A U.S. Tax Court judge ordered the Internal Revenue Service to disclose whether it brought a criminal inquiry against the Clinton Foundation.
The tax agency’s Whistleblower Office said in the past that no such inquiry was conducted by the Criminal Investigation division, but Judge David Gustafson insisted the claim “was not supported by the administrative record and thus constituted an abuse of discretion,” according to an April 22 ruling obtained by Just The News.
Gustafson sent the case back to the IRS Whistleblower Office to “explore” a “gap” in the agency’s records.
“The WO [Whistleblower Office] must further investigate to determine whether CI [Criminal Investigation division] proceeded with an investigation based on petitioners’ information and collected proceeds,” the judge said. “It seems clear we should remand the case to the WO so that it can explore this gap.” From Washington Examiner.
