UPDATE: Democrat Chairman of House Ways and Means Knew About Anti-Trump IRS Whistleblower SINCE JULY
Another day, another leak — and another Deep State ‘whistleblower.’
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.
Chairman Richard Neal
The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Democrat Richard Neal, admitted that he received the “credible” complaint from the whistleblower at the end of July.
That same panel is trying to obtain President Trump’s tax returns.
Neal broke the report today.
Business Insider reported:
The complaint alleges “inappropriate efforts to influence” the agency’s audit of Trump’s tax returns, according to a court filing from the House Ways and Means Committee…
…The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Richard Neal, wrote that he received a credible complaint from a whistleblower at the end of July. The panel is currently trying to obtain six years worth of Trump’s tax returns.
The president has repeatedly refused to release them, claiming they’re under audit, even though there’s no rule that says that individuals cannot disclose their returns on the basis of an audit.
Not much is known about the process of auditing a president. Rules governing it were tightened after President Richard Nixon was accused of influencing the process.
Like the Deep State “whistleblower” complaint before it, this is another deep state employee using hearsay to target President Trump.
Rep. Neal and Democrats plotted to release the complaint today.
It was all another coordinated assault.
House Ways & Means Chair Neal said he’s consulting lawyers about whether to make public a complaint by a federal employee about possible misconduct in the IRS’s auditing of Trump. Employee alleges “inappropriate efforts to influence” the audit process https://t.co/5L0wA8ZtbT
