Ex-IRS Contractor Sentenced To 5 Years For Leaking Tax Documents

 January 30, 2024

Finally, Donald Trump is seeing some justice done.

A former IRS contractor who pleaded guilty to leaking tax documents belonging to the former president and other well-off Americans was recently sentenced to five years in prison and ordered to pay a fine of $5,000.

Charles Littlejohn pleaded guilty back in October to one count of taking tax return information without authorization.

He was charged as a result of leaking the documents to media outlets in 2019 and 2020.

"The scope and scale is unparalleled in the IRS's history," U.S. District Judge Ana Reyes said while she was sentencing Littlejohn. "You have caused and have risked causing immense harm to thousands of Americans."

"In the case of Mr. Trump's tax returns, he was under no legal obligation to disclose them," the judge said to Littlejohn on January 29. "What you did in targeting a sitting president of the United States is an attack on our constitutional democracy."
