Mueller Taps IRS for Help with Trump-Russia Investigation

Special counsel Robert Mueller has enlisted the IRS to help investigate whether Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to meddle in the presidential election.

The IRS’ Criminal Investigations unit, known as CI, is an investigative group that specializes in financial crime, from tax evasion to money laundering.

One of Mueller’s top deputies, Andy Weissmann, headed the Justice Department’s investigation of Enron.

Mueller likes working with CI.

“From the agents, I know everyone has the utmost respect for both Mueller and Weissmann,” Martin Sheil, a retired IRS Criminal Investigations agent, told the Daily Beast. 

“The FBI’s expertise is spread out over so many statutes—and particularly since 9/11, where they really focused on counterintelligence and counterterror—that they simply don’t have the financial investigative expertise that the CI agents have,” Sheil continued. “When CI brings a case to a U.S. Attorney, it is done. It’s wrapped up with a ribbon and a bow. It’s just comprehensive.”

News that Mueller is working with CI came one day after it was discovered that Mueller enlisted the help of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
