Mark Zaid, the attorney representing the whistle-blower who sounded the alarm on Pres. Trump’s dealings with Ukraine and triggered an impeachment inquiry, says he is now representing a second whistle-blower who has spoken with the inspector general.
This newest whistleblower brings allegation about possible misconduct in the IRS presidential tax-return audit program.
House Democrats are focused on a separate whistleblower complaint that President Trump allegedly urged Ukraine to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. But progressive groups are also banging the drum over the tax complaint, urging leaders to disclose more information and arguing it could be crucial to Democrats’ oversight.
