I know, right?

New York state tax officials are investigating allegations detailed in an exhaustive New York Times investigation into Donald Trump and his family’s business dealings.
The Times reported on Tuesday that Trump and his family committed “instances of outright fraud” in order to transfer millions of dollars from the real estate empire of the president’s father, Fred Trump, to his children without paying the appropriate taxes.
“The Tax Department is reviewing the allegations in the NYT article and is vigorously pursuing all appropriate avenues of investigation,” a spokesman from the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance said in an email to CNBC.
Representatives from the White House and the Trump Organization did not return requests for comment.
In a statement to the Times, Trump lawyer Charles Harder denied any allegations of fraud and tax evasion, saying “the facts upon which The Times bases its allegations are extremely inaccurate.”
Here’s the thing, that New York Time’s article was VERY carefully researched.
And in fact, they included links to the source material in the online version.
So IF there was anything incorrect about what the article said, that could be ferreted out by pro-Trump internet sleuths.
So far, THAT has not happened.
What is more, if the article is indeed false, then this New York state investigation will find nothing troubling, right?
How much are you willing to bet that they do not find anything troubling?
Because I would not bet even a dime on that.
