NY District Attorney Receives Trump’s Tax Records – and There Are ‘Millions of Pages’

The paperwork is under the seal of the grand jury, so they will not be released to the public. Some of the information was given to the New York Times by the President’s niece, Mary Trump. The Times analysis showed that Trump had years of losses and questionable charitable deductions, among other findings.

The New York investigation is looking at whether Trump and the Trump Organization engaged in tax fraud, insurance fraud and financial fraud, primarily by providing false information to insurance companies, banks and investment funds about the value of different buildings, golf clubs, and other assets in the Trump portfolio. It is already known that there is a big difference between the information in the tax documents that the New York Times received and the way that President Trump talks about his financial position.
The District Attorney, Cy Vance, is also looking for documents from Deutsche Bank and other Trump business partners, and he is likely to call witnesses before the grand jury. Meanwhile, the Trump family’s financial situation remains in question.
