Newly uncovered tax documents show Trump kept '2 sets of books' and may have committed financial fraud
- Newly uncovered tax documents from President Donald Trump that were obtained by ProPublica contain several inconsistencies that could point to financial fraud.
- The discrepancies in the numbers make some Trump properties look more valuable to lenders and less valuable to tax authorities.
- At least one of the filings was made after Trump took office in 2017.
- The public may soon get a window into the president's closely held financial records, after two separate court rulings ordering Trump to turn over years of tax returns to Congress and New York prosecutors.
- An employee at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) also recently blew the whistle on "inappropriate efforts to influence" the agency's audit of Trump's taxes.

The documents were part of records for four Trump properties in New York City: The Trump International Hotel and Tower, 40 Wall Street, Trump Tower, and 1290 Avenue of the Americas.
