WASHINGTON D.C. — Special counsel Robert Mueller has obtained the help of agents from the IRS' Criminal Investigations unit as his investigation of President Trump and Trump officials continues, sources close to the investigation told the Daily Beast. The agents will reportedly gather information in search of financial crimes.

Potential violations of financial law are a large component of Mueller's probe. And the IRS unit has greater expertise in investigating these crimes than the FBI itself, said Martin Sheil, a retired IRS Criminal Investigations Agent.

"IRS special agents are the very best in the business of conducting financial investigations. They will quickly tell you that it took an accountant to nab Al Capone, and it's true," Sheil said.

Paul Manafort, Trump's onetime campaign manager, may be one target of their combined investigation. Sources indicate that he may have neglected to disclose his foreign bank accounts on his tax returns, which is a felony if true.

The IRS also has access to Trump's IRS records--which Trump has consistently resisted disclosing to the public.

The Justice Department has a tax division, as well, and Mueller will need to get its formal approval before he can bring any charges against Trump associates if the charges pertain to tax law. Career officials now head up this division as Trump has not yet named a new director for it, and a former tax division prosecutor said that this could cause Trump some trouble.

"The fact that there is not a senate-confirmed Assistant Attorney General for the Tax Division, and that the Trump people have disregarded it despite warnings as far back as December that they needed to fill the AAG's spot shows what a self-created mess the Trump administration has found itself in," said the former prosecutor.
