Prosecutors working for the Manhattan district attorney on an investigation into the Trump Organization are increasingly focusing on the company’s chief financial officer, The New York Times reported Monday. 

Officials are concentrating more on Allen Weisselberg, who has managed the firm ’s finances for more than 20 years, in their probe into whether the former president and his company falsely manipulated property values for loans and tax and insurance advantages, among other matters.

Two people with knowledge of the matter told the Times that prosecutors for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance (D) have asked witnesses about Weisselberg and have asked at least one about his sons Barry and Jack Weisselberg, who are not expected to be the focus of the investigation.

Weisselberg, who started his career working for Trump’s father, has not been accused of wrongdoing thus far.
