Donald Trump just took a step closer to prison
Well, well, well, the Trump tax records have finally been given to the Manhattan District Attorney. Trump’s world hasn’t come to an end yet, but the clock is ticking. Depending on what Trump did, Trump & heirs may be that slow-moving trainwreck.
The records include financial statements, working papers, engagement letters, preparation and review papers, the whole ball of wax. Financial statements cover past financial positions as well as current valuations. The property taxes are supposed to cover past valuations. Loan agreements may cover past and current situations, and address future expectations. But yes, the DA has those papers and can decide whether there is reason to proceed with a criminal indictment.
The public will probably gain access to Trump’s taxes through the indictment process, if the DA decides to proceed. Possible avenues to explore are insurance fraud, tax fraud, income tax fraud, unwarranted accelerated tax write-offs, corporate liability and personal liability.
