...Vance's filing goes on to note that in a court opinion last October, Marrero noted that the subpoenaed information could be of use in examining claims of "alleged insurance and bank fraud by the Trump Organization and its officers."

As with many things, there seem to be degrees of breaking the law, from just cracking it to pulverizing it.

You buried the lead Lamp. Title should have alluded to the DA's disclosure that Trump is being investigated for tax and loan fraud.

The amount of cheating (that we even know about) that Trump and his Flying Monkeys are mounting to steal the next election is enormous. Trump knows that he is going to prison if he loses.
