Boris Epshteyn, a senior adviser for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, suggested that New York Times reporters should face jail time for reporting on the billionaire’s tax returns.
According to Epshteyn, the New York Times report that raised questions about tax evasion was based on “alleged documents,” even though the tax returns were verified by the candidate’s former accountant.
“There’s no authentication for them,” Epshteyn said. “The only authentication for them is an octogenarian retired accountant in Florida.”
“If they are authentic then the New York Times reporters face jail time, five years of jail time for using someone’s tax documents without their approval,” he added. “The story has no facts in it whatsoever.”
