‘Just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R. Congressmen,’ Trump told acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen on Dec. 27. Former President Donald Trump suffered twin setbacks on Friday when the Justice Department cleared the way to release his tax records and disclosed a memo showing he had urged top officials last year to falsely claim his election defeat was “corrupt.” The department, reversing course from the stance it took when Trump was in office, told the Internal Revenue Service to provide the Republican businessman-turned-politician’s tax records to congressional investigators–a move he has long fought. Unlike other recent presidents, Trump refused to release his tax returns and other documents as he aimed to keep secret the details on his wealth and activities of his family company, the Trump Organization.
