jon? >> jonathan: sarah, the trump campaign is facing questions about those reports from "new york times" and "newsweek." forget the october surprise, these could be the november shockers. "the new york times" reporting that donald trump used a legally dubious method to avoid paying taxes in the early '90s. the newspaper says that trump, who has proudly boasted he did not pay a dime in federal income tax for years, avoided reporting hundreds of millions of dollars avoidance maneuver that would likely have been rejected by the i.r.s. if trump had been audited. this as news-week reports that over the course of decades trump's companies have systematically destroyed or hidden thousands of e-mails, digital records and paper documents demanded in official proceedings. often in defiance of court order. the trump campaign is not responding to either report. this all comes as the f.b.i. has been working to analyze the thousands of e-mails discovered
