“Littlejohn faces a maximum five years in prison, the Justice Department said.”
A consultant working with the IRS was recently charged with leaking tax information on Trump and other wealthy individuals to news organizations.
We saw a lot of this kind of thing when Trump was president. These people see themselves as heroes of the ‘Resistance’ or something.
UPDATED: IRS consultant charged in massive leak of taxpayer data
A consultant for the IRS has been charged with leaking to the news media private tax information about former President Donald Trump and thousands of the nation’s wealthiest people.
Charles Littlejohn, 38, of Washington, D.C., stole the files while working as a government contractor and gave them to two news organizations, the Justice Department announced Friday.
The agency doesn’t identify the outlets, though it appears to be referring to ProPublica and the New York Times.
In a court document, the government says the leaks included information about “Public Official A,” which a person familiar with the charges confirmed is Trump.
Littlejohn faces a maximum five years in prison, the Justice Department said.
This guy is the Ray Epps of stealing tax return information. According to the corrupt DOJ's own press release, an IRS official stole "thousands" of tax returns and leaked them to the left-wing media, and they're charging him with a single criminal count. https://t.co/8j8pFyNl9g
