Trump's handpicked IRS chief and IRS legal counsel both have ties to Trump businesses
President Trump personally lobbied Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to prioritize the confirmation of his nominated Internal Revenue Service chief counsel on Feb. 5, about the time House Democrats started talking seriously about telling the IRS to turn over Trump’s tax returns, The New York Times reports. On Feb. 27, the Senate confirmed the nominee, California tax lawyer Michael Desmond, and now Desmond will be advising the IRS on how to respond to House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal’s (D-Mass.) request for six years of Trump’s personal and business tax returns.
As a private tax lawyer, Desmond had briefly advised the Trump Organization on what a spokesman called a “discrete” IRS reporting matter before Trump took office, Bloomberg reported last July, and he worked alongside two current tax counsels to the Trump Organization, Sheri Dillon and William Nelson.
Trump’s IRS commissioner, Charles Rettig, meanwhile, owns 50 percent shares of two one-bedroom residential rental units in the Waik

Qatar admits it ‘unwittingly’ bailed out New York skyscraper owned by Jared Kushner’s family

Fox News Shep Smith and Andrew Nepolitano now see proof of 'collusion' between Trump's team and Russia
Paul Manafort’s lawyers, through a PDF malfunction, revealed this week that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has evidence that Manafort, when he served as Trump’s campaign chairman, shared internal campaign polling data with an associate believed to be a Russian intelligence asset. This is a big deal, Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano told anchor Shepard Smith on Wednesday.
“This shows that Bob Mueller can demonstrate to a court, without the testimony of Paul Manafort, that the campaign had a connection to Russian intelligence and the connection involved information going from the campaign to the Russians,” Napolitano said. “The question is, was this in return for a promise of something from the Russians, and did the candidate, now the president, know about it?” That would be “a conspiracy,” he added, regardless of whether the Trump campaign actually got anything of value from the Russians.
