TRUMP BUSINESS/TRUMP TAXES: “The Trump Organization stands trial this week in what prosecutors allege was a 15-year scheme to compensate top executives of former President Donald Trump’s company ‘off the books’ to help them avoid paying taxes — with the company’s former chief financial officer appearing as the prosecution’s star witness.

Jury selection began Monday [October 022], with potential panelists likely to be questioned intensely about whether they can be impartial in a case that involves the former president and his eponymous company.”
