Manhattan DA Gets Trump's Tax Documents

That was faster than most expected:

Tax records that former President Donald Trump tried to keep secret for years are now in the hands of the New York district attorney.

Prosecutors obtained the records on Monday, just hours after the US Supreme Court denied Trump's last-ditch effort to keep the records private, a spokesperson for the district attorney said.
The millions of pages of documents, sources say, contain Trump's tax returns spanning from January 2011 to August 2019, as well as financial statements, engagement agreements, documents relating to the preparation and review of tax returns, and work papers and communications related to the tax returns.  [snip]
New York District Attorney Cy Vance is investigating whether Trump and the Trump Organization engaged in tax fraud, insurance fraud and other schemes to defraud, including potentially providing false information to financial institutions or banks about the value of certain buildings and assets. 

Mazars is the Trump Organization's and Mango Mussolini's accounting firm.  The Manhattan DA has also subpoenaed records from Deutsche Bank (a prime creditor/ money launderer -- allegedly! -- for Trump), insurance broker Aon,  and from Ladder Capital, another creditor.  Their  documents are yet to be delivered to the DA. 

Anyone wishing for a quick resolution of this wide- ranging investigation is going to be disappointed. But, the longer is takes for the DA to assemble his case and for the Grand Jury to act, the more of a slam dunk the case going to trial is likely to be.  The involvement of Mango Mussolini's spawn in various parts of the schemes being investigated is also likely to take time to define and sort out. The wheels of justice turn slowly, but hopefully will finally grind up Mango Mussolini and his co- fraudsters exceedingly fine.
