District Attorney Cyrus Vance is seeking access to Trump's tax deduction data, citing the role Trump supposedly could play in paying silence to women who claimed to have had an intimate relationship with him in the past. Trump's lawyers argue that VanceвЂ™s claims are contrary to the US constitution, citing the fact that it is unacceptable to conduct the proceedings on the basis of political motives and in order to interfere with the work of the head of state.
