Report: 8 years of Trump tax returns subpoenaed by prosecutors

BTW

Prosecutors in New York subpoenaed eight years of both personal and corporate tax returns related to President Donald Trump, according to a new report.

The New York Times reports, citing sources with knowledge of the matter, the Manhattan district attorney’s office subpoenaed Trump’s accounting firm late last month.

The documents being sought by prosecutors are from both Trump’s personal tax returns and ones from the Trump Organization on both the state and federal level, according to the Times.

The prosecutors have been investigating hush-money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels made by Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal lawyer. The payments were made to cover up an alleged affair Daniels had with Trump.

Cohen pled guilty to campaign finance violations in August of last year.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee has sued Trump’s accounting firm seeking access to the president’s tax returns.

The accounting firm, Mazars USA, has not handed over the returns. When asked if the firm would comply, Mazars said it “will respect the legal process and fully comply with its legal obligations.”

Trump has long refused to publicly release his tax returns.
