Has Donald Trump released his tax returns? Nope! But Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., a Democrat, is trying hard to get his hands on them.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has subpoenaed eight years of President Trump’s personal and corporate tax returns as part of its investigation into hush money payments to two women who said they had affairs with the president.
New York prosecutors sent the subpoenas last month to Mazars USA, Mr. Trump’s accounting firm, according to multiple reports Monday.
Mazars USA said in a statement it will “respect the legal process and fully comply with its legal obligations.”
“We believe strongly in the ethical and professional rules and regulations that govern our industry, our work and our client interactions,” the statement said. “As a matter of firm policy and professional rules we do not comment on the work we conduct for our clients.”
Marc Mukasey, an attorney who represents the Trump organization, said of the Mazars subpoena, “we are evaluating and will respond as appropriate.”
