The newspaper, citing people familiar with the matter, said prosecutors working under Manhattan Territory Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. have recently zeroed in on Weisselberg in an apparent effort to get him to cooperate with the wide-ranging offender probe.
Weisselberg, who has worked for Trump and his father, Fred Trump, throughout his career, has not been accused of wrongdoing. Spokespeople for the Trump Form did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.
Vance spokesman Danny Frost declined to comment on the Times backfire.
