Biden management investigates ‘unlawful’ leak of Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Warren Buffett’s tax knowledge
“The unauthorized disclosure of confidential government information is illegal,” mentioned Treasury spokeswoman Lily Adams. “The matter is being referred to the Office of the Inspector General, Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, all of whom have independent authority to investigate.”
“Any unauthorized disclosure of confidential government information by a person of access is illegal and we take this very seriously,” White Space press secretary Jen Psaki advised journalists all over Tuesday’s briefing.
Psaki additionally reiterated the Biden management’s stance on having rich American citizens pay extra taxes to fund the President’s proposals.
“I’m not going to comment on specific unauthorized disclosures of confidential government information. I can tell you that, broadly speaking ,we know that there is more to be done to ensure that corporations, individuals who are at the highest income are paying more of their fair share. Hence, it’s in the President’s proposals, his budget and part of how he’s proposing to pay for his ideas,” Psaki mentioned.
