Trump’s tax returns from past 10 years show he received money from Russia twice — for Miss Universe pageant and property sold to a Russian billionaire – By Ken Thomas and Darlene Superville l May 12 2017
WASHINGTON — Lawyers for President Donald Trump said Friday that a review of his last 10 years of tax returns did not reflect “any income of any type from Russian sources,” with some exceptions.
It’s the latest attempt by the president to tamp down concerns about any Russian ties amid an ongoing investigation of his campaign’s associates.

In a letter released to the AP, the attorneys said there was no equity investment by Russians in entities controlled by Trump or debt owed by Trump to Russian lenders.
