CREW says he may have lied to Congress about IL real-estate investment

Mick Mulvaney, a former District 5 congressman from Indian Land and current Trump administration official, is under fire from a national government-watchdog group.

The group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), has asked the heads of a congressional committee and the inspector general of the Federal Reserve System to launch an investigation into one of Mulvaney's Indian Land real-estate investments.

In an April 30 complaint sent to the Federal Reserve’s Inspector General Mark Bialek, along with the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, CREW alleges that Mulvaney should be investigated for misleading the Senate during his January 2017 confirmation process and failing to pay debts lawfully owed by his company.
