An IRS official was convicted for releasing confidential information about President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen. The Daily Caller reports:
An analyst with the Internal Revenue Service was charged Thursday with leaking the financial records of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.
An affidavit submitted in the case reveals that John C. Fry, the analyst, placed several phone calls to attorney Michael Avenatti before and after he accessed Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) that had been filed by Cohen’s banks with the Treasury Department.
Avenatti, an attorney for Stormy Daniels, had posted a dossier of Cohen’s financial reports on May 8, 2018. The records showed that Cohen received payments from several companies, including Novartis and AT&T, as well as a company associated with Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian oligarch.
The documents released by Avenatti also contained financial records of a different Michael Cohen.
Government agents that put partisan politics above their constitutional duty are despicable.
