More than 50 former government officials and national security and military figures have written a letter calling for Donald J. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, to share details of his overseas business investments before Election Day. The letter was drafted as Mr. Trump, who is reported to have extensive overseas entanglements, has refused to release his tax returns.
On September 15, 2016, Campaign for Accountability (CfA) sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice requesting an investigation of Donald Trump for failing to accurately disclose his finances in connection with his presidential campaign. CfA’s letter followed Newsweek’s revelations that Trump failed to disclose receiving millions of dollars from his extensive contractual relationships with overseas businesses. In August, CfA also called on DOJ to investigate Trump for apparently vastly overstating the value of his golf course empire on his financial disclosure forms.
