Allen Weisselberg's former daughter-in-law Jennifer told New York prosecutors that Donald Trump offered to cover her children's private school fees instead of a raise, a report claims.

The ex-wife of Barry Weisselberg made the claims in a Zoom interview with investigators on June 25, according to The Daily Beast, and if true could directly implicate Trump in the ongoing tax fraud case.

Prosecutors claim that the Trump Organization was using a scheme to pay people staffers with perks such as company cars and apartments in order to avoid paying taxes.

The Trump Organization and the former president have denied the allegations and insist it is part of a political witch hunt.

The former president claims the criminal investigations are part of a bid to hurt a potential run for president in 2024, which he has still not confirmed. 

She claims she told prosecutors that in January 2012 she watched in Trump Tower as her husband Barry discussed compensation with Trump, the report suggests.

Trump allegedly told Barry that he wouldn't be getting a pay rise, but his children would receive tuition to the elite $47,540-a-year Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School. 

'Don’t worry, I’ve got it covered,' Trump allegedly told Jennifer during the meeting.

The Daily Beast reported that Carey Dunne, the Manhattan DA's general counsel, and Mark Pomerantz, a former mob prosecutor and white collar crime specialist brought in to help the sweeping investigation, were on the call with Jennifer. 

Prosecutors are already believed to have combed through documents from Jennifer Weisselberg's divorce in 2018. 

Her ex Barry Weisselberg is the longtime manager of the Wollman ice rink in Central Park.

There are previous reports that when he testified during their split in 2018 he described how his Trump Organization CFO father covered the cost of their Upper East Side apartment, while their salary didn't change for five years.
