Trump lawyers assert without evidence that Trump has no Russian income

President Trump's lawyers have released a letter apparently confirming that the last 10 years of Trump's tax returns show virtually no "income of any type from Russian sources." Noted exceptions are the 2013 Miss Universe pageant and a property Trump sold to a billionaire in 2008 for $95 million, The Associated Press reports.

AP notes: "The lawyers did not release copies of Trump's tax returns so The Associated Press cannot independently verify their conclusions."

Trump reportedly asked his lawyers for the letter after a request from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Read the report here.
