No wonder Donald Trump is ranting against Mueller, Rosenstein and just about everyone he can think of…..
The midterm break is over….
Mueller & Co. are back on the case….
And stop listening to those people who say Mueller is wraping things up….
He and others aren’t…..
Federal agents have reportedly raided the Chicago City Hall office of a lawyer who previously did tax work for President Trump.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that federal agents removed everyone from the office of Chicago Finance Committee Chairman Ed Burke on Thursday morning, covering the floor-to-ceiling windows with brown paper.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office declined to comment when contacted by the Sun-Times. A man who answered the door of the office when a reporter knocked also declined to comment.
Burke’s office did not immediately respond to The Hill’s request for comment.
Burke worked for Trump for more than a decade doing property tax work.
Burke’s law firm of Klafter & Burke has worked with Trump’s companies repeatedly to reduce the property tax that Trump Tower and his other properties in Chicago have had to pay, according to the Sun-Times.
Over his 12 years working for Trump, Burke was allegedly able to cut the property taxes on the downtown tower by more than $14 million.
Burke stopped working for Trump this summer, citing “irreconcilable differences” in letters filed with the Illinois State Property Tax Appeal Board….
The raid was done in Illinois ….
Are we adding the US Attorney’s office in that state to other Mueller satellite US Attorney Offices handling the Trump investigations in NY and Maryland?
