New York Attorney General Files Lawsuit against Trump Treasury, IRS

New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit against the Treasury Department and IRS, arguing that the agencies have failed to respond to information requests about its guidance reducing donor disclosure requirements for certain tax-exempt groups.

“My office depends on these critical donor disclosure forms to be able to adequately oversee non-profit organizations in New York,” said James, who filed the suit alongside New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal. “Not only was this policy change made without notice, but the Treasury and the IRS are also now refusing to comply with the law to release information about the rationale for these changes. No one is above the law – not even the federal government – and we will use every tool to ensure they comply with these regulations to provide transparency and accountability.”

Meanwhile, Rep. Peter King blasted special counsel Robert Mueller for not informing President Donald Trump and the American public sooner that there was no collusion between the Russians and Trump or his campaign associates, Fox News informed.

“It couldn’t have taken Bob Mueller that long to find out ​[about collusion.] The reports we get are that they knew a year ago there was no collusion. Well, didn’t [Mueller] have an obligation to tell the ​president of the United States that? To let the world know?​” King told John Catsimatidis on his AM 970 show “The Cats Roundtable” in an interview that aired Sunday.
