DA had Trump Organization controller testify before special grand jury: Sources

Jeff McConney has testified in the probe of Trump’s finances, sources say.

One of the most senior officials in the Trump Organization has testified before a special grand jury empaneled by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office to hear evidence against former President Donald Trump and his company, sources with direct knowledge of the matter told ABC News.

Jeff McConney is among a number of witnesses that have already appeared before the special grand jury that will decide whether criminal charges are warranted against the former president, his company or any of its employees, the sources said.

McConney, who serves as a senior vice president and controller for the Trump Organization, is the first employee of the former president’s company called to testify, the sources said, and his testimony is a sign that prosecutors have burrowed deep into the company’s finances.

“Complex accounting issues are crucial to this investigation, as is the knowledge and intent of the people at the Trump Organization involved in these transactions,” said Daniel R. Alonso, the former chief assistant district attorney in Manhattan and now a partner in private practice at Buckley LLP.

“In any case like that, the two most important people — whether as targets or witnesses — are the company’s CFO and the company’s controller,” Alonso told ABC News.
