What we know - Trump is in some deep doo doo poop.

Roughly 15 federal agents showed up at Burke’s office in Chicago’s City Hall around 7:30 am Central time and took over the office by kicking out staffers and papering over the windows, according to reports from the Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago Tribune. The agents left in the early afternoon with “one cardboard file box, a computer and two computer monitors,” according to the Sun-Times.

I think we can put the word saved in quotes more like laundered:
Burke’s law firm saved Trump $14.1 million in property taxes between 2006 and 2018, according to the Sun-Times.

Yes, this has been posted several times. Trying to link it to Trump is a big stretch. But, of course, that doesn't stop some 'news' sites from trying to do so.

Burke is a Chicago Alderman (City Councilman), who also runs a law firm specializing in protesting property taxes in the Chicago area. His firm was used by the Trump Organization to handle property valuation appeals for Trump tower in Chicago. I haven't seen any indication that he represented other properties, or had other connections to the Trump organization, and they no longer use this firm. Calling him a 'Trump attorney' is a bit of a stretch. It's unlikely that a property tax firm for a single building would have any relation to Mueller's investigation.

Note that this was Burke's city offices -- his council office and city finance committee office. (Not his law office). It is very likely related to an ongoing investigation into his supervision of the city's worker's compensation fund. It could also be related to other city council shenanigans.
