Judge Dismisses Trump Attempt to Shield Tax Docs from House; NY Probe into Trump Org. Continues

HeadlineDec 15, 2021

A federal judge blocked a bid by the former president to shield his tax returns to lawmakers on the House Ways and Means Committee. The Treasury refused to hand over the documents during Trump’s presidency.

Meanwhile, Trump’s longtime accountant, as well as a loan officer at Deutsche Bank, reportedly testified in recent weeks before a New York grand jury as part of the Manhattan district attorney’s ongoing probe into financial crimes by the Trump Organization. The DA’s Office is looking into whether Trump intentionally misled investors about the value of his assets.
