While the nation is fixated on a whistleblower with intelligence and what they do or don't know about Donald Trump's call for the Ukrainian president, another whistleblower is waiting for the wings.
A federal employee told the Ways and Means Committee last month about possible evidence of & # 39; inappropriate influence & # 39; in the IRS audit on Trump's tax returns.
The existence of the whistleblower was submitted to a federal judge in a silent motion by committee chairman Richard Neal in an attempt to obtain the president's tax returns and was not widely reported at the time.
But Nancy Pelosi's announcement of an investigation into accusation at Trump, which will involve the Ways and Means Committee, has brought the claims to the attention.
Richard Neal, chairman of the Ways and Means committee, has also been contacted by a Trump whistleblower about & # 39; inappropriate interference & # 39; in the president's tax returns – but chose to keep their existence still & # 39; in an effort to protect their job & # 39;
Neal claimed in the entry that his committee needs a copy of Trump's return to check whether the IRS is doing its job by checking both the president and the vice-president.
As proof that the IRS is not doing its job, Neal recorded a letter that he wrote to Finance Minister Steven Mnuchin on August 8, saying that the & # 39; credible allegations of & # 39; received proof of possible misconduct & # 39; & # 39;
The unsolicited message contained evidence that indicated & # 39; possible & # 39; inappropriate efforts to influence the mandatory audit program & # 39; & # 39 ;, Neal wrote.
He also revealed that the whistleblower contacted him for the first time on July 29.
Neal offered to tell Trevor McFadden, who oversees the case, about the evidence in a closed meeting.
A committee spokesperson said this week that McFadden, a Trump nominee, has not asked for more information from the whistleblower.
No judgment has yet been given in the case and McFadden has rejected a motion to speed up the procedure.
Adam Schiff, leader of the intelligence commission, went out with claims from a second whistleblower that Trump had an inappropriate phone call with the president of Ukraine
Trump admits that he has asked Vlodomir Zelensky (left) to investigate allegations of Joe Biden corruption, but denies putting pressure on him to do so with US military aid as leverage
Representative Lloyd Doggett from Texas told Huffington Post that Neal deliberately stopped the whistleblower in an attempt to protect their job.
It is in contrast to the chairman of the intelligence committee, Adam Schiff, who quickly became known when a whistleblower contacted the inspector general of the intelligence service about concerns about a phone call Trump had with Vlodomir Zelensky.
A copy of the whistleblower's complaint would be announced on Thursday, but is probably based on a transcript of the call that the White House published on Wednesday.
In it, Trump asks Zelensky for help in investigating allegations of corruption related to Joe Biden through his son Hunter, and a gas company that he once helped run in Ukraine.
Trump is accused of withholding hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid from Ukraine to deliver on the promise, which is not made clear in the call.
The allegations have led Democrats to investigate allegations.
It is not clear whether the whistleblower of intelligence has actually seen the transcript and may have been alerted after the correct protocols have not been followed when submitting it.
Nancy Pelosi has launched an investigation into Trump's accusation behind Zelensky's allegations concerning the Ways and Means Committee
Washington Post Security Correspondent Shane Harris tweeted Wednesday night: & whistleblower complaint alleges an embezzlement pattern in the White House, in which officials have moved the archives of some of Trump's communications with foreign officials to a separate computer network from where they normally are being saved. & # 39;
Democrats and some republicans who viewed the complaint privately on Wednesday said it & # 39; very disturbing & # 39; and justified further investigation.
However, Chris Stewart, a republican member of the committee, said the complaint did not contain any information that was not in the transcript and said he was not worried about the president's downing.
For his part, Trump has defended what he described as a & # 39; very nice call & # 39; and he repeatedly attacked Democrats and the & # 39; unfair & # 39; media that, according to him, are obsessed with the & # 39; witch hunt & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Accusation for that? & # 39; Trump asked incredibly while he & # 39; transparency & # 39; promised and said he will probably release a transcript of his extra phone call with Zelensky.
