WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A review of President Donald Trump's tax returns from the past 10 years showed no income from Russian sources outside of a few exceptions, and indicated he did not owe money to Russian lenders, his lawyers said in a letter released by the White House on Friday.

The letter, dated March 8, said the tax returns did not reflect any Trump income from Russian sources, aside from income from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and a 2008 sale of an estate in Florida to a Russian billionaire.

The letter said it was possible Trump's businesses also earned "immaterial" amounts from ordinary sales transactions with Russians over the years.
