OIG Semi-Annual Audit Results That You NEVER Knew Occurred.

This article is a series compiled by Lisa Evans Rockwell into the OIG Audits into a large variety of departments.  Each is broken down by individual audits and highlights of findings are provided.  Each comprehensive audit is included in link at end of each section.

Between October 1, 2017–March 31, 2018 something very interesting was happening.
The IG was AUDITING THE TREASURY!
This was a SEMI ANNUAL audit. There’s another one going on right now.

In the first audit, the work by the Office of Investigations resulted in 33 arrests, 35 indictments, and 21 convictions.  What else was in the Report the IG handed to Congress?

🚨The United States MINT GOT AUDITED!😲
👉Financial Management: Audit of the United States Mint’s Schedules of Custodial Deep Storage Gold and Silver Reserves as of September 30, 2017 and 2016 (OIG-18-003, 10/24/2017

🚨The GOLD RESERVES GOT AUDITED!😲
👉Financial Management: Audit of the Department of the Treasury’s Schedules of United States Gold Reserves Held by Federal Reserve Banks as of September 30, 2017 and 2016 (OIG-18-007, 10/31/2017)

That’s not all this Report tells us.
THE IG CAUGHT A LEAKER TOO.
“The complainant alleged that a senior staff member at a Treasury bureau may have released information regarding the existence of a DOJ and Treasury OIG investigation.”

💥Substantiated and Referred to DOJ for Prosecution💥

WHO instructed all these Audits to take place?

THIS GUY! Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin👊

All this was going on AND NO ONE KNEW ABOUT IT.
The Swamp IS being drained! First you have to discover the crime, then you deal the punishment.
It’s ALL getting cleaned up, one Department at a time.
Just like Candidate Trump said…’EVERY DEPARTMENT WILL BE AUDITED’.👊
