Report: Trump’s IRS Nominee Failed to Disclose Trump-Linked Property Ownership
President Trump’s nominee to run the Internal Revenue Service, tax lawyer Chuck Rettig, did not disclose that he owned properties at the Trump International Hotel Waikiki and Tower, Politico reports. Rettig disclosed his 50 percent stake in two Honolulu units but failed to mention that the units were in a Trump-branded location—an important detail considering Trump often profits off those sales through licensing fees. Rettig reportedly bought the units in 2006. The location of the units was revealed in a Senate Finance Committee memo Wednesday, and Rettig will face the committee on Thursday for a hearing on his nomination—where he will likely be asked about the properties and his disclosures.
