Manhattan state prosecutors subpoenaed President Trump's accounting firm, Mazars USA, for eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns on Monday. This subpoena was reportedly issued by the Manhattan district attorney's office late last month as part of the ongoing investigation into the hush-money payment made to keep porn star Stormy Daniels quiet about her alleged affair with Trump prior to the 2016 presidential election. Trump has denied the affair. Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, was previously sentenced to three years in prison for his role in paying off Daniels. New York prosecutors are examining whether the Trump Organization violated state laws when reimbursing Cohen. Tax returns would only be made public if they became evidence in a criminal case.
