President Donald Trumpís former tax attorney for over a decade, Edward Burke, had his Chicago office raided by federal agents on Thursday,

Burke, currently serving as the chairman of the City Council Committee on Finance, assisted Trump with his taxes for 12 years and fought many legal battles for the real estate mogul to reduce property taxes in the Chicago area.

Federal agents reportedly arrived at Burkeís office on Thursday morning unannounced and made everyone leave the building before placing paper over all of the windows, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The nature of the visit was not known.

Burke, a Democrat, has been the alderman of Chicagoís 14th Ward for nearly 40 years and before entering politics was a city police officer. His small law firm Klafter & Burke worked with Trump since 2006 to lower property taxes on the presidentís Chicago buildings by more than $14 million.

4. Smart Money says Trump never returns to the U.S. from G-20.

He'll soon feel right at home in Argentina. No doubt many of his German relatives also relocated there abruptly after WWII.
