POLANTZ: Cy Vance in New York is seeking the Trump tax returns for a grand jury investigation.
The best way to think of a grand jury is just like Las Vegas: What happens in the grand jury stays in the grand jury.
The evidence a grand jury reviews, what they're seeking, how they vote when faced with approving charges -- secrecy surrounds all of this.

Of course, there always could be leaks -- and in this case, Trump's tax returns were leaked to The New York Times shortly before the 2020 election.
WHAT MATTERS: Along with the tax investigations, authorities in Georgia are looking at Trump's pressure on state voting officials after the 2020 election.
