Federal agents have reportedly raided the Chicago City Hall office of a lawyer who previously did tax work for President Trump.
Burke’s office did not immediately respond to The Hill’s request for comment.
Burke worked for Trump for more than a decade doing property tax work.
Burke’s law firm of Klafter & Burke has worked with Trump’s companies repeatedly to reduce the property tax that Trump Tower and his other properties in Chicago have had to pay, according to the Sun Times.
Over his 12 years working for Trump, Burke was allegedly able to cut the property taxes on the downtown tower by more than $14 million.
Burke stopped working for Trump this summer, citing “irreconcilable differences” in letters filed with the Illinois State Property Tax Appeal Board.
