Keep dreaming. I don't think the IRS has been ignoring crimes.
The 2nd Trump whistleblower is an IRS official who alleges a Treasury Department political appointee tried to interfere with Trump's tax audit
There are very few government officials who have access to the president's and vice president's tax returns.
- 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.
- According to The Post, the person accused of trying to interfere with the audit is a political appointee at the Treasury Department.
- "The president's and vice president's tax returns are kept in a top-secret vault," one Justice Department veteran told Insider. "It's code-word-protected, the whole nine yards, and not just anyone can get in there. There are very few people — the head of the Treasury, the head of the IRS — who have access."
