Steve Mnuchin Can’t Answer Basic Questions About IRS Presidential Audits

Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) asked Mnuchin during a hearing if the mandatory presidential audit would encompass previous tax years if the person who became president had been under audit for those years. Mnuchin’s inability to answer such a basic question about the IRS’ presidential audits comes on the heels of his refusal to comply with a federal law allowing congressional tax-writing committees to obtain any person’s tax returns. Mnuchin rejected Neal’s lawful request by insinuating that the committee’s interest in IRS presidential tax audits was merely a pretext to obtain and disseminate Trump’s tax returns for partisan political purposes.

This USC Crew Team Poster Could Help Exonerate Lori Loughlin In The College Admissions Bribery Scandal! – Perez Hilton

Many took this as a jab at Loughlin’s daughters, whose parents allegedly paid $500,000 to have them designated as members of the women’s crew team — despite the fact that neither played the sport.
