Government Whistleblower Says Trump Obstructed Audit

The president keeps getting himself into major trouble. From the Ukraine scandal, to Trump creating another Ukraine scandal with China Thursday, to the new information the IRS has revealed. The president will pay for the crimes he continues to commit, and it’s only a matter of time until he is held accountable.

Back to the new bombshell dropped by the IRS Thursday. According to The Washington Post:

“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.”

This is huge. The president is literally obstructing justice at every turn to keep his brand totally polished. There’s just one problem with that. Trump’s personality has already tarnished his reputation irreparably.

The outlet continues:

“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.”

Of course they denied it, but that doesn’t mean the claims are any less valid. U.S. agency officials are fed up with the president abusing the system to avoid following the rules that every other American must abide by.

WaPo reported that:

“The whistleblower’s account focuses on the integrity of the government’s system for auditing the president and vice president’s tax returns.”

“Key parts of the complaint remain under wraps in part because of strict privacy laws that prevent the disclosure of any details related to the filing of tax returns.”

“People who described the complaint spoke on the condition of anonymity.”

John Koskinen, who served as IRS commissioner gave the following statement:

“Nobody at the Treasury Department should be calling to find out the status of anybody’s audit. For a Treasury official to call a career person — even just for information — seems to me highly inappropriate, even if it’s just checking in on how it’s going.”
