Mazars USA, the accounting firm formerly working for the Trump family business, has begun turning over financial documents to the House Oversight Committee.
The Committee has received the first batch of documents from Mazars following a legal settlement and will include any document that indicates false or undisclosed information about Trump or his companies’ assets, income or liabilities.
- Mazars cut ties with the FPOTUS in February after the firm said it could no longer stand behind the financial information provided by Trump and his company operations. The company said that its statements prepared for Trump from mid-2011 to mid-2020 should no longer be relied upon.
“They have sent us a number of documents. We’re reviewing them,” committee chair Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) told the Times Saturday. “Mazars is being very cooperative,” she added, without adding any specifics.
The Oversight Committee has been in a lengthy struggle to obtain financial documents from Mr. Trump as part of its investigation into allegations of conflicts of interest, inadequate financial disclosures and violations of the emoluments clauses of the Constitution, which bar the president from receiving profits from a domestic or foreign government other than his official compensation.NYT
“These documents will inform the committee’s efforts to get to the bottom of former President Trump’s egregious conduct and ensure that future presidents do not abuse their position of power for personal gain,” Ms. Maloney said in a statement regarding the settlement earlier this month.
