Major news organizations reported today that a New York District Attorney is investigating U.S. President Donald Trump and/or one of his companies or businesses for alleged fraud. This has rarely happened before, the fact that a President is in this kind of scenario.

This is notable for a lot of reasons. The prospect of a sitting President or his company being indicted or charged with a crime is hard to ponder.

Lots of people wonder what is going on and have questions:

  • Are these real crimes and accusations, or is a political in nature?
  • Was President Donald Trump the one doing these alleged things, or were they done by subordinates without his knowledge?
  • Is it legally wrong to describe one’s assets as valued at dollar amounts greater than other valuations?
  • Who gets to determine the real value or worth of assets, when those values are used for taxation purposes?

There are many more complex legal and political questions that will be asked and possibly answered in the coming weeks…
