Is it true that you have sold your soul?"
I say "Hey man, I don't know
Let me go and ask my accountant"

Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance is investigating President Donald Trump, his company, and his kids for bank and insurance fraud.
The New York Times reported:
The Manhattan district attorney’s office suggested on Monday that it has been investigating President Trump and his company for possible bank and insurance fraud, a significantly broader inquiry than the prosecutors have acknowledged in the past.

The office of the district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., made the disclosure in a new federal court filing arguing Mr. Trump’s accountants should have to comply with its subpoena seeking eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns. Mr. Trump has asked a judge to declare the subpoena invalid.
The prosecutors did not directly identify the focus of their inquiry but said that “undisputed” news reports last year about Mr. Trump’s business practices make it clear that the office had a legal basis for the subpoena.

You'll find that people under investigation for crimes don't generally get a lot of respect for their privacy. Looking into the financial records (not just tax records) of someone suspected of financial crimes is like looking into the car-trunk of somebody suspected of running drugs.

The revenooers don't focus on financial crime, they focus on tax compliance. In the U.S., they are not trained on financial laws, they are trained on tax law. They also have no jurisdiction over financial crimes, so long as the taxes are paid.

The New York Federal and state prosecutors are the best, most experienced, investigators and prosecutors of financial crimes in the country (not surprising, New York City is the financial hub of the U.S.).

The general rule is "if a prosecutor can convince the judge that there is probable cause to think the financial records will contain evidence of crime, the judge will issue an order to turn over the financial records." Not really any different from issuing a search warrant for drugs.

What a load of malarkey .

Oh, right, one of his lawyers did. And backed it up with 130,000 of its close, personal friends.

Jealous ?

There's actually a line on our tax forms where you're required to report "Income illegally obtained." The Revenue don't give two hoots what you did to get it, as long as you report it and pay tax.

So what do you do when you fill out your return, do you lie or do you pay the tax?

Neither. I report the illegal income, then I use various tax dodges to avoid paying.

It's easy when you got a money guy like mine.

Casting a larger net to find a crime to pin on Trump seems reasonable

It's a fairly standard prosecutorial tactic when the evidence points to massive, systemic crime.

They have direct testimony from an involved party that Trump organization committed crimes.

I have to assume that you'd consider that good enough reason to launch an investigation of anybody but Mousseolini.
