Judge orders Trump’s tax lawyers to hand over his business records to NY attorney general

A New York judge ordered a law firm serving as counsel to Donald Trump’s businesses to turn over documents from the Trump Organization to the state’s attorney general, according to a report from The Hill.

“New York State Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron said in an order that he had completed a review of documents from the firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius and determined that at least some of them were not privileged and should be handed over to the attorney general’s office, which had subpoenaed the firm and the Trump Organization,” The Hill reports.

The Trump organization is currently under investigation over whether it falsified the value of certain assets in order to secure loans, tax breaks and investors. New York Attorney General Letitia James is seeking documents related to the law firm’s on certain Trump Organization-owned properties.

Prosecutors are looking into whether the Trump Organization may have inflated the value of the Seven Springs Estate in Westchester County, N.Y. in order to get a $21.1 million tax deduction in 2015.
