Trump’s goose now cooked like Al Capone’s taxes, says top lawyer


Trump-signed checks revealed by Michael Cohen for hush money are sparking new questions and possible lines of investigation as House Oversight Chair Rep.

Attorney William Wachtel tells Ari Melber, “tax cases are simple” and payments to Michael Cohen “required the filing of a 1099” and demonstrates how failing to file, filing a false return or using the payment to reduce “the taxable income to Donald Trump” and evade taxes are all chargeable crimes.
