NEW YORK (Reuters) -Jury selection is set to start on Monday in the tax fraud trial of former U.S. President Donald Trump's company, with the Trump Organization ready to accuse its longtime chief financial officer of lying in a case in which the business is accused of awarding "off the books" benefits to some senior executives.

Susan Necheles, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, said in a virtual hearing last week that challenging Weisselberg's admission that he hid information from the accountants would be part of the company's defense, according to a transcript of the proceeding held behind closed doors that was later unsealed.

"Weisselberg will testify he believed everything he was doing was wrong," Necheles said during the video conference. "We think he's lying and we want to show that."

No way TFG will ever admit he has been lying all along. He'll throw Weisselberg under the bus to try to save himself.

how stupid Eric the Lesser is to not realize he is the next one to go under the bus. If that kid had any brains at all he would have cut a cooperation deal with James. A desperate rat will kill and eat its' own young in order to survive. The Orange Ruski will chew through his own children in order to try and have what he wants. When he does he will also profess that there is nothing wrong with having done so. It's what sociopaths do.

Justice matters.
