Lawyer for Ensign Peak Whistleblower Speaks Out About 60 Minutes Episode

Should the IRS investigate the LDS Church's wealth? On this episode of Mormonish, cohosts Rebecca and Landon dissect the recent statement made by Ensign Peak whistleblower, David Nielsen's lawyer, Michael Sullivan, in response to the 60 Minutes Episode. This statement clearly outlines the position both whistleblower David Nielsen and his lawyer take regarding the claims the church made on 60 Minutes and the puts forward the reasons the IRS needs to proceed with an investigation. We also reference a recent Salt Lake Tribune article on the same topic, "Pressure builds to investigate LDS Church wealth" by Tony Semerad, which discusses the lawyer's belief that the government needs to do it's duty and launch an investigation. We found that the lawyer's statement clarified several things many of us had questions about and brought to light other aspects of the controversy. Let us know what you think, does the IRS need to follow through on an investigation of the LDS Church and its wealth?
