FIRST ON FOX: Six New York Republicans demanded that Attorney General Merrick Garland open an investigation into the Empire State’s own state Attorney General Letitia James after Nikki Haley’s political nonprofit had its tax filings leaked to the media.
Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., led the Tuesday letter with five of her colleagues to Garland calling on the attorney general to launch an investigation into the leak of a conservative 501(c)4 Stand For America’s 2019 tax filings that included a donor list. The leaked list bore a stamp from James’ office.
The filings were leaked by Politico in late August after being provided the documents by the political watchdog organization Documented, who did not say where they got the documents from. The published documents appear to have the stamp of the New York Attorney General’s charity office.
