A whistleblower recently came forward with information about how the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) enables insider trading amongst Congress.
According to a New York Post report, this ‘snitch’ also told reporter John Crudele that higher ups at the IRS routinely use that insider information to enrich themselves as well.
Crudele noted that this culture of insider training inside the swamp has been the status quo for a great many years.
“Up until a few years ago members of Congress were allowed to trade stock based on information they got while performing their public duties,” Crudele said.
However, it is still easy to work around those new rules. This is why Congressmen tend to become multimillionaires after obtaining office despite a relatively meager annual salary of taxpayer dollars.
Crudele said he brought the information to authorities and was essentially told to get lost. As expected, the swamp members will not move to cut off their own gravy train.
“Back in 2003-5 a memo was created within the IRS noting who was permitted to participate in ‘insider trading’,” the whistleblower said to Crudele. “The memo noted that all IRS employees in the executive branch and those one step below (territory managers, etc.) were permitted to participate.”
“I was below that rank by one step,” said the whistleblower, who claims that he used to be a “large case manager” at the IRS before he went rogue. “However, as my evaluation showed I was expected to inform my manager of any and all mergers.”
The whistleblower then opened up to Crudele with the juiciest of tidbits about how the IRS violates the law.
“So the one day I was informed of a merger between [two big companies.] I was the case manager on that audit. I refused to inform my manager,” the whistleblower said. “It seemed that the supervisor had planned on paying off his home mortgage with the merger information to the tune of $1 million plus.”
“In addition my supervisor had planned on informing his manager who then could contact members of Congress so they could invest and profit from this information,” he said. “It was a way of securing a comfortable job on one of the boards like the Smithsonian once they retired.”
This is why Donald Trump was elected, and it is also why he is facing unprecedented resistance from the federal government he is presiding over. The deep state is real, and the criminal class in Washington D.C. is effectively above the law!
