WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s lawyers say his most recent tax returns don’t reflect any income of any type from Russian sources.
Their letter notes exceptions related to previously cited income generated from a beauty pageant and sale of a Florida estate.
The letter is the latest attempt by Trump to tamp down concerns about any Russian ties amid an ongoing investigation of his campaign’s associates and Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.
The lawyers offer no supporting documents to back up the claims made in the letter.
Their review also takes into account only Trump’s returns from the past 10 years. That leaves open questions about whether there were financial dealings with Russia in earlier years.
