I have become convinced that the FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller III already has possession of the republican President Donald Trump’s IRS tax returns. My reasoning (speculation only) is that it would be incumbent for the FBI to have access to the tax returns at an early stage in order to pursue a competent criminal investigation regarding the president’s financial dealings.
The FBI could have obtained the president’s tax returns in secret with an ex parte order from a federal judge, and because Mr. Mueller runs a tight ship, there would be no leaks regarding this.
Renato Mariotti, a former federal prosecutor in the Securities and Commodities Fraud Section of the United States Attorney’s Office in Chicago who has prosecuted federal obstruction of justice cases has been thinking along these same lines.
