THAT would be in addition to probably facing the same charges in New York State from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office….
All this while Trump is supposed to pay back almost a half Billion dollars he owes….

Nick Akerman, who served on the prosecution team during the 1970s Watergate investigation, said Tuesday he believed President Trump would likely face tax fraud charges upon leaving the White House.
Akerman’s comments came after the New York Times released a bombshell report on Sunday revealing a look into Trump’s finances. The report stated that Trump was able to avoid paying taxes 10 of the 15 years preceding the 2016 election.
Akerman noted that a New York Times report referenced “avoidance” in the headline.
