US prosecutors last year ordered the company that owns President Donald Trump's golf courses in Scotland to show its financial filings in an attempt to reveal its ownership, The Times of London reported on Monday.
Prosecutors in Maryland in December subpoenaed documents related to properties controlled by DJT Holdings LLC, a company that owns Trump's hotel in Washington, DC, and resorts in places like Turnberry, Scotland, according to Trump's financial disclosure form. You can read the full filing at the bottom of this article.
The documents are part of an investigation into whether Trump still profits from his businesses. It focuses on Trump International Washington, an old post office building in the US capital that Trump converted into a luxury hotel in 2016.
Trump has attempted to have this case dismissed multiple times.
Fake news, deep state or something..Brian Frosh, the Maryland attorney general, said he was "seeking information proving that hotel revenues were flowing to the president through his affiliated entities," according to The Times.
Frosh added: "We are confident that at the end of discovery we will be able to prove our case that President Trump is violating the Constitution's emoluments clauses, America's first anti-corruption laws."
