Maryland and D.C. Seek Trump’s Trust, Business Tax Returns

Maryland and D.C. Seek Trump’s Trust, Business Tax ReturnsAmong the investigative demands issued Tuesday to more than 30 business entities, competitors and government agencies is a request for state and federal tax returns of Trump’s personal trust and the Trump Organization. The officials are seeking information about spending by foreign and domestic governments at Trump’s D.C. hotel as part of a lawsuit accusing the president of enriching himself through the White House. Unless the specific requests are blocked by a court, the records could allow attorneys general in Maryland and the District of Columbia to pierce a layer of secrecy that Trump and his company have zealously guarded -- namely, which governments the company is pitching for business and how much revenue Trump has generated from overseas officials while in public office.
