Forbes must be really hurting financially. Too bad. It was once a respectable publication.

Will the brain damage of the Leftists ever be reversed?
I give it about a 1% chance.

There's actually a pretty 'meaty' idea hidden in there
half way towards the end
but you'd need to read ...

The punchline is the last paragraph !
Cheers OP



...the CIU -- comprised of 2,200 special units who chase tax cheats, unearth white collar crime, and, yes, carry a gun -- is the only federal agency that is permitted to investigate potential criminal violations of the tax law, a sign that Mueller may be ready to take aim at what is perhaps the President's most well-guarded secret: his tax returns.

As a reminder, despite campaign promises to the contrary, President Trump has broken from long-standing tradition and steadfastly refused to make his tax returns public.

Understand, however, that the IRS may never need look at the President's return in order to close its case.

It could, for example, examine the tax returns of those close to Trump, namely his former campaign CEO Paul Manafort, who Mueller's team is reportedly attempting to "flip" in hopes of gathering evidence against the current administration.

There have been rumors -- cited in the Daily Beast article -- that Manafort may have failed to disclose his foreign investments on his tax return, a process that requires the simple checking of a box.

The Criminal Investigation Unit is not limited to reviewing tax forms in hopes of finding a stray unchecked box or suspicious deduction; however, it has a broad reach that extends well beyond the traditional tax realm.


For example, when CIU agent Jeff Novitsky began what some called a 'crusade" against steroid users in baseball in the early 2000s, he was able to expose Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Alex Rodriguez as cheats -- and obtain an obstruction of justice conviction against Bonds for lying to a grand jury -- by first investigating the steroid producer for money laundering.

If you're wondering why President Trump doesn't simply kill the investigation by appointing a trusted associate as the head of the Tax Division -- a group within the Justice Department that would be required to approve any charges brought against the President -- well, it turns out he could have, but never did.

As the Daily Beast points out, the President has neglected to appoint an Assistant Attorney General to the Tax Division, a move that he may come to regret as Mueller and the Criminal Investigation Unit dig deeper into the President's financial affairs.


because: Forbes, of all publications !

From someone who doesn't agree with you, YET isn't brain damaged and not willing to disclose political beliefs due to name calling if I actually was an adherent to something you don't like.

If Attorney General Sessions wasn't so susceptible to being blackmailed, CNN would have been charged with high Treason months ago.

What's ironic and sad is that the people in power...those who can DO MORE than merely spout meaningless opinions, are do-nothing wimps.

You must have read a different article than me. All I see is Forbes summarizing the allegations.

Not while the US Constitution is still in place.

It's really easy to see who the enemies of America are.
