ANOTHER LEAK: IRS ‘Whistleblower’ Using Second-Hand Info Claims Treasury Appointee May Have Tried to Interfere in Audit of Trump or Pence
Another day, another leak — and another Deep State ‘whistleblower.’
This time the ‘whistleblower’ is a career IRS official who filed a complaint with second-hand knowledge then leaked the story to the Washington Post.
A career IRS official filed a whistleblower complaint reporting that he was told at least one Treasury Department political appointee attempted to improperly interfere with the annual audit of President Trump’s or Vice President Mike Pence’s tax returns.
This news comes on the heels of a Deep State CIA snitch who filed a whistleblower complaint based on hearsay and gossip about Trump’s phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
An Internal Revenue Service official has filed a whistleblower complaint reporting that he was told at least one Treasury Department political appointee attempted to improperly interfere with the annual audit of the president or vice president’s tax returns, according to multiple people familiar with the document.
Trump administration officials dismissed the whistleblower’s complaint as flimsy because it is based on conversations with other government officials. But congressional Democrats were alarmed by the complaint, now circulating on Capitol Hill, and flagged it to a federal judge. They are also discussing whether to make it public.
That was the focus of the whistleblower complaint. The people briefed on its contents said, for the first time, that the complaint pertained to allegations of interference in the audit process by at least one Treasury Department official. They also said, for the first time, that the complaint revealed that the whistleblower is a career IRS official.
Two administration officials have described the complaint as hearsay and suggested it was politically motivated, but they spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter. Democrats who have reviewed it regard it as a deeply significant allegation that, if true, suggests that political appointees may have tried to interfere with the government audit process, which was set up to be insulated from political pressures.
In an interview with WaPo, the ‘whistleblower’ denied his action was politically motivated: “I take very seriously the duty of career civil servants to act with integrity and perform our duties impartially, even at the risk that someone will make a charge of bias.”
Key parts of the complaint are still hidden and only small portions of it are being leaked in order to damage Trump and his reelection efforts.
This leak will also serve to help bolster Democrats in their quest to get their hands on President Trump’s tax returns.

The coup continues.
The Deep State-Democrat-media complex is now using ‘whistleblowers’ who file complaints based on second-hand information and gossip in order to attack President Trump.
The ‘whistleblower’ is then allowed to attack Trump behind anonymity because they are hiding behind the Whistleblower Protection Act.
