Did President Trump's Allies Pressure School to Hide His Grades?

What happened to President Trump's records when he attended military school back in the 1960s?

In a front-page story, The Washington Post alleges the school, the New York Military Academy, was pressured into locking up the records in a safe place by Trump's allies

The arm-twisting reportedly came in 2011, just days after Trump had challenged then-President Obama to produce his records 

Richard Pezzullo, who graduated from the same school, said officials feared Trump's records might be leaked to the press. 

"They had to actually go find those cartons, find those records and then secure them in the safe," Pezzullo said. 

Just last week, Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen testified that he pressured Trump's alma maters to keep the president's grades under wraps. 

“I’m talking about a man who declares himself brilliant but directed me to threaten his high school, his colleges, and the College Board to never release his grades or SAT scores,” Cohen told members of Congress. 

Trump has said his parents enrolled him in the school, which is located 60 miles outside of Manhattan, because "I was a wise guy, and they wanted to get me in line."

After graduating, Trump attended Fordham University and then the University of Pennsylvania.
