D.A. Is Investigating Trump and His Company Over Fraud, Filing Suggests

Source: New York Times

The Manhattan district attorney’s office suggested on Monday that it has been investigating President Trump and his company for possible bank and insurance fraud, a significantly broader inquiry than the prosecutors have acknowledged in the past.

The office of the district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., made the disclosure in a new federal court filing arguing Mr. Trump should have to comply with its subpoena seeking eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns. Mr. Trump has asked a judge to declare the subpoena invalid.

The prosecutors did not directly identify the focus of their inquiry but said that “undisputed” news reports last year about Mr. Trump’s business practices make it clear that the office had a legal basis for the subpoena.

The reports, including investigations into the president’s wealth and an article on the congressional testimony of his former lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, said that the president may have illegally inflated his net worth and the value of his properties to lenders and insurers. Lawyers for Mr. Trump have said he did nothing wrong.

3. Now we need to add money laundering, specifically russian mob oligarchs, backed by the pootster...

and request tax returns from the last 40 years. When did he get is first "bribe, er, I mean loan" from Pootie? Wasn't that in the 80's? 40 years should suffice.

And can we say RICO????? I thought we could.

Seize EVERY penny they (the turd and his entire immediate family, minus Barron and Tiffany) have.

And RENAME Trump Tower, BLM Tower, in BIG GOLD LETTERS, just like his name is currently. That way we don't have to worry about the constant repainting of 5th Avenue to reflect BLM.

Just another "thought". I got lots of 'em.
