Wyden Statement on Trump Targeting of Comey, McCabe

Washington, D.C.— Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement in reaction to New York Times reporting on Donald Trump requesting IRS investigations into his political enemies:  

“No one is surprised Donald Trump tried to sic the IRS on his political enemies. He has no respect for the rule of law, and operates like a mob boss. For Republicans concerned about the potential for IRS political targeting—the calls were coming from inside the house. The Inspector General is investigating this disturbing matter, and I plan to reach out to General Kelly given the latest reporting from the New York Times.”
