Man in Trump tax re­turn case re­ar­rested

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NATIONAL -

BA­TON ROUGE — A Louisiana pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tor ac­cused of try­ing to il­le­gally ob­tain Don­ald Trump’s tax re­turns be­fore last year’s U.S. pres­i­den­tial elec­tion has been ar­rested for vi­o­lat­ing con­di­tions of his pre­trial re­lease, pros­e­cu­tors said.

Jor­dan Ham­lett, 32, com­mit­ted “nu­mer­ous vi­o­la­tions,” in­clud­ing hack­ing into email and so­cial me­dia ac­counts of a man at the re­quest of the man’s wife and trav­el­ing out of state with­out ap­proval, pros­e­cu­tors wrote in court records un­sealed Fri­day.

Ham­lett also ac­cessed the In­ter­net with de­vices that are not mon­i­tored, pros­e­cu­tors said.

Last year, Ham­lett tried un­suc­cess­fully to ob­tain Trump’s tax re­turns us­ing a U.S. De­part­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion fi­nan­cial aid web­site, pros­e­cu­tors said. Fed­eral agents ar­rested him on a charge that he mis­used a So­cial Se­cu­rity num­ber in the ef­fort.
