Manhattan D.A. subpoenas eight years of Trump’s tax returns

Published

on

The Manhattan district attorney’s office has issued subpoenas requesting eight years’ worth of President Donald Trump’s personal and business tax returns, the New York Times reports.

According to the Times, the D.A.’s office subpoenaed the tax returns late last month after it opened a criminal investigation into the hush-money agreements Trump made with adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

The Times notes that the eight-year scope of the subpoena is “broad,” which may indicate that the office has “expanded its investigation beyond actions taken during the 2016 campaign.” However, at this time there is no concrete evidence that the Manhattan D.A. is looking at past improprieties.

The D.A.’s office has been probing the illegal hush money payments made by former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen to Daniels and McDougal during the 2016 election.

Cohen last year was sentenced to 36 months in prison for his role in arranging the illegal payments, along with other crimes. In his guilty plea, Cohen admitted to making the illegal payments “at the direction of” Trump, which seemingly implicated the president in committing a felony.

A senior economic and trade advisor to President Donald Trump has been busted for making up a person he can quote in his books and to justify his policies.

A shocking expose in The Chronicle of Higher Education revealed that Peter Navarro invented the name "Ron Vara," an anagram for Navarro, to justify his own opinions in his books.

The so-called Ron Vara has strong opinions, fortune-cookie-style quotes and an elaborate back story as "a military veteran and Harvard-trained economist who made seven figures in the stock market by investing in companies that do well during international crises," the report said.

With just two weeks on the job, an attorney for Rudy Giuliani is reportedly already parting ways with his client.

Earlier this month, Giuliani tapped former Watergate prosecutor Jon Sale to head up his legal team.

"He 100 percent did not do anything illegal," Sale insisted at the time.

CNN reporter Erica Orden revealed on Monday that Sale would no longer be working for Giuliani. No additional details were immediately available.

Sale's departure was announced soon after Giuliani said on Tuesday that he would not comply with subpoenas from House Democrats.
