According to a new report, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation could be branching out to Donald Trump’s tax returns.
The Daily Beast reported on Thursday that has brought in the Internal Revenue Service’s Criminal Investigations unit into the Russia probe.
“The FBI’s expertise is spread out over so many statutes—and particularly since 9/11, where they really focused on counterintelligence and counterterror—that they simply don’t have the financial investigative expertise that the CI agents have,” Martin Sheil, a retired CI agent, told the Beast. “When CI brings a case to a U.S. Attorney, it is done. It’s wrapped up with a ribbon and a bow. It’s just comprehensive.”
With the CI helping the investigation, Trump’s tax returns may finally come to light.
