Is the politician there because of the state and the people, or is the state because of the politician, in this case the former president. Millions of pages of documents showing how much tax Donald Trump paid were handed over to the New York prosecutor, after 17 months of trying to prevent it.
These are documents from the Tax Administration (IRS) which, among other things, show how much income tax Trump paid in the period from 2011 to 2019. Those documents were handed over to the prosecutor after the Supreme Court ordered it.
New York prosecutor Cyrus Vance is investigating whether Trump, his children Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric, as well as the director of Trump's organization, Allen Weisselberg, are involved in financial embezzlement. Already tried the recipe of the "family" business at the expense of the state.
It is interesting that Trump is the only president of the USA who refused to announce how much he paid taxes, with the explanation that he is under investigation by the Tax Administration. Although this does not mean that documents cannot be published.
The former president criticized the Supreme Court, and called the investigation of the New York prosecutor "politically motivated".
"This is something that has never happened to any president. Everything is inspired by the Democrats and is happening in their location, the city and the state of New York, which is completely controlled by my declared enemy, Governor Andrew Cuomo," Trump said.
An investigation is also underway into whether Trump and his organization deliberately reduced the value of real estate in order to pay lower taxes or get loans with more favorable conditions.
