A New York prosecutor seeking US President Donald Trump's tax returns says he is investigating reported "protracted criminal conduct at the Trump Organization".
Monday's court filing suggests the inquiry is broader than alleged hush money payments made to two women who say they had affairs with Mr Trump.
The Supreme Court ruled last month that lawyers could examine the tax returns.
Mr Trump has repeatedly dismissed the probe, calling it a "witch hunt".
Purely politically motivated abuse of power by a prosecutor is OK with you so long as its to get #badorangeman. Beyond that you're dumb enough to believe this will be found if they can just get their hands on his taxes. So dumb.Along with hypocrisy, criminal fraud is ok for Trump as well?
