Prosecutors urge Trump to release tax papers
Procurators in the state of New York on Monday demanded before a federal judge that a subpoena for the release of the tax returns of President Donald Trump be maintained.
Trump filed a lawsuit against the subpoena last week, but prosecutors have asked the judge to dismiss the lawsuit.
The subpoena states that Trump must release his personal and business tax returns from the past eight years. Public procurators in New York want to see the documents to find out if Trump has transferred silence money to porn actress Stormy Daniels.
In a news conference, Trump called the prosecutors’ demand Monday “the sequel to a witch-hunt.” According to the president, the subpoena is far too broad, and there is no need for prosecutors to request so many documents.
