New York investigating Trump tax dodging report

New York investigating Trump tax dodging reportThe New York state tax department said Tuesday it is investigating reports that President Donald Trump helped his parents dodge millions of dollars in taxes and received far more money from his father’s real estate empire than he has claimed in the past. Earlier, The New York Times said its own exhaustive probe of a vast trove of tax returns and confidential records showed Trump had engaged in suspect tax tactics, including “outright fraud” that greatly inflated the funds he received from his parents. Trump has stated on numerous occasions that he received little help from his father, New York property developer Fred Trump, in building his fortune.

Democrats investigating new sexual misconduct claim against Kavanaugh, New Yorker reports

Democrats investigating new sexual misconduct claim against Kavanaugh, New Yorker reportsA second woman has stepped forward with an accusation of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, this time during his college years at Yale University, the New Yorker reported Sunday. The magazine says Senate Democrats, who brought to light the claims of Christine Blasey Ford against President Donald Trump’s pick for the nation’s top court, are investigating an incident reported by Deborah Ramirez, 53, a former Yale student. Kavanaugh denied the allegation, and the White House issued a statement saying it stands firmly behind his nomination. The claim dates to the 1983-84 academic school year, when Kavanaugh was a freshman at Yale, the New Yorker reported. Ramirez said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drunken dormitory party. The offices of at least four Democratic senators have received information about Ramirez’s allegation, the New Yorker reported. US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Credit:  SAUL LOEB/AFP Ford and Kavanaugh are scheduled to testify before a Senate panel on Thursday about what she says was a sexual assault by him at a party when they were teenagers. Kavanaugh said in the statement about the latest claim that “this alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple.� Separately, Michael Avenatti, the lawyer best known for representing adult film star Stephanie Clifford, said on Twitter that he represents a woman “with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh.� His client is not Ramirez, Avenatti tweeted. I represent a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge. We will be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee and will likewise be demanding that Judge and others be subpoenaed to testify. The nomination must be withdrawn.— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) September 23, 2018 “This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats designed to tear down a good man,� White House spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said in a statement. “This claim is denied by all who were said to be present and is wholly inconsistent with what many women and men who knew Judge Kavanaugh at the time in college say.�
