Treasury inspector general to review handling of Trump's tax returns

Treasury inspector general to review handling of Trumpís tax returns

The Treasury Departmentís acting inspector general has opened a review into whether the Trump administration acted improperly during its ongoing fight with House Democrats over releasing President Trumpís tax returns.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has refused to comply with a request from House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.) for six years of the presidentís business and financial returns. Democrats have said a 1924 law explicitly gives them the authority to request the documents, but Mnuchin has denied the request, and now the matter is pending in federal court.

A focus of the fight is the mandatory audit program that the Internal Revenue Service conducts on the presidentís and vice presidentís tax returns.

As the fight has intensified, an IRS whistleblower in July filed a complaint with lawmakers and relayed concerns that at least one Treasury Department official attempted to interfere in that audit process.

On Monday, Neal sent a letter to Richard Delmar, Treasuryís acting inspector general, and asked for a review.

1. Oh.

"Well officer, don't look in the basement right now because I am doing a lot of remodeling and it is just a total mess down there."

Of course, there are several bodies buried in the basement.
