The criminal case against Donald Trump in Manhattan has taken yet another plot twist. According to Politico, Manhattan ‘s District Attorney revealed in court documents that the case against Trump actually extends significantly beyond just tax records. Initially, it was believed that the case surrounded unreleased tax records and potential tax fraud.
The DA ‘s office in Manhattan revealed in court documents that the investigation actually extends into the territory of potential business fraud and further liabilities. Such accusations extend Trump ‘s alleged wrongdoings far further than anyone may have originally realised.
Officials believe Trump and co engaged in tax; business, and insurance fraud.
On Monday, Cyrus Vance argued in the official filing that his office was forthcoming last year when the allegations first surfaced but they were not made public. In fact, Trump ‘s attorneys apparently argued that Vance ‘s office didn’t lawfully request the files because they claim such was done on a “broad scale” and initially only done based on the claims made by Michael Cohen.
