Two U.S. senators are reportedly moving forward on an investigation into charges, from a staffer at the IRS, that political appointees at the Treasury Department meddled into a planned annual audit of President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.

The Washington Post reported Monday, citing anonymous sources, that Sens. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), the chairman and ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, will schedule follow-up interviews with the whistleblower’s allegations.

The unnamed Internal Revenue Service (IRS) staffer reportedly filed a complaint in July alleging that a Trump appointee at Treasury improperly attempted to interfere with a regular annual audit of the president’s and vice president’s taxes.

The allegation first surfaced in an August court filing by Rep. Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.), the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which is seeking access to Trump’s tax returns. Grassley criticized Neal at the time for not vetting the allegations completely before divulging details about them.

“Talking about the existence of a complaint before taking the time to speak with the whistleblower or follow up on the whistleblower’s complaint is irresponsible,” he said in a statement.

White House officials have dismissed the whistleblower’s complaint, saying the charges are politically motivated.

“I have never seen or heard of so many liars, (if they don’t show then they are liars).” Karin You are confused about whistleblowers, Karin. Have YOU ever called an anonymous tipline about a crime? What do you think would happen to you if you did but the police published a transcript of what you said and included your personal ID for the criminals to find you? Remember, YOU did this ANONYMOUSLY with the expectation that you would receive no repercussion even from possibly lying. Whistleblowers, on the other hand, take great risks by coming forward KNOWING that they will… Read more »

General confusion biased and barking on command as usual how surprising. Ever wondered why they bring up accusation after accusation, and it’s not stuck once been discredited each time? The “law and order” people are upset because we know the rich elitists abuse people, and break the law daily with absolutely no consequences to their actions while we do. They hate Trump because he’s brought their BS to light and bucked against them. They make fake life ruining claims against his supreme Court pick because he was Trump’s pick, and they want liberal dominance to pass whatever laws further their… Read more »

William: “Have you also noticed it’s been one thing after another since day one, and each time it’s been proven to be absolutely false?”

Which things have been proven false?

I am confused.

How is it possible that the “law & order” crowd are so blind to corruption in THIS administration when we ALL know that they would be up in arms (possibly literally) if a Democratic administration did the same thing. You know it and I know it. This sort of topic would be the subject of screaming headlines until somebody’s head rolled.

For THIS administration it is (literally) Tuesday.
