The indict­ments against the Trump Orga­ni­za­tion and its CFO, Allen Weis­sel­berg, will remain sealed until Thurs­day after­noon, leav­ing the spe­cif­ic charges against them unclear. Ear­li­er Wednes­day, peo­ple famil­iar with the case said the charges were relat­ed to alle­ga­tions of unpaid tax­es on ben­e­fits for Trump Orga­ni­za­tion executives.

Weis­sel­berg is expect­ed to sur­ren­der Thurs­day morn­ing at the office of Man­hat­tan Dis­trict Attor­ney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. (D), two peo­ple famil­iar with the plan said. He is expect­ed to be arraigned lat­er in the day in front of a state court judge. The Trump Orga­ni­za­tion will also be arraigned, rep­re­sent­ed in court by one of its attorneys.

The crim­i­nal charges against the Trump Orga­ni­za­tion and Weis­sel­berg are the first to result from the inves­ti­ga­tions by Vance and New York Attor­ney Gen­er­al Leti­tia James (D) and rep­re­sent a dra­mat­ic turn in the long-run­ning probes.

Attor­neys for both the Trump Orga­ni­za­tion and Weis­sel­berg declined to com­ment Wednesday.

Dur­ing an inter­view Wednes­day night with Fox News’s Sean Han­ni­ty, Trump called the myr­i­ad inves­ti­ga­tions — and, ear­li­er, impeach­ments — of him “all nonsense.”
