. in response to a grand jury subpoena, The Washington Post reported.

Jennifer Weisselberg was married to Weisselberg’s son, Barry Weisselberg, from 2004 to 2018. She has beforehand stated that she is cooperating with prosecutors in Vance’s workplace and claimed to have several boxes of materials obtained during divorce proceedings to offer to investigators.

The subpoena requested for Jennifer Weisselberg to show over all supplies in her possession related to her ex-husband’s financial institution accounts, bank cards, statements of internet value and tax filings, in keeping with The Washington Post, which obtained a duplicate of the order.

The subpoena particularly requested for supplies associated to the Trump Organization and an ice rink that the corporate runs in central park, Wollman Rink, The Washington Post reported. Barry Weisselberg manages the rink for the Trump Organization, in keeping with the newspaper.

Vance, who’s investigating former President Donald Trump‘s funds, has not too long ago appeared to zero in on Allen Weisselberg, presumably as half of an effort to get him to cooperate. The New York Times reported last month that Vance’s workplace had subpoenaed Allen Weisselberg’s private financial institution records.

Vance has stated that he’s investigating potential financial institution and insurance coverage fraud associated to the Trump Organization. He obtained years of Trump’s closely guarded personal tax returns and different monetary records in February after a protracted authorized battle that twice reached the Supreme Court.

Trump has referred to as the investigation a witch hunt. Vance’s workplace has not introduced any fees in opposition to Trump, Barry or Allen Weisselberg. Neither Barry nor Allen Weisselberg responded to requests for remark submitted to the Trump Organization on Thursday.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Jennifer Weisselberg stated, “My knowledge of the documents and my voice connect the flow of money from various banks and from personal finances that bleed directly into the Trump Organization.”

Duncan Levin, her lawyer, stated in an announcement that “Jennifer Weisselberg is cooperating and being fully transparent with prosecutors. She has given them documents and continues to do so and is committed to doing everything she can to assist in the open investigations”
