The source of CNN emphasizes that the tax returns of the ex-president contain “millions of pages of documents.”
Attorney for the District of New York (located in the state of the same name) Cyrus Vance got access to the tax returns of former US President Donald Trump. This was reported on Thursday by CNN, citing a source.
According to him, the documents were handed over to the office of the district attorney last Monday, a few hours after the US Supreme Court issued a decision. The source of the TV Company emphasizes that Trump’s tax returns contain “millions of pages of documents.”
On Monday, the Supreme Court rejected a motion by Trump, who tried to prevent the transfer of his eight-year tax returns to the New York District Attorney. Trump’s lawyers insisted that the prosecutor is trying to obtain information about the tax deductions of the former US president “with malicious intent or with the purpose of prosecution.”
In 2019, Vance sent subpoenas to the American division of the French-based firm Mazars, demanding to provide data on tax deductions of Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, since 2011. The prosecutor stressed that he needed to get acquainted with these materials in connection with the ongoing proceedings. It concerns the role that Trump allegedly could have played in paying money for silence to women who claimed that they had intimate relations with him in the past and possible violations in the tax and banking spheres.
Mazars has previously prepared financial statements for Trump, his family members, and his businesses. The former US president has previously made several attempts to stop the proceedings initiated by Vance.
