We are getting closer to these tax returns every day it seems.

State prosecutors in Manhattan have subpoenaed President Trump’s accounting firm to demand eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns, according to several people with knowledge of the matter.

The subpoena opens a new front in a wide-ranging effort to obtain copies of the president’s tax returns, which Mr. Trump initially said he would make public during the 2016 campaign but has since refused to disclose.

The subpoena was issued by the Manhattan district attorney’s office late last month, soon after it opened a criminal investigation into the role that the president and his family business played in hush-money payments made in the run-up to the election.

Both Mr. Trump and his company reimbursed Michael D. Cohen, the president’s former lawyer and fixer, for money Mr. Cohen paid to buy the silence of Stormy Daniels, a pornographic film actress who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump. The president has denied the affair.

The state prosecutors are seeking a range of tax documents from the accounting firm, Mazars USA, including Mr. Trump’s personal returns and those of his business, the Trump Organization. The subpoena seeks federal and state returns for both the president and the company dating back to 2011, the people said.

There are a number of investigations focused on Trump’s tax returns now, and I think that one of more will eventually be successful. 

I personally think that the extreme measures Trump is taking to keep these out of the public eye is essentially an admission of guilt. 

I for one am excited to see what there is in them which frightens him so much.

    “…I for one am excited to see what there is in them which frightens him so much.”

    Me, too. Trump is probably scared of what’s in the tax returns like undervalued assets, Russian funny-money & falsified documents for tax avoidance, plus he’s scared of what’s NOT in the tax returns, the billionaire fallacy.

    Oh, and Trump’s obsession with the Obama’s Netflix and book deals is because he’s jealous that the Obama’s are now worth more than he is…AND people in Manhattan love the Obama’s and hate the Trump’s.

      “We can imagine many scenarios, but the most plausible scenario is that
      she presented herself to him as entirely willing,” he wrote.

      Stallman’s resignation is the latest fallout for MIT from the Epstein scandal. Earlier this month, Joi Ito abruptly left his position as head of the school’s Media Lab after The New Yorker reported that he had a hand in covering up Epstein-linked donations to the research facility. Epstein gave hefty sums to the Media Lab and directed other billionaires to do the same, according to the New Yorker exposé.

      Gano said she obtained Stallman’s email from a friend who received it through the CSAIL mailing list in response to a planned student protest against MIT’s past relationship with Epstein. Shortly after Gano’s blog post appeared, Vice published a copy of the email thread containing Stallman’s statements.

      Stallman has also resigned from his post as president of Boston’s Free Software Foundation, which he founded in 1985, and stepped down from its board of directors, the organization announced Monday. ”

      “Me, too.”
