Investigators from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office probing Donald Trump’s financial affairs have seized several boxes of records from a former daughter-in-law of the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer.

Jennifer Weisselberg – was was previously married to the son of Trump CFO Allen Weisselberg – was spotted loading several boxes and a computer from her building into a car on Thursday, according to The Washington Post.

Her attorney said this week that she had in her possession “several boxes of materials” that were not in the hands of prosecutors.

A subpoena obtained by the newspaper ordered Ms Weisselberg to produce all of the records she possesses for ex-husband Barry Weisselberg’s “bank accounts and credit cards plus his statements of net worth and tax filings”.

District Attorney Cyrus Vance and New York Attorney General Letitia James are running parallel investigations into former president Donald Trump, his company and associates following fraud allegations, including whether Mr Trump and his company have manipulated property values for favourable tax advantages, loans and insurance rates.
