Since August, Cyrus R. Vance Jr. applied for personal and corporate tax data of the president.
It is known that the request is the part of the investigation that was considered to be focused on the possible bribery of two women who claimed to have relations with Trump. The lawyers of the president asked the court to revoke the application.
According to the laws of New York, the details of the request should remain secret. However, the application was filed after unconditional information in mass media about widespread and prolonged criminal conduct at the Trump Organization.
The prosecutors cited news items that stated that Trump supposedly inflated the value of his projects before potential business-partners and banks. They also reminded the testimony of former personal lawyer of Trump, Michael Cohen.
He stated that the president inflates the value of his business interests to make an impression on people or creditors but then he lowered the price of the assets to reduce taxes.
