Trump Signed Tax Returns with False Information Under Penalty of Perjury at Least 4 Times: Report

The Washington Post’s David Fahrenthold has been meticulously tracking the president’s finances.

President Donald Trump signed the Trump Foundation tax returns in four different years when they contained demonstrably false information, according to a new report by Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold.

As Fahrenthold notes, when you sign a tax return, you pledge that the information contained is accurate to the best of your knowledge under penalty of perjury. Knowingly falsifying a tax return is a felony under federal law. (Many noted that, by contrast, unauthorized border crossing is only a misdemeanor.)

The false information Farenthold reports on, which is confirmed by a recent New York attorney general lawsuit, concerns Trump’s use of his foundation to personally benefit himself, make a political donation, and to help his business. These acts are all barred under the law governing charitable foundations.
