Manhattan DA Subpoenas Trump Tax Returns

HeadlineSep 17, 2019

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance has subpoenaed President Trump’s accounting firm Mazars USA for eight years of Trump’s “personal and corporate tax returns.” New York City prosecutors are investigating hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign and whether the reimbursements made to Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, were illegally accounted for as a legal expense. Trump has refused to release his tax records, claiming for years he is under audit. House Democrats have attempted to obtain his federal tax returns via subpoena from the Treasury Department and IRS but have so far been unsuccessful.
