Trump still trying to hide taxes

President Trump, seeking to block a subpoena for his tax returns, plans to ask a federal judge to order the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., to disclose details about his investigation into the president’s business practices, according to a letter filed on Monday.

The letter, which Mr. Trump’s lawyers wrote to the federal judge in Manhattan, was in response to a filing from prosecutors in Mr. Vance’s office, who argued last week that they had wide legal basis to subpoena eight years of the president’s tax records and other financial documents.

The office suggested it was investigating the president and his company for possible bank and insurance fraud, a significantly broader inquiry than prosecutors had acknowledged in the past.
