I've heard about it. Didn't read the whole story. My main takeaway is that his campaign story that all he got from his father was a million dollar loan that he had to repay is horseshit. I always thought it was horseshit but this proves it conclusively. He got all kinds of money from his father and from a very young age, not just when he died, and most of it not as a loan.

As far as the tax evasion angle, I think that's true too, but nobody who supports him cares about that. They might call it "creative tax avoidance" rather than tax evasion. In any case the statute of limitations has passed, so tough shit. He got away with it.

If he evaded taxes he should be charged. If he avoided taxes legally then string up congress.

Nothing to see here.

If he owes back taxes, send him a bill.

The fact that NY has pursued this as a form of malicious prosecution doesn't give me much faith in their findings. Buncha seditious hicks.
