He has already let us know it was published specially to harm him in the elections.
Well, boo hoo. Maybe he should have declared that Riviera mansion before campaign start.

As for legal consequences, I assume they will be minimal because the majority of the unearthed cases involving Western politicials don't actually involve anything illegal, and in a not insignificant portion the connection to Panama will be the main dubious factor. When it comes to e.g. Russian politicians or oligarchs, fraud sanctioned by Putin is de facto legal (but to balance things out, fraud not sanctioned by Putin will be penalized even when fictional).
