Jury Deliberating in Trump Organization's Criminal Tax Fraud Trial

This follows four weeks of testimony

Jurors in the Trump Organization's tax fraud trial started deliberating on Monday, following four weeks of testimony about executive pay practices at Donald Trump's real estate company that prosecutors said amounted to a criminal scheme that went on for at least 15 years.

During approximately four hours of deliberations on Monday, jurors sent one note to the judge requesting clarification on one of the charges. The jury will pick resume on Tuesday.

The former U.S. president's company was charged with paying personal expenses for some executives without reporting the income, and compensating them as if they were independent contractors. Its longtime chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, pleaded guilty and testified for the prosecution.
