WOW! IRS Believes Mueller Investigation is Out of Control – They Refused to Participate in Manafort Raid
SHUT IT DOWN.
The Mueller investigation is so out of control that the IRS clashed with the Special Counsel’s team all summer over the broad scope and the Manafort raid according to a new report by CNN.
The IRS is now sharing information with Mueller’s team about Trump campaign associates. Mueller’s team is looking at everything tax related which includes real estate and banking. The IRS is concerned because Mueller is going back 11 years in his search. ELEVEN YEARS.
After being at odds for months, the two camps came to an agreement after consultation from officials at the Treasury Department.
Part of the concern centered on the far-reaching and broad requests from Mueller’s team. In the case of Manafort, Mueller’s investigators are reaching back 11 years as they investigate possible tax and financial crimes, according to search warrant documents. Mueller is bound by a written order issued by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in May which allows the special counsel to investigate “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”
After several months of being at odds, one source said, the IRS Criminal Investigation division is now sharing information about campaign associates, including Manafort and former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn. The sharing happened after the two camps reached an agreement following consultation with officials at the Treasury Department.
The IRS did not participate in the Manafort raid over the summer; the raid was carried out only by FBI agents. This is highly unusual since this particular probe centers around financial issues.
Tension between the IRS and the special counsel played out behind the scenes of the high-profile raid on Manafort’s Alexandria, Virginia, home this summer, according to multiple sources.
CNN also states that it is unclear whether Mueller has President Trump’s tax returns. If the Special Counsel does have Trump’s tax returns, Deputy AG Rosenstein would have to sign off on it being that it’s a sensitive matter.

As previously reported, armed FBI agents with guns drawn busted into Paul Manafort’s home as Manafort and his wife lay in bed.
The FBI agents insisted on searching Kathleen Manafort for weapons — after they barged into her home.
