Mr. Weisselberg was called to testify before a federal grand jury earlier this year, the Journal said.
Mr. Cohen, who arranged hush-money payments before the November, 2016, US presidential election to at least two women who had said they had sex with Mr. Trump, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to campaign finance violations and other charges.
Weisselberg's name was invoked on an audio recording released by Cohen's attorney, Lanny Davis, that captured then-nominee Trump talking with Cohen about a payment to acquire the rights to the story of a former Playboy model who had said she and Trump had an affair, which the Trump campaign later denied.
One Trump Organization executive instructed an employee to incorrectly record the first of Cohen's payments in the company's books as a "retainer" for the months of January and February 2017, the documents show. This means Weisselberg is the accountant who filed Trump's tax returns. George says he worked at the Los Angeles office of the National Enquirer. After the Republican billionaire was elected president, Trump handed control of his business interests to his adult sons and Weisselberg.
Sharpening their legal and political defenses against the special counsel's Russian Federation probe, President Donald Trump's attorneys stressed Sunday, June 3, that they would contest any effort to force the president to testify in front of a grand jury but downplayed the idea that Trump could pardon himself.

A highly advanced heat shield just 4.5 inches (11.43 centimeters) thick was devised to keep the probe from melting. Parker Solar Probe, which is expected to complete 24 orbits of the Sun, will use Venus to adjust its course.
His involvement may also explain why federal authorities did not gain Cohen's full cooperation during their probe: They may not have needed to, given Weisselberg's superior knowledge of Trump's finances. "I have never gone anywhere with Donald".
Weisselberg got his start in the family business by working as an accountant for Trump's father and real estate magnate Fred Trump in the 1970s.
New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood has already sought a referral from the New York Department of Taxation and Finance to launch a criminal tax probe of Cohen's activities, according to a person familiar with the matter. The possibility of him answering questions from investigators poses a new danger for the president as federal prosecutors in Washington and Manhattan dig deeper into Trump's business affairs. The White House has dismissed the suit as politically motivated.
New York state prosecutors are said to be weighing possible criminal charges against the Trump Organization and two unnamed senior officials at the company, The New York Times reported Thursday night.
"I know stories involving, you know, marital discord", he said. It followed days of intense domestic pressure and negative headlines.
