C ‘A scam for Donald Trump. The former White House resident must hand over his account records to Manhattan attorney Cyrus Vance. The Supreme Court has refused to overturn the decision of a federal judge who ordered the New York attorney to provide eight years of tax and bank notices, as requested by the former New York president’s attorneys. The Supreme Court had already ordered Donald Trump in July 2020 to send these documents to the prosecutor, but the president’s attorneys had again asked him to contest the purpose of the requested documents. “Work continues,” Cyrus Vance responded in a statement.
Initially, before the 2016 presidential election, Cyrus Vance’s trial of two millionaires was heard behind closed doors in front of a large arbitral tribunal, which is now investigating possible allegations of tax fraud, insurance fraud or bank fraud. According to the American media, investigators recently interviewed employees of Deutsche Bank – a longtime financial supporter of Donald Trump and his holding company, the Trump organization – and his insurance company, Ion. They also re-interviewed Michael Cohen, the president’s former personal lawyer, who is serving a prison sentence. He had told Congress that Trump and his company would alternately obtain bank loans or artificially raise or lower the value of their assets in order to reduce taxes.
Risk of imprisonment
If these suspicions are true and Donald Trump is charged, they will imprison the former president. Unlike federal crimes, violations of state laws cannot be forgiven by the President of the United States. New York State Democratic Attorney Ledidia James is also investigating allegations of bank fraud and insurance fraud in civil proceedings.
