House Dems Consider Releasing Second Whistleblower Complaint: IRS and Taxes

Well well. When it rains, it … House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) says he is investigating whether to make public a complaint by another whistleblower, a whistleblower who claims to have evidence that the Internal revenue Service acted illegally or corruptly in the preparation or analysis of President Trump’s taxes, Bloomberg reports. The whistleblower, a federal employee, stated that “inappropriate efforts to influence” the audit process occurred within the Internal Revenue Service. Chairman Neal stated that his decision hinges upon whether or not lawyers for the House committee believe such a move would be legal and/or helpful to the long-term goal of obtaining public release of Trump’s tax returns. One might think that releasing the complaint could certainly be “helpful” given that the House has had no success, yet, in releasing the last six years of Trump’s returns. According to Rawstory: On August 8, Neal sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin asking for communications between the IRS and Treasury employees who were involved in the agency’s audit of Trump and asked him to reply by August 13. It’s still not known if Mnuchin replied or not. Let me help Rawstory out. No, Mnuchin did not reply, or we would have heard. Y’all are likely tired of hearing me saying it, but this process – the impeachment process – cannot go forward in my mind, without access to Trump’s taxes and his financial records. If we know anything about Trump, it is that he is motivated purely be self-interest. We will never understand the underlying basis for Trump’s foreign policy choices, nor his domestic concerns, without full disclosure of Trump’s personal financial interests and conflicts. Somewhere, hidden among the paperwork, one will likely find Russian and Saudi money carefully blended in, almost unnoticeably. For that very reason, it is a safe bet that – with the White House knowing there is a good chance that a judge will order Trump to disclose his taxes  – someone in the Trump administration sought manipulate the returns prior to the impending release. While it is strictly a “guess,” it is the guess that makes the most sense given what we know. Last, the situation is devolving such that even Republicans must be looking for lifejackets as they jump ship. “Crimes on paper,” furnish Republicans the perfect floatation device. Crimes on paper are not subject to “nuance,” Republicans fearing the MAGA-head blowback can throw their hands up and say: “What choice did I have? He broke the law, period.” I know that I can be insufferable, but we have said for quite some time that the end could come blindingly fast. If Chairman Neal releases a complaint evidencing direct White House manipulation of IRS employees handling Trump’s taxes, it wouldn’t shock me if Trump stepped down that week. Stay tuned. Oh, and while you procrastinate, day-dreaming, let your mind consider what Trump might have engineered in his private meetings with Putin, given what Trump appears willing to do out in front of American White House and government staff. **** Peace, y’all Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com
