Manhattan prosecutors have subpoenaed eight years of President Donald Trump's tax returns from his accounting firm as part of a state investigation into hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels in the closing days of the 2016 campaign, according to a published report.

Daniels claims that she had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006 shortly after the birth of his son, Barron Trump, and received the payment in exchange for her silence on the matter.

Cohen, who made one of the payments himself and arranged for American Media Inc., the parent company of the National Enquirer, to pay the other, pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and other crimes and is serving a three-year sentence at a federal prison in upstate NY. "We believe strongly in the ethical and professional rules and regulations that govern our industry, our work and our client interactions".

The describe notes that if The broad apple district attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., a Democrat, is a success in acquiring the president's tax returns, the documents may perchance perchance be lined by secrecy solutions governing gargantuan juries and would no longer change into public except they had been historical as proof in a prison case.

Vance's office declined to comment Monday on the tax return subpoenas, which were first reported by the New York Times.

The president has fought back to keep his finances under wraps, challenging the subpoenas in federal court.

In a huge coup for Western Australia, current world number two Rafael Nadal will represent Spain in his first visit to the State. Kyrgios is now ranked higher than any other Australian male tennis player at No 27, and presents a headache to Tennis Australia.

The U.S. attorney's office in NY informed a court last month that it was finished investigating the payments. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has defied a congressional subpoena for the returns and Trump has sued to block a state law that permits officials to disclose his state returns if Congress asks for them.

The investigation by Vance has been focused on $130,000 that Cohen paid Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, just before the election.

Vance's office declined to comment.

The Times reported, citing 'people briefed on the matter, ' that Vance's inquiry involves an examination of whether anyone at the Trump Organization falsified business records by falsely listing the reimbursements to Cohen as a legal expense. However, a false filing of that nature is only a felony under New York law if it is covering up another crime, according to the New York Times.

The federal inquiry looked at whether campaign finance laws were broken.
